Quantgene’s mission is to extend the healthy human lifespan by 10 years within the next 10 years, or more simply put: a decade within a decade.

They are innovating to effectively combine the full power of modern medical expertise, clinical-grade genetic and genomic intelligence and advanced data technology to prevent and detect diseases far earlier than is possible today.
Quantgene launched its first commercial offering, Serenity, earlier this year. The company has also acted quickly to stand-up next-day 99.9% accurate COVID-19 testing solutions for individuals and institutions.
He has raised $13 million to date and expects to end next year with more than 10,000 members. Jo’s audience is engaged and numbers more than 20,000.

And now we are wrapping it up and launching a product this year. But on this very long journey, what we basically found, even very early on, is that there is this unique and powerful confluence of these different factors right now, which is biotechnology sequencing and genetics, AI, Artificial Intelligence, and cloud. And cloud just means the entire soft

Hey, guys. This is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Joel Greene to the podcast. Joel, thank you so much for sharing some of your time. How are you today?
01:28 I'm actually fantastic. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate it.
01:34 No, certainly the honor is all mine, but first up, for all of our listeners that may be new to you, unfamiliar with you, and your work, and your message, I'd love it if you could just tell our listeners a little bit about yourself.
01:50 Yeah. So, the question I get a lot is, "Are you a doctor or where'd you get all this stuff?" And my answer is pretty much, I really think of myself as just a consumer. I mean, that's all that I've ever really thought of myself as. I'm just a consumer who, if you go down a certain rabbit hole, and the meta rabbit hole would be that thing we call fitness and body consciousness. If you go down that rabbit hole and listen to people, and then you continue down that rabbit hole, I'm just what you get at the end of 30, 40 years of that, which is at the midpoint, very disillusioned, then where I'm at now, which is just really after what really works in the real world over time for the vast majority of people. What got me to that was, I had done the whole fitness thing starting really in 1970 with Jack LaLanne.
I'm very, very old, so a billion years ago when there was just three channels, Jack LaLanne was like the only thing on, and I would just get up every morning and I would go. I had a onesie that had Tigger on it and Jack had a onesie so, as a kid, I thought that was kind of cool. He's got a onesie too. So, I would just go and I would just mimic whatever he did, and it kind of just became this thing that I got into and did my entire life. So, what happened was, I just was fortunate to grow up around a lot of Olympic athletes. I lived in San Jose, California, and at the time, you had Bruce Jenner, now Caitlin, and you had Mac Wilkins and you had Millard Hampton and Ben Plucknett and all these Olympic gold and silver medalists that were training there.
So, I was around that and I just got bitten by the athletic bug really early. So, in fifth grade, I was going and doing interval sprints at school, trying to get faster. In ninth grade, we had all these Olympic athletes that would train at my high school because my high school coach was an Olympic vaulting coach and he actually coached Jenner. So, I just was doing what they were doing, and they were doing clean and jerks and Olympic lifts. I was so skinny. I'm six, three, and I was 160 pounds, and I was humiliated when

This week, I'm excited to welcome Martin Silva back to the show. Martin is a transformation coach, award-winning fitness model, public speaker, podcaster. The list goes on. He's a rare breed in the fitness industry and his focus is geared towards a holistic approach with long-term health as his main goal.

