Awesome   (5/5)

A friend recommended this to me—thankfully. Fantastic and knowledgeable guests interviewed in a competent, delightful manner. It’s more like listening in on a conversation between a couple of smart people. Highly enjoyable.

Awesome Podcast!!!   (5/5)

Matt, host of The Science of Success podcast, highlights all aspects of success, growth and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!

Fluff, in search of substance   (3/5)

I get the need to promote and share ones work and accolades and may have to purchase many books referred to Yet I keep longing for the substance and sharing of the actual steps needed for behavioral changes and integration and it is not forthcoming. I find much of the content rather obvious and am looking for more workable, insightful and current kernels of wisdom from the wonderful researchers and more how to apply. I’ve listened to three so far and find the talk is more about the peripheral landscape rather than the core.

Best podcast!   (5/5)

I’m obsessed with this podcast. Great hosts, great guests, great information. Always learning something new. Keep up the good work guys!

AHA! Turned Experiment   (5/5)

While learning from Matt and guest Michael Bungay Stanier on the 7/16/20 podcast, an AHA! experiment came to mind to help me slow the rush to advice-giving and to stay curious a bit longer. My Advice Monster (AM) is “tell it”. When listening to others, I have a strong urge to be “helpful” and share my AHA! insight (aka: AM instinctively jumping into action) and, instead, want that urge to diminish in frequency/intensity and for curiosity to grow stronger in its place. As soon as advice comes to mind, I will not “tell it” ... but, instead, “test it”. * My next thing spoken must be a question—specifically one that elicits info to help indicate if the advice would have been “helpful”. * This will utilize my competitive side to productively shift me away from being a “tell it” know-it-all. * In lieu of needing to be helpful, being curious this way will strengthen humbleness.

Interesting and Engaging   (5/5)

Always learn something new, variety of speakers. One of my regulars.

The definitive toolkit for lasting personal growth   (5/5)

There are countless podcasts that focus on "self-improvement", most of which offer motivational content that may provide momentary inspiration. But what happens when the sugar-high wears off?

Great podcast, precise to the point, pragmatic   (5/5)

Best podcast ever! Thank you so much for super valuable interviews and materials.

Best In-depth Interviews of Experts & Top Performers   (4/5)

Matt is a brilliant interviewer! I greatly appreciate how much research he does on every person and topic, along with crafting engaging and interesting questions. The reason for four stars: the recent changes in ads. They don't seem to fit the podcast at all, there is no transition music, and it's no longer Matt's voice.

Information a great way!   (5/5)

Matt's excellent interviewing skills make listening a pleasure. The key points are discussed and when it benefits the conversation, he digs deeper to enhance and clarify the topic. I listen during my commute, but often need a second round at home to fully focus and comprehend the information. The show notes are great memory joggers as well. Thanks for you time and commitment Matt and continued success!

Best podcast ever.   (5/5)

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work. I have learned so much from your podcast. So many beautiful, meaningful, and informative messages. Thank you for all that you do. 😊

Excellent!   (5/5)

Can't wait for each episode! I re-listen to old ones and have been listening for YEARS. Content is always fresh, minimal if any recycled episodes. Matt puts in real effort with each interview and never slacks with great questions and discussion. Combine this with the show notes on Matt's website and you have the full package of useful, quality, easily retrievable info!

Great series   (5/5)

I just starts listening to these podcasts and find them very interesting. I am always learning something new.

Really enjoying this podcast   (5/5)

Matt and his guests have taught me so much. I’m always excited to discover what new concept will be discussed when a new episode is made available. I’m never disappointed by the topics, the guests, or the discussions. Consider me a true fan!

Informative Podcast   (5/5)

Matt Bodnar interviews people who are filled with knowledge of our brains and our bodies and why we think and do the things we do. Finally, my questions have been answered. Thank you for all the work that you do and please keep it going. You may put my counselor out of business! 😂😉

Not much science in the science of success   (2/5)

It was disappointing that the discussants did not seem to be aware of the scientific research related to the topic. Any of it.

Just recently discovered this one. It’s a great one.   (5/5)

I just cam across this one and I found lots of past episodes with amazing guests. The format of the show is optimized for maximizing value to the listener. I highly recommend this show.

Life Changing   (5/5)

There’s a specific episode that when in a funk, I listen to on repeat. However, almost every episode I’ve found to be entrancing. If you follow the the counsel as if it were admonition, you are onto something.

This podcast is one of my two favorites   (5/5)

Update: Still in my heavy rotation, would not miss an episode, great content

Relevant Podcast   (5/5)

I started listening to Matt about a month ago. I listen to an average of 12 podcasts per week. Matt has a format I really enjoy. He researches his subject very well and has some surprisingly good guests on his podcasts. Some podcasts can get a little long on a subject, but Matt has hit the sweet spot of information and length ( a mix that is hard to accomplish). The best thing I could say about the Science of Success, if I only had 3 podcasts I could listen to during the course of the week, his would be in that group. Great job Matt, keep up the good work.

Amazing   (5/5)

I recently got into listening to podcasts since I now have to commute to work and I stumbled upon this one which has literally made my way to/from work so much more enjoyable! I highly recommend this podcast. Love the topics!

