More Episodes
I recently went on a whirlwind tour of LA for my new book Boundless. Rather than a formal presentation or lecture, I instead did plenty of panels and Q&A's instead, and recorded them all for your listening and educational pleasure!
 
In the first part of this episode, you'll hear me on a panel with Dr. Darshan Shah of NextHealth, with whom I have collaborated on multiple podcasts, including:

- BGF: 12 Easy & Practical Ways To Upgrade Your Body & Brain (Ben Greenfield’s Live Talk From NextHealth In LA!)

- Forefront by NextHealth: "Optimizing Your Body Mind and Soul" with Ben Greenfield 

After the panel with Dr. Shah, in which we discussed sleep, habits, routines, rituals, longevity, biohacking, parenting, spirituality and much more, you'll hear the Q&A we recorded at that same event.
 
In the second part of this episode, you'll hear a separate Q&A recorded at the second book launch party at The Bungalow, in which we cover deep sleep, REM sleep, sex hacking, plant medicine and psychedelics, NAD best practices, sirtuins and a host of other interesting topics.
 
If you haven't yet purchased your copy of Boundless, you can grab it here.