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Martin Silva back to the podcast. Martin, good to see you, mate. How are you?
Good to see you too, Stu. I'm great. It's good to catch up. Last time we touched bases before lockdown, so great to see your face, man. Great to see you stack some size on there as well from some of the concepts of my program. You need to get a bigger t-shirt, Stu, for sure.
Like we were saying, it's either a washing machine problem.
Yeah, a bit of both. I reckon a bit of both, muscle gains and tumble dryer job, that is.
Fantastic. So before we get into the conversation, I've got so many great questions to throw at you as well, this time. For all of those people that are new to the podcast and may not be familiar with you or your work, I'd love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself.
Sure. Yeah. So I'm a fitness professional, and I've been coaching people as a personal trainer for over 15 years now. I ventured into the online space as well. So I've been coaching people online for about five years and I literally live, breathe, and eat health and fitness and getting people in shape, that's my wheelhouse, if you like, just to simplify that one.
And also I've competed as a bodybuilder, so I've done it naturally. I've never taken the performance enhancing supplements and whatnot, but I have competed against some of the best athletes in the world in non tested federation. So, where a lot of people do take stuff or whatever, but I've competed in those federations and I've done it naturally. I always like to clear that one up, right. Because it's a fundamental difference, but no bodybuilding, I did that for about three, four years, competed nine times and got to the professional level there.
And yeah, I mean, like I said, lifting weights and health, I've had my own journey in terms of looking after myself and going from I talked about this on the last podcast, but being driven mainly by how I looked and maybe by aesthetics to focusing more on health, and being kind of forced in a sense to really hone in on taking care of myself and making my health a priority instead of being driven by how I looked. But yeah, I mean, I could go on all day. I don't want to give you my life story and bore you, Stu. But that's the main ones there, mate.
Ryland Engelhart - Solutions For Healthy Soil
This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. He is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kiss the Ground. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, transformational documentary film, “May I Be Frank.” He is an entrepreneur and activist, and works to inspire more "gratitude" into our culture. He speaks on sacred commerce, tools for building community, and regeneration and is the host of Kiss the Ground's "We Can Do This Podcast."
Questions asked during our conversation: How do you define regenerative vs degenerative agriculture? Is it too late to be considering sustainability? How important are animals in the soil health conversation? https://180nutrition.com.au/
This week, I'm excited to welcome Ryland Engelhart. Ryland is an entrepreneur, a restaurateur and social activist who co-owns the super popular plant-based restaurants Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre. He's also co-founder of Kiss the Ground, a nonprofit increasing social awareness and educating millions of people about the extraordinary benefits of healthy soil. In this episode, we discuss the fundamentals of regenerative agriculture and discover what we can all do at a community level to cultivate global regeneration. Over to Ryland.
Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition, and I am delighted to welcome Ryland Engelhart to the podcast, Ryland, how are you?
I'm feeling great. Thank you so much. It's been great to get to know you a little bit before we jumped in here. And yeah, grateful to share love and information. That was kind of my mom's declaration of what there was to do in life, was to share love and information. And so it's always a delight to be invited to speak on a podcast, to share with new audience about what I've learned over my life that could potentially be helpful for others.
That is awesome. Well, that is what we are super excited about diving into today. But first up, for all of our listeners that might not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it if you could just tell us a little bit about yourself and your background, please.
Okay, beautiful. So professionally over the last 15 years, I've been working within a family business, a restaurant business on the West Coast of the United States called Love Serve Remember. It is a management company that oversees two different restaurant chains. One is called Gracias Madre, which is organic plant-based Mexican food. And one is called Cafe Gratitude, which I know many Australians who have come and visited California have come to Cafe Gratitude. You guys have been a big international group that has been big fans of Cafe Gratitude. And really, yeah, we've been a family of, I would say, entrepreneurs really driving health and wellness and plant-based lifestyle.
15 years ago when we started the Cafe Gratitude, there was no such thing in the general lexicon of understanding of what cold brewed coffee was. No one was eating kale. Quinoa was not pronounceable. And almond milk, there wasn't almond milk on the shelf. It was just a completely different time. And we had the amazing opportunity of understanding as a family. We had been vegetarian for most of our lives and really got into healthy, organic food, and wanted to provide that for people through our restaurants. But I would say the bigger mission of our restaurant company was about spreading the consciousness of gratitude and really, how do we create a public domain, a business, a commercial venture, where we invite people in to that space, and we not only nourish them with healthy food, but we actually also curate healthy or meaningful or purposeful or grateful conversations. And so really, the food was the kind of carrot to get people in the door, but really we were more after having people be centered in a grateful place.
What we saw was when you're grateful, you ar

Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Kristan Kershaw to the podcast. Kristan, good afternoon. So we’re kind of neighbors, I think, at the moment. You’re in Queensland now in Byron Bay. Typically, I’m calling somebody over in the states or on the other side of the world somewhere, but how are you?
I’m really good, actually. It’s a sunny, amazing day outside and I’m like, “Oh, winter’s in Queensland.”
It’s not too bad, is it? Thank you so much for sharing some of your time. I know we’re going to dig deep into a couple of topics that I think will really interest our audience today. But first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would love it. If you could just tell us a little bit about yourself, please.
Absolutely. So I’m a mom to three. And believe it or not, you won’t have caught this, I could have warned you before and I’m sorry for it, but it’s pronounced Kristan, just to throw people because you’ll hear it pronounced different ways.
