“If you're not inspired by life, you're not paying attention.”IN-QAs we navigate this perilous moment, may we find some sliver of grace. May we embrace beauty. Choose curiosity over rigidity.

Michael Klaper, MD Is Educating The Next Generation of Doctors

“Health comes from healthy living.”Michael Klaper, MDAt the heart of this podcast are evidence-based conversations with leading cliniciansat the intersection of nutrition and functional health.Today we honor this long-standing tradition with one of my favorite medical minds.MeetMichael Klaper, MD.For the past 40 years, Dr. Klaper has distinguished himself as a gifted general practitioner, internationally recognized teacher, and sought-after speaker on diet, health, applied plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine.After receiving his medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago, Dr. Klaper has served in many capacities as a clinician with training in a wide variety of disciplines, including internal medicine, surgery, anesthesiology, orthopedics, obstetrics, and acute care.I became acquainted with Dr. Klaper during his eight-year term at the TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California. A nutrition-based medical clinic specializing in therapeutic fasting and health improvement through a whole-food, plant-based diet, TrueNorth is renowned for successfully navigating people to better well-being through non-intervention lifestyle protocols.In addition,Dr. Klaper served as an advisor to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) project on nutrition for long-term space colonists on the moon and Mars. He was also a member of the Nutrition Task Force of the American Medical Student Association and served as the Director of the non-profit Institute of Nutrition Education and Research.Diet is key to reversing many of the most feared degenerative diseases known to medicine. And yet, applied nutrition is not typically integral to medical school curriculums. To solve this problem, Dr. Klaper partnered with PlantPure Communities to form Moving Medicine Forward, a medical school nutrition education initiative designed to change the way future doctors treat their patients through improved nutrition and lifestyle education. The most important work of his career, Dr. Klaper lectures at medical schools nationwide, educating students on using plant-predominant nutrition and positive lifestyle changes to truly heal their patients -- and ultimately improve the health of future generations.Early in his career, Dr. Klaper realizedthat many of the diseases his patients brought to his office were made worse, or actually caused by the high-fat, high sugar, overly processed Standard American Diet.When he began treating his patients not with pharmaceuticals and surgical interventions but instead with diet and lifestyle protocols -- specificallya whole-food, plant-based diet and active lifestyle -- he started getting unprecedented results.Over time, he observed his patients miraculously reverse a litany of chronicailments, includingatherosclerosis, high blood pressure, hypertension, obesity, adult onset diabetes, and even some forms of arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disease.Today Dr. Klaper shares his wisdom and experience, picking up where we left off in our first podcast conversation,published six years ago to the day (RRP #77).We discuss hismission to help empower the next generation of doctors to better heal their patients.And we explore his dream of eradicating the chronic lifestyle epidemics that unnecessarilyafflict millions of people every single year.The visually inclined can watch it all go down onYouTube.And as always, the audio version streams wild and free onApple PodcastsandSpotify.The most energetic and youthful 72-year old I've ever met, I aspire to this beautiful and gentle man's enthusiasm for life and commitment to service.Note: Taped in late January, today's episode is one of many (14 total) conversations I recorded pre-pandemic. My current intention is to continue releasing such episodes in accordance with my regular schedule. However, I will also be publishing supplemental mid-week episodes to address our current unique situation contemporaneously.I sincerely hope

