Episode 32: Bob Lefsetz


We’re back with the season debut of The Art of Humanity!

We’ve got a brand new season that focuses on empowering the next paradigm of creativity.

Today’s guest is someone who aligns with my mission for truth and humanity: Bob Lefsetz. Bob is the writer of the independently produced Lefsetz Letter, which according to the LATimes is read by just about everyone who’s anyone in the music industry. He narrates our fast-paced culture with impeccability and courage and isn’t afraid to speak the truth.  

I started following Bob’s blog back when I was working at Sirius XM, and it became clear that his influence on culture is of historical importance. Bob’s strong opinions shape music. And music, in turn, shapes culture. So, in a sense, this interview goes behind the lens of what shapes the fabric of our society today.  

Bob and I sat down to discuss how he started writing, advice he has for aspiring writers and musicians, the future of writing, and why it’s important to be a hermit on purpose.  

We also cover some important questions:

  • How to make a living as a writer
  • What does journalism mean today?
  • How can women make it in the music industry?

I’m so excited to share this interview with you.

Let’s go to the show!

  1. Bob really cuts through the illusions and helps listeners understand the value in perseverance. I can relate to his inspiration to write and how it simply arrives to him throughout the day. I call it musing. Something that I’d consider a gift, that’s been present, since childhood (speaking for myself). [It’s actually something I’ve really never taken full credit for. More so, an acknowledgement, that I am merely the conduit, through which this energy flows, quite automatically.]

    In addition to interviewing influential thought leaders, Jessica herself, is also in a league of her own—forging a path for others to learn and build from, that will help usher in more authentic communication and worthwhile exchanges with one another, on an exceptionally dynamic human level v. an emotionless, marketing level. Which is necessary as we progress in an ever-increasingly, technological world.

    Spirituality, more than ever, is essential for many of us to capitulate, lest we lose sight of our origins. She’s an amazing host and each podcast I’ve listened in on, has been incredibly insightful and applicable to my own entrepreneurial pursuits and personal life. Bridging the divide, so to speak between the mind, body and spirit. I’m looking forward to hearing more interviews and reading your book! Keep up the great work.