Engaging   (5/5)

Lots of very engaging topics, presented in a lively manner.

Dynamic podcast   (5/5)

What makes this podcast so good is that the host is an excellent listener - no rude interruptions, no power plays, just good questions coupled with the art of listening. Thank you!

Very motivating and insightful   (5/5)

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I always learn something new from a wide variety of very interesting guests. I get excited when I see a new episode available. I also recommend signing up for the email.

New listener!   (5/5)

I started listening a couple of weeks ago. I found myself listening to one episode after another. Very introspective and encouraging ! Thanks to Matt and your crew!

So Helpful!   (5/5)

These shows have helped me enrich my life in all ways - personal, business and future! I love the content and the guests chosen, and Matt is a wonderful interviewer. I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Hmm .. pseudoscience alert   (3/5)

Been listening for a few months. Titles are kind of bait-y. That I can deal with. However, some of these interviews are from people successful in business, not actual researchers or scientists. Nothing wrong with success, but it does matter who is interpreting actual research and speaking on it. Otherwise, we get sensationalism and, at worst, pseudoscience.

Research and learning based - exactly what I need   (5/5)

I’m a huge advocate for continue learning and self-improvement. I listen to a lot of podcasts - sometimes to get the latest news, but mainly I listen to podcasts that provide value where I can better myself in different ways. Matt’s podcast is one of my favorites right now. Every guest has research to back up their theories. I actually learned a lot of practical and easy to implement tactics. Plus Matt is a great interviewer, he doesn’t interrupt guests and really give the guests time to fully explain everything. Keep up the good work Matt!

Always reference!   (5/5)

I’ve shared this podcast with family members, very cherished friends and well respected colleagues. I consider myself lucky to have access to the Science of Success. 👍🏼

Top Tier Personal Development   (5/5)

One of my favorite podcasts. Do yourself a favor, expand your brain and listen. You’ll learn more here than most MBA programs.

Always Inspiring!   (5/5)

I absolutely love this podcast! Discovered by accident and have been a devoted listener ever since. I come away from each episode inspired, even when I didn’t think I would relate tot he topic... and have found so much applicable to my life, career and family! Thank you for the work you do, and helping me continue to learn and grow and become a better version of me!

Great, intriguing listen.   (5/5)

I have listened to several episodes now and have been impacted by each. I find myself sharing the podcast and knowledge with everyone around me. It is very easy to listen to and the volume and clarity is better than most that I listen to - perhaps a weird comment but it matters a lot to me!

Follow the bread crumps   (5/5)

I found Matt's podcast in the most unusual way. One click led to another and from a list of more than 50 podcasts I decided to start listening to this one. I got hooked right away and have listened to many episodes. I followed Peter Shallard after I listened to his inteview and joined Commit Action and I'm grateful that I did. In less than two weeks I have accomplished goals that I wanted to work on since March of 2019. I look forward be interviewed on this podcast in the future. I use Evernote and have captured so many ideas since I found it. Thank you Matt.

Without Rival   (5/5)

I’ve listened to hundreds, if not thousands of self help podcasts, CDs, and even DVDs and read as many books. I can tell you Matt and the SOS are without rival. He is discerning in his choice of guests, and his interviews are very well crafted, always investigating the philosophy and teaching, but including the pragmatic. Warning, this will replace all your other self help/success podcasts!!

Fantastic!   (5/5)

Matt crushes it in this podcast! Such powerful information on mindset that is backed by science. It’s a really unique mix of speakers. Highly recommend.

Love this podcast   (5/5)

Life changing with baby steps   (5/5)

The owner of my local running store recommended this Podcast to me. I’ve never listened to a podcast before but I needed something to inspire me to put my life in a healthier and productive mode. I’m hooked and “all in”as I have shared with friends and family. Matt is amazing and I love the simplicity and common sense approach that’s comes across from him as well as from his incredibly talented and professional guest speakers. Please keep doing what you do. Thank you

Dr. Weisinger interview   (5/5)

Excellent podcast. Self-help for smart people indeed- except that the topics and language are completely accessible, fun, and easy to listen to. Evidence-based means it's been researched and proven effective. Never boring, always intriguing... the only problem is that I want to listen to and do it all at once and that's not possible. Keep up the great work, Matt. And thank you!

Dr.   (5/5)

Matt is a curious, articulate curator of psychological wisdom and evidenced-based practices. I'm addicted to this podcast and have greatly benefited from it. The Science of Success is the embodiment of high performance.

New discovery - love this podcast   (5/5)

I’m not sure how I stumbled upon Matt’s podcast but I am so glad I did. As an Organizational Psychologist, I appreciate science-based conversations around personal development.

Success   (5/5)

Always look forward to your podcasts !!

Worth the time   (5/5)

Great job of translating the latest science into actionable strategies.

Practical, Empirical, Inspirational   (5/5)

The Science Of Success has easily been my favorite podcast of 2018! As a clinical psychologist, professor, and learning science researcher, I appreciate Matt’s choice of guests and the way they distill the information into easy-to-digest principles. The discussion always leads toward actionable steps a listener can put into practice in their own life. The only downside for me is I end up reading too many books at one time because I am interested in all of them!

