    Julie Lythcott-Haims On How To Be An Adult

    I love my parents. I grew up with a world-class education. And yet, nobody actually ever taught me how to be an adult.As a result, I made a ton of avoidable mistakes. I suffered far more than necessary. And I fumbled in the dark for years until eventually, I figured a few things out. Unfortunately, my experience is all too common.Today's guest—a woman who spent years mentoring and advising some of the brightest young people in the entire world—would agree, so she decided to do something about it.Julie Lythcott-Haims is the former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she earned her B.A. (as my classmate) before obtaining a law degree from Harvard and a master's in fine arts and writing from California College of the Arts.Today Julie is an author and authority on what we now call—in Millenial parlance—adulting. Her TED Talk 'How to raise successful kids without over-parenting' has over 5 million views, and her books include the New York Times bestseller, How To Raise An Adult and Real American—a memoir centered on coming to terms with her racial identity.Julie's latest work and the focus of today's conversation is Your Turn: How To Be An Adult. For those just emerging into the grown-up world, it's a must-read life handbook. For parents, it's a must-gift for your young ones entering their adult phase of life. All in all, it's a guide I very much wish existed during my formative years.This conversation is packed with practical insights for both parents and young people alike. We cover the downfalls of being a helicopter parent, the importance of learning conversation skills, and why paying attention to what you like and don't like is more important than finding a purpose.But more than anything, this conversation is about why diversity and inclusivity are vital in parenting, educating, and adulting.To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.This is appointment listening for young people emerging into the world or parents striving to best guide their kids into maturity.

    Guru Singh On Intuition Over Impulse

    Last week we dipped our toes into sacred waters both spiritual and metaphysical. This week we are diving off the deep end.In other words, welcome to another incarnation of Guru Multiverse, the latest in my ongoing series of communions with Guru Singh, my treasured friend and favorite sparring partner when it comes to matters heart and soul.Aside from being a modern-day Gandalf, Guru Singh is a master of the Kundalini arts, a celebrated spiritual teacher, a third-generation Sikh yogi, an author, accomplished musician, father, grandfather, and an overall gift to humanity who has been teaching and studying Kundalini yoga for the past 40-plus years who now holds virtual court at kundaliniuniversity.com.The Guru joins me in the studio to offer a dissertation on divining and discerning the delicate and detailed differences that differentiate: instinct, impulse, intuition, and intelligence—the four “I's” if you will.This is a conversation about perspective, accountability, the willingness to solicit and receive feedback, and why growth depends upon the ability to truly understand and appreciate the nuances that distinguish these “I” words.To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Make sure to stick around until the end. As has become his custom, Guru Singh closes things out with a song.This might be one of my favorite Vulcan mind-melds to date.

    Today we're going take some of life's biggest questions, toss them into a Vitamix, press hyperblend, and whip up a Metaphysical Milkshake.My sous chefs for this cosmic concoction are Rainn Wilson & Reza Aslan.Do I really need to introduce these two?Star of screens big and small, Rainn is best known for his role as Dwight Schrute on The Office. An OG in the online high-vibe content space, Rainn is also the founder of SoulPancake, a digital platform for people from all walks of life to discuss and question what it means to be human—a place to wrestle with the spiritual, philosophical, and creative journey that is life.Reza is a scholar of religions, a professor of creative writing, a television host, an Emmy-nominated producer, and the author of many bestselling books on religion, faith & spirituality.These two have teamed up on a fantastic new podcast worthy of your attention called (you guessed it) Metaphysical Milkshake.In a mild departure from my typical interview format, the idea for this episode was to tackle some of those big life questions, themes that recur on both of our shows, and have some fun doing it. So I wrote down various queries on a stack of index cards, wadded them up, tossed them in a bowl, and let Rainn and Reza take turns fishing them out for today's round-table.Among the threads pulled today are:What does it mean to be human?How do you be a good person?Why are humans prone to spirituality?How do you reconcile science & rationality with faith & spirituality?Are we addicted to everything?What is the role of consciousness?To read more click here.

    Joanne Molinaro Is The Korean Vegan: Lessons On Life, Identity, & Food

    Play Episode Listen Later Oct 4, 2021 153:36

    A central theme of my podcast is the power of a plant-based diet to enhance the quality of life for both the individual and the whole.Over time, the show has grown to embrace a wider variety of themes—art, entertainment, cuisine, entrepreneurship, spirituality, sports, social justice, creativity, equality, and more—each guest sharing his/her respective expertise and experience.Some conversations traverse more than one field. Only a select few impart powerful, impactful lessons across several.Joanne Molinaro is one such human—a cultural phenomenon who goes by the moniker, The Korean Vegan.Born in Chicago to immigrant parents from what is today North Korea, Joanne is a (soon to be) New York Times bestselling cookbook author, food blogger, marathon runner, social activist and corporate law firm partner (although she just resigned last week) with millions of fans across a variety of social media platforms—including over 2.5 million on TikTok—obsessed with her wisdom-laced and thought-provoking food content, garnering her features on CNN, CBS, The Food Network and many other mainstream media outlets.Joanne's audience isn't just massive, it's insanely engaged—a loyalty rooted in her wholesale re-imagination of the cuisine landscape. Her content is so fresh, so beyond nice photographs or the A-B-C food preparation tutorials to which we've grown accustomed, that it's fair to say Joanne has pioneered an entirely new content genre altogether.Exquisitely captured in irresistible sixty-second short films with a penchant for virality, across her social channels Joanne masterfully entwines food, culture, education and self-improvement with incredibly honest, vulnerable, heartfelt stories about life, relationships, grief, family, divorce, surviving abuse, and the immigrant experience. Her deeply personal yarns tug on the universal—an authentic relatability that leaves most teary-eyed upon each's film's conclusion.One of my most memorable encounters of 2021, our conversation spans her remarkable career balancing corporate law firm partner duties with the full-court demands of her growing voice of public influence. We cover her path to veganism (a journey that ironically began with her husband reading Finding Ultra), her experience as a Korean woman living in the diaspora, the many ways in which food and social justice advocacy intersect, and the importance of humanizing the immigrant story.To read more click here.

    Mel Robbins On Why Confidence Is A Habit

    People ask me all day long for the secret ingredient to success and a comfortable way through personal transformation.My enduring answer: there is none.I believe in the individual potential for positive transformation. I'm also a self-help skeptic who greets most #lifehacks with profound hesitancy. There is a line between snake oil and efficacy—and that line is crossed more often than not. So if you struggle with self-confidence, making life changes, finding your purpose, or if the general vernacular that encircles self-improvement—words like motivation, inspiration, and passion—leave you more deflated than empowered, I feel you.Today's guest, the queen of grounded, science-backed personal development is here today to help us sort things out.Meet the singular, multi-talented hyphenate Mel Robbins.A former lawyer turned CNN legal analyst, turned mega-bestselling author and talk show host, Mel is a powerhouse and one of the most widely booked public speakers in the world. Her work includes the global phenomenon The 5 Second Rule, four #1 bestselling audiobooks, the #1 podcast on Audible, and her videos have over a billion cumulative views, including her TEDx Talk How to stop screwing yourself over—which has racked up over 27 million views alone.The official occasion for this conversation is Mel's brand new book, The High Five Habit—a must-read primer on how to make believing in yourself a habit so that you operate more empowered and with greater confidence.However, this conversation is about so much more, packed with practical, life-altering, science and experience-based wisdom you (and myself included) need to hear.Nobody loves making a real difference in people's lives more than Mel. Her energy is infectious. Her authenticity and earnestness is palpable. Everyone at the studio fell in love with her—and I know you will too.To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.My hope is that Mel's message will do for you what it has for me—remind you to celebrate the small wins, cultivate that bias for action, and get out of your own damn way of creating the life of your dreams.Final Note: If you would like to sign up for ‘The High 5 Challenge'—Mel's 5-day free challenge that begins Oct. 4, click here.

