Bringing context to myopic topics.Better at coaching, better at doing, better at understanding. But most of all, better at learning. How can we take all of this evidence, all of this research, all of this observational data and blend it into a cocktail of information that is both indulgent and yet nutritive?

Great nutrition/strength/fitness/ health podcast
I’ve been lucky enough to work with both Dean and Jeb in the nutrition space. It’s been great to see their continued growth and what’s led to this podcast. It’s a great podcast that helps you move your own thinking and thought process forward with some great personality!
Only complaint would be that it could use a bit more Jeb and a bit less dean but has overall great quality
Only listen if you enjoy success.
If you happen to be a Barbell/Health/PR chasing son of a gun then you'll love this podcast.
