108. Situps Are Stupid and Crunches Are Crap & The Good Sh*T | Dr. Todd Sinett
It’s time to change the way you think about, and exercise, your abs. Dr. Todd Sinett, a second-generation chiropractor and certified fitness trainer, explains why you should never do a sit-up or any version of a crunch ever again! Sinett’s innovative new book—which includes a detailed exercise routine (illustrated with photos) and a meal guide—teaches healthier and smarter ways to get great abs without compromising your back and neck anymore. Sit-Ups Are Stupid and Crunches Are Crap, based on the science of flexion, addresses the key issue of core imbalance and the resulting (and totally unnecessary) pain. Dr. Sinett shows how achieving core balance will transform your flexibility, breathing, and digestion—and, yes, get you the abs you’ve always wanted. Great abs no longer have to equal great pain.
The Good Sh*t will teach you about the digestive system and how your body talks. You'll learn how to wade through all the diet bullsh*t that hasn't worked for you and never will. You'll learn how to figure out which foods are affecting your output and how to best create a nutrition plan that works for you and the way your body functions. You will learn what a good sh*t is, what it should look like, and how to have them regularly so that you can start looking and feeling better. This book is a path to self-discovery that will open your eyes to specific foods that you digest and excrete well, as well as others that you will, should be staying away from—even if they have been described as a supposed "superfood." By looking at your output, The Good Sh*t will help you understand the best things to input. Ultimately, this is a book about how to have really great sh*ts.

106. HAB. The Best Water Flavor Product On The Market
Shane McCassy, The Founder and CEO of Hab has spent the last 17 years growing exciting startups and influential brands like Oakley, Amp’d Mobile, Muscle Milk, and Tone It Up. His experience has given him the privilege of launching national retailers, websites, mobile apps, and has commercialized more than 100 consumer products in the health and wellness space. During his 7 year tenure as Director of Marketing at Muscle Milk, their goal was to position protein as a lifestyle product and bring it to the masses like it hadn’t been before. As COO of Tone It Up he learned the power of community and the impact of a company aimed to do good.
During his 5 years with Tone It Up, Shane became much more aware of his own sustainability and began to eliminate plastic and single-use waste from his daily life. This lifestyle change and previous experiences led him to the idea behind Hab. He loved drinking water from his reusable bottle but would turn to a plastic bottle or aluminum can when he needed a little flavor. After too many days of seeing the pile of single-use waste, he thought, “There has to be a product that gives me the flavor I love without all the waste!”
After finding no such products that fit his core values, he began the development of Hab. Hab’s guiding principles were simple; Let's make water taste amazing, with a plastic-free supply chain, no single-use waste, and never any artificial ingredients. The solution is Hab’s naturally flavored bits, a dose-as-you-like tablet that pairs perfectly with your reusable bottle of choice, flat or bubbly. He hopes you all enjoy great tasting fruit-flavored water, sustainably.
In this episode:
- The importance of drinking water
- Sustainability and what that means in the water industry
- Energy, focus, attention, and mood can all be related to drinking water
- Flavored water and how it can encourage you to drink more of it
- The background of HAB (HABIT) and creating a revolutionary product to flavor water

82. Dr. Leonard Scott: The Ultimate Boost From Within - 31 Days to Health, Wealth, Wholeness, & Happiness
Aches, pains, lack of sufficient resources, and generalized feelings of inadequacy can sneak into our lives as we approach our latter years. We recognize that there are some aspects of our being that we have little to no influence over, such as our genetic makeup, our parental lineage, the family we have inherited and the legacy that accompanies it and at least to some extent, the country or environment where we reside. However, there are many other aspects of our lives that are affected either directly or indirectly by our efforts. The Ultimate Boost from Within helps you put these efforts to work for you and your overall health and wellbeing.
Dr. Leonard Scott is the founder and CEO of the nation's oldest gospel recording company, Tyscot, Inc., which has been home to many superstar recording artists in the genre. He is also a highly sought-after health practitioner in the field of dentistry, a radio talk show host on health, a pastor, and author of three books, his latest being The Ultimate Boost from Within, 31 Days to Health, Wealth, Wholeness and Happiness.
Dr. Scott has successfully practiced dentistry in his home community of Indianapolis, Indiana for over forty years. He pastors Rock Church there, but has traveled throughout the United States and abroad, speaking on health-related topics and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In his many years of practicing in the health field and interviewing hundreds of health professionals on the radio talk show Medically Speaking, sponsored by the Marion County Public Health Department, he has observed the gross discrepancies of those who are sick and those who are healthy and has come to the conclusion that the gap between the two is not always that wide. The sick among us can greatly improve their lives by making only a few changes. He concludes that the road to a healthier, more prosperous life can be found in the pages of his new book.

75. Cavin Balaster: Feed A Brain
In 2011, Cavin fell 20 feet from a rooftop water tower scaffolding. His head struck a steel beam on the way down before crashing onto the concrete rooftop below. He was immediately rushed to the hospital and put on life support. While in a coma, an MRI revealed a severe diffuse axonal injury (DAI), which is one of the most devastating types of brain injury. Statistically…over 90 percent of patients with this brain injury never regain consciousness, and most of those who do will often remain in a persistent vegetative state.
His recovery journey began after finally waking from a 12-day coma before serious complications arose with the need to induce a second coma. In the following months, he endured severe brain fog, memory loss, breathing problems, in coordination with the left side of my body (my left hand was completely flexed inward), and…he didn’t eat, walk, or talk for months.
Following the acute stages of his brain injury, a dense brain fog, limited mobility, and numerous other difficulties persisted he continued to navigate the physical and emotional toll of his new circumstances. At a pivotal moment, he was introduced to functional medicine, which illuminated for him a different way of looking at recovery. As several treatments, exercises, and therapies were implemented…he began to reclaim the mental clarity I had before my injury.
An enormous amount of work and therapy played in his rehabilitation as he worked to regain everyday faculties and relearned how to live.
In this podcast interview Cavin talks about:
- The aftermath of his accident and the process of finding the right modalities for the best chance for a full recovery.
- How nutrition played a pivotal role in his recovery and the benefits of good nutrition on the brain.
- His inspiration for writing his book called Feed A Brain.
- The benefits of exercise and nutrition on proper brain function.
- Positive habits that optimize brain function.
- And so much more.

Dr. Youn is a regular expert on The Rachael Ray Show, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and was named a "Top Plastic Surgeon" by U.S. News and World Report, Town & Country, and Harper's Bazaar.
Anthony Youn, MD is known as America’s Holistic Beauty Doc™ and one of the country’s most recognized plastic surgeons. He is the host of a popular podcast, The Holistic Plastic Surgery Show.

Dr. Youn is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
"I am a doctor."
Every year, thousands of medical school graduates utter these four simple words. But as you will see in Playing God, earning an M.D. is just the first step to becoming a real physician.
In this page-turning, thrilling, and moving memoir, Dr. Anthony Youn reveals that the true metamorphosis from student to doctor occurs not in medical school but in the formative years of residency training and early practice. It is only through actually saving and losing patients, taking on the medical establishment, wrestling with financial and emotional survival, and fighting for patients’ lives that a young doctor becomes a mature and competent physician. Youn takes you from the operating rooms of a university surgery residency program to the gleaming offices of top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons to opening the doors of his empty clinic as a new doctor with no money, no patients, and mountains of debt. Playing God leaves you with an unexpected answer to that profound question: “What does it mean to be a doctor?”