    Roll On: The Plight Of Women In Afghanistan

    It's time to grapple with the human rights issues ensuing in Afghanistan.To guide us in this important conversation are podcast alums Drs. Ayesha & Dean Sherzai.For those new to the show, ‘Roll On' is typically our opportunity to shift focus from my traditional fare of evergreen conversations to instead hone in on matters of contemporaneous, time-sensitive interest.Today we do just that, but with a twist, spending the entire episode grappling with the very grave plight faced by the 18 million women in Afghanistan in the wake of the United States departure. Breaking down the grip of Taliban rule, this is an exploration and round table discussion led by Team Sherzai.Experts on brain health, Alzheimer's, and neurodegenerative diseases, Drs. Sherzai have twice graced this show for deep dives on maintaining and optimizing cognitive function. But what most don't know is that Dean & Ayesha have considerable experience with Afghanistan.In 2003 Dean was appointed the Deputy Minister of Health by President Karzai, creating the most successful post-conflict healthcare system with women's empowerment at its core. Ayesha founded the Social Welfare Society for Afghan Refugees in medical school, volunteered with Doctors Without Borders' in Afghanistan during her medical training, and co-founded the Afghan Health Initiative in order to empower the Afghan diaspora with their own health.My intention for this conversation is less political—we aren't here to necessarily debate the political advisability of the U.S. withdrawal as much as the incomprehensibly botched manner in which we withdrew—and the downstream human rights implications of Afghan women in particular.Other specific topics discussed include:The history of women's rights in Afghanistan;using healthcare as a catalyst for women's empowerment;a breakdown of the imperative of the Taliban and how it functions;the role that fear plays in female oppression;what we can be done now to aid Afghan women; andhow to support celebrated female artists, scientists, politicians & leaders in Afghanistan.To read more and listen click here.

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 13, 2021 148:56


    In the words of today's guest, global warming is not a science problem. It's a human problem.When it comes to taking meaningful steps to redress the climate crisis, so many of us are left crippled. It's a problem so huge, so existential, most people feel powerless to make a difference. But in truth, there are many substantive onramps to participate in the solution, and today's guest is a wonderfully gracious, charitable, experienced, and optimistic cipher to explore these various paths.Meet Paul Hawken, one of the environmental movement's leading voices returning for his second drop on the podcast, the first being at our big live event with IN-Q.In addition to his profound work as a planetary change agent, Paul is an entrepreneur who founded both Erewhon Markets and Smith & Hawken. He's also the author of eight books including the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller Drawdown, and his astonishing, beautiful new work entitled Regeneration: Ending The Climate Crisis in One Generation,which aims to guide, inspire and galvanize the burgeoning climate movement.This is an optimistic conversation about our greatest existential threat. A conversation that extends beyond statistics, blame, and fear to illuminate what each and every one of us can all do now to support what Paul calls regeneration: a call to action that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation to live more symbiotically with the planet that supports us usWe cover everything from the current state of affairs of the climate crisis, to the actionable steps we can all take to foster regeneration and most importantly, the state of mind we all need to maintain to heal our earth and secure the future of humankind.Paul is a friend, a mentor, and lighthouse. He's a man who has indelibly shaped my perspective and actions when it comes to ecological responsibility, and it's an honor to host him today.To read more click here.

    David Choe On Finding Beauty in Brokenness

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 6, 2021 177:46


    Can art and happiness coexist? Is great art only forged through pain? And is suffering integral to creativity?These are just a few of the many questions explored in today's colorful excavation of David Choe's fascinating soul.I suspect many of you are already well familiar with this human and his art. Perhaps you watched his VICE special, Thumbs Up. You've seen him alongside the late Anthony Bourdain in Parts Unknown or the recent documentary Roadrunner. He's also appeared on Howard Stern, Joe Rogan, and David Chang's podcast.But for those unfamiliar, David is an extraordinarily unique and talented street artist, fine artist, performance artist, and muralist. He's also a musician, journalist, writer, producer, fellow podcast host, a self-proclaimed liar, thief, altruistic narcissist, vagabond, and recovering sex and gambling addict. In other words, he's a highly flawed human—just like the rest of us.Most of the conversations that swirl around David tend to revolve around his wealth (he took stock instead of cash for murals he painted on the walls of Facebook that would later enrich him to the tune of $200M) and the countless wild yarns he spins about his many well-documented adventures, escapades, and public scandals.Today we travel beyond the David of yore to meet a very different man. An artist and human who has grappled with his demons and emerged more complete. Grounded. And grateful.What interests me most about David has nothing to do with his wealth, fame or copious talent. Instead it's his honesty—a rare and raw vulnerability that is both sweet and endearing. A reflection of his devotion to self-growth, the David of today is refreshingly open about his journey and failures. The result is a deeply empathetic, sensitive, caring, and thoughtful man in search of personal truth and connection—all of which is writ large and beautifully captured in his latest utterly unique creation, The Choe Show on FX.Today's conversation centers on mental health, childhood trauma, and the many perils of addiction. It's about identity, sobriety, creativity, and more broadly, the journey to self-acceptance and self-love.David is one of the few brave individuals who can shine a flashlight on the darkest places of his soul—a rare authenticity that somehow gives everyone else the green light to do the same.To read more click here. You can also watch listen to our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Note: If this is your first rendezvous with David, this is not one for the kiddo's ears. Explicits are dropped. You have been forewarned.I adore this conversation. It's nothing short of magical, and I hope you find it helpful especially if you're one of the many who are struggling or suffering right now.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week's sponsors:Athletic Greens: 75 whole food sourced ingredients designed to optimize 5 key areas of health, Athletic Greens is the delicious daily habit that sets you up for a healthy future.

    Maggie Baird Is The World's Coolest Mom

    Parenting typical teenagers is no easy feat. Today's guest parented two as they skyrocketed to bewildering fame—and kept them astonishingly grounded in the process.Today we explore the uncommon reality that is Maggie Baird's life.A veteran actor, improv performer, and writer with a long list of screen credits to her name, Maggie is also a long-time vegan, animal rights and environmental activist, and the founder of Support And Feed, a non-profit that partners with restaurants across America (and soon the world) to provide plant-based meals to those experiencing food insecurity.She's also the coolest mom ever to two of the biggest musicians in the world—7x Grammy Award winning 19-year old Billie Eilish and Billie's equally talented brother and counterpart, 8x Grammy winning 23-year old brother Finneas O'Connell—all portrayed alongside Maggie's husband Patrick O'Connell in the recent Apple TV+ documentary The World's A Little Blurry.Although Billie serves as the film's primary protagonist, the documentary paints a technicolor family journey portrait. The story behind the story of this uniquely gifted foursome is both surprising and deeply heartwarming—a narrative exploration of parents striving to consciously guide their talented kids through their trepidatious and vertigo-inducing ascent to superstardom.It goes without saying that this is a conversation about parenting, how to raise conscious kids, and the many benefits of homeschooling and unschooling.It's about what happens when your children become unbelievably famous at a young age, seemingly overnight.And it's about organizing your life and your family's priorities around what is most important.It's also about the challenges of pursuing an artistic life. The importance of finding your cause. And it's a dive into Maggie's particular cause, which is to solve food insecurity and make the music industry, concerts, and touring, more ecologically sustainable.To read more click here.

    The relentless pursuit of pleasure always leads to pain.As the world evolves from one of scarcity to overabundance, we increasingly orient our lives around the pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain—an instinct that has produced a myriad of unprecedented types of addiction, and consequently, the pain we so desperately seek to avoid.To better understand this conundrum, I'm joined today by one of the world's leading authorities on the neuroscience of addiction, Anna Lembke, MD.If that name sounds familiar, it's likely due to her on screen presence in the Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma—a must-watch for anyone with a smartphone.Anna is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She is widely published, has testified before Congress, and has authored two important books, Drug Dealer MD and her newest work, Dopamine Nation—a powerful primer on compulsive overconsumption in a world where feeling good has become confused with the highest good.This is an important and impactful conversation that explores:The nature, psychology, and neuroscience of addiction;the explosion in addiction in lockstep with technological advances;the opioid crisis & the fascinating history behind how we think about and treat pain;recovery protocols from 12-step & the latest science on psychedelic treatments; andhow to manage & avoid addiction.To read more click here.

