    Dr. Anthony Balduzzi - Building Muscle, Fasting, And How The Male Body Ages

    Tons of men know how their body changes, adapts, or grows throughout their teenage years and their 20s. Not so many know how the natural aging process affects things in the late 30s and onward into their 50s. Speaking as a new father myself, I've got a lot to learn about how to maintain my fitness while being a parent and heading quickly towards 40, which is why I brought back Dr. Anthony Balduzzi. Anthony's an expert at providing pragmatic, actionable advice for men of all stripes and fitness levels.

    We covered building muscle, the effects of fasting, hormonal changes as men age, the effects of stress and working from home, insulin resistance and its effects on our brains, and just how easy it is to become very unhealthy very quickly.

    Dr. Anthony Balduzzi is a naturopathic doctor, national champion bodybuilder, and founder of the Fit Father Project and Fit Mother Project – online health and fitness communities aimed at empowering busy parents to get healthy, lose weight, and build muscle through practical nutrition and exercise plans.

    Don't Feel Worthy Enough For The Woman You're Dating? Listen To This.

    What happens when you don't feel worthy of the person you're with? I recently got this fantastic question from a follower on Instagram, and wanted to give it extra attention, because worthiness, success, and all those other buzzwords can get pretty vague. Listen in.

    Initiation: What Makes You A Man?

    Initiation: What Makes You A Man?

    Why do men of all kinds say (or do) the most insane things for validation? Why do so many men abuse their power? Why are there so few decent male role models? 

    My guess is a lack of initiation. But what is "initiation"? How does it work? This week, a deep dive into the what, how, why, and consequences of initiation for men.

    Are You A Domesticated Man?

    Are You A Domesticated Man?

    Coming to you from the comfort of my car, some thoughts on how current cultural trends push men away from what actually matters to them and towards the means and ends of others. It's imperative that each of us takes time to notice the things, thoughts, and practices we're attached to that maybe aren't serving us anymore.

    Lara Aknin - The Science Of Happiness

    Lara Aknin - The Science Of Happiness

    It's more important than ever to ground healing work with expertise, careful research, and study. Otherwise, it's basically just cheerleading. This is why I brought on one of Canada's best social psychologists, Lara Aknin. Lara's work centers on not just what makes people happy, but what keeps them happy: gratitude, reminding yourself and others of shared connections and community, and more.

    Obviously, the pandemic shut out a lot of ways we cultivate connection and community—at least physically. So I wanted Lara to share some scientific grounding on how covid has affected anxiety and depression rates, stress levels, and mental resiliency in general.

    Lara Beth Aknin is a Canadian social psychologist. She is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Simon Fraser University and a Distinguished University Professor.

    After earning her Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia, Aknin joined the faculty of psychology at Simon Fraser University in 2012. That year, she published Giving Leads to Happiness in Young Children with J. Kiley Hamlin and Elizabeth Dunn, which supported the idea that humans may have evolved to find giving rewarding.

    In 2014, Lara and her colleagues Michael Norton and Elizabeth Dunn co-published a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and CIHR funded review of whether spending money had a positive effect on people's happiness. The following year, her contributions to the field of social psychology earned her the President’s New Researcher Award from the Canadian Psychological Association and a fellowship at the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. By 2019, she received an SSHRC grant for her project, Can Repeated and Reflective Giving Nurture Canada's Next Generation of Philanthropists? She was also honored by the university for her research and contributions to social Psychology with the title of Distinguished SFU Professor.

    During the pandemic, she has served as Chair of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Task Force of the Lancet COVID-19 Commission. She also serves as an associate editor of the World Happiness Report.

    Peter Crone - The Nature Of High Performance

    Peter Crone - The Nature Of High Performance

    What an honor (and what great timing) to have Peter Crone—the Mind Architect himself—on the show for my final conversation of 2021. This was such an engaging and enjoyable conversation! We delve into the nature of language and the subconscious, how to tackle things like anxiety, and some of the strategies Peter has used to help athletes with the same.

    Peter Crone is a thought leader in human potential and performance as well as an Ayurveda practitioner and the Founder/Chief Inspirer of Be Alive, Inc. Peter devotes his life to sharing deep insights, distinctions, and strategies for people to live an inspired life and thrive by awakening new levels of awareness that transcend old and limiting mental constructs. He helps reveal the subconscious narratives that drive behavior, and ultimately all results, and he uses the wisdom of Ayurveda to help people find balance through diet and lifestyle. Whilst most people go through life as prisoners of their own mind, Peter helps dissolve the mental shackles that hold us back so that we can experience true freedom and discover an entirely new experience of being human. Peter has worked with numerous VIPs in the entertainment industry, more than 200 professional athletes across multiple sports, as well as leaders of global organizations. He is committed to sharing his pioneering mental constructs that inspire the realization of a new type of existence that shifts from a life of stressful surviving to one of joyful thriving.

Ringing True

This was an excellent interview with a man who has been my friend since I became a scholar of the Orphan Wisdom School, now some 10 years ago. I don’t say this to “toot my own horn”, but to say that in my time at the school Stephen reintroduced the idea of using Etymology as a tool to broaden inquiry. We, as North Americans, are all, and have all been exposed to the metastasized phenomenon of “Social Hypnosis”, AKA enculturation. In spite of this, clearly not everyone “ takes to” this sort of broad spectrum type of enculturation for any number of percolations. Meaning; it looks like some young folks the likes of yourself have that longing for that something which rings true! My Good Amigo Stephen does Ring True! Good Luck with your work!

What men living in today’s society need

This dose of reality challenges the status quo of what a man thinks they should do, verse the societal force telling them to do something else. If you’re at a point in your life where you feel stuck, or are searching for more - Connor and his expertise/research will truly help you on your journey in a very profound way if you’re willing to go deep.

Amazing and Essential!

I don’t know where I would be today without this podcast. I stumbled upon it during a dark time and listening to this from the first episode and implementing what fit in my life, helped and guided me along my own inner journey. These are the real conversations that us men need to hear. And women, but men in particular. It’s not about football or drinking but coming together as a community to be accountable as husbands, fathers, sons and better men that the world so desperately needs.
