Description

In the Darin Olien Show, each episode is packed with honest, inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same - to save the planet one conversation at a time. We’ll talk about how to fuel your body, boost your immune system and even sustain yourself on a plant-based lifestyle. We present tangible tips, tricks and methods to get you feeling your best and living your best life. My mission is to stop you from falling into society’s fatal conveniences- the things we do that we’re indoctrinated into thinking we have to, even though those very things are negatively affecting us, and in some cases, slowly destroying and killing us.

Performing night after night to sold-out arenas, pouring your heart out into every song, and drawing energy from the crowd must be an intoxicating feeling. But then after months of touring, it's over. How do you find balance between the extremes?  Welcome to the Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society's Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. Kenny Chesney is a country music megastar. And he’s also a good friend of mine. Kenny and I work out together and hang out together. He’s just a real, genuine, sweet guy. In 1997, Kenny had his first #1 Billboard hit with “She’s Got It All,” off his album I Will Stand. Even before that, he’s been selling out arenas all over the world and continues to do so. Standing in front of a 60,000+ crowd is a feeling Kenny struggles to describe. But it’s thrilling. He loves it. He thrives on it. He draws energy and magic from the crowd, and it gives him life. But then the tour is over, and he’s just a guy. That transition has proven to be extremely emotionally draining for Kenny. And he struggles to strike a balance between the extreme high of performing, and the silence of the time between touring. Kenny and I get into some deep stuff. I might not be able to relate to singing in front of massive crowds screaming my name. Still, I think we all can relate to feeling imbalanced when our work and personal lives are so different. In this conversation, which was recorded pre-pandemic, I share some tips and tricks to finding balance in a chaotic life. We also discuss Kenny’s eating habits, which aren’t always the best, but certainly entertaining. And he gives us some dirt on what it’s like to work with Ed Sheeran. You’re not going to want to miss this one, that’s for sure. Other great stuff in my chat with Kenny: How Kenny prepares his body for a tour The mistakes he sees other artists make What Kenny’s downtime looks like Why he struggles with balance Why fame doesn’t feed your soul How seeing Bruce Springsteen play live changed him The love/hate relationship Kenny has with ice baths The melodic genius of Ed Sheeran How 4th Period Geography class in high school ruined Kenny’s eating habits This episode’s Fatal Conveniences™ topic: Shampoo  Links: KennyChesney.com  (Look for rescheduled tour dates here) Kenny on Twitter Kenny on Instagram Kenny on Facebook Listen to Kenny’s song “Tip of My Tongue” co-written by Ed Sheeran SafeCosmetics.com Chemicals in Shampoo May Pose Health Concerns What are Parabens?

There are parts of us all that could use a little healing. But if you're in a self-destructive cycle, harnessing the power of nature could be the medicine that saves you. Let's talk plant-medicine and psychedelics.   Welcome to the Darin Olien Show,   On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time.   If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society's Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you.   In this episode, we're going well beyond the fringes of our perceived reality with a new buddy of mine, Carlos Tanner.   Carlos was living the ideal, all American dream. He had a beautiful house, a nice car, the perfect job. But what many people didn't see was his deep dissatisfaction with life, and a spiraling heroin addiction. It wasn't until he had a near-death experience involving his car and the Manhan River, that his life took a dramatic turn.   Today, Carlos is the founder of the Ayahuasca Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Iquitos, Peru. This research center offers healing retreats and in-depth educational courses. They continuously strive to understand the plant-based healing practices used by indigenous healers of the Peruvian Amazon. For anyone who has tuned in to the "Down To Earth" series on Netflix, (hosted by the affable Zac Efron and yours truly), you'll probably recognize Carlos from the last episode of the first season. We experienced some of his magical, plant-based healing practices first hand.   Carlos has participated in over 700 ayahuasca ceremonies. He regularly speaks about his experiences with Ayahuasca and his path to becoming a shaman.   In this episode, my eyes have truly been opened. Carlos tells us his insane back story, and how he landed his ultimate job working with one of the world's most sacred medicinal plants. We dive into his trippy, yet visceral experience during his first Ayahuasca ceremony, and the epic work the Ayahuasca Foundation is now doing for medicinal plant research and the planet.  Other Highlights From This Episode Where Carlos’ love of medicinal plants began What it was really like to have the “dream job.” The near-death experience that put Carlos on a different path The first Ayahuasca experience- from vomit to sombreros  What is Ayahuasca? The hypersensitivity state and going beyond the five senses Creating the Ayahuasca Foundation. The surprising question Zac Efron asked at the retreat This week’s Fatal Convenience™: Social Media   * DISCLAIMER & IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE*   Darin Olien does not encourage any illegal use or abuse of plant medicines and psychedelics, whether cultivated in nature or lab synthesized. Within the U.S., outside of religious ceremonies that include Ayahuasca, DMT, on its own, is an illegal Schedule I Controlled Substance.   It is advised that any individual wanting to use plant medicines should seek the advice of a licensed professional, as well as research laws and regulations surrounding plant-based medicines within their area.

