Eric sits down with leading fitness geek, guru, thinker and human guinea-pig Ben Greenfield to learn how one of the world’s most highly regarded trainers and fitness experts cuts through the nightmare that is our medical literature. 

The academic and medical literature in health and medicine is a disaster. Studies are performed and reported in non-standard and idiosyncratic ways which are then further distorted by a press often looking more for headlines and scoops than facts and rigor. In this episode we get to ask one of the most sought after fitness optimizers how ordinary people can better understand their own minds, brains and bodies in light of the cacophony of ‘expert’ opinion. Ben, here in his role of master pedagogue, gives detailed implementable answers as well as simple to follow priorities that sum up his years of study and training for the mere mortals who wish to better everything in their lives by tackling health at the fundamental level.

At a time when our collective culture is beginning to grapple with the hard issues around end of life, Silicon Valley’s quest for longevity might appear to be a bit out of touch. By examining their own personal impulses – one toward facing death, the other toward hacking our DNA to radically delay dying – friends and cultural pioneers Michael Hebb and Eric Weinstein explore the existential, ethical and invariably personal dimensions of accepting or defying mortality.