Taking Care In The Time of Coronavirus

Dan Peres: From Opiod Slave To Sober Salvation

“They were so many things to me, those pills — fuel, an escape, and eventually a necessity — but medication was not one of them.”DAN PERESEvery day, over 130 people in the U.S. die from an opioid overdose.About one quarter of all patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them -- that’s 10.3 million people.And about 80% of people who use heroin first misused prescription opioids.Think about that.A tragic epidemic of untold proportions, opioid addiction has precipitated a massive public health crisis, destroying millions of lives unnecessarily while taxing our economy at the rate of $78.5 billion per year.How did we get here? In the late 1990’s big pharmaceutical companies starting pushing the powerful pills on healthcare providers as panaceas for pain, with the reassurance that patients would not become addicted. Nonetheless, widespread misuse ensued, leading millions of Americans to suffer profound substance abuse disorders -- decimating lives, families and communities along the way.Today I share one man’s journey into the depths of opioid addiction despair -- what happened, what it was like, and how he ultimately found a way out.His name is Dan Peres -- and it’s quite the story.Hardly a born media insider, Dan was an awkward, magic-obsessed adolescent. But his gift for the written word and shrewd eye for culture catapulted him to premature heights in the fast-paced world of glossy magazine publishing. At 24, he was covering catwalks in Paris as the European editor for W magazine. A few short years later he landed the coveted editor gig at Details magazine, the arbiter of all things cool and zeitgeist -- a post he held for 15 years.Along the way Dan nurtured a secret, seeking refuge in opioids to a salve profound imposter syndrome as he navigated the high-voltage netherworld of fashion designers, celebrities and media moguls.Like so many, it’s a relationship that began with a back injury and a prescription. A love affair that escalated to 60 pills a day, betrayal soon followed. A best friend that turned dark. And an addiction that took him places he never thought he would go, produced more instances of incomprehensible demoralization than he cares to remember, anderoded the moral fabric of his life.By a power greater than himself, Dan found a way out. Now 12 years sober, he recollects the vivid details of his experience in As Needed For A Pain -- a harrowing and at times humorous coming-of-age tale that offers a rare glimpse into New York media’s past (a time when print magazines mattered), dissects a life teetering on the edge of destruction, and chronicles what it took to pull back from the brink of an addiction that very nearly killed him.Today Dan shares his powerful tale from depravity to salvation.Even if the opioid epidemic hasn’t affected you directly, chances are someone in your life suffers. May this conversation open your eyes. Help you better understand the cunning, baffling and powerful nature of this disease. And provide hope to those that currently suffer -- because there is a solution.The visually inclined can watch it all go down onYouTube.And as always, the audio version streams wild and free onApple PodcastsandSpotify.If you need help, seek out an A.A. meeting in your area here. Or call theSubstance Abuse And Mental Health Services national helpline at 1-800-662-HELP.Thanks to my friends Amy Dresner(RRP #341) andJeff Gordinier (RRP #453) for introducing me to Dan. And thank you to Dan for being so open and vulnerable. This conversation is a doozie. I'm better for having it. May it impact you similarly.Peace + Plants,Episode SponsorsNavitas Organics:The highest-quality and most powerful plants, berries, roots, nuts and seeds the earth has to offer from great people on a great planetary mission.

Lessons Learned & Empathy Earned: The Story Behind The Story

“When the heart is true, the Universe will conspire to support you.”Rich RollNow for something a little bit different.What it was like. What happened. And what it's like now.Moments shared. Lessons learned. And the growth that remains.For those new to me, 13 years ago found me utterly disconnected from my higher self. After many years lost in the throes of alcohol, I had managed the sober road to happy destiny for nearly a decade. And yet, on the cusp of turning 40, I awoke to find myself in an existential crisis. Stuck in a career that never served me. Unhealthy. Overweight. And totally blind to the path forward.Through a grace more powerful than myself, I found a way out. It's a journey that began with nutrition. Evolved through fitness. Matured through service. And ultimately has taken me to heights I previously thought unimaginable. It could be said thatI reinvented myself wholesale. And transformed others' lives in the process.Along the way, I've experienced success and failu...

Mel Urie On Conquering The Impossible: How To Live A 'No Excuse' Life

“The only limits to human capability are those we impose on ourselves.”Mel UrieOver the last few months, I've had the privilege of hosting conversations with an impressive litany ofpowerhouse women breaking paradigms across a wide swath of disciplines.Mel Uriehas more than earned her spot amongst thesepowerful boundary crushers. And I for one am here to celebrate her.Devoted listeners will recall Mel’s first appearance on the show (along with fellow endurancefiend Danielle Grabol) a little over a year ago (RRP 421) wherein these two badass athletes discussed becomingthe first two females to ever complete EPIC5— a race I helped pioneer that involvescompleting 5 Ironmans on the 5 Hawaiian Islands in just 5 days.But then Mel had to go and just completely outdo herself (and embarrass the rest of us) by becoming the first female to not only attempt but to actually complete the fatally absurd ultra-endurance fever dream known asUberman-- a 556-mile self-supported freak festOutsidemaga...

Sadie Lincoln Is Rewriting The Fitness Story -- Thoughts On Movement, Community, Risk & Vulnerability

“Numbers don’t mean anything when it comes to success.”Sadie LincolnThe alarm goes off and from that moment forward, life is a harried rush. Commuting, coffee, e-mails, meetings and take out. Getting Jenny to soccer practice and Billy back from theatre. When you finally land home, you're too beat to move. So you crash on the couch and doze off with a pint. Rinse and repeat.We all do the best we can.But the pressures of daily life can leave us stressed and exhausted. Sedentary and stiff, our shoulders slump. Our spine rounds and our stance is lopsided. Without corrective action, we can't function properly. And everything we do -- including exercise -- only exacerbates the problem.Let's just saySadie Lincolncan relate.When her career with a global fitness brand almost broke her, she knew something had to change.Sadie and her husband Chris quit their jobs and downsized their lives to pursue an idea most said was bat shit crazy.Hence was bornbarre3,a fitness company focused not on we...

