I have three main interests: business, flying and human physiology. This podcast relates to the third – physiology.
Dr Rhonda Patrick is a very cool academic. She focuses on biomedical science at the University of Tennessee. She also runs a site called ‘Found My Fitness‘, but she is anything but a fitness bore. Her interests are very wide-ranging, from brain health, physical performance, nutrition and wellbeing – in all cases she brings an academic and rigorous approach to the subject.
Once again, she is a long-form podcaster (meaning her interviews are usually between 1 and 2 hours long), and some of the material can be heavy going. But she does manage to bridge the gap between academia and mainstream – that has made her a hit on the life-hacking podcast scene.
I have heard her interviewed by others, and I have also listened to many of her podcasts. This one is a ripper.
In this podcast she interviews a researcher studying ‘biological clocks’ and the circadian rhythm – Dr Satchin Panda. This material has day-to-day application for all of us – how to sleep better, eat better and generally optimise things with nothing more than a better understanding of how important our body clocks are to our general overall health.