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 16, 2021 119:23

    What if I told you that there was a Russian millionaire who wants to help you live to be 150-years-old?This isn't science fiction—it's ‘immortality science'. It's the science of lifespan extension. The science of what today's guest calls growing young.Meet Sergey Young, the exceedingly bright and optimistic chemical engineer turned investment banker turned venture capitalist committed to not only funding cutting-edge lifespan extension breakthroughs but also ensuring that such advancements are affordable and accessible to all.Named one of the Top 100 Longevity Leaders in the world, Sergey is an XPRIZE Foundation Board Member, the founder of the $100M Longevity Vision Fund, and a development sponsor of the Age Reversal XPRIZE, which is a global competition designed to find a cure for aging. Yes, you read that right—a cure.He's also the author of the new book hitting shelves everywhere August 24, 2021 (and now available for pre-order) entitled, The Science And Technology Of Growing Young, which is a fascinating demystification of the longevity landscape, a primer on the science and technology developments aimed at healthspan enhancement, and a practical guidebook outlining the many things we all can and should be doing now to live vibrantly to 100 and beyond.Today we run the gamut on longevity, including near and long-term science & technological advancements like the advent of bio-tracking wearables, body digitization, and the role of artificial intelligence in revolutionizing medical diagnostics and early disease detection.We also cast a future gaze into the insanely wild far horizon of age-reversal science, digital avatars, telexistence, 3-D organ printing, and AI-brain integration.Pivoting to the immediately practical, we also converse about the many things we can and should all be doing now to extend not just our lifespan, but our healthspan—things like eating a plant-based diet, prioritizing exercise, sleep, relationships, and spending time in nature.But the most interesting aspects of this exchange are the moral and philosophical dilemmas that surface in the conversation around human lifespan extension—and the urgency with which we need to be thinking very deeply about the many profound implications of these advancements.Brilliant, charming, and quite funny, it's an honor to share Sergey's wisdom with you today.Break out the pen and notepad.

    Eric Adams: NYC's First Vegan Mayor On Why Healthy Food Is A Human Right

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 9, 2021 75:36


    We live in the most prosperous nation on Earth—and yet we've never been more unhealthy. Chronic illness is killing us and bankrupting our economy. 70% of Americans are obese or overweight, and by 2030, 50% of Americans will be diabetic or pre-diabetic.It's insanity—and a reality that today's guest lived, transmuted, and has committed his life to changing.Meet New York City's first vegan mayor, Eric Adams.At age 54, Eric woke up unable to read his alarm clock. Concerned about his vision and numbness in his extremities, he reluctantly went to the doctor, who delivered a grim diagnosis of advanced Type II diabetes. Progressive eyesight loss was inevitable. His nerve damage was leading him on a path to amputation. Going on a battery of medications for the rest of his life was a given.Refusing to believe his fate was sealed, Eric decided instead to take matters into his own hands. Rather than googling ‘living with diabetes‘, instead he googled ‘reversing diabetes'. What he found was a plethora of support, science, and experts — many of which have appeared on this show — that inspired him to ditch his lifelong allegiance to the standard American diet in favor of a whole food plant-based diet.Within weeks of this nutritional shift and without any medication whatsoever, Eric's symptoms subsided and his diabetes indeed reversed. His vision returned. His nerves repaired themselves. In the months that followed, he lowered his cholesterol by 30 points. He dropped 35 pounds. And a new lease on life was signed.Now five years hence, Eric is the fittest he's ever been. His remarkable transformation inspired him to create radical initiatives as Brooklyn Borough President to improve the nutrition, health, and lives of New Yorkers and beyond. A commitment he's adamant about expanding as New York's next mayor.Those who have followed this mayoral race closely know it's essentially been focused on one issue: law and order. Lost in the media cycle about today's guest, however, is his incredible commitment to revolutionizing health policy, the direct result of his very personal experience with chronic lifestyle disease. So today we dive into Eric's remarkable journey from ill to well, and the purpose-driven mission it has birthed within him to revolutionize health not just in NYC, but across America.I suspect you will end this exchange wanting to know more, in which case you should check out Eric's book, Healthy At Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing and Reversing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses.I appreciate Eric for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to me.

    Courtney Dauwalter: Mindset Secrets From The World's Best Ultrarunner

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 2, 2021 107:56

    We tend to think of high-performance athletes as superhuman—a rare species with extraordinary strength and a preternatural ability to suffer.But if you ask today's guest what distinguishes the elite athlete and everyone else, she'll say nothing.For her, the secret to high-level performance isn't about cutting edge training plans, coaches, or carefully honed nutrition.For her, it's instead found in seeking out and celebrating the pain cave, that deep place of physical discomfort most go to great lengths to avoid.Meet Courtney Dauwalter, the world's best female ultrarunner—and when it comes to races 200 miles and longer—arguably the best period.A humble mater of grit and boundary-busting physical prowess, Courtney is universally loved and admired for her winning smile, mental fortitude and intuitive training style (she doesn't even have a coach).In addition to being named one of the 50 Fittest Athletes in the World by Sports Illustrated and a two-time Ultrarunner of the Year, among her countless accomplishments, Courtney:won the 2017 Moab 240 (including beating all the men) by an astonishing 10 hour margin;won the 2020 Big Dog Backyard Ultra by clocking 283 miles (again beating all the men);won the women's division of 2018 The Western States 100;broke the Tahoe 200 female course record in 2018 by 18+ hours; andwas the fastest female at the 2019 UTMB, considered the world's most prestigious ultraNot bad for an athlete who didn't even begin her professional running career until she was 32 years old.The thing about Courtney is that she lives in the moment. She's a doer. She doesn't overthink things. She trains on feel, eats what she wants, and does it all with joy and a laudable degree of humility and perspective. But behind it all is a very intentional human—an athlete of unparalleled mental fortitude with the drive required to test the very limits of human capability.Today we get into all of it.Courtney shares the mindset techniques and tactics that have propelled her superhuman accomplishments.She shares her perspective on career longevity. Her evolution as an athlete. How she approaches unlocking unprecedented performance. And the purpose that lives beneath it all.But if you extract anything from this conversation, may it be the importance of having fun. Why taking things lightly is strength and not a weakness.When you reframe pain as a destination rather than an obstacle, truly anything is possible.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.An athlete I've admired for many years, I aspire to Courtney's unique blend of grit and joy. Yes, she is a badass.

    Bruce Friedrich On The Meatless Meat Moonshot

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 26, 2021 126:12

    Imagine a day when alternative protein is no longer alternative. Welcome to the moonshot for meatless meat.When it comes to meat, the news is both good and bad. On the one hand, alternative protein innovation is at an all-time high, with ever more options stocked at grocery stores across the country. However, despite the cultural ascension and mainstreaming of all things vegan & plant-based, the unfortunate reality is that globally, meat consumption is actually the highest it's ever been. And according to the UN, global meat production is projected to double by 2050.So what gives?To address this conundrum and bring us up to speed on the cultivated and plant-based meat state of affairs, I'm once again joined by my friend & resident expert on all things meatless meat, Bruce Friedrich—returning for his third appearance on the show (catch RRP 286 & 402if you missed them).Graduating magna cum laude from Georgetown Law with additional graduate degrees from Johns Hopkins and the London School of Economics, Bruce is the founder & president of The Good Food Institute, an international non-profit focused on facilitating the reimagination of meat production. He is also a TED Fellow, a Y Combinator alumnus, and a popular food innovation speaker at places like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, and MIT. Bruce has been profiled in The New York Times and many other prominent outlets and has penned op-eds for The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Wired, and many other publications.Today we pick up where we left off almost three years ago to assess the current state of the union on all things alternative protein.We discuss advances in both plant-based and cultivated meat. We review how the latest technological breakthroughs in fermentation, 3D printing and funghi (or mycoprotein) harvesting are changing the game. And we cover the political and regulatory landscape that frames the alternative protein movement—and the policy changes we need to realize a better food system for all.In addition we discuss the many problems solved by a global pivot to alternative proteins—including zoonotic disease, greenhouse gas emissions, resource reduction, and animal suffering.Overall, this is an optimistic forecast of food system innovation—how technology, urgency, and popular demand are rapidly converging to create healthy, sustainable, and compassionate solutions to help solve our current food, health, and environmental crises.To read more click here.

