Rolf Potts met me in Tompkins Square Park to talk to me about travel. Rolf wrote one of my favorite books of all time called Vagabonding. It’s all about long term travel. It influenced the hell out of me. And I was so stoked to be able to talk about getting out there in the world with such a well worn traveler like him.

ASST #104: The Art of War with Greg Jackson (photoshop by @VoodooBreath)

Greg Jackson of Greg Jackson’s MMA met me in a hotel room in Vegas a few hours before UFC 156. Greg has always asked me about standup comedy and how comics will handle different situations. After some time he told me why he was so interested. He sees similarities between all art forms. He tries to find universal truths that apply to many art forms so he can apply that knowledge to MMA fight theory. It’s really fascinating stuff. We’ve been talking about this stuff for years now and it’s so interesting to me. If, like me, you thought everyone associated with cage fighting were meatheads, you’re about to get a beautiful reminder of how people from all walks of life can offer you growth and knowlege.