E“Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.”John Joseph500 EPISODES.Over seven years ago, I sat down in a damp and echo-y warehouse on the north shore of Kauai and hit record for the very first time.There was no agenda. No commitment to even record a second episode. And certainly zero idea that what began as a fun experiment would evolve into both a passion and a vocation.And yet here we are. Without fail, beginning in late 2012, I have uploaded at least one episode every single week, amassing over 1000 hours of conversation and a global audience that downloads this show more than 3 million times a month — in total, over 70 million streams and counting.The numbers are great, but they fail to capture what is truly meaningful: the opportunity to go deep and unfiltered with some of the most amazing people currently walking planet Earth; and in turn share their incredible wisdom with all of you.Today I give thanks for taking this journey with me -- a calling and a service I ...

Taking Care In The Time of Coronavirus

“Restriction kindles creativity; and crisis the opportunity for growth.”Rich RollA diversion from my typical format, today I sit down with my wife Julie Piatt to discuss the coronavirus pandemic.For those unfamiliar, Julie is an accomplished yogi, healer, musician, and mom to our four children. She is the author of three bestselling vegan cookbooks and hosts both the For The Life of Me podcast and Water Tiger, her online spiritual community. In addition, she is the founder and ‘Mother Arc’ of SriMu,her recently launched plant-based cheese start-up.This is a conversation about exercising care and self-care as we delicately wade through these most unprecedented waters.It's about replacing fear, anxiety and uncertainty with acceptance. Surrender. Creativity. Faith. And self-inquiry.It's about navigating calamity with grace. Finding the opportunity in crisis.It's about leaning into what is to reflect more deeply on our lives. And mindful response over reflexive reaction.And finally, it's about seizing sequestration to contemplate a better path forward for ourselves, future generations, and the planet.Without minimizing the severity of what is and what is to come, may we come together now -- in this virtual space -- to grow.Because we’re in this together. And together we are stronger.As always, subscribe and listen on Apple PodcastsandSpotify.May you find comfort in this exchange.Peace + Plants,Episode SponsorsTheragun:To experience the deep muscle massager that’s unlike anything you’ve ever felt — risk-free for 30 days or your money back— visittheragun.com/richroll.For a limited time, my listeners can get a FREE charging stand with purchase — a $79 dollar value.Gravity Blankets:The top-rated weighted blanket, this product literally changed my life — helping me fall asleep faster and keep me asleep longer.

Taking Care In The Time of Coronavirus

Dan Peres: From Opiod Slave To Sober Salvation

“They were so many things to me, those pills — fuel, an escape, and eventually a necessity — but medication was not one of them.”DAN PERESEvery day, over 130 people in the U.S. die from an opioid overdose.About one quarter of all patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them -- that’s 10.3 million people.And about 80% of people who use heroin first misused prescription opioids.Think about that.A tragic epidemic of untold proportions, opioid addiction has precipitated a massive public health crisis, destroying millions of lives unnecessarily while taxing our economy at the rate of $78.5 billion per year.How did we get here? In the late 1990’s big pharmaceutical companies starting pushing the powerful pills on healthcare providers as panaceas for pain, with the reassurance that patients would not become addicted. Nonetheless, widespread misuse ensued, leading millions of Americans to suffer profound substance abuse disorders -- decimating lives, families and communities along the way.Today I share one man’s journey into the depths of opioid addiction despair -- what happened, what it was like, and how he ultimately found a way out.His name is Dan Peres -- and it’s quite the story.Hardly a born media insider, Dan was an awkward, magic-obsessed adolescent. But his gift for the written word and shrewd eye for culture catapulted him to premature heights in the fast-paced world of glossy magazine publishing. At 24, he was covering catwalks in Paris as the European editor for W magazine. A few short years later he landed the coveted editor gig at Details magazine, the arbiter of all things cool and zeitgeist -- a post he held for 15 years.Along the way Dan nurtured a secret, seeking refuge in opioids to a salve profound imposter syndrome as he navigated the high-voltage netherworld of fashion designers, celebrities and media moguls.Like so many, it’s a relationship that began with a back injury and a prescription. A love affair that escalated to 60 pills a day, betrayal soon followed. A best friend that turned dark. And an addiction that took him places he never thought he would go, produced more instances of incomprehensible demoralization than he cares to remember, anderoded the moral fabric of his life.By a power greater than himself, Dan found a way out. Now 12 years sober, he recollects the vivid details of his experience in As Needed For A Pain -- a harrowing and at times humorous coming-of-age tale that offers a rare glimpse into New York media’s past (a time when print magazines mattered), dissects a life teetering on the edge of destruction, and chronicles what it took to pull back from the brink of an addiction that very nearly killed him.Today Dan shares his powerful tale from depravity to salvation.Even if the opioid epidemic hasn’t affected you directly, chances are someone in your life suffers. May this conversation open your eyes. Help you better understand the cunning, baffling and powerful nature of this disease. And provide hope to those that currently suffer -- because there is a solution.The visually inclined can watch it all go down onYouTube.And as always, the audio version streams wild and free onApple PodcastsandSpotify.If you need help, seek out an A.A. meeting in your area here. Or call theSubstance Abuse And Mental Health Services national helpline at 1-800-662-HELP.Thanks to my friends Amy Dresner(RRP #341) andJeff Gordinier (RRP #453) for introducing me to Dan. And thank you to Dan for being so open and vulnerable. This conversation is a doozie. I'm better for having it.

