    Centenarian Mike Fremont On Longevity Secrets, Breaking World Running Records & How To Thrive

    Centenarian Mike Fremont On Longevity Secrets, Breaking World Running Records & How To Thrive

    Today we explore health, fitness, longevity & the pursuit of meaning through the lived experience of a human who has been walking planet Earth for a full 100 years.
    Meet centenarian Mike Fremont, a retired engineer turned climate activist and life-long athlete who holds a slew of impressive age group world records in running, including the fastest recorded marathons for an 88-year-old, 90-year-old, and a 91-year-old.
    I was introduced to Mike by his running buddy elite ultra-marathoner and popular friend of the pod Harvey Lewis, who helped arrange today’s unique opportunity to learn and be inspired by someone who has not only been alive for so long but who has remained incredibly vibrant well beyond social expectations. For those of you who feel like it’s too late or you’ve missed the boat on being an athlete, this guy’s marathon career didn’t even kick into high gear until his 60’s—40 years ago!
    This conversation is my attempt to extract his testimony and counsel for younger generations. We dive into what he has learned about life, longevity, vitality, purpose, fitness, and setting and world records. We also discuss the WFPB diet (which he adopted 30 years ago in the wake of a colon cancer diagnosis) that fuels his training, keeps him spry, informs his climate activism, and in his words, is what has allowed him to thrive for decades beyond social expectations.
    It’s not often you get the opportunity to spend time with a centenarian. This is a small attempt to course correct mainstream culture's failure to appropriately appreciate our elders.
    I loved having Mike on the show, consider him a new friend, and I’m proud to share his voice with you.

    Heidi Zuckerman: Why Art Matters

    Heidi Zuckerman: Why Art Matters

    What defines art? What makes one an artist? What does art teach us—and why does it matter?
    To help us make sense of a world elusive to many, today I convene with the singular Heidi Zuckerman.
    A woman I’ve known for over 30 years, Heidi has devoted her entire professional career to understanding art, the people who make art, and why we should care.
    Heidi currently serves as CEO and Director of the Orange County Museum of Art, where she is overseeing construction of a spectacular new building designed by legendary architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis, scheduled to open in October 2022.
    In addition, she hosts Conversations About Art (a podcast on which I was privileged to be a guest) and is the author of the Conversations with Artists book series.
    This is a conversation about art.
    In addition to tracking Heidi’s career arc, we discuss what defines art, what makes for great art, why we should care about art, and why artists matter.
    We discuss the barriers to accessing art. How art can and should be democratized. And the role of art and artists in this era of offense and content overload.
    On a personal level, this one is very meaningful given my long history with Heidi.
    I really enjoyed this conversation—I hope you learn as much as I did.

    Peter Attia, MD On Becoming a Centenarian Decathlete, Metabolic Health & All Things Zone 2

    Peter Attia, MD On Becoming a Centenarian Decathlete, Metabolic Health & All Things Zone 2

    Healthspan extension may pique your interest. But it’s the obsession of today’s guest, a physician and engineer focused on the applied science of longevity to reframe and improve how we live while challenging all we’ve been previously taught about the interaction of health, human performance, and medicine.
    Meet Peter Attia, MD.
    Peter’s current practice deals extensively with nutritional interventions, exercise physiology, sleep physiology, emotional and mental health, and pharmacology to increase lifespan (how long you live), while simultaneously improving healthspan (the quality of your life).
    Today’s conversation, the first in what I hope to be many, focuses on the following specific topics:

    Longevity. From a holistic perspective, discussing the physical, mental and emotional pillars required to erect the foundation for a long life well-lived, including how and why he is training (as all us of should be) for what he calls “The Centenarian Decathlon”.Metabolic health. What this actually means, how to optimize it, and the role a Continuous Glucose Monitor (or CGM) can play in engaging you with your own metabolic health.Strength, mobility and brain health.Zone 2 training. What it is, how to do it, and why it’s important.
    Peter is an utterly fascinating human with a clear grasp of science and how to effectively communicate it. I hope you enjoy this exchange as much as I was honored to host it.

    Malcolm Gladwell Is Lord Of All Things Overlooked and Misunderstood

    Malcolm Gladwell Is Lord Of All Things Overlooked and Misunderstood

    What are the limits of human performance? How can we reimagine sport to boost lifelong adoption? And what is the athlete’s role in moving culture forward?
    Today we explore these questions and tons more with the lord of all things overlooked and misunderstood, Malcolm Gladwell.
    I suspect most of you are very familiar with Malcolm. Perhaps you’ve listened to his sensational podcast Revisionist History, where every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether our collective stories got it right the first time.
    Or maybe you’ve read one of his six New York Times best sellers, such as The Tipping Point,Blink, Outliers, David and Goliath, and Talking to Strangers.
    Today’s conversation begins with running, extends to sport, broadens into a conversation about the role of athletes in moving society forward, and (of course) unearths other topics overlooked and misunderstood—all in true Gladwellian style.
    We talk about his latest podcast, Legacy of Speed, and why this terrain just might be his most Gladwellian project to date.
    Malcolm also shares several of his orthogonal ideas around education, publishing, the future of audio, creativity, and many more fascinating topics.
    Today’s episode is also viewable on YouTube.

    I hope you enjoy this exchange as much as I was thrilled to host it.
