Thanks for checking out the Nik Hawks Show, where my general mandate is to follow the pursuit of excellence. 

My background is in business, adventure, the military, athletic challenges, and working with world class athletes.

Those are all starting points for my guests, though not always.  I've talked to cryptographers, sleep scientists, authors, reporters, climbers, and adventurers.

All of them have useful insight for YOU, which is the reason I make the show public.  

Whether we're talking about cryptocurrency or rowing a boat across the Atlantic, my idea was to share the conversations I was having with radical people.  Lately I've been adding in my own thoughts in separate Nik-i-sodes.


I started this podcast in 2014, but it wasn't called The Nik Hawks Show. My wife Lee and I own the company Paleo Treats, so I called the show the Paleo Treats Podcast.

Over the course of 50+ episodes it became apparent that the podcast didn’t really have anything to do with Paleo. Sometime around episode 58, based on feedback from listeners and iTunes reviews, I decided to change the name to reflect what I was actually talking about.

That should catch you up to speed for now.

Thanks for the push, Jamie A!  This one's for you.  For the rest of ya...

I had a rad guest lined up who got themselves in a spot of trouble stealing deer stands in Utah.  Suffice to say there's more to the story than has been generally reported, but since he's gotten death threats I figured adding information to the...

Charlie is my kind of adventurer.  Father, husband, pilot, sailor, and general fixer of anything broken, Charlie's been a mentor and example to me for a long time.  Listen in to hear how a regular guy has lived the life you probably dream about.  More at

This is a short spoken word piece, less than 5 minutes.  It came to me the other day in my truck and I recorded the initial effort.  Over the following few days I wrote it all down, refined it, pruned it, made it closer to what I was hoping it would be.

It ended up (as of 26Sep2018) in this format.

As you've noticed if you've followed along lately I've seen the stats: I get twice as many downloads for solo shows as I do for interview.
It's been 6 episodes since I did a solo show so I've got a bunch of notes from driving around that we have to catch up on; here they are!
As always, the Nik Hawks Notes are...
