    419: The Story of a Mouth Breather with James Nestor

    419: The Story of a Mouth Breather with James Nestor

    What do snoring, crooked teeth, and mouth breathing have in common? All these conditions can indicate or even predict a whole series of chronic health problems down the road. James Nestor began his study into breathwork in the extreme world of freediving and breath holding, but he eventually came full circle to focus on the power and necessity of healthy, balanced breathing - something often lacking in our lives.

    418: The Power of Ritual with Casper Ter Kuile

    418: The Power of Ritual with Casper Ter Kuile

    After just five swipes of your newsfeed, and you’ll immediately see ideology and groupthink dominate just about every conversation. As the world becomes more and more digital, we’re simultaneously becoming more tribal.

    The negative fallout is obvious, but what about the positives? What about a sense of purpose, belonging, ritual, and community? Can we find deep meaning and connection on our own terms? On this week’s podcast, a Harvard researcher joins me to share his work on ritual and religion.

    417: Time Off with John Fitch

    “You can have anything you want in life, but you can’t have everything.” Most of our biggest dreams are totally unsustainable, but they come with a price. Want six-pack abs? Are you willing to skip carbs and spend 2 hours a day in the gym each day?

    Want a 7-figure bank balance? Are you up for 70-hour work weeks for the next 10 years? Want to start your own business and work for yourself? Are you prepared to become your own worst boss?

    416: The Children of the Future Jay Belsky, PhD

    We’re cavemen pretending to be academic, political, cerebral, and romantic when really we’re mostly motivated by survival and procreation. This is simultaneously depressing and relieving since it explains away some of our most ridiculous actions. On this week’s podcast, Professor Belsky will share with us his life’s research around adaptation, the importance of fatherhood, and a potential “better way” than the American model for child-rearing.

    415: Detox Your Thoughts with Andrea Bonior

    415: Detox Your Thoughts with Andrea Bonior

    The COVID-19 pandemic has dominated the news for months as a quiet crisis, one of mental health, has spread even faster and further. Depression, anxiety, and loneliness are at all-time highs. And what happens when you take away work, school, and social events on top of that? What happens when your usual support and self-care tools are unavailable to you?

    414: How to Control Your Attention with Nir Eyal

    414: How to Control Your Attention with Nir Eyal

    Distraction was endemic before the pandemic and will continue long after. Our neural wiring makes us highly-prone to shiny object syndrome where every phone notification and salacious news story glimmers like a fleck of gold. Oh, what’s that? 10 minutes lost. And what about that? 30 more minutes gone.  On this week’s podcast, we’ll explore distraction, and its opposite, traction.

Instant Fan!

I find myself surprised but also excited by Lucas’ boldness. He asks the hard questions and goes deep with his guests right off the bat. I listen to a lot of podcasts centered around health and wellness, and no other podcast has me truly looking at myself and making real adjustments as this one does. It is very interesting learning from Lucas because his BS meter is very finely tuned and he enters spaces where that is so rare and valuable, such as nutrition, yoga, relationships, breathwork, meditation, and running a businesses. Binge-worthy, though I doubt Lucas would advocate that, so try to listen to only a few episodes a day. :)

From future student to present fan.

I just recently became familiar with Lucas. I ran across his Breathing Certification course, and signed up. I have a special connection with meditation, breathing, specifically anything having to do with the wind. And I have for over 30 yrs. so, I was quite excited and admittedly a little skeptical of the certification. But after listening to a few episodes of the podcast, I am now a solid fan. Episode 412, definitely hit home. I am a production manager of live events. And I have been having to look at what next due to the pandemic. Luckily for me I’ve already been working on my own thing since 2015 and see this as a push to take it further. This podcast has come to me at the right time. And I now look even more forward to starting the certification classes. Thank you Lucas
