thank you! this has been a real eye opener and very helpful that I felt confident enough to know what I have to do to work on myself more and what I need to do in order to attract the right person in my life. A great way to use self reflection and journal how you feel and know what relationship you need to have with yourself because it's important as when being with another person as being happy yourself is vital too. :)

a podcast where the host willingly doesn't advertise a certain brand but just tells you what TYPE of said supplement to buy. A miracle! Thanks Max

Hey Max! I love your work and have been greatly enjoying your chat with Marisa! Unfortunately the podcast keeps stopping a bit past 28 minutes. Here's the message I'm getting for the last few days: "An unknown error occurred, please try again later."

As an Lactation consultant listening to these manufacturers talk about infant nutrition, this episode has many red flags. Their baby drank liver n fat smoothies "with her breast milk" sounds revolting and the AAP recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months. But that's their choice of course but they have this platform and it can mislead parents. Pushing animal fats with the high saturated fat content is misleading also. I do like they have avocado and olive oil in their products. Max's comment about "extreme diets for babies like a vegetarian diet" totally disregards Adventists who are vegetarians and are Some of the longest living people on earth. This is ultimately processed food. I recommend Baby led Weaning. A wonderful book on feeding infants whole food. Very simple and healthy.

Is Ben Greenfield running while doing this interview? Exertion was evident in his voice throughout most of the podcast... his voice under stress is very distracting.

Serotonin is one the worst things to boost, it's neurotransmitter of lethargy and hibernation.