The human body is amazing. It is the ultimate, complex, yet beautiful machine that has an insane capacity to heal and adapt. Therefore, it deserves our respect and there are many simple ways we can all do just that.  WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW.  On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. There are some people on this planet that are born with a rare gift, and I think my buddy Rory Cordial falls nicely into that category.  Coming from a family chock full of healers, it was only natural that Rory would also take the reins and become a physical therapist. As an artist in his own right, Rory’s rare healing and intuitive touch means he is highly sought-after. He’s spent many years travelling the world, working with the crème de la crème of this planet’s talent- I’m talking Oscar and Grammy winning entertainers and top performing, gold medal winning athletes here. Rory is also the host of The Optimal Performance Guide Podcast, a show that presents his mind-bending conversations with high level humans, while also giving the guidance people need in order to adjust their mindsets and habits to hit optimal health performance.  In this episode, Rory and I are in a healing mood. We talk about his Physical Therapist father, and how he’s mentored Rory to become the pragmatically minded, miracle healer he is today. We also explore some of the aspects of health that everyone should consider adjusting, and the simple techniques we can all apply in our lives to become a little bit happier and way more healthier.    Other Bits From Our Conversation: Growing up in a healthy environment Going beyond the five senses How Rory apts into his physical and mental state Why meditation is better than cramming last minute for an exam Why there is so much power in being subtle- especially when it comes to muscles How gratitude can help you heal What Rory thinks is the key to a healthy life Why we should all map out a clear direction when it comes to our physical health Why you need to commit, commit, commit! Babies and the importance of movement What it’s like for Rory working with athletes and high functioning people How Rory would approach healing a sprained ankle Rory’s ultimate goals for the future Fatal Convenience™: Cell Phones   Links: Rory on Instagram Rory on Twitter Rory on LinkedIn The Optimal Performance Guide Podcast Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN” Research Sources for Today’s Fatal Convenience™- Cell Phones: https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancer-causes/radiation-exposure/cellular-phones.html World Health Organization, International Agency for Research on Cancer.

It could actually lead to something quite amazing. Welcome to The Darin Olien Show.

