About Us

In the Darin Olien Show, each episode is packed with honest, inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same - to save the planet one conversation at a time. We’ll talk about how to fuel your body, boost your immune system and even sustain yourself on a plant-based lifestyle. We present tangible tips, tricks and methods to get you feeling your best and living your best life. My mission is to stop you from falling into society’s fatal conveniences- the things we do that we’re indoctrinated into thinking we have to, even though those very things are negatively affecting us, and in some cases, slowly destroying and killing us.

#31 Fatal Conveniences: Shoes: Free The Feet

EDid you know that each foot contains 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? So, this insanely complex anatomical structure accounts for almost 25% of the bones and joints in your entire body. Not to mention the 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot alone! So why do we insist on condemning these incredible sensory powerhouses to a life of padding and cushioning? Guys, it's time we talked about shoes. Welcome toFatal Conveniences This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Strutting Your Stuff Shoeless Is The Way To Go! Once again, it turns out that even after thousands of years of evolution, Mother Nature still makes the best footwear. But we seem to have forgotten that. When we wear shoes consistently, what we're doing is reversing this marvel of engineering. Sadly, our love of fashionable footwear has drastically desensitized our feet and changed the way we walk. Therefore, over time, they have even altered the human gait. For the last 15 years or so, I've spent about 90% of my time totally shoe-less. Now, bear with me; I haven't gone completely bananas just yet. But, by ditching the kicks, you'll be rewarded with some pretty amazing health benefits. In this Fatal Conveniences, I break down the importance of letting your feet breathe. I also look at our feet and how getting a bit more grounded can work its magic across your whole body. I also explore why shoes change the way we walk and the things you can do to retrain your feet to be free. Other topics in this segment: Why we're getting too much cushion for comfort Why we should build up our foot's sensitivity to the earth The research and studies that bring more light to foot health Weakness, stiffness, and flat feet- Oh my! How you can reconnect with your feet (and nature) The best brands for keeping your feet happy Why bad foot care affects you from head to toe Other Great Resources To Dive Into: TIME Magazine: The Healthiest Shoes To Wear- According To Science Study:Foot strength and stiffness – Shoed Vs.

#30 Steven Sashen on Running Barefoot

E25% of the bones and joints in your entire body are located in your feet and ankles. Also, you have over 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot. So why are we covering up these sensory powerhouses with padding and cushioning? Walking around or even running barefoot, or with footwear designed to let the feet be feet, can improve our overall physical health in ways we never imagined. WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Steven Sashen dives into things feet first. In fact, it’s his company motto. Xero Shoes was built out of a need for Steven to free his feet. After picking up sprinting again following a 30 year hiatus, Steven would injure himself constantly. Every couple of weeks would bring another pulled muscle or ankle strain. When a friend suggested a barefoot run, everything changed. After his first run with a barefoot running group, Steven was awakened with a new awareness of how his feet interacted with the ground. He ran 5K on that very first go around and was shocked at how easy it felt on his body. He was even able to pinpoint a reason for why he was injuring one leg more than the other. All this knowledge was too empowering to ignore, and Xero Shoes was born. In this conversation, Steven and I get into how incredibly powerful and intuitive our feet really are. We explore the foot to brain connection and how the modern day athletic shoe is counterproductive to the way we physically interact with the ground under our feet. Steven gives us the origin story of Xero Shoes, which gives you an understanding of why I refer to him as a “Master of Movement”. So kick off your shoes, and take a listen to this one, guys! Other topics in this episode: Steven’s history with movement How to recognize “Big Shoe” propaganda How Steven’s research background at Duke helped fuel Xero Shoes The lies we’ve been fed about our feet How watching a child run barefoot can give you better idea of how the body is supposed to work The truth about your arch The copycat nature of the athletic shoe industry Dr. Irene Davis and her contribution to barefoot running Balance and the elderly How tricking your brain can keep you young Steven and Lena’s Shark Tank experience with Mr.Wonderful Links & Resources: Steven’s Website Xero Shoes Steven on LinkedIn Steven on Twitter Xero Shoes on Instagram Dr. Irene Davis Barefoot Running by Michael Sandler The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From The Frontiers of Brain Science Born to Run by Christopher McDougall Watch Steven and Lena on Shark Tank Netflix’ Down To Earth’ Official Trailer Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN” The Darin Olien Showis produced by the team atMust Amplify.If you’re looking to give a voice to your brand, and make sure that it’s heard by the right people, head towww.mustamplify.com/darinto see what Amplify can do for you.

