This podcast changed the trajectory of my life

I first came across Max in 2019 as a guest on the Aubrey Marcus podcast, I knew almost immediately there was something special and important about what he had to say, and with a family history of alzheimers disease I immediately purchased his book and started listening to the genius life. The information provided in every episode is interesting, well researched and practical and Max is a genuine and well spoken host, who asks provocative questions to his guests.

Listening to this podcast was one of the primary reasons I decided to completely change my life’s direction and become a nutritionist - after years of study I am now helping clients nourish themselves to the max, and still listen to The Genius Life every week to continue learning and growing as a practitioner, knowing that I am getting reputable sources and real world applications to pass on. Thank you Max!

Too many ads

The content in this podcast is great but I can’t listen to it because there are ads every 10 minutes.

The best way to get back on track

I’ve been a dedicated listener for about 1 1/2 years now (sorry it’s taken so long to leave a review) - the genius life is by far my favourite podcast (not just wellness) as the topics discussed are so varied, It’s guaranteed you’ll learn something beneficial.

Ive found that anytime I get off track with making healthy habits and choices, listening to The Genius Life puts me in the correct mindset, and provides the framework to retrain my brain to start making healthy choices again in such an effortless and enjoyable way.

Max is such a great host, easy to listen to and has an outstanding breadth of knowledge and curious mind. He always asks the guests the exact questions that I have as soon as they come up - meaning I leave each episode fully educated, and with the right tools to keep living life in the best way possible.

Thank you so much max!
