Podcast Notes Summary – The Immunity Elixir

Having now listened to hundreds (maybe thousands?) of podcasts, we thought it might be time to start compiling the best findings and recommendations we have heard. Given the crazy flu this year, we wanted to get started with immunity. Getting sick sucks, but there are ways to reduce your risk. Here’s a recipe, pieced together from interviews with Tim Ferriss, Rhonda Patrick, and many other high performers, on how to avoid getting sick and keep your immune system functioning properly.

The Tim Ferriss Show: Tim Answers the 11 Questions from Tribe of Mentors

This is an unusual episode. Instead of the typical interview format where Tim asks other people questions, he did what thousands of you have requested; he answered the 11 questions that are the foundation of Tribe of Mentors (and added in a few bonus answers). From beliefs that have changed his life to how he copes with feelings of overwhelm, he goes into depth on all of his answers.

The Tim Ferriss Show: Ray Dalio, The Steve Jobs of Investing

Ray Dalio grew up a middle-class kid from Long Island. He started his investment company Bridgewater Associates out of a two-bedroom apartment at age 26, and it now has roughly $160 billion in assets under management. Over 42 years, he has built Bridgewater into what Fortune considers the fifth most important private company in the U.S.

Along the way, Dalio became one the 100 most influential people in the world (according to Time) and one of the 100 wealthiest people in the world (according to Forbes). Because of his unique investment principles that have changed industries, CIO Magazine dubbed him “the Steve Jobs of investing.”

Ray believes his success is the result of principles he’s learned, codified, and applied to his life and business. Those principles are detailed in his new book Principles: Life and Work.

Time-Restricted Feeding and Its Effects on Obesity, Muscle Mass & Heart Health

Dr. Rhonda Patrick speaks with Dr. Satchin Panda, a professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla California. Satchin’s work deals specifically with the timing of food and it’s relationship with our biological clocks governed by circadian rhythm and also the circadian rhythm in general. In this video we discuss… The fascinating history of experimentation that ultimately elucidated the location for the region of the brain necessary for a properly timed sleep-wake cycles. The relationship between our body’s “master clock” and it’s many peripheral clocks. Why infants sleep so intermittently, instead of resting for a longer, sustained duration like healthy young adults… and why this sustained rest also goes haywire in the elderly. The fascinating work Dr. Panda took part in that lead to the discovery of a specialized light receptor in the eye that sets circadian rhythms and is known as melanopsin. The important relationship between the relatively light insensitive melanopsin, which requires around 1,000 lux of light to be fully activated, and its control of the circadian clock by means of activation of the suprachiasmatic nucleus and suppression of melatonin. The effects light exposure seems to have on next-day cortisol, a glucocorticoid hormone that regulates around 10-20% of the human protein-encoding genome. The clever experimental design by which Dr. Panda and his colleagues discovered that certain circadian rhythms, especially of the liver, are entrained by when we eat, instead of how much light we get. This underlines the fact that, when managing are circadian rhythm, both elements are important! One of the more surprising effects of time-restricted feeding in mice eating a so-called healthy diet: increases in muscle mass and even endurance in some cases. Interested in trying out time-restricted feeding? Don’t let your data points go to waste! You can try out time-restricted feeding and have a real impact on human research!
