In this episode Ron chats with the famous author and Co-Founder of Scribe Media, Tucker Max. Here they discuss his writing career and how it has evolved since his college years. He talks about the depression he felt after the movie about him struggled to perform to expectations, how he overcame that depression and started Scribe Media, his family, direct primary care, and more. He also dives into how, historically, some brilliant works of literature were born from people being cooped up in quarantine during pandemics.
He’s written four New York Times Best Sellers (three that hit #1), which have sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide. He’s credited with being the originator of the literary genre, “fratire,” and is only the fourth writer (along with Malcolm Gladwell, Brene Brown and Michael Lewis) to have three books on the New York Times Nonfiction Best Seller List at one time. He was nominated to the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential List in 2009.
He received his BA from the University of Chicago in 1998, and his JD from Duke Law School in 2001. He currently lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife Veronica and three children.
