    Where do most viruses come from and how can we stop them infecting humans with National Geographic science writer David Quammen

    Where do most viruses come from and how can we stop them infecting humans with National Geographic science writer David Quammen

    In Episode 101 I was super fortunate to have the opportunity to sit down with well known National Geographic writer and author, David Quammen, to talk about zoonotic diseases and mitigating the risk of future pandemics. A fascinating area of science that gives birth to yet another reason to be mindful of our lifestyles. Given that predictions suggest there are over 1.5 million animal viruses yet to be discovered understanding what increases the likelihood that a virus passes from an animal to a human is incredibly important for human health.

    Within this episode we specifically cover:

    • What zoonotic diseases are
    • The origin of zoonotic diseases
    • What a 'spillover' means
    • What reservoir hosts are
    • HIV, Ebola and other Zoonotic Diseases
    • Transmissibility and fatality rate
    • The likely origin of COVID-19
    • How human activity affects the risk of these emerging novel diseases
    • much more

    Following this episode I get the feeling many of you will be inspired to read David's book 'Spillover' which you can find along with all of his other books on his website.

    If you enjoyed the episode, or have follow up questions, be sure to let David know on twitter.

    Reflections during COVID-19 - it's time for change with Drew Harrisberg

    Reflections during COVID-19 - it's time for change with Drew Harrisberg

    In Episode 100 I sit down with Drew Harrisberg to talk about the first 100 episodes of this show and broadly speaking some of the most important learnings that I have taken away, particularly on human and planetary health. We also delve into the current circumstances that we all find ourselves in and reflect on our personal experiences and learnings thus far. While this free-flowing chat between two mates is exactly as I imagined and the perfect summary for the first 100 episodes, the unplanned nature of it means we do jump around a little bit. But for those willing to look past that I think there is some thought provoking material inside for everyone.

    Thanks for all your support. I really do appreciate all of you and look forward to bringing you another 100 episodes.

    Overcoming adversity & seeking new challenges with Rich Roll

    Overcoming adversity & seeking new challenges with Rich Roll

    In Episode 99 I sit down for a second time with ultra athlete Rich Roll to talk about the humble beginnings of his show, which is now one of the world's leading podcasts in the education and wellness space, and what it feels like to have now released over 500 episodes into the wild.

    We cover a bunch of other topics too, including overcoming adversity and seeking out new challenges, that I think you will also find interesting. Of course anyone who know's Rich will be familiar with how beautifully he's able to articulate his experiences, thoughts and learnings for us all to benefit from. A craft of his that no doubt comes with decades of introspection and self work, and years behind the microphone conversing with a diverse range of interesting guests.

    Please also note, as mentioned in the introduction this was recorded before LA went into social isolation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. So if you see videos of us online from this episode, they were shot well and truly before there was any advice to practice social distancing.

    Hope you enjoy friends. Be sure to connect with Rich on Instagram or Twitter, thank him for taking the time to have this conversation and if you haven't already, grab a copy of his book 'Finding Ultra' here.

    Slowing and reversing ageing with Dr David Sinclair, Phd

    Slowing and reversing ageing with Dr David Sinclair, Phd

    In Episode 98 I sit down with Harvard Professor Dr David Sinclair, PHD to discuss the information theory of ageing and in particular how we can slow down and perhaps even reverse the ageing process.

    In this episode we cover:

    • David's back story and how he found himself in the field of anti-ageing science
    • His information theory of ageing
    • Chronological age versus biological
    • The Horvath clock.
    • The role of genetics versus epigenetic in the ageing process
    • How long he thinks we can may be able to live to
    • How our nutrition affects the ageing process
    • Hormesis and ageing - including periods of hunger or 'intermittent fasting'.
    • Other lifestyle factors that affect the ageing process
    • NAD
    • NMN supplements and other medications/supplements that may slow down the ageing process
    • and much more

    This is a deep dive into the underlying mechanisms occurring at a cellular level that take place as we age. An exchange that I thoroughly enjoyed and hope you do too. Of course, in two hours it's hard to cover the topic of ageing in entirety so I look forward to having David back on to dive even deeper in the future. You can also grab a copy of his book Lifespan online or in most book stores - it's a fascinating read.

    Please also note, as mentioned in the introduction this was recorded days before NYC went into social isolation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. So if you see videos of us online from this episode, they were shot well and truly before there was any advice to practice social distancing.

    Hope you enjoy friends. As always be sure to let David know how this one lands for you on Instagram or Twitter.

Beyond 5 stars!

Simon & his guests are changing everything. These podcasts are literally the best there is, filled with science backing, corral thinking & so much balance - they have changed much about my world & helped me on my ‘health’ journey...
Thank you really isn’t enough 🌟

Plant Proof is a movement towards living your best life and feeling empowered to do so!!

Two years ago I started listening to this podcast and I have never looked back. At the time I was just beginning to move towards a plant based lifestyle and was encountering quite a lot of negativity from family and friends who didn’t really understand why I was making the change. But listening to this podcast reassured me of my decision as I knew that I had science on my side and hearing/seeing the real life results of Simon and his guests was empowering. I love how each podcast is an authentic and honest conversation between Simon and his guests. Plant Proof is a movement towards living a healthy life through education. Listeners can learn through guests personal experience as well as scientific evidence and reliable data which support this lifestyle. Can not recommend this podcast enough. Thank you Simon. 🙏
