Episode 63.5: Fridays with TK – “How I Was Almost Luke Perry”

What does it mean to sell out, water down, or compromise who you are?

What are the unseen costs of doing so, and the unseen benefits of resisting?

Today we discuss this in depth, including stories about how TK could have been as cool as Beverly Hills 90210’s Luke Perry if he hadn’t given in to peer pressure and how I nearly ended up a drug dealer.

Here’s Paul Graham’s essay referenced in today’s show.

Also mentioned were the books The Education of Millionairesand, The Last Safe Investment.