    Daniel Humm: How The World's Greatest Chef Found Purpose (In Plants)

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 19, 2021 117:01

    What happens when one of—if not the—greatest restaurants in the world suddenly goes 100% plant-based?For perspective, out of the 132 three-star Michelin star restaurants around the world, not a single one is vegan. Suffice it to say, most would say such a move is tantamount to financial suicide.But Chef Daniel Humm—the world-renown chef and owner of Eleven Madison Park—sees it as the greatest purpose-driven, creative challenge of his lifetime.A former pro cyclist and 2:51 marathoner, this Swiss native began cooking at 14, preparing exquisite meals in some of the finest Swiss hotels and restaurants before earning his first Michelin star at the age of 24. In 2003, he moved to the U.S. to become the executive chef at Campton Place in San Francisco, where he received four stars from the San Francisco Chronicle. Three years later, he moved to New York to become the executive chef at Eleven Madison Park, revitalizing the restaurant so completely that in 2017 it was named #1 on the coveted list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants.Like most restaurants, when the pandemic hit Eleven Madison Park closed its doors and grappled with bankruptcy. But it was during this time that Daniel started thinking more deeply about purpose. What he stands for. How he could leverage his talent and resources to meaningfully participate in solutions to food insecurity and the inherently unsustainable nature of food systems more broadly.Bold leaps followed. He converted the EMP kitchen into a commissary to provide free meals to food-insecure New Yorkers. He kitted out a food truck to distribute those meals. He partnered with Rethink Food, a non-profit committed to creating sustainable and equitable food systems, to work on solving food inequality at scale. But his coup de grace involved re-opening the most revered restaurant in the world with a completely plant-based menu—and ensuring that every EMP meal enjoyed pays for five meals freely distributed to those in need.It's a move that sent shockwaves throughout the food world. But Daniel's bet is more than paying off, denoted by a waitlist that currently exceeds 15,000 people.On the very day Eleven Madison Park announced its new menu, I committed to making this podcast happen. My friend, past podcast guest, and former Esquire magazine Food & Drinks editor Jeff Gordinier connected the dots. In turn, Daniel agreed to do the show. But there was a condition: first I must dine at EMP. Deal. I immediately booked a flight to NYC. I joined Jeff for said dinner—an exquisite experience like no other—and the day following convened with Daniel for this exchange.This conversation is about why cuisine at the highest level—food as art—plays a vital role in moving culture forward. It's about what makes a great chef. What pursuing a passion truly entails. And the magic of embracing constant reinvention.It's also about the role that art, minimalism and essentialism have played in the evolution of Daniel's craft and life philosophy.But more than anything, this is a deeply personal tale of evolution. It's about the search for purpose beyond accolades—and what it means to devote your talents in service of a better world.To read more click here.

And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Special Thanks to Daniel's team for arranging this dining & podcasting experience and to Joseph Hazan at Newsstand Studio in Rockefeller Center for allowing us to record in his facility. Also, gratitude to photographers Sebastian Nevols (kitchen portrait) and Craig McDean (black & white portraits) for permitting use of their images.Now one of the most important and influential figures in the plant-based movement, it was a privilege to experience Daniel's talents and company.

    Rabbi Mordecai Finley: A Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt On Moral Philosophy, Virtue & The Inner Pharaoh

    Play Episode Listen Later Jul 12, 2021 137:23

    Our time is defined by a crisis of consciousness and broken spiritual connection. Driven by a materialist, zero-sum approach to everything, we seek answers in ego, money, power and consumption. It's an addiction that's wreaking havoc on the planet—and ultimately leaves us empty.Short of a spiritual reconciliation or outright revolution of the heart, I fear for the future well-being of humanity.It is this terrain that today we tread with spiritual psychologist, historian, philosopher, and the world's only rabbi with a black belt in jiu-jitsu, Rabbi Mordecai Finley, Ph.D.The co-founder of Ohr HaTorah Synagogue in Los Angeles, Rabbi Finley holds a doctorate in Religion and Social Ethics from the University of Southern California. He's taught Holocaust Studies, Talmud, Rabbinic Literature, Jewish Law and Ethics, and other courses at USC, USC School of Law, and Loyola Law School. And he is a founder and the former president of the Academy for Jewish Religion.Rabbi Finley's gift lies in wisdom counseling, and today we are gifted just that.This is a rather extraordinary deep dive into the teachings of moral philosophy, spiritual psychology, skepticism, and stoicism. We deal with anger & fear, the relationships that divide ourselves and others, and what Rabbi Finley calls The Inner Pharaoh, the internal oppressor who keeps us trapped with the crushing persistence of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. In addition, Rabbi Finley helps answer questions like:what does it mean to pursue a life of virtue, wisdom, depth, purpose, and meaning beyond the material?how do we parse our inner voice from the ego?how do we connect our inner consciousness to the divine?how do we end cycles of anger, disappointment, and dissatisfaction? and most importantly, what is the role of spirituality in 2021?But the most powerful lesson imparted is the importance of thinking well. Exploring the depths of your motivation. And understanding that only you can heal yourself.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Rabbi Finley is a beautiful soul.

    How do you stay committed to your goals when sh*t gets hard?There's an entire industry built on answering this question—and a litany of #lifehacks meant to assuage intolerance for hard work and discipline.But if you ask today's guest, he'll tell you the answer is found in consistently doing what you feel called to do—and doing it for something greater than yourself. It's about making friendships along the way. And seeing the process of pursuing your dreams as a privilege—not just a self-serving opportunity.Meet Hellah Sidibe.Born in Mali, Hellah emigrated from to the States from West Africa when he was a teen, becoming a professional soccer player and now, a U.S. citizen and the first Black person to ever run 3,000 miles across America. It's a truly extraordinary feat eclipsed only by his incredibly inspirational positive vibe and another noteworthy accomplishment: a 4+ year run streak.Hellah has run every single day, without missing one single day, for over 1500+ days in a row.I first came across Hellah's story when my friend Robbie Balenger joined Hellah for a segment of his transcontinental run through the Navajo Nation. Captivated by Robbie's Instagram Stories documenting the experience, I was immediately taken by Hellah's energy. I followed his journey through the conclusion of his run in New York City, and immediately got to work trying to book him here as soon as I could.And so, here we are.We talk running of course, but this conversation is about so much more. It's about reimagining your own personal potential. It's about chasing dreams, taking risks, putting yourself out there, and of course, what it takes to accomplish seemingly outlandish goals.We also discuss Hellah's decision to go plant-based. The impact this lifestyle has had on his running and, beyond that, his broader awareness.In addition, we talk about his work with Soles4Souls, a non-profit that provides repurposed shoes to empower the developing world. We discuss his relationship with social media, his growing YouTube presence, and the impact Casey Neistat has had on how he shares his personal perspective online.But mostly, this is about mindset. It's about living with intention—and the beauty of sharing the journey to self-actualization unfiltered, in real-time.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube.

    Mary Cain Is Fixing Girls Sports

    A cornerstone of this podcast is the power of sport to catalyze personal and societal change, cultivate confidence, and ultimately transform lives.But what happens when sport breaks you?If you've listened to my conversations with Lindsay Crouse and Lauren Fleshman, you know this story is all too familiar within athletic institutions—particularly Nike. Today's guest is busting this paradigm.Meet Mary Cain.Established as the fastest girl in a generation by the time she reached high school, Mary was only 16 when she qualified for the Olympic Trials. At 17, she became the youngest American track and field athlete to make a world championship, competing in Moscow in the 1500 meters.Olympic glory seemed a foregone conclusion. Until that is, she joined Nike's elite Oregon Project team run by infamous coach Alberto Salazar.And that's when everything changed.Under severe pressure from Salazar and others to lose weight, her mental and physical health began to crumble. Ultimately, her body collapsed—and her running career behind it. Then she just disappeared.Until November of 2019 that is, when Mary broke her silence on what happened and why, bravely exposing the abusive system that derailed her in a New York Times Video OpEd entitled, “I Was the Fastest Girl in America, Until I joined Nike”.Here's the thing about Mary: she's emerged from this whole experience stronger—both as an athlete and as an advocate resolute on creating positive change for the next generation of female athletes.Now 25, she continues to run while serving as the New York Community Manager for the running apparel brand Tracksmith.In addition, this podcast announces her new role as CEO of Atalanta, a new NYC-based elite running team & community non-profit Mary founded with the dual mission of promoting running community, inclusivity & diversity, while also rewriting the rule book on professional women's athletics.Today we get into all of it.To read more click here.

