How To Become A Strong Family, Turning Hard Hikes Into Teachable Moments, Raising Confident And Resilient Children & More With Joe And Mell Hashey

1/27/2024
Ever found yourself pondering the decisions you'd navigate if life orchestrated an unexpected turn and reshaped your family's journey? My guests today, Joe and Mell Hashey, had their lives turned upside down in 2020, forcing them to bid farewell to their cherished "dream home" and embark on a 2,000-mile journey to an unfamiliar town, where they knew no one. This transformative experience became the catalyst for the creation of Strong Family Co. — a versatile framework any family can adopt to establish values and cultivate stress-free family leadership. Joe Hashey earned his Master of Education from Colgate University, where he played football for a few years before four knee surgeries. He went on to become an award-winning high school social studies teacher for eight years and a local youth coach. Mell Hashey is a former social worker turned stay-at-home mom of three. In college, Joe's father passed away due to preventable health issues. Fueled by a passion for promoting health and wellness, Joe launched a local personal training company dedicated to helping busy adults live longer and healthier lives. He has been a prominent leader in his community for 15 years and was honored as the Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Person of the Year in 2018. Realizing he was dedicating more time to his business than to his family, Joe swiftly rebalanced. Now, as a business consultant for companies coast to coast, he applies those lessons to guide the most important organization in his life: his family. Together, the Hasheys penned, Strong Family Guidebook: Your Guide to Raising Confident, Independent, and Resilient Children, a practical guide full of the wisdom that transformed their family into a resilient unit. Joe and Mell emphasize the irreplaceable role parents play in their children's lives, reminding you that amidst career and financial pursuits, parenthood is earned through daily commitment. From organizing family meetings to instilling lasting principles in your children, The Strong Family Guidebook offers an operating system for your family's unique values and dynamics, fostering a resilient family, where individual strengths contribute to the collective magic that binds you together.

Venture back with me to 2013: “Wrecking Ball” is blaring on your radio for the ninetieth time today, skinny jeans have America in a chokehold, and podcasts aren’t considered top-tier entertainment — or not like they are now. That’s because new research compiled by the Pew Research Center shows that a decade ago, a mere 12 percent of Americans ages 12 and up hadn’t listened to a podcast in the last month… Today, in 2023, that number has jumped to an astonishing 42 percent. It's a seismic shift in the sonic landscape — a revolution in how people consume a symphony of stories, insights, and education. As I wrap up this year with 13,630,038 downloads (but who’s counting?), 2023 emerges as a standout year for monumental growth with the global podcast listener count clocking in at a whopping 464.7 million and projections for 2024 suggesting an even more jaw-dropping figure of 504.9 million listeners. Twice a week, for nearly two decades now, I’ve hosted podcasts, including my old podcasts I used to own and run such as Endurance Planet, the Get-Fit Guy, Rock Star Triathlete Academy, Train For Top Dollar, Ben Greenfield Fitness, and many others. Since then, I’ve recorded several THOUSAND episodes of content that are a virtual library (or two) (or three) of in-depth information to empower you to upgrade your lifespan and healthspan; find purpose, happiness, fulfillment, and connection, explore new adventures and challenges; discover how to use cutting-edge strategies to hack your life; and achieve full optimization of mind, body, and spirit, all with boundless energy that equips you to go and conquer every mountain you’ve been called to climb. Crafting this final episode for the year, my team and I wanted to showcase the top podcasts that listeners tuned into the most. Condensed to around an hour and a half, these discussions offer quick highlights, and if you're eager for more, I've linked to the original podcasts for a deeper dive. Happy New Year — and in case you're wondering, here is how to subscribe to my free podcast and where it can be found... ...enter your email address in the pop-up somewhere at the top of this page to receive all emails from me, including podcast episodes, for free.

Alternatives To Alcohol & Plant Medicine, Growth Through Ayahuasca, A Shower Routine That Grows Your Brain, Is Eating Bugs A Mind-Control Experiment & More With Mike Cernovich.

12/23/2023
Embark on an exploration through the multifaceted realms of journalism, literature, and filmmaking as I dive into a compelling discussion with Michael Cernovich, a cultural luminary dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of superior existence. In 2015, Cernovich penned the best-selling book Gorilla Mindset, offering the world invaluable insights on living a better life. He maintains an ongoing exploration of culture and current affairs, and specifically focuses his work on answering the question, "What is on the other side of fear?" His film on media propaganda, Hoaxed, was a top 10 independent film for two weeks in a row and dominated the charts on Apple TV and iTunes in the documentary category. Hoaxed trended as one of the top 10 most streamed films before it was banned from Amazon without explanation. Cernovich was instrumental in bringing the story of Jeffrey Epstein into popular consciousness, as he filed a lawsuit to unseal previously hidden court files in a case involving Epstein. Cernovich has broken dozens of stories of significant interest and obtained files proving a powerful Congressman had settled a sexual harassment lawsuit secretly. As a result of this discovery, the Congressman resigned. He currently writes primarily on Substack, often about parenting, and on Twitter, where he has over a million followers. Some days Cernovich focuses on political subjects, and other times he discusses mental health, fitness, trauma, and the use of plant medicines as well as the demonology and other controversies surrounding Ayahuasca. As part of his philanthropy, Cernovich has contributed and raised money for a veterans charity that focuses on finding solutions for PTSD and drug and alcohol addiction through the use of ibogaine. Cernovich is not just a truth-seeker, philanthropist, and storyteller but also a devoted husband and father of three (who is eagerly anticipating a fourth child).

