But this guy is weird. He just seems so fake—like some weird AI imitation of a human being. Remember Tom Hanks in Polar Express? That but a real person

Could you please cut back on the ads? It’s so distracting and unauthentic.

I really love starting my day listening to this podcast! It’s always very uplifting and thought-provoking. Ryan Holiday does an excellent job!

When we temperature there is no cold on the scale. Only an absence of heat. When I measure how good something is there is no bad on the scale only an absence of good. This podcast my friends is all good.

A small thing but I have to say it: Marcus Aurelius was adopted by Antoninus Pius and not by Hadrian. Antoninus Pius was a wise emperor and he is one of the five good emperors of Rome. However the podcast is my preferred and it saves my life every day.

Haha I posted on this book on FB in Nov 2020. Good choice. You guys totally misrepresent the debate on freedom. You take a reductionist approach to the argument for freedom. They don’t mean you don’t answer to any group. Everyone knows there’s no such thing as pure freedom. Freedom depends on...Read full review »

In this day and age, we need this philosophy to keep us grounded. Although it is from the ancient times it is still applicable today. Timeless. Recitation by the author is also flawless. Brings energy and emotion to the words being said. I should come back to it more often than I do.

I love Ryan’s podcast which I must include in my daily morning ritual. His enthusiasm and knowledge for Stoic philosophy teaches me how to actually bring the four virtues into my daily practice and living. It’s a refreshing reminder of how to be a rational human within this distracting culture in...Read full review »

It’s my own fault for wanting to finish every episode but I have to unsubscribe. I wish there were two versions - one for the daily shorter bits of wisdom episodes and one for the longer episodes. Combining the two is too time consuming for me with my other podcasts and by eliminating this one...Read full review »

Stoicism is a life changing philosophy and the daily stoic is great at providing topics for reflection and discussion in a few minutes a day. Love it, intelligent and well produced
GDoak45 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/01/21
This podcast means so much to me. Stoicism is the code I live my life by, and Mr. Ryan Holiday is just the genius to deliver my daily dose. You can read all the literature and practice all the meditations but I recommend EVERYone add this podcast to your daily routine. The way Ryan speaks and...Read full review »

Great podcast. Have learned so much from reading Ryan’s books and emails and from listening to these podcasts. Highly recommend subscribing to his daily stoic email list (and daily dad one if you’re a father). I mostly read the daily stoic emails and listen to the podcasts where he has guests on....Read full review »

I love this podcast I listen to it everyday Thank you
goose 80 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 05/28/21
I always felt that these podcasts are quite problematic as they claim to teach Stoicism but contradict a lot of it. I wasn’t planning to rate the podcasts as I usually prefer to keep my thought to myself. However, when the speaker referred to people who give low ratings as ‘crazy’ and spoke about...Read full review »

Great presentation! Great podcast. How I start my morning!
nickanderhoey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
This podcast is now part of my daily routine and I love the wide variety of guests Ryan has in turned introduced me to. Thanks to all involved!
SLbassGB via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/28/21
I’ve struggled with building and sticking to morning routines for as long as I can remember but the Daily Stoic podcast has not just given me something to build the rest of my routine around, it gives me a great excuse to reflect and spend some time with myself. Almost 6 months into this, and I...Read full review »

Listening to The Daily Stoic podcast or reading The Daily Stoic email has become an important part of my morning routine. It puts me in a good frame of mind for the day and allows me to reinvest in my stoicism before life and work responsibilities barge in. Thank you for this great content!
Elly Shaw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
I don’t use Apple Podcast, I use Spotify. I had to download this app just to leave a review because it was the right thing to do. This podcast provides a moment of philosophical coherence and moral clarity for a young man like myself. Please keep it up. Keep making these episodes. You are...Read full review »
SAGER786 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/28/21
Episode 152. I’m surprised at Mr. Holiday calling people “crazies” just because he disagrees with them politically. Is that stoic? I’m not too sure it is. Retired Navy seal Brandon web kowtowing to an apartment half-full of gays, so that they will rent to him!? Not what I’m used to hearing from...Read full review »
Need smaller pants. ;) via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/21
I’ve just recently gotten into Stoicism thanks to The Obstacle is the Way and will plan on reading Ryan’s other books. This podcast has great information and is certainly great if you agree with his political views. I still plan on listening from time to time because, after all, the Stoics say...Read full review »

