Intercepted with Jeremy Scahill https://theintercept.com/podcasts/

I'm a veteran pop-culture junkie, an ex-collector of many things, and a long-time health and fitness advocate. At an early age I got it into my head that I should be writing, and that others would enjoy my opinions, so I kicked off my publishing life with a rock'n'roll fanzine titled Cowabunga. This led to 25 years of life in the publishing world, primarily editing and publishing music, comic book, toy, antique and videogame collecting periodicals. Today I continue to write about all manner of cultural events and products, while making my living as a personal trainer.

Constants in my life have been never-ending fascination with our culture, technology, nutrition and fitness. An odd combination, I know. From my humble start with a hand-cranked A.B. Dick mimeograph machine in my parent's basement, today with an iPhone, computers, an iPad and this website, I remain wide-eyed at the world around me.

I've spent my adult life learning about health and nutrition. Fighting with doctors is a hobby at times, beginning when my appendix burst in junior high and I gained a whole bunch of weight for a while. No thyroid drugs for me! Over the years I've been a bodybuilder, powerlifter, strongman, bicycle racing guy, overweight, underweight, but most of the time big and fit. Now I'm a Paleo Crossfitter!  John Koenig
