Tim Ferriss is a self-experimenter and bestselling author, best known for The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been translated into 40+ languages. Newsweek calls him "the world's best human guinea pig," and The New York Times calls him "a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk."

The Chartcast is a long-form interview show presented by TC & Georgia, two anonymous Twitter personalities born out of a skepticism of Tesla and Elon Musk.

Each episode we interview a journalist about a longform or investigative piece that they’ve written. We cover how the journalist came up with the story idea, how much pre-reporting they did before they pitched it, what the pitch looked like, and then how they went about writing and reporting the story. The podcast is meant to serve as a resource for students, and journalists who’d like to learn more about their craft.