    Roll On: Case Studies In Mental Fortitude

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 24, 2021 164:11


    Success in all forms demands mental fortitude—a capacity honed through consistently placing yourself beyond comfortable confines. When practiced with daily rigor, an increasingly sturdy mindset becomes a superpower—and the foundation for the purpose-driven life you aspire to inhabit.Welcome to another edition of ‘Roll On', wherein myself and master of pen, keyboard and dictaphone Adam Skolnick explore the concept of mental fortitude in contexts athletic and political through the lives of two individuals, James Lawrence (aka the ‘Iron Cowboy') and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.Beyond RRP hype-man duties, Adam Skolnick is an activist and journalist best known as David Goggins' Can't Hurt Me, co-author. He writes about adventure sports, environmental issues, and civil rights for The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men's Health. He is the author of One Breath and is currently awash in his umpteenth draft of an untitled novel—slowly losing his mind in the process.This episode unfurls in a fashion unique.The balance of today's discussion focuses on James Lawrence—the undisputed king of mental fortitude wrought in physical form—and his mind-bending completion of 101 iron-distance triathlons in 100 days.In addition, we cover a few notable stories, including The Woman Who Fell 2 Miles To Earth, The Great Lakes Jumper and The Great Pacific Race. We also discuss the recent Supreme Court decision backing payments to NCAA student-athletes, wherein I go on a tear against the college-industrial complex.It is here that we depart from standard Roll On protocol and instead segue into my conversation with a man notable for a very different kind of mental fortitude, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. The most accomplished runner currently holding elected office (he's a 2:16 marathoner!), it's an exploration of the demands, discipline and disposition required to lead a fractured city through the treacherous terrain of social upheaval in the wake of George Floyd's murder.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Final Thought: this episode marks the one-year anniversary of ‘Roll On' (and on-air bromance with Adam Skolnick).

    Van Neistat Is The Spirited Man

    A mysterious artist on the cusp of breakthrough success walks away from it all. Beyond the public's gaze, he spends the next decade pursuing purity, beauty and truths both personal and universal.Then, like a Jedi returning from parts unknown, the artist resurfaces as ‘The Spirited Man'. And this ‘Spirited Man' goes by the name Van.Van Neistat to be precise.The elder half of The Neistat Brothers, it's a name that will ring familiar to many, a name typically associated with a superstar YouTuber, OG vlogger, and friend of the pod, Casey Neistat.In the Neistat Venn Diagram, Van and Casey overlap on many traits. Both are artists with an utterly distinct aesthetic. Both are exceptional filmmakers who honed their skills in the days before YouTube even existed. Both have a preternatural aptitude for storytelling, perfectionist dispositions, an appreciation for the analog, and extreme respect for detail. The list goes on.And yet, Van and Casey are also very different artists with disparate sensibilities.Back in 2010 after the Neistat Brothers HBO show wasn't picked up for a second season, Casey went on to become, well Casey Neistat. Van on the other hand, embarked on a very different journey. An artistic journey of self-discovery—outside the public sphere—until recently.Now re-emerged by dint of his recently launched YouTube Channel, ‘The Spirited Man', Van muses philosophical and explores questions large and small with a curious, introspective flare that is totally unique, utterly compelling, and just-so-perfectly Van.I was (and continue to be) thoroughly entranced by this series—and so curious about Van—that I reached out to Casey to connect us.Today Van shares his story, and it is wild.My plan was to unfurl ‘The Story of Van Neistat' in a relatively linear fashion.That's not at all what happened. And this exchange is better for it.Fluid and conversational, this is an excavation of the artist life. It's as much about hardship and survival as it is about creativity and productivity.We discuss curiosity, sobriety, discipline, the value of being meticulous, and his commitment to preserving an analog life.We talk about why he didn't continue making films with Casey and Van's many collaborations with artist Tom Sachs.Finally, Van spins a few epic yarns featuring Werner Herzog, the Safdie Brothers, and the lore of 368 Broadway—a building in lower Manhattan that birthed many an amazing creative career in the early 2000s.To read more click here.

    How can you possibly excel as an athlete on a plant-based diet? Where do you get your protein? Don't you need meat to be fit?If you're a long-time whole food, plant-based enthusiast, chances are you've been asked these questions more times than you can count. For the rest of you, let's put these questions to the test.My comrades for this inquiry are friends Matt Frazier & Robert Cheeke, here to testify on how to absolutely kick ass and take names as a plant-based athlete.The occasion for this conversation is the publication of Matt & Robert's aptly titled new book, The Plant-Based Athlete—the ultimate primer on maxing peak performance the plant-based way, a drum you I've been beating for years.Long-time listeners will remember Matt from from RRP 54 in the early days of the podcast.

We talk about optimizing athleticism from strength training to endurance. We discuss proper fueling and recovery techniques. We get into responsible supplementation, balancing macros, enhancing micronutrient intake, and the importance diversifying your microbiome. Plus, we dive into the latest science and research behind why plants reign supreme when it comes to peak gains.Of course, we also bust some common myths, including the big one: where do you get your protein?Whether you're seeking to break a strength plateau, hit a PR, compete in your first ultra event, or simply lose a few, shape up and feel better—this is the intensive, in-depth, masterclass on plant-based performance you've been waiting for.And it might just change your life.To read more click here.

    The godfather of integrative medicine and a true pioneer of health, today's guest is a legend in the realm of mind-body healing.Meet Dr. Andrew Weil.Named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME Magazine (among a zillion other accolades), Dr. Weil is a New York Times bestselling author of 15 books, the founder and director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, and a man who's spent the last 50+ years studying and evangelizing holistic wellness, under-appreciated healing modalities, medicinal plants, and the reform of medical education.As an entrepreneur, he is the founder of matcha tea brand Matcha Kari and a partner in True Food Kitchen, a chain of healthy food restaurants located all across the U.S.Dr. Weil has occupied a space in my consciousness for as long as I can remember. However, it wasn't until I read Michael Pollan's book How To Change Your Mind that I began to more fully appreciate the vast extent to which Dr. Weill has served as integrative medicine's greatest pioneer.the legacy of integrative medicine can be traced to Dr. Weil's breadth of this man's contribution to introducing and mainstreaming so many ideas and practices he has been advocating since the 70's.A long-time advocate of simple practices like breath work and healthy eating decades prior to it being vogue, Dr. Weil's storied legacy also includes the evidence-based study of clinical applications for psychedelics, and marijuana. The nutritional properties of mushrooms. And the advisability of a variety of other alternative healing modalities that, back in the day, were considered anathema and ridiculed by the medical establishment.Simply put, integrative medicine would exist as it does today without the path courageously blazed by Dr. Weil.Today we explore this man's extraordinary life. Counter-culture days at Harvard. And his convictions as a healer.We talk psychedelics, funghi, food and breath—and the best practices you can adopt to sidestep chronic lifestyle disease and thrive.We also explore what's wrong with medical education.

    Olympian Katie Hoff On Embracing The Suck & Alchemizing Pain Into Gratitude

    We all create imagined blueprints for how we want our lives to unfold—but what happens when things don’t go according to plan?Today’s guest knows a thing or two about managing pressure, prioritizing intention over expectation, and transforming disappointment into gratitude.Meet Olympic swimmer Katie Hoff.Dubbed, for better or worse, ‘the female Michael Phelps’ Katie is an 8x world champion that made her first Olympic Team at the ripe age of 15, the youngest member of the 2004 USA Swimming Team. She won 5 first place Olympic berths at the 2008 Olympic Trials, took home 3 medals in Beijing, and over the course of her career toppled more than a few American & international records, accruing 8 world championship titles along the way.But Katie’s story isn’t what you think it is. It’s not some totally unrelatable Olympic fairy tale, filled with empty platitudes and cliché mottos.It’s a story about not living up to the expectations the world set for you.What’s most interesting about Katie is that she’s an athlete that should have had a far more decorated career.So what happened?Today we explore her storied career, covering the complicated mental and emotional implications of elite performance, as well as the external forces beyond an athlete’s control.We dissect the vertigo-inducing success Katie experienced at such a young age. The insane pressure she faced that accompanied high highs, the bitter disappointment she experienced by failing to live up to unreal and unfair expectations, and the process of picking up the pieces and moving forward with life in the wake of dreams unrealized. And of course, the valuable and applicable life lessons extrapolated along the way, which she chronicles in her book, Blueprint: An Olympian’s Story of Striving, Adapting, and Embracing The Suck.Katie is an absolute delight and our exchange is littered with gems—big ideas on managing stress, expectations, and knowing when and how to push your limits.To read more click here.

