Phil Hellmuth is a 14-time WSOP bracelet winner, the chief poker practitioner of White Magic and, if the recent WSOP Nov. 9 broadcast can be believed, possibly the inventor of GTO.

GTO? I invented it.

Tim Ferriss is the author of global best sellers The 4-Hour Work Week and The 4-Hour Body, an internationally renowned speaker and host of the #1 business podcast on iTunes.

He's also known as "the Oprah of Audio," which, kudos. That's a pretty baller nickname.

According to Twitter the two got together for a 3-hour interview for Ferriss' new Fear(less) TV show yesterday.

The show will air on the AT&T Audience Network in 2017 and feature "in-depth, long-form conversations" between Ferriss and "top performers, focusing on how they’ve overcome fears and made hard decisions, embracing discomfort and thinking big."

Along with Hellmuth guests will include ESPN founder Bill Rasmussen, illusionist David Blaine and comedian Bill Burr among others.
