Welcome to the Cognitive Rampage Podcast. The exploratory podcast pushing you to question yourself and everything else. Making you think with cerebral guests, and offering alternative and mental health help.
I'm your host, Adam Lowery. I have published two books, appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, MSNBC, NASDAQ Live, NBC, multiple podcasts and radio shows. I am a retired drug dealer, turned retired Mental Health Therapist turned Author, Podcaster, CEO, Comedy Club Owner and Comedian. I hold both, B.A. and B.S. Degrees, a Minor in Sociology, a Masters in Mental Health and a Doctorate from Sidewalk U. As a Therapist, I founded the integrative therapeutic approach Transrational Structural Behavior Theory (TSBT), and have also been credited with the discovery of the Athletes Depression Diagnosis.
In my flow time you will find me doing stand-up comedy or producing comedy shows. I love the great outdoors. I surf, dive, kayak, spearfish, offshore and inshore fish. I’ve caught and hunted my own food since I was a child and have survived on a deserted island. If comedy or nature isn’t calling, you’ll find me training boxing and kickboxing. I enjoy cooking, podcasting, playing pool, frisbee or reading a physical book. I have a serious addiction to the ocean, listening to podcasts, new experiences and randomness. I talk to strangers, and too much. I love most people, including you.
In my book series The Cognitive Rampage, I fuse the cognitive, behavioral, social and biological sciences into a self application to help you create and sustain change in your life, and to reveal the authentic you. Available on Amazon, Kindle and Barnes and Noble.
I hope you’re taking care of you and living your Cognitive Rampage! What does that mean? It is about cultivating happiness through a passionate pursuit of life optimization, an enthusiastically persistent search for competence in mind, body and belief while building an optimistically rational life philosophy and living and growing your purposeful structure.
I hope you'll stay around by subscribing to the podcast on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube, following me on Facebook, Twitter and IG, and buying my book on Amazon so we can keep exploring this amazing human experience together.

New addiction outlook ,

Zach Rhoads

The word "real" comes to mind.

I've followed Adam Lowery very closely, among many forums... He is the same person, no matter the setting.

His guests reflect this! If you're interested in addiction, health, science, philosophy, or just understanding human nature, you MUST tune in to this show!! By failing to do so, you will be falling behind cutting-edge material.

I love the variety of topics and thought leaders that Adam connects with on the show and the relatability to our humanity.

Entertaining Education

I appreciate everything this man is doing for society in general. From that information you dropped those knowledge bombs on the Joe Rogan podcast in regards to how the system deals with addiction and the politics involved. Just gold information, im geting goosebumps writing this. Love the podcasts and the book is incredible. Can't wait to see what he has lined up for us in the near future!
