I read and listen to a lot of stuff every week (articles, podcasts, videos, books etc.). I like to think I’m good at finding content that helps shift my thinking in a significant way, and also gives practical advice. Things I can implement today, which immediately make a positive change in my life.
I used to send my favourite pieces of content as part of a fortnightly newsletter, but I retired it last year.
Last week I stumbled on a few things that I think are so good, I just had to share them. You can find them below.
I won’t bring the newsletter back, but I will round up the best of the best in a post like this from time to time.

Andrew Huberman is a Neuroscientist and his podcast Huberman Lab is one of the most popular health podcasts. He dives deep into scientific topics around health and longevity and has some really smart guests on.
A guy called Riley Tomasek created Huberman AI, a website that uses AI to pull answers from Huberman Lab episodes. The quality of the answers are mind blowing. This might be the best free, online resource for finding information on health and longevity
For example, ask ‘How much magnesium should I take?’ and you’ll get the following answer, and five links to specific places on previous episodes where magnesium dosing is discussed:
The food I Eat 100% affects how my whole day goes by Joe Rogan