    Roll On: Why Balance Is Overrated

    Play Episode Listen Later May 27, 2021 142:39


    Striving to achieve a ‘balanced life’ on a daily basis sets you up for failure. Approach it instead from a long-term perspective. Aim for self-awareness. Go all-in on what lights you up. Along the way, be gentle with yourself.We are here to follow our curiosity, not mercilessly judge ourselves. Awareness is key. Shame is counterproductive.Welcome to another edition of ‘Roll On’, wherein myself and Lord of the podcast manor Adam Skolnick wane and wax on philosophical, spiritual, and practical ideas both big and small. Beyond bantering sundry matters of varying interest, we play show and tell, share a few wins of the week, and round it out by answering listener questions deposited on our voicemail at (424) 235-4626.Beyond RRP hype-man duties, Adam Skolnick is an activist and journalist best known as David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me, co-author. He writes about adventure sports, environmental issues, and civil rights for The New York Times, Outside, ESPN, BBC, and Men’s Health.

    Light Watkins: Doing The Work Is The Shortcut

    Play Episode Listen Later May 24, 2021 130:25

    How do you find purpose? What does it mean to live with intention? And why is it important to cultivate stillness?These questions are important. The answers are tricky. To solve these riddles to the human dilemma, you have to know where to look.Knowing Where To Look also happens to be the title of Light Watkins’ new book. Is it a sign or coincidence? The answer is up to you.In addition to being a good friend, a beautiful incarnation of the human form, a nomadic minimalist, and expert meditation and spiritual teacher, Light is also a prolific public speaker and the founder of The Shine (a groovy TED meets Self-Realization love child event series) and the author of three books: The Inner Gym, Bliss More, and of course, his latest work and the focus of our gathering, Knowing Where To Look.My third microphone communion with Light begins with a dive into his adventures in minimalism (every single thing he owns fits into a single carry-on bag) and what it’s like being a 50-year old ex-pat nomad living in Mexico City. We also touch on his experiences in meditation and mindfulness, and the impact of his activism on issues related to racial injustice.But mainly we focus on things like the power of kindness, the importance of patience and reflection, how to cultivate intuition, and how to have the courage to trust it.In a nutshell, this conversation is about how to put faith into action, and why the aspirational life is built upon a foundation of small gestures—tiny actions undertaken every day, every hour, every moment.If you’re new to the force of love that is Light Watkins, I suggest tuning up our earlier conversations, RRP #172 and RRP #357. Check him out in my book Voicing Change, which you can find here. Listen to his podcast At the End of The Tunnel and of course, pick up his new book, the choose-your-own-adventure style of daily inspiration that is Knowing Where To Look.To read more click here.

    Brogan Graham Is A Friend Hunter

    How do you spark authentic connection? What is the foundation of meaningful friendship? How do you catalyze a movement? And most important, how do you create true community?As society reopens, we are presented with a unique opportunity to evolve, heal, and reconnect with one another in a new way.I can think of no better person to guide us in the lost art of friendship-making than the painfully charming and über-charismatic one they call BG.Meet Brogan Graham. Fitness fanatic. Extreme extrovert. Style icon. Force of Nature. Cool dad. Loyal friend and overall stellar human being.These are just a few of many labels I would pin to BG’s chest.An exceptional host during my April visit to Minneapolis (the whole thing was his idea), Brogan is the co-founder of November Project, a free and frenetic, open-to-anyone, grassroots sweat revival—a flashmob fitness revolution that counts over 250,000 lifetime members and dominates the pre-dawn urban landscape of 52 cities and nine countries spread across North America, Europe, the United Kingdom and even parts of Asia. Leveraging community, a simple sense of accountability, and open public spaces, the November Project motivates people of all ages, shapes, sizes and levels to move their bodies—welcoming everyone from Olympic medalists and professional athletes to complete fitness rookies and recent couch potatoes.Today’s conversation traverses many landscapes with a unique flair that can only be described as unapologetically Brogan-esque.Chronologically the first conversation recorded during my time in Minneapolis, we digest lessons delivered by a city and citizenship under duress—and why it’s necessary to never stop learning.We talk ‘dadding’, training, perfectionism, friendship, and the importance of getting outside your comfort zone—not just in the context of fitness but in all aspects of life.But the overall theme of this discussion is cultivating inclusivity. Why the path forward demands resisting the impulse to call people out. Instead, let’s call people in.As I’m fond of saying, prophets walk among us. Brogan isn’t just one such everyman prophet. He understands that to find these people, you need to always be on the hunt. You need to take swings at bat. You need to always be expanding your circle. And you need to develop the habit of reaching out to others, embracing your neighbors, and contributing to your community.This reflex begins with one simple word: hello.To read more click here.

    Why do we sleep? What exactly happens when we sleep and why is it so important? What are the implications of sleep deprivation? And what can we do to improve our sleep hygiene?Answering these questions is the life’s work Dr. Matthew Walker.Longtime listeners know that I am obsessed with sleep and the critical role it plays in every facet of health. This infatuation is driven in no small part by the incredible work of today’s guest, one of the world’s leading neuroscientists and researchers in the field of sleep science.Matriculating at Nottingham University where he studied neuroscience, Matthew earned his Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the Medical Research Council in London, subsequently became a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and is currently a Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, where he serves as the founder and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science.In addition, Matthew hosts a MasterClass on the science of better sleep. His TED Talk, ‘Sleep is your superpower’ has over 20 million views. And his international smash bestselling book Why We Sleep—a must-read for anyone and everyone looking to live and feel better—provides the framework for today’s mind-blowing, slumber-focused primer.To put it rather bluntly, this conversation covers everything you need and ever wanted to know about sleep, including:why do we sleep?what happens to our bodies and minds when we sleepwhy is sleep so important?what happens when we don’t get enough?what is the deal with dreams, sleepwalking & sleep paralysis?what are the various stages of sleep (REM, deep, etc.)?what can we do to prioritize and improve our sleep? In addition, Dr. Walker answers the questions like: how do caffeine and alcohol affect sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? What is the relationship between sleep, immunity, weight gain, and mood? And most critical: how do we resolve the global sleep-loss epidemic?All told, this is an utterly fascinating masterclass on why you must rethink your relationship with sleep and the profound short and long-term impacts sleep has on every facet of our lives from learning to mood, productivity, energy, hormone regulation, longevity, and even susceptibility to cancer and other diseases.To read more click here.

    Anthony Taylor: The Outdoors Evangelist On How Nature Heals

    Play Episode Listen Later May 3, 2021 103:26

    Time in nature is powerful. It’s healing. It fosters community. Humanity’s connective tissue, it shows you who you are and what you’re capable of becoming.The outdoors has played a transformational role in my personal evolution. In almost every way I am a different, better human because I make copious use of the untouched natural spaces available to me—spaces I access freely and have long taken for granted.However, the uncomfortable truth is that outdoor parks (nature in general) are places where historically not everyone has been entirely welcome.This is a paradigm we must diligently work to dismantle.It’s also the spark that illuminates the work of Anthony Taylor—an extraordinary human who has spent his life advocating for greater participation and access to outdoor environments, and the second guest to appear in my continuing series of conversations from my week in Minneapolis.The former Commissioner for Minneapolis’ Parks & Open Spaces and current Senior Vice President of Equity, Outdoors & Nature for YMCA of the North, Anthony is—at 62 years old—the very model of anti-aging. A skier, paddler, accomplished ultra-cyclist and overall outdoors enthusiast, Anthony serves on the League of American Bicyclists Equity Advisory Board as well as the board of the National Brotherhood of Skiers. He is also the founder of the Major Taylor Bicycling Club of Minnesota and the co-founder of Cool Meets Cause, an outreach program that teaches girls from North Minneapolis to snowboard. And he served as the Adventure Director for the Loppet Foundation—a program that provides year-round outdoor activities for youth in Minneapolis.This is a conversation about the nature of outdoor recreation to empower, enliven, and inspire.It’s a walk through Anthony’s origin story. And it’s an exploration of his love of nature and his accomplishments as a cyclist and adventurer.But the focus of this exchange is placed on Anthony’s important work as an activist and youth educator.It’s a history lesson on race, class, privilege, and gender in the outdoors. And the many ways we can eradicate the invisible boundaries that exist in these spaces today.Certain transformative lessons can only be learned through adventure—lessons imperative to youth development and deeper connection to our own innate humanity.Put bluntly, outdoor sports and time spent in nature aren’t just recreation—they are human rights.I guarantee this conversation will positively impact you in ways you may not expect. My hope is that it will help foster ways you can advance greater outdoor inclusivity within your community along the way.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube.

