Huberman Podcast - 5 Stars from Me
« on: March 18, 2023, 09:33:02 AM »

I've seen a few threads mentioning this podcast, but I wanted to draw everyone who is interested in improving their health, starting at any age or stage, to this incredible free resource.

Way back when I first came across MMM (more than a decade ago) I was already practicing many of the strategies that let me to reach FI in a ten-year period.  But MMM added a lot of useful tools that accelerated that process and a lot of comfort with a community of people trying stuff out and posting results.  Not to forget all the great links and resources.   Thank you community :)   

The Huberman Podcasts have had a similar level impact on my life. I am in my early 50s and not super unhealthy, but not super fit neither.  And I had high cholesterol results at my last blood test... leading me to try to figure out how to optimize my health now my kids are grown, we are FI, and I have time plus bad blood test motivation.

The scientifically-based information in these podcasts is direct, concise, easy to follow, and I trust it.  Dr. Huberman is a Stanford Prof in Neurobiology and Ophthalmology and he is very logical and data-driven.  And after one month of implementing some of the recommendations, which cost me almost nothing to do, I do feel a major improvement.  I started with simple things like intermittent fasting (I eat lunch and dinner), viewing morning light, dimming lights at night, listening to relaxation scripts, adding Vit D3 and Omega 3, and getting my heart rate up while walking.   

I will be implementing other changes throughout the next year and I'm excited to see how good I can feel, and how I can support my family to do the same if they are interested.

Please give the podcasts a listen if this is a new resource and this appeals to you.

I do like this one, though I only check in once in awhile.  It's a little lengthy, but packed with real information.  He was just interviewed on Tim Ferriss's podcast this week, too. 

I also love Peter Attia's The Drive, which overlaps a lot with this.

I have found Huberman accurate and informative.  Don't listen to it very often, as it's informationally dense and my mind wanders so usually an episode will require several listens through for me to squeeze all the juice out.

I'm a fan of Huberman's too. I usually listen on 1.5 times speed because the podcasts are quite the time commitment. When he's covering a topic that is very relevant to me, I either slow down the episode or listen to it twice. Follow him on IG too, where he posts the tasty tidbits from the podcasts. I've even expanded into following a few his interviewees, usually from similar uni research labs, because their info was especially useful. His IG lives where he responds to questions are entertaining and talks a bit about his background and what got him interested in neuroscience. Someone always asks him "are you my dad?" and it seems to have become a running joke because he responds with "Uh... not sure. who is your mother?"

I love Huberman and have been listening to his podcasts since Pete wrote about them.

I cannot overstate how awesome the guy is. I have also listened to several podcasts from people he has interviewed, bought their books, etc.

I have made several changes in my life based on his podcasts which have had remarkable results. Sunlight, eating right, exercise, stress and recovery, trauma recovery, etc. Awesome stuff.