This episode features my friend of 25+ years, Lauren Monroe. You’ve probably heard of Lauren. She’s a singer/songwriter, medium, healer and spiritual teacher, and she happens to be married to the amazing Rick Allen, the drummer for Def Leppard. I knew there was something special about Lauren when I first met her. You know that strange pull you sometimes feel towards a stranger? Like there’s something spiritual and almost cosmic about your encounter? That’s what I felt when I met Lauren, and she’s proven to be one of the most unique people I’ve ever known. Lauren has felt a connection to what she calls Divine Energy since she was a little girl growing up in Queens. Her paranormal experiences and unusual gifts set her on a path of discovery, one that she is still following today. She’s traveled the world learning from spiritual teachers and gurus, and channels everything she learns into her work and her music. Lauren co-founded, along with her husband, the Raven Drum Foundation and the Project Resiliency’s Warrior Resiliency Program which serves, educates and empowers veterans and people in crisis. Lauren and I had a deep conversation about her journey to discover more about her inner gifts and everything that’s come with that. We touch on how she discovered her talent for healing with massage therapy and bodywork and her passion for energy work. She gushes about her passion for music and how excited she is for the release of her new EP and music video on July 10th. You don’t want to miss this conversation with a truly special soul.   Other highlights from this episode: The story of Lauren’s first vision Lauren’s strong faith and what it means to her Why it’s ok to go searching for answers if you’re not getting them from home What indigenous people taught her about self-protection The power of long-distance healing The special frequency of Lauren’s music The power of Grace This week's Fatal Convenience™: Laundry Detergent   Links: Lauren’s Website Lauren on Instagram Lauren Monroe - Big Love (Official Music Video) Project Resiliency Big Love - EP    Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

It’s amazing how one adventure to an unfamiliar place can completely shift your perspective on the world. It can even change the trajectory of your entire life. Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. In this episode, I talk with the one and only Erik Cooper, adventurer extraordinaire. And when I say adventurer, I don’t mean someone who likes to go hiking or try new foods. I mean someone who is willing to immerse themselves entirely in an unfamiliar country, with a culture of nomadic people and go for broke competing in the toughest horse race in the world. Erik grew up on a horse farm in a small town in Missouri. He always knew he wanted to explore, and his love of horses was just as strong as his sense of adventure. At 24 he heard about the Mongol Derby, a grueling 10-day horse race through the rough terrain of rural Mongolia. Known as “The Toughest Horse Race in the World”, the Mongol Derby changed Erik in ways he never expected it to. I have such a fun conversation with Erik in this episode.  He told me some crazy stories of his first experience with the Mongol Derby, but we also got into the deep stuff on how it changed him.

Often, we can get hung up on an untrue self-narrative. In order to shake that off, we need to hold our noses, take the plunge, go deeper, and discover our true worth. Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. This episode welcomes a truly unique, beautiful, complex and badass woman, Rainbeau Mars. She is an author, Hollywood actor, model, yoga instructor, activist and natural health expert. Ever since her birth in a teepee under a double rainbow, Rainbeau Mars has been somewhat destined to bring a little color into our lives.  After a successful career as a model and actress of the stage and screen (you probably recognize her from the controversial 1996 hit, The People vs. Larry Flynt), she decided to pack up her Hollywood life and return to her roots. She wanted to live a life that centered more around her original upbringing- the constant practice of yoga, natural health and activism, with a little bit of acting still thrown in the mix. Today, Rainbeau is the author of the highly successful book the 21 Day Superstar Cleanse, which outlines her signature zero-calorie-restriction vegan cleanse. She also has been featured on The Doctors, GMA, E!, Extra, and Access Hollywood. Her instructional yoga videos have sold millions of copies worldwide and she now stands as the CEO of Rainbeau Mars Lifestyles, an Omni Media Company. In this episode, Rainbeau and I get really freakin’ deep. She opens up about the hard truths she’s had to face when it comes to her biological family and growing up in a post-hippy movement environment. We discuss how she gets to grips with her own unworthiness and insecurity, life in Hollywood, and how sometimes something has to die in order to be reborn.   Other highlights from my conversation with Rainbeau: Why you should write your life story What it’s really like to be the product of the ‘hippy revolution’ Healing yourself and owning your worth A suitcase of cockroaches, a trip to India and a new path towards acceptance Why you need death in order to experience a rebirth Life in Hollywood and why there’s truth in acting Finding self-belief and taking action This episode’s Fatal Convenience™: The Health Care System Links: RainbeauMars.com Rainbeau Mars’ IMDB  Rainbeau Mars on Instagram Rainbeau Mars on Twitter Rainbeau Mars on Youtube The 21 Day SuperStar Cleanse: A Rejuvenating Lifestyle Program to Help You Feel Younger, Healthier and Ready Rock the World!

