I created The Bus Driver Experience as a way to gain a new perspective from the unique lives of other people - Olympic athletes, monks, porn stars - to not just learn, but EXPERIENCE what it’s like to be in their shoes for a day.


And do it in a way unlike how every other travel/interview show does it. Most other shows merely talk with these individuals.

But talking with these people isn’t enough for me.


I want to live their unique story. To understand not only what they go through in their day to day, but also why they’re doing it. Follow me on YouTube for videos of the experiences with my guests, and other content.

Being a sumo wrestler himself, he’s been in the ring a few times - becoming US National Sumo Champion multiple times and has even competed at World Championship events at the international level.


Over the years, he’s become a crucial part in representing sumo overseas. So much in fact, that in 2012, he was inducted in the Martial Arts History Museum’s Hall of Fame.

  • How Andrew started, and how US sumo became the biggest tournament outside of japan.
  • What are the differences between japanese sumo and american sumo. And how sumo is like joining the military.
  • What the hierarchy in pro sumo is like. And how insane the thought that people dedicate their entire lives to be one is.

  • The main 3 or 4 most fundamental exercises in sumo wrestling.
  • How japanese sumo has been received in the U.S. And what are the general reactions people have when they watch a match for themselves.

Antonio "Scoop" Jardine - Basketball Is Life - #001

How does someone go from playing in the NBA to creating programs for troubled kids off the street?


Everybody, meet Antonio “Scoop” Jardine @scoopjardine. NBA basketball player turned entrepreneur who owes everything he knows about business from what he learned on the court.


After losing his little brother in a street shootout and finding himself drift away from basketball, Scoop, to help out his community, started the Basketball Is Life foundation - a basketball-based school program aimed at helping troubled kids off the streets. A chance to give them opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.


I’ve known this man for over 10 years. He was one of our star players back when we played together at Syracuse Orange and we’ve been in contact ever since. The stories and experiences he has to share around his life are incredible to listen to. And I hope you get as much from listening to him as I did. So please, just sit back and enjoy the show.


In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What starting a school program for helping kids is like and how that helped him love basketball again.
  • How Scoop got his first job in business by reaching out to his old fans - and how powerful your connection can be when you need the help.
  • How awkward it is to flex for thousands of people so you can be auctioned off for charity.
  • How much of a DRILL SERGEANT our coach was in college and what hilarious situations ensued because of it.
  • Scoop’s philosophy on how similar being a quarterback or point guard is to being a CEO and how that translates into business.
  • And much more.
