Podcast by the pool

I LOVE a good podcast. When done well, it is both informative and relaxing. On top of that, the intimate quality of it can make me me feel like I am having a really good talk with a very clever friend.

One of my favorite travel companions is Dr. Rhonda Patrick, an American biomedical scientist who is passionate about democratizing medical knowledge. In her binge-worthy ‘FoundMyFitness’ podcast, she shares the latest research on aging, brain health, physical performance, well-being and nutrition. The best part: she does it in such a way that you understand how to integrate this information into your daily routine. From the relationship between systematic inflammation and depression to the recipe for a low-carb lemon tart; Rhonda’s tips can change your health, and therefor, your life. All that, while you’re lying on the beach or by the pool!