Have you ever wondered what could have been if you had just grabbed an opportunity and said ‘yes’ to something? Sometimes doing the right thing is just taking a chance and seizing the opportunities in life.  Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. My guest for this week's episode is a kindred spirit, and I'm stoked to call him a friend. You may know Steve Wright as the former NFL player for the Dallas Cowboys circa 1981. But, did you know he's also an intensely passionate innovator and entrepreneur? Steve's entrepreneurial streak first appeared when he noticed that so many of his teammates were taking hard knocks and sustaining avoidable injuries. Early on, he became a proactive advocate for better safety equipment out on the field, which he still campaigns for today. Fast forward to 1994, and Steve and his business partner Mike Davis have just founded the world's first sidelines mist cooling system called Cloudburst Misting Systems. It was so effective that in 1996, they won the Atlanta Summer Olympics cooling contract, which catapulted this innovative technology into the public eye. Since then, he has kept on innovating, creating and being an awesome human being. In this mind-bending episode, we get a deeper view of the humble origins of Steve's career. You'll hear how most of his success stems from taking on a "Forrest Gump" mindset, and why Steve ended up as a survivor on reality TV. You'll also hear how living a minimalist existence has created a life that is certainly worth living.   Other snippets from our conversation: How Steve's NFL career took off Steve talks sports injuries and keeping safe on the field Why Steve went from having Margaritas at a Mexican restaurant to creating a globally acclaimed cooling system. How saying yes to a pair of shoes became a life-changing opportunity years later Why you shouldn't chase the money Steve's experience on Season 22 of 'Survivor'.

If you’re an addict, it’s a part of who you are. Addiction doesn’t go away with recovery, but it doesn’t have to continue to be a source of negativity in your life.  Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life.

This episode features my plant-based bro, the amazing Rich Roll. In addition to being a graduate of Stanford University and Cornell Law School, Rich is a world-renowned ultra-endurance athlete and host of The Rich Roll Podcast. He’s a wellness advocate, a sought after speaker, successful author of the mega-popular book Finding Ultra and devoted husband and father. He’s also a recovering alcoholic. Rich is extremely open about his journey with addiction, and we get into some uncomfortable territory in this episode. But you don’t grow when you’re comfortable, right? Rich gets into how acknowledging his obsessive and addictive mindset has helped him fuel new, healthier goals. He also shares some cool plans for his podcast and how being plant-based has changed his relationship with food.   Other highlights from my conversation with Rich: The childhood trauma Rich suffered that contributed to his alcoholism How my relationship with my father parallels Rich’s stories How Rich balances his addictive tendencies when it comes to health and fitness The link between empathy and addiction Why Rich packed up his family and moved to a former Guava farm How The Rich Roll Podcast started Why Rich often tries to think in the perspective of a 24-year-old Why Rich has never had a 5-year plan This episode’s Fatal Convenience™: Single-Use Plastics   Links: Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World's Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself RichRoll.com The Rich Roll Podcast Rich Roll on Instagram Rich Roll on Twitter Rich Roll’s YouTube Channel   Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

Some people think they only have two choices in life- Door #1 or Door #2. But what if this linear thinking has held us back our entire lives and is preventing us from growing and evolving? Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time.

