    EPISODE 434: Understanding Your Bloodwork

    When was the last time you went to your doctor for a checkup? Did you make any requests or did you just let them do their thing and trust they’d let you know if something was amiss?

    EPISODE 433: Reverse Aging with Lifelong “Play”

    Aging starts with the loss of lean muscle and mobility. Next, you notice you’re not sharp as you used to be, and then things accelerate as you become less active, less engaged in the world, and one step closer to the grave. Death is inevitable, but “healthspan” is something we can control: how healthy will you be in those years you do have on this planet? Do you want to die riding a skateboard or stuck in a nursing facility? Do you want your best years to be in the past or in the future?

    EPISODE 432: Sex Robots & Vegan Meat

    Disruptive technology has defined our generation and captured our imaginations. I haven’t owned a television or a landline phone since the 90s. Google Maps makes it possible to navigate any city as a tourist with more accuracy than a local resident, and healthy food becomes cheaper and more accessible every day.

    COVID-19 has forced and inspired hundreds of millions of people to start at-home yoga practices and exercise routines – this is amazing! But how do you make it last? How do you stay motivated?

    EPISODE 430: Is Personality Permanent?

    Have you ever taken an online personality test? Myers-Briggs, Kolbe or the “Big 5”? If you have, you no-doubt read the results with both pleasure and unease. Am I really a pushover? Am I more neurotic than most? It’s true past behavior is probably the best predictor of your future self – but it doesn’t have to be.

    EPISODE 429: Fast, Feast, Repeat

    When we think of dieting and weight loss, the first thing that comes to mind is calorie counting, portion control, and a list of “good” and “bad” foods. But what if there was a much simpler way to start? What if, before you superimpose restrictions and rules, you could achieve huge benefits simply by altering your meal timing?

    EPISODE 428: But What if Your Workplace is Toxic?

    I had an office job that was so boring, I used to photocopy my face while guzzling free office coffee and snacking on breath mints. As long as I was hovering near the copy machine, everyone assumed I was doing something productive.

    EPISODE 427: 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back

    Office chairs were always bad news for spinal health, but now most people are working hunched over a laptop on their coach – and many of their kids are doing the same! In 2019, we spent too much time on screens, but in 2020, it’s gone to a completely new level and we all need to spend some time thinking about work stations, postures, and spinal health.

    EPISODE 426: The Importance of Friendship

    I spent six weeks in March and April of this year in a fairly strict lockdown in Barcelona, and then two weeks in May completely housebound in Germany. COVID-19 has affected every single aspect of my life both for good and bad.

    EPISODE 425: The Science of Sin

    The seven deadly sins are: pride, greed, wrath, envy, lust, gluttony, and sloth. Religious or not, most of us would like to avoid these behaviors, but modern technology has made the temptation almost irresistible.
