Podcast Favorites

Kara Swisher's Recode Decode this week is an interesting conversation with Tina Brown. Using the publication of her new Vanity Fair Diaries as a starting point, they examine Brown's publishing career, notably her wonderful runs with Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. Then they dive into the internet age, how it's changing the publishing world, Brown's start-up of The Daily Beast, followed by venting about Facebook today. Swisher puts together the best intervierw/talk with Brown I've heard since her book was published. Brown was consistently creating some of the best magazines in the world, at a time when that mattered.

Rich Roll's podcast is one I've discovered recently, and I'm working to catch up. Here are two don't-miss episodes:

Fogel is the star of, the producer of, the man behind Icarus. If you've not watched this documentary, exclusively streaming on Netflix, get to it! Of all the interviews I've read and heard with Fogel, Roll brings out the most interesting perspective. It's a fabulous listening experience.

 

Lance Armstrong needs no introduction. I don't care whether you admire or dislike him, his wealth of experience and new perspective on many matters is worth listening to. Me, I think he's one of the finest athletes ever.

Shroom Tech and New Mood - Onnit Labs Protecting Your Body

These are two supplements from Onnit Labs. Shroom Tech features two different mushrooms (Rieshi and Chaga), with a few others blended together, some zinc and selenium, helping ShroomTech maintain optimal immune system levels. In other words, these capsules will help keep your body cranked up against all the people sniffing, sneezing and wiping their noses, then picking up a dumbell or kettlebell in your gym.

 I used one capsule daily for a month, and found myself staving off colds and flu bugs that were taking down staff and gym members around me every day. Of course there’s no way to absolutely credit ShroomTech with my consistently not-being-sick, but I consider it a tool for living as healthily as possible. 

New Mood, a 5-HTP and L-Tryptophan supplement, is something I absolutely feel the effects of. Here’s how it works for me: there’s no jacked-up feeling, no buzz or energy kick. Rather, in my stressful job environment and busy life schedule, taking one New Mood capsule with my first meal of the day helped me remain positive and even-keeled, even in the face of inconsistent sleep. It doesn’t replace sleep or naps, New Mood doesn’t make tiredness go away, nothing like that. But there’s an intangible positive atmosphere to my attitude and brain I’m confident comes from these powerful brain supplements.

Who doesn’t want to avoid sickness, and at the same time live with a seeming attitude adjustment, at all times?  I surely do.