This episode features my buddy Logan Gelbrich. Logan is the founder of DEUCE Gym, which has several locations in California. DEUCE features old school training equipment like boulders, weights, and things right out of a Strongman competition. They’re unlike any gyms I’ve ever been to before and became my workout home after I lost my Malibu home to the fires.  Logan is also the author of the amazing book Going Right: A Logical Justification for Pursuing Your Dreams. And let me tell you guys, this book is a mind opener. It explores the myth we’ve been fed our whole lives about only having two options in life, pursue your dream or take the safe route. It will shatter your thoughts on this kind of thinking, believe me. In this episode, Logan and I get into some deep stuff and some amazing stories of his baseball days playing for the University of San Diego and professionally for the San Diego Padres. We discuss how we both have always taken the path less traveled as far as pursuing our dreams in life, and what that means for our personal growth. This conversation was a good one, guys, and I can’t wait for you to hear it. Other bits from our conversation: Why there is never just two choices Why doing the hard thing leads to personal growth Why pursuing your dreams is never reckless What it means to find the flow Logan’s movie-worthy baseball story My story of almost being in a plane crash Why Logan designed DEUCE the way he did Power vs. Force This episode’s Fatal Convenience™: Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) Links: Going Right: A Logical Justification for Pursuing Your Dreams DUECE Gym Logan on Twitter Logan on Instagram   Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

Behind every beloved character from film or television is an actor or actress that pours their heart, soul and personal experience into its creation. Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. My guest for this week’s episode is probably one of the most genuine, unique people I know, John C. McGinley. John has been in dozens and dozens of hit films like Platoon, Point Break, Wall Street and The Rock. He’s even shown his Broadway chops in plays like Glengarry Glen Ross. But perhaps his best-known role was as the loveable, but scary, Dr. Perry Cox on the TV show Scrubs. What you may not know is that inspiration for Dr. Cox’s hidden heart of gold, as well as distinctive traits of other characters John has played, comes from his relationship with his son Max. Max was born with Down Syndrome and completely changed John’s life in ways he never imagined. Being a father to Max and daughters Billie and Kate is and will always be his most cherished role. During this epic conversation, John and I discuss his current roles as an ambassador for the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and the Special Olympics. We get into what being involved with these awesome organizations has taught him about life and the human spirit. We also get to hear some hilarious behind the scenes stories of John’s long, impressive career. But don’t worry, this isn’t some stuffy Hollywood guy bragging about his accomplishments. This is a down to earth, ridiculously thoughtful guy gushing about the gratitude he has for the amazing opportunities he’s had in life. Highlights from my amazing conversation with Johnny: John’s hilarious Edger Allen Poe soundcheck How having a special needs son has completely changed his outlook on life How John carries Max with him to every set Why John picks Down Syndrome organizations that don’t just focus on “the Kumbaya” What it means to live in gratitude The Spread the Word to End the Word Initiative and how it came about The adorable story of how Max introduced John to his wife Why John juggles when he’s memorizing lines John’s advice for new actors This episode’s Fatal Convenience™: Plastic Links: Global Down Syndrome Foundation Special Olympics Spread the Word to End the Word Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome John on Twitter   Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

We’ve entered into a challenging new world, that’s clear to see. Not only for each of us individually but also as a collective. “Sustainability” is the word on everyone’s lips at the moment. But what if we already had the power to turn things around, right now, today? Welcome to the Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. If you don’t think that superheroes exist, you haven’t met Chris Patton. In this episode, I chat with one of my greatest friends, Chris Patton. Don’t worry about trying to Google search this guy, because the likelihood of you finding anything on him is pretty slim. You’re not going to find a website, you won’t come across any interviews, or even a hint of him talking about what he does – but I promise, his story is heroic and totally epic. Chris comes from the Pacific Northwest in Washington State, and up until the mid-’90s, he lived a relatively normal life. He closed sales at a car lot for a time, before switching directions to work in banking. His life was comfortable and secure. It wasn’t until he received an urgent fax from a friend living in West Africa that his world took a skidding turn. It set him on a course towards monumental life shifts involving millions of dollars, death-defying escapes, and ground-breaking scientific discoveries.  This conversation is off the charts in terms of twists and turns. We dive into Chris’s whirlwind life, from gold and diamonds, getting shot and stabbed by militia and becoming a prisoner of war, to phantom movie stardom and rooting out the answers to some of humanity's biggest questions on sustainability. This saga has it all.  For the last decade, Chris has been one of the senior science advisors for the UN on Green Technology. He’s been advising the African Union for over 15 years, as well as sitting on various international economic advisory councils. Chris has done more than most people could do in four lifetimes. He has an enviable dedication and vigor towards saving us as a species. That’s probably why he and I mesh so well.  This is not a conversation to be missed! Other fun stuff in this episode: How have you been adapting to this new world? Who is Chris? The unknown origin story From rumors that he was dead to a blockbuster movie How a sock full of smuggled diamonds led him to the International Tesla Society Why we have the technology to solve the energy crisis, but nothing is being done The frustration of technological stalemate Why “popular” science means nothing in the real world How some of the planet’s greatest creators get taken advantage of Why scientists should turn up the heat The early days of invention This week's Fatal Convenience™- Hand Sanitizer Links: Dark Horse Comics: Website Dark Horse Entertainment: Website Plan B Entertainment: Information Section Eight Productions: Information ‘Blood Diamond’ Movie: Information United Nations: Website African Union: Website   Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

