628: Meeting Your Heroes Part 1
Today we are playing one of my favorite interviews as a bonus weekend episode. Dr. Peter Attia is a legend in the biohacking and longevity space, and it was a honor to sit down with him for this interview. Throughout our conversation he draws on his incredible personal experiences and thorough knowledge of the cutting edge of science to provide digestible bits of information we can all put to use.
For those of you that don’t know Dr. Attia, he is a concierge physician with offices in San Diego and New York. He graduated from medical school at Stanford and went on to a surgical residency at Johns Hopkins. He also spent years training and competing as an endurance athlete in many different sports. Check out some of his other interviews with Tim Ferriss, Jocko Willink, and Joe Rogan, or on his own podcast The Drive.
Topics covered in this part one episode:
- Spinal injuries and how they can change your perspective
- Endurance competition as a mental struggle with burnout
- What cutting out sugar really looks like
- Leaving milestones behind to chase intellectual curiosities
