A Longevity Masterclass: Emerging Science & Timeless Wisdom of Healthy Aging

Ep. 688

Welcome to our fourth masterclass episode where we share big truths from some of my best podcast guests, honing in on a single theme or subject matter. Today we are diving deep into the subject of longevity, specifically: how to age healthfully, how to biologically promote longevity, how to embrace your innate potential for growth beyond the prescribed productive years, and how to cultivate a true life-long expansion of self.


From science and technology to diet and mindset, there are choices you can make to access not simply the longest lifespan possible, but also the greatest health span your body is capable of. There are real, tangible, practical methods we can employ to get the maximum value out of our bodies and therefore our lives.


As always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Malcolm Gladwell Is Lord Of All Things Overlooked and Misunderstood

Ep. 692
What are the limits of human performance? How can we reimagine sport to boost lifelong adoption? Andwhat 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 podcastRevisionist 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 asThe Tipping Point,Blink,Outliers,David and Goliath,andTalking 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.More about Malcom + show notes: https://bit.ly/richroll692aToday’s Sponsors:Athletic Greens:75 whole food sourced ingredients designed to optimize 5 key areas of health.
