Podcast Bonanza: International Edition
Apologies on my end for the increased incidence of abrupt posts of late. I do want to disclose some significant life events and projects that have transpired in recent days and weeks, however I’m afraid I have to play the nebulous card and keep everyone in the dark for the time being.1
Everything is hunky-dory, all is well. I’m just stupid busy with several projects and my writing has been slacking as a result
To help make up for it, I wanted to share two appearances I made recently on two separate (international) podcasts.
You’re reading that correctly, I was invited onto a nutrition podcast.
The idea of me discussing the efficacy of high-carb vs. low-carb diets, gluconeogenesis, gluten intolerance, and the absurdity that there’s such a thing as “Paleo brownies” (and that people keep a straight face when they argue that they’re somehow healthier than “regular” brownies) is daunting in of itself.
Nutrition is not me strong-suit.
Luckily, the host, Danny Lennon, knew as much, and he and I had a lovely chat on coaching instead. I had a great time recording this episode, and if nothing else you get to listen to a British accent intersperced in the conversation for 45 minutes.
Top Canadian trainer, Dave Smith, invited me onto his podcast to discuss the follow reader questions:
“I spend a lot to time training and do a few races each year. My times have actually improved a fair bit recently, and I’m 41, not getting younger, but I don’t love what’s happening to my body composition. I look soft. I know that strength training is the ticket, but I find it hard to make time for weights, run, and have time to recover. When I lift, my running seems to suffer. How can I do it all and get the results I’m looking for. Ha! I guess I’m hard to please. Thanks, from Robert.”
He and I spend about 25 minutes discussing the answer.
