In Search of Lost Mojo

On this podcast, I interview world-class athletes, adventurers, and achievers from ages 50 to 150, as well as globally renowned experts in human optimization, in a quest to unlock the secrets of lifelong high performance. We’ll uncover actionable insights on training methods, nutrition, mental agility, emerging technologies, state-of-the art research, and everything in between. We’ll also get to tap into the essence of true wisdom that our guests have forged through the crucible of time, trials, and triumphs. In the process, we’re going to disrupt and upend the very notion of what it means to “get old”.
