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.

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 available for you Deep Divers. For the rest of ya, listen up and write it all down. :)
Go to if you want to contribute, and thanks in advance!
This episode covers public speaking, ignorance, the 50 burpees a day challenge, being special, victory, self confidence, a good way to validate when you know what you're doing, bringing up curious children, the savage sitter idea, cryptocurrency tax advice, and the books I'm reading:
-The Secrets of Champions (yes, you can get it cheaper than Amazon sells it for, this link just turns you on to the right book)
-The Invention of Nature (an excellent birthday present from Mom!)