Every week is thought provoking   (5/5)

Matt interviews thought leaders in performance psychology every week. He is obviously well read, truly passionate about the topic, and is a great interviewer. Topics range from brain chemistry to evolution of mind. He also provides extras in his weekly emails, print outs and YouTube videos, which are very useful.

Great podcast for science minded people   (5/5)

Love this podcast! Always great info and concrete strategies on how to achieve desired outcomes.

My 1% 🙌🏼   (5/5)

I just love this podcast! My favorite episode is with James Clear on habits and I’ve dubbed it the 1% episode. Really rich content on making small positive changes that add up. Always great content in every episode.

Waste of time   (1/5)

Way too much empty talking with barely any substance. Pretentious and commercially oriented

Amazing!   (5/5)

I started from the beginning and have loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to catch up and keep up. I’ve learned so much and I’m eager to her about the next topic. Great guests and great interviews.

Life changing   (5/5)

This podcast has really opened a new door in my life. It inspired me to quit a job i had dragged through and hated for almost 4 years. I was in a bad place and Matt helped me develop tools I had never been able to tap into. My journey is far from complete but the Science of Success has been the staple in adding change and real self confidence and self control to my life.

Don’t even read my comment just press play   (5/5)

This show is even better than what I thought I was looking for when searching for a podcast on personal growth. Not only is there a large variety of topics covered, but they are all evidence-based tips. Love this concept. Thanks Matt!

The Shocking Counter-Intuitive Science Behind The Truth of Positive Thinking   (4/5)

I learned from this podcast but I appreciate more exchange between Matt and his guests. This felt a bit like a college lecture.

Top notch quality content for entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to always do their best!   (5/5)

I’ve done a ton of self study on psychology and brain science. This podcast and been an awesome refresher and expounder on some of the most interesting things I’ve learned about how us humans work! It’s also taught me some great stuff I don’t know and some actionable strategies on how to maximize my productivity. Thanks Matt Bodnar for putting our such high quality, engaging, and interesting content!!

Fantastic for Performing Artists   (5/5)

As a professional classical musician, I find this podcast essential listening! It is right up there in my top 4 podcasts, and I find myself WAITING for the next episode to be released. Matt is a fantastic interviewer and picks currently relevant guests that share immediately valuable and actionable steps. I’m always motivated to practice after listening, even though it’s not directly about music. Thanks for the great work on this Matt! (And nope, I don’t personally know Matt!)

Awesome Podcast!   (5/5)

This podcast is one of my go-to’s for ‘self-help’. Subscribe and 10x your life!

Batting a thousand!!   (5/5)

Just found this podcast two weeks ago. I’ve listened to 10+ episodes so far and EVERY one has been insightful and inspiring! Thanks Matt please keep them coming!

Helps prioritize and focus your choices.   (5/5)

With so much information to listen to and read the SoS, helps me prioritize where to focus my time. There are so many incredible people to learn from in these podcasts & Matt asks many of the questions I’d like to ask them myself !

This is a great podcast   (5/5)

I've been listening to Matt's podcast for a few months now and all I can say is I wish I had found this sooner. I've been introduced to so many new ideas and insights from so many impressive people. I've read some excellent books written by guests Matt had had on his show. Keeps me thinking and moving forward in life. Highly recommended.

Very thorough, great for learning   (5/5)

I stumbled across this podcast after reading Carol Dweck’s mindset book and have been hooked ever since. This podcast always invigorates and inspires me and leads me to discover something new that I can use to make my life better in every episode.

Worth listening to every episode.   (5/5)

Detail questions are ask by the host and end all interviews with a “homework” you can implement in your day to day life.

5-17-18 Five Things You Never Knew About Building Self Esteem   (3/5)

Had rated this SoS a 5 after listening to several episodes, but I just listened to the 5-17-18 podcast and was perplexed and disappointed that these constructs (ego, self-love, etc.) were used. I don't think these fall in the realm of science anymore. Philosophy/religion or something. Disappointing and puzzling.

Short, Sweet, and Right to the Point   (5/5)

Great podcast with much valued information. Amazing guest speakers.

Comprehensive and Information   (5/5)

This turned out to be a really great podcast listen to a few episodes now and overall I am satisfied. Subscribed!

One of the few...   (5/5)

This is one of the few podcasts that I've NEVER unsubscribed from, and NEVER deleted to make more space on my phone. It is an absolutely essential podcast. I've been listening for at least the last 2 years, I think longer though. This podcast has helped me in so many ways, the content is always relevant to my life and to my healing journey. So much good content, so many amazing guests, I am constantly inspired by this podcast!

Never a bad episode   (5/5)

I learn something new all of the time and love sharing this with the students and teachers that I work with. Thanks Matt!

Too much advertising   (1/5)

Dude, you need to go easy on self promotion and advertising, it shows that you are making the podcasts for the money and it is annoying for the listeners. Go make money somewhere else and clean up your podcasts.

