Podcast Favorites

Intrigue: The Ratline is so compelling I listened to the introductory interview with Philippe Sands on Dan Snow's History Hit podcast, then the first six episodes from BBC 4, all in one day! The Ratline was the route used by Nazi war criminals who escaped from Western Europe at the close of World War II, and were routed through Rome, ending up in Argentina, mostly. Sands has a vested interest in the topic, as most of his family was executed during the Nazi roundups of the Jewish population in the Ukraine. The show centers around Otto Wächter. He was the Nazi Governor of Galicia, now western Ukraine, a region where almost the entire Jewish population was murdered in the Holocaust. After the war, he spent three years in the Austrian mountains, before crossing into Italy and obtaining forged identity papers. Sands has cultivated a relationship with Otto's son, now aged and living in a hundreds-of-years-old castle, with a fascinating library of books, letters, papers and other materials related to his father's life.


Whether you are interested in World War II, history in general, or compelling stories and podcasts, this will keep you listening and learning. The great Stephen Fry lends his voice to each episode, and in the sixth, John Le Carre appears as an integral background source. The Ratline is scheduled for ten episodes; six have been released to date.

Want to sort out the bullshit and bro-knowledge about nutrition and learn how science really plays into your results? Frustrated with your workouts and lack of progress, wondering if you should "be" Keto or Paleo or what? Listen two or three times to Layne Norton and Don D'Agostino on the Joe Rogan podcast (and eagerly awaited appearance), and get truthed!

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.
