  • Fixing Our Feet with Jim Dooner | Ep. 42
    Jul 10 2024

    Jim Dooner is the Head Physiotherapist of The Foot Collective, a global health community whose primary focus is feet. Their mission is to "empower as many people as possible with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to create more foot and movement freedom in their lives."

    For the past few years I've been wearing Xero Shoes, and absolutely loving the freedom my feet feel while inside of a shoe. We have recently moved to Australia, where we are now barefoot now more than ever which is even better. Our feet are one of the most overlooked and neglected parts of our body, and we don't realize the enormous impact they have on so many parts of our daily lives. Jim talks about the science around the foot, how we can improve our foot function, and ultimately our quality of life.

  • Built to Move with Kelly and Juliet Starrett | Ep. 41
    Jul 9 2024

    Kelly and Juliet Starrett are the founders of The Ready State, and authors of the New York Times' Bestseller Built to Move. "This is the first body book written for exercisers and nonexercisers alike. It’s full of foundational wisdom for everyone from professional athletes to gym haters and everyone in between. Built to Move introduces readers to a set of simple principles and practices that are undemanding enough to work into any busy schedule, lead to greater ease of movement, better health, and a happier life doing whatever it is you love to do—and want to continue doing as long as you live. This book is your game plan for the long game."

    This is my second time interviewing Kelly, first with Juliet, and I wish I could interview them one-hundred times more. They have an amazing perspective on fitness and health, and especially how that weaves into parenting. They are masters of their craft, designing simple and effective movements practices that are accessible to all. This book is one that should be in everyone's home, and incorporated into all of our lives.

  • Quantifiyng Nature with Jared Hanley | Ep. 40
    Jul 8 2024

    Jared Hanley is the Founder and CEO is NatureQuant, which "analyzes nature's impact to help improve health and well-being on a large scale. We focus on nature quantification and exposure assessment, innovative data sources, and analytical techniques. Derived from big-data and machine learning, our patent-pending technology optimizes the health benefits of nature.".

    Jared explains how they have figured out a way to prove the positive impacts nature has on our health, and the steps they are taking to raise public awareness on this topic. Their company has collaborated with L.L.Bean, REI, The National Park Service and many more. Hopefully in the years to come we can expand this technology to track time spent in nature for kids, and start to make some huge program shifts in schools.
