Description

Eric sits down with leading fitness geek, guru, thinker and human guinea-pig Ben Greenfield to learn how one of the world's most highly regarded trainers and fitness experts cuts through the nightmare that is our medical literature. 

The academic and medical literature in health and medicine is a disaster. Studies are performed and reported in non-standard and idiosyncratic ways which are then further distorted by a press often looking more for headlines and scoops than facts and rigor. In this episode we get to ask one of the most sought after fitness optimizers how ordinary people can better understand their own minds, brains and bodies in light of the cacophony of 'expert' opinion. Ben, here in his role of master pedagogue, gives detailed implementable answers as well as simple to follow priorities that sum up his years of study and training for the mere mortals who wish to better everything in their lives by tackling health at the fundamental level.

A strange one... Eric needs an update on the state of the art of speech-to-text. The iDorkweb seems to have completely misunderstood what decriminalization by legalization was about. Everyone is playing doctor, labrat and drug promoter on bro level knowledge. Ill start a new ESD clothing line directly targeting those suffering from too many internal electrons! Hats with metal discharge rods and the appropriate esd wallpaper for your ceiling!

I thought grounding yourself sounds like bulk bullshit, might have to have a look.