Ryan, and this podcast have changed my life! Following Ryan, his books, and stoicism has been a game changer for my life both with my family and friends and in my career. Thank you Ryan for all that you do for others, for leading by example, by serving others and keep striving to be a better...Read full review »

When Ryan has melodramatic negative reviews upsetting both the left and right, he’s doing something that’s actually fair and balanced. Having honest discussions means pissing off some of the political extremes. Keep up the great work!
Chitown Jamie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/21
Enjoyed many of his podcasts - makes you think, worth the time
Evz222 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/21
I was so desperately wanting this to be a great podcast, and in so many ways it really is but to have even this infiltrated by your views on current news and events is enough to make me unsubscribe immediately. I have worked so hard in the last year to remove news from my life, and was hoping...Read full review »

I’m not satisfied with just listening to the podcasts great for when you’re on the go but now I’ve become a student . Thanks Ryan

Always love Ryan’s thoughts and his guests.
JP 0926 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/21
My husband got me hooked on Ryan's books and podcast. I look forward to walking our dogs and listening to the longer ones on Saturday's. Today's is maybe one of my most favorite ever. Incredibly insightful and a must listen!Read full review »

Drops of wisdom. Every single day. Keep up the good work, Ryan!
Jorge Bravo via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 05/15/21
Solid stoic wisdom, except the host seems to have fallen prey to the CDC narratives and may be blind to how society is vastly being brainwashed. I’m a bit concerned about people who aren’t skeptical of the government mandates these days.
Ethomp44 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/21
Love listening to Ryan’s episodes and especially enjoy the guest speakers.
hannahthomas27 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/21
Discovered on TikTok and look forward to daily meditations. Great way to start the day.
ex Bayswater Julie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/21
In the shorter daily doses of Stoic wisdoms, often the ads will take up more runtime than the actual info. When the listener’s interaction with the content is less a fluid, meditative experience and more an exercise in precise fast forwarding, it’s more exhausting than nourishing. Hope they fix...Read full review »

Enjoyable, inspiring and humbling. I’d recommend to everyone and anyone looking for ways to live a better life.

Once again Ryan - this not being my first review - your wisdom and message has had an extraordinary and immeasurable effect on my life. Words are not enough to describe the change it’s sparked in me and my work, all I can say is THANK YOU.
Lelona Vuza via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 05/10/21
This is the best podcast to get you through everything, it brings you a different perspective of life and apparently the right one.

Great show.
P. Munro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/21
This podcast has often been the voice of reason and strength that I have needed when I feel like I’m in the pit of hell. It has given me wisdom and clarity that has transformed my life in numerous ways. I highly recommend anyone to listen to this and then apply the snippets of wisdom to your own...Read full review »

Great podcast. Don’t agree or love everything that he says and does. But at the end of the day that’s what happens when you have a life advice podcast based on an ancient philosophy that releases a daily episode.
Josh Danton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/21
Ryan Holiday is so awesome! I listen to this podcast and the Daily Dad Podcast everyday and it has changed my life.

I really enjoy listening to this every day. Gets the day off to a good start.
Niall42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/21
Lately The Daily Stoic has become a must in my mornings. It always gives me something to think of and to reflect throughout the day while introducing me into stoicism and into Marcus Aurelius' Meditations.Read full review »
egarlo via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 05/06/21
Very riveting daily podcast teaching the stoic philosophy and explaining how we can apply it to our everyday lives. Bit by bit, by narrating the lives of prominent stoic philosophers and describing various historical moments, it helped me get to the crux of stoic philosophy and ignited my...Read full review »
Giorgi1994 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/06/21
There are several options out there for daily stoic guidance. None, in my experience, have been so easily incorporated into my daily routine, so varied in its content, or so deeply knowledgeable while being so effortlessly relatable. Ryan Holiday brings calm, assured insight to stoic philosophy....Read full review »

A really incredible podcast. Ryan and his team are amazing. I’ve learned so much about stoicism and it’s changed my life.

Really hits home over and over again
@BlaineStewart10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/21
Love the podcasts - Ryan brings forward provocative views and perspectives. My only feedback to Ryan is that it is becoming too Commerical and he is constantly pushing his and others’ products. It is becoming aggravating to keep hearing commercials. I am often fast forwarding through those...Read full review »
