Today on the show, we welcome Bill Schutt. I hope that you already ate, because today, we are talking about a topic pretty unlike anything we have talked about before on the podcast: Cannibalism. Bill is a zoologist and bestselling author who recently wrote a book titled Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History where he talks about cannibalism across all species, including humans. This isn’t a sensationalist book, but rather a sociological, cultural and anthropological look at the reasons why cannibalism occurs in nature. Bill covers topics such as cannibalism among ancestral humans and Neanderthals, as well as the diseases related to forced cannibalism. When it comes to cannibalism, Bill uses the term “Culture is King” and how that can explain why some cultures consider eating their dead to be a more practical, reasonabl,e and respectful practice than, say, burying them. Cannibalism is something that has fascinated humans for centuries, and Bill is all about de-mystifying it, reiterating that it is all about the lens through which you look at certain behaviors. So put down your fork and have a listen to this fascinating talk that will give you loads of great conversation pieces for your next dinner party. Bon a petit!

Today’s guest is Jason Thomas, athlete, explorer and founder of Pili Hunters. Ever heard of a pili nut? Well, just a few years back, Jason basically introduced the incredible pili nut to north America. On a trip to the Philippines, Jason discovered this super nut — a richer, fattier, low-carb nut, packed with nutrients. The route Jason took to finding his passion and founding his company is definitely special. From growing up in Alaska, to boxing in Las Vegas, to leading mountaineering treks around the world, kite-surfing, and doing cross fit — Jason is one of those people who has pretty much “done it all.” In this episode, Jason shares how a serious stint with rhabdo led to a year-long recovery process and, ultimately, to the pili nut! We’ll also learn all about the health benefits and harvesting of the pili nut and why Jason decided to do business the “old-fashioned” way. Take a listen to learn more about this awesome product taking the keto world by storm!

Today on the show, we welcome Frankie and Theo, founders of Kimera Koffee. Nootropics could possibly be one of the hottest topics these days. Pills, drinks, and supplements infused with natural nootropics and adaptogens that are meant to improve your cognitive performance, assist in memory retention and mood and generally make you feel like a better and more productive human being. One of the more creative companies that are doing this a little differently is Kimera Koffee, a brand that infuses their coffee with amino acids and natural extracts like Taurine, Allithiamine and L Glutamine for energy, focus, and concentration. In this episode we find out how Kimera Koffee do things differently. In terms of their business model, how they harvest their beans, their very unique approach to social media and how they choose their brilliant brand ambassadors. In addition to the whole coffee thing, we also digress to topics such as boybands and jiu-jitsu. Even if you aren’t into nootropics, and even if you’re not a coffee person, this is an insightful and entertaining interview with two successful business owners who are staying true to themselves and doing things their own way.

On today’s episode, we welcome Darryl Edwards, who may arguably be one of the most fun paleo authorities around. Darryl is a speaker, a coach, nutritionist, an author, and the founder of Fitness Explorer Training. You might recognize his Primal Play methodology or perhaps you’ve just seen him piggybacking his friends around at different events. He’s been published in magazines like ELLE, Men’s Fitness, Women’s Health, and he even has a feature in an international documentary called We Love Paleo. Darryl was also recently interviewed for a new book called Born Primal and his goal with Primal Play is to make movement and activity fun and effective. Making individuals healthier and fitter in a way that’s enjoyable, rather than tedious. Although it certainly can be, play doesn’t have to mean silly or superfluous. As you’ll learn in this episode, play can also be an intense workout and help you become faster, fitter and stronger. Darryl’s method is not about rules and incremental improvements, but about moving your body creatively and using your environment to do so. Today, Darryl gives us some tips on how we can start running like a bear, chasing cars, climbing trees and putting play into practice. He also talks about the state of paleo both in London and the U.S and the future of the movement. Take a listen!

Key Points From This Episode:

  • How discussions around the paleo movement have evolved.
  • Diversifying paleo: How can paleo be made more accessible?
  • Differences between the paleo community in the UK and the U.S.
  • Why are there 19 ingredients in a US French fry?
  • Learn more about Darryl’s latest book feature in Born Primal.
  • Discover how Darryl’s Primal Play method was born.
  • How you can achieve more from play than a work out.
  • Why cherishing convenience isn’t beneficial for us.
  • How you can start putting play into practice today.
  • And much more!

Today on the show we welcome Caitlin Allday, the Founder of Paleo University as well as the Director of Content and the organization’s nutrition coach. She is a personal nutrition coaching consultant, she studied nutrition at NYU, completed her dietetic internship at Texas ANM, and she’s also registered dietician and nutritionist. On top of that, she’s also kind of like the Indiana Jones of Paleo! Caitlin has been playing around with the paleo model of evolutionary nutrition in her own life for about a decade, and after working with many clients, she soon realized that the main issue for many people is not the idea of what to eat, it’s knowing how to cook healthy, real food in a way that’s simple, convenient, efficient, and sustainable. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re trying to break long standing habits and form new ones. So Caitlin decided to create this resource, Paleo University, where all the recipes, tutorials, meal plans, grocery lists, and kitchen skill info, is in one place. Making it easier for you to join and contribute to a more accessible community surrounding healthy habits. Today, we talk with Caitlin about her fascinating nutrition journey and what Paleo University offers, and maybe get some tips on how to be healthier, up your kitchen skills, and be more proactive in the kitchen. Take a listen!
