    44. Jared Hanley - Professional Adventure Racer, NatureQuant Founder & CEO

    Big data shows Nature has the power to heal. Professional Adventure Racer and Founder and CEO of NatureQuant Jared Hanley joins today’s episode to talk extreme endurance sport and share how his company is reshaping the way the world measures the impact nature has on our lives.
     
    A veteran of professional Expedition races Jared shares the grueling physical and mental toll the 10+ day races inflicts on athletes. A competition that puts athletes under extreme and sometimes life threatening duress, Jared explains the need to make skills like rock climbing, white water rafting and cave diving so automatic that athletes can do them under severe sleep deprivation.
     
    An avid lover of nature, Jared explains how he applies his background as a data scientist to quantify the positive impact of nature on our physiology and the health risks associated with lack of access. He explains the correlation between exposure to nature and life expectancy. What the science says is a recommended minimum in terms of personal exposure. Explains how listeners at home can measure their Nature Score and gives us an early teaser of his company's next project and how it will help enable users to hopefully improve the quality of their lives.

    43. Dr. Chris Minson - Head of the University of Oregon Department of Physiology - Expert in Human Adaptations to Environmental Extremes & Athletic Performance in high heat

    Can controlled exposure to heat unlock improved athletic performance? Dr. Christopher Minson, Head of University of Oregon Department of Physiology and an expert in thermoregulation, sits down to answer the question. A former competitive athlete himself, Dr. Minson shares how the combination of his interest in athletics paired with a fascination for research led to him becoming one of the preeminent authorities on physiological adaptations to extreme environments.
     
    In today’s show we discuss how he works with professional and olympic athletes to prepare them for adverse environmental conditions. The physiological adaptations that take place when exposed to prolonged sessions of heat. How they can be used to increase athletic performance in hot conditions and the evidence that suggests these adaptations can likewise enhance performance at cooler temperatures. The benefits of heat exposure and the dangers of living thermostatically for the average person. He describes the cutting edge environmental chamber the team at the University of Oregon has built to recreate harsh environmental training conditions for athletes and participants. He also shares how the average person can safely expose themselves to bouts of heat and why for the sake of longevity it may be in their benefit to do so.