You don’t have to be disadvantaged to have empathy for people who are. Recognizing the good fortune you’ve been born into and using it to help you see the world through other’s eyes is something to be proud of.  Welcome to the Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to, even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you. In this episode, I chat with one of my best friends, Brandon Jenner. You probably know Brandon by his last name. That’s ok, he’s used to that. In fact, the bulk of our conversation is about how Brandon has taken his inherited fame and used it to fuel his empathy for people who haven’t had the same good fortune he has.  Not only has Brandon’s signature empathy fueled his personality and the good he does in the world, but it also is the driving force behind his music. In his debut album, Plan on Feelings, Brandon got extremely vulnerable while writing the song “Anybody?”. We discuss the role vulnerability has played in his life and how you can incorporate it into yours. Brandon is just an all-around great guy. It was fun to get to have a conversation with him about things we don’t usually touch on in our normal weekly hangs. I also got to pick his brain on his down to earth approach to wellness and healthy eating, which I think you’ll enjoy as well. Other good stuff in this episode: How Brandon felt pressured to be an athlete growing up but turned to music instead Why Brandon thinks every single member of his massive family made him who he is today How traveling the world at a young age shaped Brandon’s perspective How Brandon incorporates empathy into everything he does, especially his music Why exercise is so important to him How vulnerability plays a role in his life Why it’s important to find someone in your life that you can open up to The men’s group Brandon and I belong to and the role it plays in both our lives The story of writing the song “Anybody?” from Brandon’s first album This episode’s Fatal Convenience™ - Drinking Tap Water Links: Brandon on Instagram Listen to Brandon’s first Album on Spotify Brandonjennermusic.com   Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at 121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN”   The Darin Olien Show is produced by the team at Must Amplify.

In the Darin Olien Show, each episode is packed with honest, inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same - to save the planet one conversation at a time. We’ll talk about how to fuel your body, boost your immune system and even sustain yourself on a plant-based lifestyle. We present tangible tips, tricks and methods to get you feeling your best and living your best life. My mission is to stop you from falling into society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we do that we’re indoctrinated into thinking we have to, even though those very things are negatively affecting us, and in some cases, slowly destroying and killing us. I’ve traveled the world and witnessed vibrant cultures enduring difficult circumstances - with the environment around them being ravaged by deforestation, lack of food and limited access to clean water. In this podcast, we’ll explore how we can leave a healthier planet for generations to come, while diving deep into some topics that others avoid. Let’s create a more sustainable planet for every creature living in it. I hope you’ll listen to The Darin Olien Show with an open mind, an open heart, and a fire in your soul to do some deep diving. I’ll try my best to be your guide.

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with (1)Alzheimer virus (2)Cancer (3)HIV (4)Herpes (5)Genital warts (6)ALS (7)Virginal infection (8)HPV (9)Hepatitis (10)Asthma Email him on dredeshome@gmail.com https://dredesherbalhome.weebly.com
