    Episode 95: Dr. Mark Hyman

    Our most powerful tool to reverse the global epidemic of chronic disease, heal the environment, reform politics, address social injustice, and revive economies is food. What we eat has tremendous implications not just for our waistlines, but also for the planet, society, and the global economy. What we do to our bodies, we do to the planet; and what we do to the planet, we do to our bodies.

    Beyond these important considerations, it turns out that our choice in foods may well have an...

    Why are most Alzheimer’s patients women?

    It may come as a surprise to you, but women outnumber men when it comes to Alzheimer’s disease sufferers by a ratio of 2 to 1. Why Alzheimer’s affects women so adversely is unclear, but we do know there is a lot of science that’s beginning to make sense of this statistic. Moreover, now that we are gaining ground on understanding why the female brain is more susceptible to this devastating disease, it allows us to begin getting our arms around the...

    Episode 93: Max Lugavere

    Clearly, one of the most important goals of the conversations we try to spark here is empowerment. This empowerment is especially valuable as it relates to brain health.

    I’m certain that many of you not only watched my previous interview with Max Lugavere, but also read his important book, Genius Foods.

    Max now has a new book, The Genius Life, that looks not only at food, but at a variety of other important lifestyle factors that very much add to our level of empowerment with the goal...

    Episode 92: Dr. Daniel Amen

    Why do we not generally discuss the fact that there is an epidemic of mental illness in our society? Or that our lifestyle choices may have an impact on our risk for these conditions (like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and others)?

Audio quality

I hope David and his team read this. Can you please sort out the audio level for your guest where they are dialing in and David’s audio level. The volume varies greatly and when you’re standing on a bus commuting to work, with 2 bags, an umbrella and hanging on, one doesn’t have enough hands to constantly adjust the volume between speakers. I get so frustrated I end up deleting the episode. This is a fundamental issue to podcasts. It’s a shame as there so much great content here.