Awesome   (5/5)

Keep up the good work. Love the fact that so much is rooted in science, gives a little different feel and perspective than most of the other similar podcasts out there

Love it!   (5/5)

I’ve always been a music-in-the-car kind of person and didn’t think I’d want to listen to people just talking on podcasts... especially since my ride to/from work isn’t very long. However, I am a huge believer in continuous, personal growth so I thought I’d check out a few and thought they were fine... but it wasn’t until I came across The Science of Success that I realized what an opportunity I’ve been missing! Not only do I love the topics, but Matt’s gifted ability to ask enriching questions helps guide the discussion and adds so much value and perspective to the already great content. What a fun podcast for inquisitive minds!

Science has support for Success   (5/5)

This podcast proved itself most useful last semester at Washburn University. I started listening after one of my Psychology professors came to class raving about how she avoids television, and listens to podcasts. I had been struggling, and I sought out some motivation by browsing various Psychology and/or self-help related shows, when I stumbled upon The Science of Success. Since listening, I’ve been able to better structure my time, focus on and prioritize tasks, improve my positive outlook on situations, and perform better under pressure. I was able to turn my semester around, and make the Dean’s List for the Spring semester. I must give some credit to this podcast for helping me find my drive, and how to build better, focus-driven habits. ~Jaltheaus Palmer Jr.

These Strategies Really Help   (5/5)

I’ve been listening to the podcast when i can for about a year. I’ve used many of the tips to help myself become more efficient at what I’m doing, and more impactful. Most of us in today’s professional world operate at a continuous time deficit, or even at time poverty. Putting the tips from this podcast to work for you can improve your outlook. I’m currently using the Commit Action service promoted by the podcast and am really looking forward to doubling down on the strategies learned in the podcast.

Love this podcast!   (5/5)

There are so many great ideas presented by Matt and his guests--hard to know where to start. Maybe a favorite is Essentialism or the one about 5 Things you didn't know about Self Esteem. Great listening and great ideas. Thanks for your work on this!! Keep them coming!

Thanks for your contribution   (5/5)

This is an excellent way to stay motivated, driven, on track, and learning to work on all the right things. Live listening to how the science backs all of the information.

Life changing material with how-to instruction.   (5/5)

Perfect for Motivating Self to Start on New Ventures   (5/5)

I’m so grateful that I came across this podcast last week. In just a few episodes, my life has been completely changed. I feel like it was tailor-made for my life and is exactly what I’ve been needing for years. It’s also amazing that the interviews continue to cover subjects that I’ve pondered for a long time and especially cool that the follow-up questions that Matt asks are always exactly what I would ask or are related to what I want to better understand! Whenever I’m feeling uninspired or unmotivated, I look through these podcasts and always find one that picks me up and puts me back where my mind needs to be. Thank you!! Update: I’ve listened to almost all of the podcasts since discovering them a couple months ago and I just wanted to thank Matt for creating this life-changing podcast. My life has been changed in so many ways-for the better, of course. As someone who has been putting in the work for the past 15 or so years to try and be the best person I can be, for myself and the world, it means something when I say that this has had the single greatest influence on me. I can’t thank Matt (and his guests) enough!

Fantastic!   (5/5)

I just listened to the Kevin Horsely episode on Memory Palaces and Journeys. I have often heard of these techniques and tried them, but have never heard such detailed descriptions of why it works. Matt’s line of questioning was intuitive, kept me interested, and wanting more info at the end. Great job!

Great information always   (5/5)

I am new to listening but I can already tell you the information I have received is so helpful personally and professionally. I can’t recommend a station more highly if you are looking for an evidence based way to make changes in your life.

Thank you Matt!   (5/5)

I really enjoy listening to this informative and thought provoking material... very interesting and positive!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

Very insightful, tons of scientific knowledge that is applicable and Actionable. This Podcast has a Tim Ferris feel to it, which I love. Look forward to listening to the new and older episodes. TWO THUMBS UP.

Master you Mind   (5/5)

Absolutely brilliant programs about the world’s most fascinating subject; the human mind.

Life   (5/5)

Outstanding advice. This podcast can change everything for you.

Best study podcast   (5/5)

These simple mind trick have helped me leaps and bounds with studying science. Thank you all for putting out great content!

Changing my life!   (5/5)

I've gotten really into podcasts since I started working from home. By far, the most positive, life-changing podcast I listen to is the Science of Success. It makes me aware of the current science on so many aspects of my personal and work life that I want to change for the better. Then, the next thing I know I'm changing my behavior because of what I've learned. Thank you, Matt!

Purpose, Passion, and Drive   (4/5)

Science of Success is an excellent podcast. I appreciate that the host gives adequate “run way” and lets each guest expound on their topics of choice. The result is in depth and interesting treatises on the principles underlying success and the ways in which we each interact with the world.

Insightful, Interesting, Useful   (5/5)

I recently discovered the Science of Success podcasts and from the oyset, on my first podcast, was intrigued and hooked. There seem to be themes and subjects enough to interest many people in different fields. I cannot claim expertise since I just started, but I would recommend you try one of the podcasts.

