This episode is brought to you by Athletic Greens. I get asked all the time, “If you could use only one supplement, what would it be?” My answer is usually AG1 by Athletic Greens, my all-in-one nutritional insurance. I recommended it in The 4-Hour Body in 2010 and did not get paid to do so. I do my best with nutrient-dense meals, of course, but AG further covers my bases with vitamins, minerals, and whole-food-sourced micronutrients that support gut health and the immune system.

Want to hear another Random ShowListen to my last conversation with Kevin Rose in which we discussed stupid frugality, the demonization of masculinity, FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) in the NFT world, the challenges of serving a massive audience on a reasonable budget, how to get a foundational understanding of the way blockchains work, conference anti-mingling tactics, and much more.
