Once referred to as “The Larry King of podcasting,” Jordan Harbinger is a Wall Street lawyer turned talk show host, social dynamics expert, and entrepreneur. For 11 years, he hosted The Art of Charm Podcast, which is regularly in the iTunes top 50 and downloaded over four million times a month.
Jordan has embarked on a new adventure, “The Jordan Harbinger Show,” where he deconstructs the playbooks of the most successful people on earth and shares their strategies, perspectives, and insights with the rest of us, interviewing the world’s top performers. Throughout his career as a host, Jordan has interviewed Neil deGrasse Tyson, Russell Brand, Shaquille O’Neal, Simon Sinek, General McChrystal, Tony Hawk, Larry King, Mike Rowe, Chris Hadfield, Penn Jillette, and many more.
Jordan has always had an affinity for social influence, interpersonal dynamics, and social engineering, helping private companies test the security of their communications systems and working with law enforcement agencies before he was even old enough to drive.
Jordan spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and he speaks five languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped — twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation.
Tune in to hear Jordan, Steve, Mary, and Richard discuss how to upgrade your mind with wisdom from the most brilliant people.