Audio Quality Mars Content Quality   (4/5)

No quarrel with the programming or credibility of the host or his guests. With that said, poor audio production values all but made the recent episode regarding memory techniques unbearable. The guest either had a cold or a breathing issue that unfortunately distracted me from paying full attention to his comments. To the producers’ credit they have acknowledged the problem and I’m hoping that future episodes won’t suffer from low-quality source audio or subpar voice editing.

Cheif Play Maker   (5/5)

Very informative, great content, love learning all the new stuff they post.

Insightful and interesting   (5/5)

I'm not quite sure how I first came across this podcast, it might have been the name, but I am sure glad that I did. Matt and his team do a great job at identifying some of the best minds and thought leaders spanning many different disciplines. I have a few all-time favorite episodes that I have listened to many many times. This podcast and it's team does not fail to deliver.

Awesome show, highly recommend!   (5/5)

Matt and his guests provide some incredibly actionable and compelling content, spotlighting the best tactics and insights on how to become the very best version of yourself. Highly recommend listening and subscribing to The Science of Success if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to live your best life (and reach your overall goals as a result)!

Inspiring and Insightful   (5/5)

I am a young professional in Nashvill, TN about to enroll in business school. I was interested in finding books, podcasts, and/or videos to prime me for academic rigors ahead. Luckily, I found The Science of Success. The subject matter is the same as many other's in the niche of success and self help. However, he does it differently, adds value that only he can add, and creates a culture around the podcast for listeners who want more. There are plenty of podcasters and bloggers who cover the same topics and enter the same discussions. However, Mr. Bodnar's presence, professionalism, and passion cuts through. I inspire myself by listening to the show. I'm also looking foward to hearing him speak in person.

Success!   (5/5)

Diverse and compelling topics, discussed with sincerely educated guests, make The Science of Success one of my "go to" podcasts. Matt does a great job asking meaningful questions about the business of being human. Excited to hear the next one!

Great podcast!   (5/5)

Very informative and eye opening series on new perspectives regarding diverse faucets of successful habits and techniques. I’m always excited for new episodes and the testimonies from the professionals in the field.

Free Education!   (5/5)

The Science of Success is a must for anyone wanting to live up to their true potential. Matt’s podcasts inspire, motivate and are jam packed full of science-based information. These podcasts will lead you to explore new books and experts in areas he’s covered on his shows. I recommend reading each show’s write up first; then listen to the podcast if you want to really lock on to the information.

Great Find   (5/5)

I was looking for Podcasts that were science/psychology based related to business. I randomly came across the one on Training you Brain- it was exactly what I was looking for.

Love.   (5/5)

As a rising professional, this podcast has made such an impact in how I think about success. Best of all, each episode gives actionable strategies to build a better, more mindful and focused you, allowing you ahead of the curve. I can’t say enough about this podcast, in fact, my friends have probably already heard too much because I won’t shut up about it. Matt is such an awesome host and asks great questions to pull as much as possible out of whoever he’s interviewing. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone. Thanks, Matt and keep up the stellar work.

Time To Learn   (5/5)

I love getting the podcast every week, because it always provides me with something new to learn or evaluate and see how it fits in my life

Matt always has a great guests that he discusses life changing ideas with. He’s well researched and this show has helped me a lot!

Glad I found this podcast.   (5/5)

I have enjoyed listening to the Science of Success. I have found the podcasts to be very informative.

Great Show. Positive Message. Shows That Everyone Can Win   (5/5)

I like the positivity and utility of this show. It really reminds me of how we can all play to win and grow and be better. Thats the beauty of this life. Other people’s success is fuel for you to succeed and this show really exemplifies that.

Fantastic   (5/5)

I love your podcasts! And yes it is hard to get people to write reviews and I almost deleted the email and then I read it and decided I really have to give you a review! I love this podcast! I learn stuff every time I listen and I’m all about getting my life organized and bettering myself, so every podcast has always been a win win! Keep them coming please! Thank you for all your hard work!

Great podcast that gets you thinking   (5/5)

This is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. It's always positive and I always learn something new. Matt brings on great guests from time to time as well. Through his guests, I've been introduced to their podcasts (which are also awesome) as well. Great podcast, keep up the good work Matt!

Favorite podcast!   (5/5)

I am an avid listener of This American Life, Radiolab, Serial, More Perfect, and What Trump Can Teach Us about Con Law, but my first go-to has become The Science of Success. The first few episodes I was distracted by it sounding like it was recorded in a fishbowl, but the content was addictive and I’ve now listened to every episode and have recommended it to many many people. I send many episodes to friends with whom I’ve had connected conversations, and they are always grateful and become listeners. I’ve bought the books of guests, downloaded the apps and use them, and have re-listened to some episodes multiple times. When there’s a lull in a convo, it’s this podcast I bring up to start an interesting dialogue.

Great look into neuroscience.   (5/5)

It’s been a pleasure listening to the different guests and topics on this podcast. Fascinating information into the physiological reasons we do what we do. Thanks Matt.

