Listen Now


For centuries, all sorts of people – generals and politicians, athletes and coaches, writers and leaders – have looked to the teachings of Stoicism to help guide their lives. Each day, author and speaker Ryan Holiday brings you a new lesson about life, inspired by the thoughts and writings of great Stoic thinkers like Marcus Aurelius and Seneca the Younger. Daily Stoic Podcast also features Q+As with listeners and interviews with notable figures from sports, academia, politics, and more.

This podcast is an excerpt from a conversation at the Daily Stoic that was built to mirror the kind of education that produced historically great leaders like Marcus Aurelius. Ryan reads talks to Dr. Randall Stutman about the difference between feedback and advice, the important distinction in being subtle and being manipulative, how great leaders see themselves as stewards, not owners, and more.