#29 Fatal Conveniences: Bug Spray: Fight the Bite

We’re outnumbered, folks! The estimated number of insects to humans is 200 million to one. This is a battle we will most definitely lose. Yet, we try in vain. In this hive of insect activity, repellents can help you steer clear of nasty stings and bites. But is our reliance on bug sprays harming our health? Welcome toFatal Conveniences This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Mosquitos are a pest! Every year, a third of us will cover ourselves with almost five pounds of bug repellent to keep those blood-thirsty bugs at bay. Okay, so there is a good reason to do so. After all, there are many mosquito and tick-transmitted diseases to ward-off; West Nile virus, malaria, and Lyme Disease, to name a couple. So, I'm not here to tell you that protecting yourself from bites isn't important. But, if the repellent you're using can fend off mosquitoes, maybe what it's doing to you isn't so great either. In this Fatal Conveniences, I break down the most common toxic chemicals that lurk in insect repellents, such as DEET (N, N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide), which is the granddaddy of them all. I also break down how these repellents affect children, and the simple things you can do today to keep insects away without sacrificing your health. Bugs, insects, Insecta or insectum- whatever you call our hexapod invertebrates, these creepy critters are vital for our ecosystems. So, finding non-harmful, preventative alternatives is crucial for the survival of not only us as a species, but also this incredible planet that we live on.

#28 Dr. Andrew Huberman on The Soothing Science Behind Breathwork

EDo you want to reduce stress, get better sleep, experience less anxiety, and have more emotional control? More and more research is showing that deep breathing exercises can help. If you’re constantly feeling off-balance, using daily breathwork practices might be the answer. So, let's take a deep, cleansing breath and dive right into it. WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Dr. Andrew Huberman Tries to Find the Small Connecting Pieces to Life’s Biggest Puzzles Since he can remember, Andrew has had a fascination with animals and biology. In particular, their shapes, how they move, and their unique specializations. As a kid, he would read countless animal encyclopedias. He would try to figure out where we, as animals, fit into this world. Today, Andrew is an absolute powerhouse in neurological research. He is a neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He is the founder of the Huberman Lab, where he's involved in tons of breakthrough research on brain function, brain plasticity (the brain's ability to change as a result of experiences), and brain regeneration. In his life-long quest to relieve suffering, The Huberman Lab focuses a lot on the visual system. Dr. Huberman’s team is currently studying how virtual reality can get rid of fear and anxiety and preserve sight in glaucoma patients. In fact, these insane experiments resulted in Andrew diving with great white sharks and climbing mountains without ropes or harnesses- all in the name of science, of course. In addition, his work in the Huberman Lab at Stanford has been heavily featured in Science, Discover, Scientific American, Time, and the New York Times. In 2013, Andrew received the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award and the Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts due to his research. Then, in 2017, Andrew also won the ARVO Cogan Award. Primarily because of his contributions to vision science. In this episode, Andrew and I talk about why stress is actually good for your immune system. Also, we dive into the immense stress-relieving power behind breathwork and how your eyeballs are just another part of your brain. This totally fascinating episode gets right to the heart of proper breathing practices and how this simple act can positively impact your state of mind. Guys, this is not one to be missed! Other topics in this episode: Andrew's scientific roots From college dropout to world-renowned neuroscientist The ethics of neuroscience Hollywood photographers, great white sharks, and underwater brain scans The light and dark side of Artificial Intelligence in Science Learning to be calm in an elevated state The benefits of deep breathing and breathwork The simple steps towards proper breathing techniques Why stress doesn't lower your immunity Our cells and carbon dioxide More Great Resources and Information: The Huberman Lab's Website:hubermanlab.com Andrew on Instagram- @hubermanlab Andrew on LinkedIn Andrew on Wikipedia Huberman Lab Publications New In Health: Dr. Andrew Huberman on Virtual Reality Research Joe Rogan Experience #1513 - Andrew Huberman The Rich Roll Podcast - Change Your Brain: Neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Huberman Netflix’ Down To Earth’ Official Trailer Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN” The Darin Olien Showis produced by the team atMust Amplify.If you’re lo

#27 Fatal Conveniences: Sunscreen: Counterproductive Chemicals

The sun is so incredibly vital to our health. When our skin is exposed to sunlight, it begins to manufacture its own vitamin D. Vitamin D production is crucial to many body functions like calcium absorption, maintaining healthy bones and boosting the immune system. So why are we slathering on chemicals to block the sun rays? Welcome toFatal Conveniences. This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences."

So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Human beings need sunlight. I know many of you are probably thinking “But Darin, what about sunburn? What about skin cancer?” And those are valid concerns. I go into depth on both of these subjects in this segment. But my point is this: when you apply sunscreen to your skin, you are absorbing dangerous chemicals directly into your bloodstream. If cancer is what you’re trying to avoid, you’ll be sorely disappointed to learn that the very chemicals you think are protecting you are actually increasing your chances for many different kinds of cancer. In this segment, I identify the four common toxins found in most sunscreens. I explain what they do to your body and why you should avoid them at all costs. I also get into the delusion we’ve all been fed our entire lives about the sun being dangerous. We need the sun! Don’t get me wrong, we need to use common sense. If you have a history of skin cancer if your family, then by all means, look for ways to protect yourself. But using chemicals is not the answer. If you need to use sunscreen, I go over what to avoid and what to use instead.

Did you know that 92% of the average American’s life is spent indoors? If that doesn’t bum you out, I don’t know what will. We are creatures of light. The sun directly fuels us and gives us energy.

#25 Fatal Conveniences: Conditioner: Smooth & Silky, At What Cost?

EAdvertising will have us believe that hair isn’t attractive unless it’s smooth and silky. And you can’t get smooth and silky hair unless you use products packed with harmful toxins. Not true! You can use conditioner on your hair. You just need to know what to look out for. Welcome toFatal Conveniences. This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show.