This is the best podcast you're currently not listening to.   (5/5)

I'm a much happier camper listening to podcasts (mostly humor based) than writing reviews of them and wouldn't if its host hadn't reached out to me personally and requested I do so. One episode (Influence Anyone With Secret Lessons Learned From The World’s Top Hostage Negotiators with Former FBI Negotiator Chris Voss from October 20th, 2016) turned into a fan an subscriber in record time. I listened to two more before writing this review to give the best review I could give. Check out this mission statement from the Science of Success podcast web site: "At the Science of Success , our mission is to unleash human potential..." If you're still not sold I suggest you browse through the episode list and choose one that sounds interesting to you. Happy listening.

Game Changer   (5/5)

From the intriguing guests on every show to Matt's ability to relate each one to his listeners, this podcast has changed the way I now see and think about myself and the world around me. I feel lucky to have found such a useful experience at this point in my life and now I can't get enough. Thanks Matt and guests!

Always informative and entertaining   (5/5)

This podcast never disappoints. The topics are unexpected and present fresh perspectives on age old problems. I always learn a lot and I keep coming back for more.

So much great info   (5/5)

Love to listen to it. My husband and I both listen to SoS while running (safely on the treadmill) and afterwards we talk about it and it's fun to discuss and exchange thoughts. Great podcast!

Love it   (5/5)

Insightful, helpful and really thought provoking.

Simply the Best   (5/5)

Initially I found this podcast because I was searching for Dr. Rick Hanson, and an interview with him is one of the Science of Success Podcasts. It's a fantastic interview on neuroplasticity - training one's self to focus on the good - - which is not at all natural, in order to balance out the natural proclivity towards focusing on the bad. After listening to my interview I noticed so many other interesting topics I listened to 4 or 5 others. The ones on influence are especially facsinating, who knew us humans are so easily influenced? What I especially like about this podcast is that "success" is not defined in within the narrow confines of politics or business - this podcast is about how to have a higher quality of life - be a success at being a human. So many interesting authors, philosophers, negotiators, public speakers, and researchers have been interviewed - I've listened to well over 20 of the podcasts by now - I suspect I try to hear them all

Rare podcast for self helpers   (5/5)

This podcast is incredible at taking out the fluff of self growth. The is podcast gives you a actionable roadmap that creates ideas into realities. I would not be the person I am today with out this podcast mentoring my journey on entrepreneurship

Excellent Material   (5/5)

Thoroughly enjoy the wide variety of topics and perspectives.

Best podcast ever period   (5/5)

Just recently started listening to The Science of Success" and find that I can't stop listening. Both the host and the people interviewed are fascinating. If you are looking to upgrade your brain, look no further.

Inspiring and practical!   (5/5)

I'm so glad that I found this podcast! I really appreciate that the ideas discussed are grounded in actual evidence. Every episode contains some fantastic nugget of information that resonates with me and each episode inspires me to read more, learn more and be more true to my values. I love that Matt asks each guest for concrete examples of how to integrate their research findings into everyday life. Thank you for this great podcast!

Never boring   (5/5)

I just listened to the Ryan Holiday interview and it's pure gold, because Ryan's awesome that way, but Matt is also a great interviewer. He does a great job drawing out interesting points and helps draw your attention to the guest, rather than to himself (like some other hosts do). He also does his research, like actually reading the books of the people he interviews!

Beyond interesting   (5/5)

This podcast should be a must for everyone! It explores interesting topics with great authors, scientists and entrepreneurs about success and performance. They leave out tips to improve your own performance and be a better being

Amazing podcast   (5/5)

This podcast is great. Wonderful lessons and the host does an incredible job.

Good start poor finish   (1/5)

I found myself hooked when I first started listening but after awhile I found the interviews longwinded and mostly fluff. I think we'll all be more successful if we just cut this, meditate a few minutes a day, and use the other half hour to actually do something

Dr. Leann Lilly   (5/5)

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Matt is an excellent interviewer, and asks such great questions. I love everything Neuroscience, and anticipate the next episode with much impatience. Keep up the great work!

AmazingPonies   (5/5)

You're the best! So glad I stumbled across. Enjoy your wisdom.

Raptorrexisalex   (5/5)



the podcast transformed my life. matt has been a true inspiration to me and i am always thankful when he shares his wisdom.

Profound and Useful!   (5/5)

I look forward to every guest that Matt brings on his podcast! Their scientific insight has given me the information I need to place myself in a healthy mindset to transition into a life I have always dreamed of living! This podcast will transform the way you think about everything. Thank you, Science of Success for your work, your "How to Organize and Remember Everything" guide, and please keep doing what you're doing!

A Blessing to Watch Grow   (5/5)

Matt provides terrific insight into the subject of human capital. He was gracious enough to meet with me recently and followed up the next day with a thank you email. He also shared his resources for starting a podcast including his producer. The content is always spot on and it's fantastic to see a host who is humble enough to take time out of his day to visit and look to his listeners for suggestions. The only problem I have is recently almost every episode has been so good I am usually spending money on follow up content because the topics has been or is currently something I personally want to improve upon. Keep up the good work Mr Bodner!!!!

Well done!   (5/5)

This is such an enjoyable show! Matt explores a number of aspects of "success" and has a variety of fascinating guests and topics. He covers the topics without subjecting listeners to tons of advertisements too which is nice. Thank you Matt!

