Show 1264: How to Make Exercise More Enjoyable
In your great-grandparents’ day, hardly anybody exercised. There were sports enthusiasts who raced or danced or rode horses, played ball or rowed for fun. But then, as throughout evolution, very few people went to the gym. Still, they stayed physically active, either because their work required it or because they had found something, such as […]
Show 1224: What Is the Best Way to Manage Your Heartburn? (Archive)
Bellyaches and heartburn are among the most common problems driving people to the pharmacy to seek relief.

Very useful info, but...
Very useful- discussions with experts in their fields on subject concerning everyday health. I’ve learned much that I apply, often on a daily basis. But, FRUSTRATING that it takes Joel forever to get out a question, going on needlessly with details that are obvious or were even just discussed. It’s like he’s trying to fill in time, which is also the impression from so many re-introductions with long titles. That said, I grin and bear it, or grimace; it’s usually worth it.
My favorite podcast
I always learn something, even if it is that the person they interviewed is not up to date or is paid by big whatever.