    Jeremiah Ellison: The Artist-Activist On Forging Real Change

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 26, 2021 131:56

    This month, events in Minneapolis captured the world’s attention. The recent death of Daunte Wright and the conviction of Derek Chauvin sound a significant shift in the civil rights movement and the country at large.Today, artist, activist, and politician Jeremiah Ellison is here to help us make sense of this historic moment.As some of you may know, I spent the week of April 13th, 2021 (pre-Chauvin verdict) in a very tense Minneapolis. Motivating my visit was an intention to better understand the events and circumstances that brought the world’s focus upon this city—not from what I read online or saw streaming endlessly on cable news—but rather from a first-hand, experience-based perspective.In addition, my objective was to conduct meaningful, nuanced conversations with Minneapolis civic leaders who are grappling with the important issues that have recently dominated national news coverage. Issues that include police misconduct and public safety reform; the roots of civil unrest and the purpose of protest; and of course the role social activism has played in all of this.This conversation, the first in a series of Minneapolis-themed episodes that I will be releasing over the coming weeks, is one powerful result of that good faith inquiry.Representing Ward 5 on the Minneapolis City Council, Jeremiah sits at the vortex of the many complicated issues that concern his community, and from the start has been one of the leading and most prominent voices calling for the reimagination of public safety.On the one hand, Jeremiah is a very unlikely elected official. An artist at heart and painter by trade, he’s both a muralist and a comic book illustrator. He’s into Silver Surfer. And Batman.On the other hand, he is the son of former 6-term Congressman Keith Ellison. Currently Attorney General for the state of Minnesota, the Ellison elder was also in charge of the Chauvin prosecution. In other words, it’s fair to say that Jeremiah was born for the role he currently inhabits.My week in Minneapolis was extraordinary. There were so many experiences I will never forget. I learned much. I’m better for the trip. And my time with Jeremiah has much to do with that. I’m grateful that he took the time to share his truth and for his trust in my ability to share it.To read more click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.This is a powerful exchange. My only ask is that you welcome Jeremiah and his testimony with an open mind and an open heart.P.S. – Special thanks to talented Minneapolis local photographers/videographers Bennie Wilson and Jordan Lundell for portraits & an upcoming video we are working on.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week’s sponsorsBoll & Branch: The first honest and transparent bedding company that only uses sustainable and responsible methods of sourcing and manufacturing.

    Coaches' Corner: Working Out And Working In

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 15, 2021 141:16

    Working out offers a healthy path towards self-actualization. But it can also be used to avoid ‘working in’, perpetuating denial of that which must be confronted.What’s the difference between the two? Ask Chris Hauth + Caroline Burckle and they’ll both agree: the answer is intention.Over the last few years, it’s been a tradition to host periodic performance fitness deep dives with my long-time coach, Olympian, former professional triathlete, and fellow endurance fanatic Chris Hauth in a series erstwhile referred to as Coach’s Corner. Unfortunately, the pandemic derailed the regularity of this institution, our last observance of this sacred ritual conducted exactly one year ago on Zoom.In apologetic atonement for this grievous oversight, today we restore balance to the Universe, graced with the presence of not one but two Olympians because Chris and myself are joined by Caroline Burckle—an audience favorite many of you will fondly recall from RRP #565 this past December.For those new to the show, Chris is a sub-9 hour Ironman champion, a former Olympic Swimmer, a veteran of many an ultra-endurance challenge, my ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship teammate, and one of the world’s most respected endurance coaches.Caroline (Burks) is a former swimmer & Olympic medalist with 23 All American titles, 2 NCAA individual victories & NCAA Female Swimmer of the Year accolades to her name. She runs RISE, a mentor program that pairs Olympic athletes with young elite athletes for support and guidance.This is a super fun round table discussion on how to bring purpose and intention to our strength and endurance goals.It’s about how to create opportunities for personal growth, resilience, and the adaptability that athletic performance and this pandemic present and demand.It’s about the power of self-curated adventures in lieu of formal competition. It’s about what sport can teach us about patience, self-love, and discipline. And it’s about showing up and doing not only the physical work but also the internal work.In other words, it’s not just about working out. It’s also about working in.To read more click here.

    How do we equip kids with the tools they need to avoid substance abuse? How can we identify a teen who is at risk? And what can be done to prevent our young ones from developing dependency issues?Every parent is haunted by these questions, myself included. To get answers, I did what you do when you host a podcast—I turn to the experts. Meet Jessica Lahey.Returning for her second appearance on the show, Jess is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts with a J.D. concentrating on juvenile and education law from the University of North Carolina. She’s an English and writing teacher, a commentator for Vermont Public Radio, and writes about education, parenting, and child welfare for The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. Best known as the author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Gift of Failure—a non-negotiable must read for every parent and the focus of our first podcast (RRP #282)—Jess also co-hosts the popular #AmWriting podcast alongside fellow podcast alum KJ Dell’Antonia (RRP #396). But the primary focus of today’s discussion is her hot off the press second book, The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependence.This is a conversation about how to have those difficult conversations with your kids about alcoholism and drug addiction.It’s about how to effectively guide our young ones through the perils of substance exploration, dependency, and abuse.And most of all, it’s about arming parents with invaluable, evidence-based strategies and practical tools helpful in raising, supporting, and educating resilient, addiction-resistant children.To read more click here.

    Alex Honnold On The Responsibility of Adventure, Olympic Climbing & Reversing Climate Change

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 29, 2021 113:34


    With great adventure comes great responsibility. It’s not enough to simply appreciate our natural world—we must also protect it. Preserve it. Regenerate it. All of us. And with our full attention.No one embodies this ethos quite like Alex Honnold.Renowned adventurer and global icon of athletic mastery, Alex is widely recognized for his death-defying ropeless ascent of El Capitan—a 3,600-foot sheer vertical rock face he climbed without a harness or any protective gear whatsoever. It was a feat that stunned the world. Landed it’s cinematic document Free Solo an Oscar. And cemented this unique and compelling individual as one of the greatest athletes of all time.While our conversation back in 2018 covered this incredible accomplishment, much has transpired in Alex’s life since the whole Free Solo affair. So this conversation takes a different tack, exploring a different side of Alex. We steer clear of the more well-trod terrain and topics he has exhaustively fielded at this point and instead venture into new life experiences and other interests post-Free Solo: Alex as storyteller, podcast host, climbing historian, environmentalist, activist, husband, and more.The crux of today’s exchange is Alex’s environmental work with The Honnold Foundation.The impact he’s made thus far. He’s intentions for the future. And the steps he intends to pursue to help reverse environmental degradation: the greatest existential threat to life on Earth.We talk about the challenges of combating the climate crisis and why his current passion is solar and renewable energy.We also discuss his new turn as a podcaster, co-hosting the newly released Climbing Gold, a special miniseries of climbing-centric stories that explore the past, present, and future of the sport. In addition, Alex shares some insight into climbing’s debut at the Tokyo Olympics.But overall, the most important lesson Alex imparts is the responsibility of the adventurer. To be a climber, skier, cyclist, runner, or outdoor enthusiast, you must also be an environmental steward—and take personal action to preserve and sustain nature’s finite offerings.The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.Alex is wise, remarkable, and someone I deeply admire. My hope is that this conversation will inspire you to think more deeply about how you can positively impact the world we all share.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week’s sponsorsFour Sigmatic: Nutritious and delicious organic, Fair-Trade, single-origin Arabica mushroom coffee made with only the highest quality adaptogens like Lion’s Mane and Chaga.