Excellent podcast   (5/5)

I really enjoy listening to your show. Great topics, well researched, good tips and overall a great companion to my daily commute. I look forward to my commute to listen to your show. Keep it up!

Well worth your time   (5/5)

Credible episodes based on research and studies about how to be a better person and succeed in what you do. What makes this podcast exceptional is that it is not based on the experience of a successful person or people, the episodes are based on scientific research and studies. Thank you Matt!

Good cutting edge interviews   (5/5)

VERY helpful advice Although music sounds like Mystery Science Theater 3000 and audio is a little echoing sometimes

Always great information   (5/5)

Every episode inspires. Frequently, I have to listen to the same episode more than once because there is so much great content.

Quality Podcast   (5/5)

Don't wait to listen!   (5/5)

Real, motivating, and most of all interesting! This podcast won't put you to sleep and will leave you feeling empowered!

Game Changer   (5/5)

Matt gives you new ideas in every episode that will challenge you on how to grow your life. He's really on to something critical about how fundamental our mindset is to our life and how we can really control it. Matt is clearly a gentleman, scholar and athlete.

Worthwhile   (4/5)

Nearly every episode brings useful insights. Well worth my time. It's time to lose the echo-enhanced augmentation of the introductory speil - the program is better than that would indicate.

Inspiring!   (5/5)

I love this podcast series. After the first listen, I was hooked. inspiring and enlightening, I always come away with a useful piece of wisdom. I am a big fan of Matt's attitude towards life and business. I highly recommend the episode on the Life Is Good company but all episodes are really enjoyable and useful. Great job and thank you!

Science and Success - The One Place to Find it   (5/5)

I highly recommend @mattbodnar and his guests to everyone interested in personal development and leadership. He keeps a level of healthy realism by basing content on science. You too may truly enjoy. Let me know if you do @k_speckmann

Very informative!   (5/5)

Great podcast if you like psychology and being successful. Super professional and informative.

Excellent challenges to conventional wisdom   (5/5)

This podcast provides a plethora of expert thinkers who examine the mind, thinking and behavior. Take the time to learn the limits and potential of the human brain.

Best new self-improvement podcast   (5/5)

Matt has amazing guests each week. This podcast gives Tim Ferris a run for his money. If you are into life-hacking or general self-improvement, this podcast is a weekly must listen. Listen to one or two and you will be hooked. Content has only gotten better the last few months. Keep up the great work Matt!

Great content and discussions   (5/5)

Topics discussed are very interesting and thought provoking. Helps give you a different perspective and ways to think about things which ultimately lead to success.

Intelligent and Invocative   (5/5)

This is a superb podcast. Excellent for anyone interested in being top of his or her mental game. Love the quality of guest interviews on the podcast, Matt Bodnar is top notch!!

I've enjoyed listening to the podcast and the various guests. It is a fun way to hear new thoughts and get introduced to new thought leaders.

Incredible Resource   (5/5)

Great resource of focused, pragmatic information for taking your business and self discipline to the next level.

Love Science of Success   (5/5)

As a clinical psychologist I love the concepts presented in this series. As you begin to listen to the podcasts successively you begin to see common themes. It's this repetition in concepts and ideas that are fundamental to learning. I listen. I request my children (the oldest an avid golfer) and husband listen. And, finally, I have begun assigning podcasts for homework to my clients. I love the changes I'm seeing in myself, in my golfer son and in my clients.

Tactical, inspiring and informative   (5/5)

Matt's interview with Chris Voss just gave me 5 new tools for negotiating. I'm not sure if this podcast is so much better than anything else on the air because the guests are so generous and accomplished or if it's because the topics they cover are so timely and helpful, but I've never been disappointed with these experts. I also love the fact that he doesn't interrupt them, This podcast is an oasis of intelligent, independent thought and civility.

Super effective...   (5/5)

This podcast is awesome! I’ve barely begun to apply some of the knowledge that Matt shares in this podcast and it’s already made such a difference in the way I see my life and the decisions I make. I really appreciate the positivity of the show. Nowadays I feel that a lot of people need information like this, I mean if you don’t read too many self help books or speak to people who can support and encourage you, this show is a perfect stand-in for that, and more. The information shared in this podcast is stuff that other people charge money for, whether in books or seminars. Thanks for the show Matt! Good luck in all of your endeavors.

Great information, Science based   (5/5)

I love this podcast because it has little fluff. The content is sound and actionable. Way to go Matt! Can't wait to hear more.

Wealth of great info   (5/5)

Out of many, one   (5/5)

I have interests that span science, business, politics, sports, leadership, education... and the podcast space is crowded with options in all of those areas, but I find that Science of Success is my #1 highest priority to listen to each week. It's topics span all of my interests and I always find it both inspiring and fascinating. I have listened to nearly every episode since December 2015 and love them all!

Excellent investment of your time   (5/5)

Time is tight for those who are constantly driving towards success. Therefore one needs to be selective on choosing from the hundreds of podcasts out there. If you are going to select one podcast that will expand your thinking and provide non traditional methods based on science and research that will improve your quest for performance, this is the one. Matt does a great job in selecting quality Guest Experts combined with thoughtful Q&A, not to mention the frequency in which he provides great content as compared to others who only do monthly podcasts. Many thank Matt for the tremendous effort you put into this.

