E227: Seth Rogen Opens Up About His Self-Doubt & Struggles That Nobody Sees!

Seth Rogen is a comedian, writer, director, and producer whose films have together grossed $2.8 billion at the box office. In comedy since he was 12 years old, it's all he's ever known, and he's one of the biggest comedy forces on the planet. Opening up for the first time on the dementia diagnosis that tore his family apart, as well as the toll that bad reviews can do to the people who make films, Seth is a good guy trying to make his way in an industry that famously rewards bad behaviour. He tells us what that's really like. For many people, Seth provided the narration for their adolescence with iconic, classic movies like Superbad and Pineapple Express - hilariously mining his own fumbles on his journey into adulthood for comic effect. Now, through his weed company Houseplant, he takes people on a journey of a different source as the supplier of one of the most popular sources of legal weed in North America.

Om Podcasten

A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, living in a studio-flat in a rough area. At 18 I started a company which would eventually become "Social Chain" - an industry leading marketing company. At 26 the company was generating $600m a year in revenue. At 27 I resigned as CEO, and launched 'The Diary Of A CEO' podcast with the simple mission of un-filtering success and giving you the knowledge you need to create the life you want.