A human who is very good at many things, Julie is an accomplished yogi, healer, musician, chef, and mom to our four children. She’s also the bestselling author of three vegan cookbooks. She hosts the For The Life of Me podcast. She lords over Water Tiger, her online spiritual community. And she’s the CEO and ‘Mother Arc’ of SriMu, the best plant-based cheese in the known universe.Over the years, Julie has been a recurring source of spiritual wisdom on the podcast, dropping many a pearl on everything from parenting and creativity, to navigating conflict, managing relationships, dealing with financial hardship, and many other subjects.Today’s microphone communion with Julie is many things.It’s a dissection of our relationship within a global pandemic—and the powerful lessons we’ve learned throughout the year.And it holds exciting updates from SriMu and forthcoming offerings from Julie.But most of all, this is a conversation about the importance of knowing thyself. The transformative power of owning and standing in your truth. The courage it takes to face what you’re hiding (or hiding from). Finding peace through meditation and ritual.

    Optimize Your Brain: Team Sherzai On Fighting Cognitive Decline With Nutrition & Lifestyle

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 22, 2021 148:04

    Alzheimer’s isn’t a genetic inevitability. A diagnosis need not come with a death sentence. In fact, many things can be done to prevent & ameliorate cognitive decline. So let’s talk about it.Today we dive deep into brain health. More specifically, how you can maintain and optimize your cognitive functionality and take an insurance policy out against succumbing to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.Our guides for this exploration are husband and wife neurology duo Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, returning for a second turn on the podcast (if you missed it, RRP #330 is a must-listen).Affectionately known as Team Sherzai, Ayesha & Dean are the highly credentialed co-directors of the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center, where they study all things brain health, with a particular focus on lifestyle interventions to prevent cognitive decline and neurodegeneration.Because Alzheimer’s currently afflicts over 40 million people worldwide, I’m willing to bet most of you are directly or indirectly impacted by this affliction.The bad news is that there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s. And incidence is predicted to triple by 2050.What most don’t realize, however, is that 90% of Alzheimer’s cases can be prevented.In fact, through simple diet and lifestyle changes, the Sherzai’s have experienced remarkable success in both preventing and significantly reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, dementia and cognitive decline in many of their patients, adding vibrant years to their lives.The science behind dementia, the non-interventional means to optimize brain health, and the many strategies to prevent cognitive decline are robustly explored in The Alzheimer’s Solution (the focus of our first podcast) and the Sherzai’s latest book, The 30-Day Alzheimer’s Solution.The solution might surprise you. It’s not due to a breakthrough in surgical procedures. It’s not the result of new pharmaceutical trials. It’s about food. Exercise. Restorative sleep. Community. And maintaining a life of purpose.Dr. Dean Sherzai, M.D., PhD., completed his medical and neurology residencies at Georgetown University with a subsequent fellowship in neurodegenerative diseases at the National Institutes of Health, followed by a second fellowship in Dementia and Geriatrics at the University of California, San Diego. He also holds two Masters Degrees; in advanced sciences at UCSD and a Masters in public health from Loma Linda University, received his Ph.D. in Healthcare leadership at Loma Linda/Andrews University and completed the executive leadership program at Harvard Business School.Dr. Ayesha Sherzai, M.D., finished two residencies at Loma Linda University; preventive medicine and neurology. She also holds a master’s in advanced sciences from UCSD. Subsequent to completing her residency Dr. Sherzai completed a fellowship in vascular neurology from Columbia University, and is currently enrolled to finish a PhD in women’s leadership. Ayesha also has a culinary degree, giving her a unique understanding of nutrition as a powerful tool for disease prevention.and now teaches large populations how to make tasty, easy, and healthy food for their brain health.Specific topics discussed today include:how the Sherzai’s are raising child geniuseshow COVID is devastating the Alzheimer’s communitythe latest science on brain health & cognition‘NEURO’ lifestyle interventions to promote brain healththe importance of Omega-3 fatty acids for brain healththe impact of a keto diet on brain healththe impact of a whole food plant-based diet on brain healthhow exercise enhances brain healththe importance of restorative restthe interior experience of suffering from Alzheimer’sthe total cost of Alzheimer’svascular health, amyloids, inflammation and stroke; andthe role genetics play in developing dementiaTo read more and listen click here.

    Kevin Roose: Futureproof Yourself Against The Robot Apocalyspe

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 15, 2021 104:00


    Artificial Intelligence isn’t an imagined future. It’s right here, right now. So what are the perils of society’s rapid pivot to automation? How do we avoid displacement and dehumanization? And, most pressing, how do we find meaning in a world driven by algorithms?These are important questions we need to be asking. Today’s guest is the right guy to help answer them—one of my very favorite online follows for his insights on automation, online radicalization, cybersecurity, and digital wellness.A bestselling author and award-winning technology columnist for The New York Times, Kevin Roose specializes in technology and its effects on society—an interest that culminated in the mind-melting, must-listen podcast series Rabbit Hole, a story that exposes the many ways the internet influences our beliefs and behavior, often for the worse.A significant portion of today’s conversation focuses on artificial intelligence and the many ways in which our increasingly automated world impacts humanity. It’s also the subject of Kevin’s latest book, Futureproof: 9 Rules for Humans in the Age of Automation. Part A.I. primer part self-help survival guide, it breaks down the tools we need to be happy, successful humans in a world increasingly built by and for machines.As we usher in the age of artificial intelligence, more and more occupations are becoming automated. Social media algorithms not only frack our attention spans for clicks, but they have so thoroughly manipulated such that we now divest much of our decision-making and critical thinking skills (the things that literally makes us who we are) to technology.This is an important, potentially life-altering breakdown of the many ways the internet and AI-based algorithms are degrading us, locking us into information silos, inciting emotion for profit, and threatening our inherent humanity.It’s also a guide on surviving workplace automation, overcoming phone addiction, and protecting your time and attention.In addition, Kevin provides his insider take on a variety of other notable technology curiosities from Clubhouse to NFTs, the future of podcasting, and many other subjects that I know will pique your interest.To read more and listen click here.

    Unwinding Anxiety With Dr. Jud Brewer

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 8, 2021 113:40


    The COVID-19 pandemic has been a perilous global moment that has indelibly changed all our lives. As we approach the one-year anniversary of societal shut-down, I find it opportune to reflect on how we are reacting, responding and adapting to it—for better or worse.In other words: How is your anxiety level? What habits, good or bad, have you formed in these past 12 months to cope with the insanity and uncertainty of having life upended and placed on indefinite hold? And most importantly—how are these habits serving or not serving you?I posit these questions as context for today’s conversation with my friend Dr. Jud Brewer—a psychiatrist and neuroscientist specializing in habit change who has extensively studied anxiety, and what science tells us about how we can break the cycle of fear and worry that affect all of us to some degree or another.Dr. Jud is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center, a research affiliate at MIT, and an associate professor in Behavioral and Social Sciences and Psychiatry at the Schools of Public Health & Medicine at Brown University. You might have stumbled upon his TED talk, A simple way to break a bad habit (which has racked in 16+ millions of views) or caught him on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper. He’s also been featured in TIME magazine, NPR, Forbes and many other places.Our previous conversation (RRP 471) focused on addiction and how mindfulness can help us break bad habits. Today we extend that exploration to Dr. Jud’s latest book Unwinding Anxiety—an evidence-backed primer on understanding what causes everything from mild unease to full-blown panic, the relationship between anxiety and addiction, and the many ways we can actually train our minds to feel, perform and live better.This exchange provides actionable steps to help you uproot stress. Break habit loops. And end the cycle of fear-based decision-making. Most importantly perhaps, you will learn how to identify your triggers in order to respond mindfully rather than react impulsively.Dr. Jud is among the very best and brightest at the intersection of neuroscience and habit change — and given that hundreds of millions of people suffer from anxiety, my hope and instinct is that you will find this conversation quite useful.To read more and listen click here. You can also watch our exchange on YouTube.