Biohacking The Brain, Choosing Safe Supplements, Raw Liver, Getting To Sleep Without Medication & More With UFC MMA Fighter Michael Chandler.

12/21/2023
Michael Chandler is not just a force to be reckoned with in the octagon; he's a living embodiment of peak performance, resilience, and an unyielding pursuit of excellence. Chandler's venture into the world of mixed martial arts began in 2009, setting the stage for a career that would redefine the standards of the sport. It wasn't long before his prowess caught the attention of the MMA world, especially during his tenure with Bellator MMA from 2010 to 2020. During this period, he not only claimed the Bellator Lightweight Championship three times but also emerged victorious in the Bellator Season Four Lightweight Tournament, solidifying his status as a dominant force in the lightweight division. In 2020, Chandler made a pivotal transition to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where he continued to showcase his unparalleled skills. As of July 17, 2023, he stands proudly at #5 in the UFC lightweight rankings, a testament to his unwavering commitment to excellence. His next fight will be against Conor McGregor, the Two-Division UFC World Champion and Former Cage Warriors Featherweight and Lightweight Champion. Currently, Chandler is also a coach on ESPN's weekly MMA/UFC show, The Ultimate Fighter. Beyond the realm of professional fighting, Chandler's life is a harmonious blend of family, love, and unshakeable determination. In 2013, he began dating Brie Willett after emailing for almost two years. Subsequently, they got married in 2014. Their family expanded in 2017 with the adoption of their son, Hap, and in April 2022, they welcomed their second adoptive son, Ace, into the world. In this episode, Chandler and I delve into a myriad of topics, ranging from implementing cold thermogenesis techniques for kids, navigating the intricate labyrinth of supplement regulations confronting UFC warriors, strategically stacking supplements, and fortifying cognitive health against potential injuries and Alzheimer's disease.

Eating Healthy At Parties, Hidden Toxins In Your Children's "Health Food," Why Baby Food Has MSG & More With Food Babe Vani Hari.

12/16/2023
How do you feed your family the right way in a world full of crap that could be killing your kids? I can't think of a better person to answer this question than this week's guest, Vani Hari, aka "The Food Babe." She's a revolutionary food activist, a New York Times best-selling author, co-founder of the organic food brand Truvani, and was named one of the “Most Influential People on the Internet” by TIME magazine. She also joined me many years ago for the podcast episode "'The Food Babe' Says They’re Feeding You Lies (How to Unravel the Food Industry’s Playbook and Reclaim Your Health)." Hari started FoodBabe.com to spread information about what is really in the American food supply. She teaches people how to make the right purchasing decisions at the grocery store, how to live an organic lifestyle, and how to travel healthfully around the world. Her new book Food Babe Family inspires you with over 100 recipes and everything you need to feed your family in a way that will foster a love for REAL food for life. The fact is, the multimillion-dollar food industry has used its vast resources to target parents, convincing them that it’s difficult to feed their children good food. But here’s the truth: parenting is difficult, but feeding your children simple, healthy, real food shouldn’t be. In Food Babe Family, Vani dispels popular myths about feeding your kids, offers more than 100 delicious recipes that make it simple to put healthy, real food on the table, and helps parents start children on a lifelong path of making good food choices. From Pumpkin Muffins to Taco Salad Cups, Zucchini Pizza Bites, “Chick-fil-A” Chicken Nuggets and Waffle Fries, and even Homemade “Oreos,” Food Babe Family proves it’s not only possible, but fun to eat real food without artificial dyes, high fructose corn syrup, and other nasty ingredients.

(Part 2) The Most Mind-Blowing Information On Heart Disease You'll Ever Hear: Understanding The Heart (Uncommon Insights Into Our Most Commonly Diseased Organ)

12/14/2023
Welcome to PART 2 of this amazing show about heart health, all based on the book Understanding the Heart: Uncommon Insights Into Our Most Commonly Diseased Organ by Stephen Hussey. As mentioned in several podcasts throughout the year, I've recently come across what I believe to be the best book on cardiovascular health that I've ever read. Before this point, my top book recommendation would have been Dr. Thomas Cowan's Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, ideally paired with a listen to my own big show on all the different ways to test, analyze, and medically quantify your heart health, which you can listen to in the episode titled "The Best Way To Test How Healthy Your Heart Is: Ben Greenfield Undergoes A Complete Advanced Cardiac Evaluation & Reports The Surprising Results!" Anyway, this latest, groundbreaking book — Understanding the Heart: Surprising Insights Into the Evolutionary Origins of Heart Disease―and Why It Matters — is by the remarkable Dr. Stephen Hussey, MS, DC, a chiropractor, functional medicine practitioner, health coach, and speaker. He attained both his Doctorate of Chiropractic and Master of Science in human nutrition and functional medicine from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. In addition to Understanding the Heart, Dr. Hussey is also the author of another excellent book on health and longevity titled The Health Evolution: Why Understanding Evolution Is the Key to Vibrant Health. Through his unique expertise, he guides clients from around the world back to health using ancestral wisdom and the latest research. In his downtime, Dr. Hussey likes to be outdoors, playing sports, reading, writing, and spending time with his wife and their pets. During our show — which is a re-release of one of the most popular podcasts on cardiovascular health that I've ever recorded — you'll learn the fascinating history of heart disease, why the naked mole-rat is important in understanding heart health, where water, infrared light, aspirin, ketones, and other little-known heart health "hacks" fit in, and a BIG surprise toward the end of this two-part podcast series.
