The Healthy Skeptic Podcast
The healthy Skeptic Podcast is the podcast that people with podcasts listen to. While most of the podcasts I talk about a great because they aim at the beginner or the generalist, you need to be pretty well versed in Paleo just to keep up with the banter between Chris Kresser and Danny Roddy.
Each week they choose a topic and simply go to town on the specifics and the details that you really are not going to find anywhere else. Chris does a great job of making these PH.d level topics as accessible as possible for the lay person.
When I started listening to the podcast I considered myself pretty well versed in the subject of Paleo. I mean, I was already giving two plus hour lectures in the gym. So I figured that this would be just another means for me to keep current on the latest developments and keep myself amused. I was very wrongs.
Apparently, the digestive tract and the way that food interacts with it and the it interacts with the rest of your body is rather complicated. I almost hate that I primarily listen to this podcast while driving. Partly because Chris is kind of monotone and I’m usually on the road really late or really early.
The real reason is that there is so much good information being put across the airwaves that I don’t time or the cognition to fully comprehend it all.
The podcast answers some really tough and really specific questions. Its sort of a nice, weekly humbling experience of what my limitations are. What I do as an advisor in the gym and on the blog, Chris does as a practice and has the knowledge and pedigree to back up his profession.
Chris is on a whole different level in terms of Paleo knowledge. Its a privilege to listen to him speak for free in my car. I will say that if you are new to Paleo it may be too much information. Also, if you are a hypochondriac you will probably freak the hell out.
So definitely check this out. Its a probably the highest level class available in car university.