Lessons Learned & Empathy Earned: The Story Behind The Story

“When the heart is true, the Universe will conspire to support you.”Rich RollNow for something a little bit different.What it was like. What happened. And what it's like now.Moments shared. Lessons learned. And the growth that remains.For those new to me, 13 years ago found me utterly disconnected from my higher self. After many years lost in the throes of alcohol, I had managed the sober road to happy destiny for nearly a decade. And yet, on the cusp of turning 40, I awoke to find myself in an existential crisis. Stuck in a career that never served me. Unhealthy. Overweight. And totally blind to the path forward.Through a grace more powerful than myself, I found a way out. It's a journey that began with nutrition. Evolved through fitness. Matured through service. And ultimately has taken me to heights I previously thought unimaginable. It could be said thatI reinvented myself wholesale. And transformed others' lives in the process.Along the way, I've experienced success and failu...

Mel Urie On Conquering The Impossible: How To Live A 'No Excuse' Life

“The only limits to human capability are those we impose on ourselves.”Mel UrieOver the last few months, I've had the privilege of hosting conversations with an impressive litany ofpowerhouse women breaking paradigms across a wide swath of disciplines.Mel Uriehas more than earned her spot amongst thesepowerful boundary crushers. And I for one am here to celebrate her.Devoted listeners will recall Mel’s first appearance on the show (along with fellow endurancefiend Danielle Grabol) a little over a year ago (RRP 421) wherein these two badass athletes discussed becomingthe first two females to ever complete EPIC5— a race I helped pioneer that involvescompleting 5 Ironmans on the 5 Hawaiian Islands in just 5 days.But then Mel had to go and just completely outdo herself (and embarrass the rest of us) by becoming the first female to not only attempt but to actually complete the fatally absurd ultra-endurance fever dream known asUberman-- a 556-mile self-supported freak festOutsidemaga...

Sadie Lincoln Is Rewriting The Fitness Story -- Thoughts On Movement, Community, Risk & Vulnerability

“Numbers don’t mean anything when it comes to success.”Sadie LincolnThe alarm goes off and from that moment forward, life is a harried rush. Commuting, coffee, e-mails, meetings and take out. Getting Jenny to soccer practice and Billy back from theatre. When you finally land home, you're too beat to move. So you crash on the couch and doze off with a pint. Rinse and repeat.We all do the best we can.But the pressures of daily life can leave us stressed and exhausted. Sedentary and stiff, our shoulders slump. Our spine rounds and our stance is lopsided. Without corrective action, we can't function properly. And everything we do -- including exercise -- only exacerbates the problem.Let's just saySadie Lincolncan relate.When her career with a global fitness brand almost broke her, she knew something had to change.Sadie and her husband Chris quit their jobs and downsized their lives to pursue an idea most said was bat shit crazy.Hence was bornbarre3,a fitness company focused not on we...

John Joseph & Mishka Shubaly Are My Reservoir Dogs

E“Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.”John Joseph500 EPISODES.Over seven years ago, I sat down in a damp and echo-y warehouse on the north shore of Kauai and hit record for the very first time.There was no agenda. No commitment to even record a second episode. And certainly zero idea that what began as a fun experiment would evolve into both a passion and a vocation.And yet here we are. Without fail, beginning in late 2012, I have uploaded at least one episode every single week, amassing over 1000 hours of conversation and a global audience that downloads this show more than 3 million times a month — in total, over 70 million streams and counting.The numbers are great, but they fail to capture what is truly meaningful: the opportunity to go deep and unfiltered with some of the most amazing people currently walking planet Earth; and in turn share their incredible wisdom with all of you.Today I give thanks for taking this journey with me -- a calling and a service I ...