New Favorite podcast   (5/5)

Fantastic!   (5/5)

Matt Bodner does his homework and has thoughtful questions and insights every episode. This podcast is based on science presented in an accessible and applicable way. I listen to dozens of podcasts; this is high on my list of recommendations!

This is my first review and there is a reason   (5/5)

This is the first time I have left a review because this podcast is essential if you want to be successful. Success is such a relative term for anyone, maybe you want to be a CEO, professional athlete, or be a successful parent. I like how Matt brings people from multiple facets of life and lets them share their experience and wisdom. Something I really appreciate from Matt as an interviewer is that he does not control the interview, I have heard to many different interviewers from different topics just take over the interview, and all you think is why did they even have that person on? Not this podcast, the people interviewed go in depth on their work and ways that any ordinary person can be better. I have already recommended this podcast to my friends.

Refreshing & insightful---a must-listen!   (5/5)

Matt is super gifted at asking a question, stepping aside, and letting his guests dive deeply into their expertise. After meeting Matt last week, I gotta say the guy is polished & humble, which is rare. For folks wanting to re-work daily disciplines this is your show. It definitely made me think deeply about my own decision making processes. Top notch!

Insightful Podcast   (5/5)

Matt and his guests regularly cover topics that are both useful and interesting. I don't listen to podcasts regularly enough, but when I do The Science of Success finds itself at the top of my queue. Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve themselves and elevate their thinking to the next level.

Matt's podcast is a great source of insight into how our mind works. His ability to draw out the key points from some pretty scientific material makes listening really enjoyable and actionable.

Game CHANGER   (5/5)

I love the Science of Success!!! I have noticed things that I learn on this podcast become noticeable and useful in everyday life. Small things you never thought you were doing or should've been doing now become your own personal prescription to success. Matt Bodner never gets boring and always has great guests. Everything is backed by research that Matt makes available to you if you want to do you're own study.

Mr Yuri Figueroa   (5/5)

Really loving this podcast. The Science of Success is like that class we never had in school but that we should have had at least once a day. The intellectual resources that Matt and his guests throw out on every episode are super valuable. Inside of my head, it feels like some dominoe effect of some sort is triggered after I listen to an episode. Can't get tired of it.

More than just insightful, it’s applicable   (5/5)

Excellent podcast. I was hooked the moment I found out he was a Cialdini fan, and it’s been great to see him address such a wide variety of fascinating topics. He breaks them down very clearly and I always end each episode wanting to apply and recommend his suggestions. I encourage everyone reading these reviews to listen to it!

Awesome   (5/5)

I have always been annoyed with all the fluffy inspirational, success podcasts out there because they never dig deeper than just trying to make you feel good. This one gives me REAL, CONCRETE info on the science of how to make my life work better. Its easily the best podcast on iTunes for business owners like me. But honestly, this info applies to literally EVERY human being and everyone on earth could benefit from listening. Keep it up. You’re killing’ it!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

This is a great Podcast!

Fun and insightful   (5/5)

I love this podcast. During every episode I have to fight the urge to take notes instead of just listening. I wish I had time to read all of the books Matt recommends and further research all of the topics that catch my attention. I would love to have the same grasp of The Science Of Success that Matt does. Enjoy!

Accidental Favorite   (5/5)

I accidentally downloaded Matt's podcast a few months ago and fell in love. The broadcasts are informational and enjoyable.

An absolute must listen!!!   (5/5)

I can't say enough to positive things about the content in this podcast. Like many young entrepreneurs who are hungry for great content I listen to the podcasts of Tim Ferris, Mixergy, and many others. It's rare however that you find tangible realizations and actions in each episode, and Matt has delivered just that. The content is so rich and applicable in your everyday life you can't help but apply it, you'd be foolish not to. While listening to the latest episode on Mediation I was driving in the car and nearly pulled over. The insights around self awareness and controlling your mind through meditation made me realize how much negativity I had held onto in my mind that affected me every day, even though I didn't realize it. It's easy to hold on to negative thoughts when you are used to them. I began meditating using the Visualization Method Matt describes and the positive affect it has had on my quality of life is absolutely insane. This podcast constantly delivers and if the insights are applied, I guarantee you will see a different, more exciting world around you. Keep up the great content!

Fantastic Insight   (5/5)

Valuable information for any entrepreneur. Science of Success provides insight on my relationships with others, and a fresh perspective of the world around me. I've shared this podcast with everyone I know.

Thank You   (5/5)

The podcast is very thoughtful and entertaining. What’s cool is that a lot of the concepts are pretty easy to apply to your everyday life and are not just a lesson on psychology.

Actionable life lessons   (5/5)

Matt Bodnar knocks it out of the park with this one. The episodes are succinct yet thorough. He cuts to the core of key psychological concepts that form the foundation of habits that help you become more successful. The episodes not only explain why these concepts work in theory but make it easy to begin incorporating them in your daily life. Listening alone won’t get you to success but the episodes are an extremely helpful guide.
