241: Biohacking for Moms, Anti-Aging & Raising Amazing Kids With Ben Greenfield
My guest today is the exceptional Ben Greenfield, and since he won’t share his mile-long list of accomplishments himself, I’m going to brag on him for a bit. He is a life-long complete nerd (which I can say because I’m one too). He started college at 16 and studied anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, pharmaceuticals, microbiology, biochemistry, and nutrition, graduating in 2004 at 20 years old as the top senior in his class. Ben was accepted into six medical schools but opted for a master’s degree in exercise, physiology, and biomechanics. Now he has gyms and labs across the country and was voted America’s top personal trainer in 2008. He also founded Kion, a fitness company geared toward helping the world’s hard-charging, high achievers to achieve a truly limitless life. I highly, highly recommend all of his books, especially Beyond Training andtheChristian Gratitude Journal. He also has ablog and a podcast that reach millions each month, and I’ll link to those in the show no...
240: How Ethical Businesses Are Changing the World With Thrive Market Founder Nick Green
Today I have the pleasure of talking to a friend and someone I highly respect to go deep on things like ethical business and how we can all help change the future for the next generation. I’m here with Nick Green, who is the co-founder and CEO of Thrive Market, which you all have heard me talk about plenty of times before. What you may not know is that in addition to making healthy food and sustainable products more accessible, Thrive Market (thanks in large part to Nick) makes it their mission to have a positive social impact in everything they do. We’ll talk about Thrive Market’s giving initiatives, why they have such a deep dedication to helping families and communities, and how the creation of socially conscious companies has the power to transform our world for the better. Episode Highlights With Nick Green How Nick and his co-founder came up with the idea for Thrive Market and got the business started Why their first ideas didn’t work, and how they found the model that did The retailer that will soon pass Whole Foods for selling the most organic produce (it may surprise you!) Thrive Market’s standards for their private label brands and how they save consumers so much money Advances in sustainable, non-toxic food packaging and how Thrive Market is leading the pack Thrive Market vs. Amazon packaging and the difference it can make for the environment How Nick made it a priority to create zero waste fulfillment centers What the Thrive Gives program does to make sure every family has access to healthy food, regardless of income level How they vet their products to protect against greenwashing And more!

239: How Biological Medicine Is Changing Health (& How to Try It in Switzerland!)
Robyn Openshaw is an incredible human being and dear friend of mine, as you all probably remember from our previous podcast interview. I met Robyn a few years ago at a biological medicine clinic in Switzerland and we really hit it off. She’s amazing since she is not only a dedicated single mom of four kids (who are all now flying the coop), she’s also managed to travel to a huge number of clinics across the globe, interviewing the world’s top experts and inspecting clinics that deal with biological medicine and alternative therapies. Because of her intense personal research and firsthand knowledge, Robyn is now considered one of the top experts in the world herself on all kinds of health topics. She’s lectured in over 450 cities in the last six years after launching her popular site, GreenSmoothieGirl.com, and has authored fifteen books including the bestsellers The Green Smoothies Diet and 12 Steps to Whole Food. Her latest book is called Vibe. Not to mention (but I will) thatR...
