Logan Christopher

Been a fan of this guy since he doing heavy rack pulls and 1 handed pushups on YouTube. We’re around the same age. But this guys is always a few steps ahead of me in my own research of physical culture.

Best herbs by far

I have been into herbs the last decade and Lost Empire as a whole group are my new favorite

Wealth of knowledge

I really enjoyed the episode about medicinal mushrooms. It really goes into detail about how to find mushrooms that are grown on wood, instead of grains. The medicinal effects of mushrooms are only present when naturally grown on wood. Happy to know superman herbs gets their mushrooms from natural sources.

Will check out other poscast.