You can get silky smooth hair without sacrificing your health. Did you know that the FDA does not require companies to provide the exact ingredients in their shampoos or conditioners? The FD&C Act allows companies to release beauty products onto the market without reviewing its ingredients. Nobody is looking into this stuff, guys. They can get away with throwing in all sorts of harmful chemicals into these bottles of product and no one is aware. Parabens, sulfates, chemical fragrances- they’re all in there. And they’re wreaking havoc on your body’s delicate systems. I don’t use shampoos and conditioners daily, but I do use them. I have longer hair and I like it to look nice. So, yes, I use conditioner. But I’m aware of the dangerous toxins that some companies sneak into their products. I’m here to educate you so you can be aware also. Then you can seek out responsible, compassionate companies that use real natural botanicals and ingredients instead of chemicals.

#24 Ben Greenfield on Engaging in Future Thinking

EYour story is not just about you. The actions you are taking today can impact the people of tomorrow. When it comes to future generations' health and well-being, we need to decode some of our negative behaviors and provide our kids with a richer way of living. WELCOME TOTHEDARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they’ll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Ben Greenfield is a world-renowned biohacker. And probably one of the healthiest people on the planet! But that wasn’t always the case. Before his health journey, he lived off hotdogs dipped in peanut butter, pizza and cheap beef burgers. Despite that, to look at him now, that is all a very distant memory. He’s currently a body and brain performance coach and author of 14 books. This includes the New York Times Bestseller, Beyond Training. He’s a speaker, host of one of the world’s first fitness podcasts Ben Greenfield Fitness, and CEO of Ben Greenfield Fitness and Kion. In 2013 and 2014, Ben became one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness. As 2015 rolled in, Ben was coaching some of the world’s leading CEO’s, chefs, biohackers, endurance competitors, and professional athletes. Meanwhile, Ben’s quest for ultimate fitness and health never ends. As part of his pursuit of becoming the next real-life superman, he willingly tests and experiments biohacking techniques on his body. If you look at the results, it's insane. For instance, as he celebrated his 37th birthday, his biological age was sitting at an impressive 20. This is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his accolades and achievements. In this conversation, we talk about how your current health habits could be harming future generations and the ways you can reverse it. Also, Ben describes his eclectic childhood and how his health-conscious, home-schooled kids are learning through doing. To top it off, he tells us the ultimate morning ritual that sets you up for life. Ben is a genius when it comes to optimizing our health, and I’m so excited for you to get an insight into how his mind works.

#22 Dr. Joel Fuhrman on The Nutritarian Diet and How it Can Save Us All

EYou hear me talk about it a lot. What we eat has a huge impact on our health and the health of the environment. What if I told you that nutrition is even more powerful than any of us are led to believe? By eating a Nutritarian Diet, you can protect yourself against heart disease, diabetes, cancer and even dementia. We’ve always had all the answers, and now it’s time to use them. WELCOME TO THEDARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Dr. Joel Fuhrman knows more about nutrition than anyone I’ve ever met. In fact, he’s written 13 books on the subject. Seven of those have become New York Times bestsellers, including Eat to Live and his latest, Eat for Life. From a young age, Dr. Fuhrman was obsessed with healthy food. Growing up in Yonkers, NY, he would spend hours reading books with his father about the science of nutrients. His healthy eating style gave him an edge as a teenage athlete. In 1976, he placed 3rd in the world for pairs figure skating. These unique credentials gave him authenticity while advising Olympic athletes on nutrition years later. Today, Dr. Fuhrman is a champion for the “Nutritarian Diet,” a phrase he coined himself. This health-driven way of eating focuses on a diet full of nutrient-dense whole foods. He’s a firm believer in the dangers of the standard American diet. Processed foods, sugars, and chemicals are slowly killing us, and the doctor has proof. Throughout his 35+ year career, he has seen the healing power of the Nutritarian Diet. Patients suffering from kidney failure, heart disease, morbid obesity, and even cancer- all healed by completely overhauling their eating habits. In this conversation, Dr.Fuhrman breaks down why nutrient-rich foods are essential for preventing disease. He gives us some frightening US health statistics that even I wasn’t aware of.

#31 Fatal Conveniences: Shoes: Free The Feet

EDid you know that each foot contains 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? So, this insanely complex anatomical structure accounts for almost 25% of the bones and joints in your entire body. Not to mention the 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot alone! So why do we insist on condemning these incredible sensory powerhouses to a life of padding and cushioning? Guys, it's time we talked about shoes. Welcome toFatal Conveniences This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Strutting Your Stuff Shoeless Is The Way To Go! Once again, it turns out that even after thousands of years of evolution, Mother Nature still makes the best footwear. But we seem to have forgotten that. When we wear shoes consistently, what we're doing is reversing this marvel of engineering. Sadly, our love of fashionable footwear has drastically desensitized our feet and changed the way we walk. Therefore, over time, they have even altered the human gait. For the last 15 years or so, I've spent about 90% of my time totally shoe-less. Now, bear with me; I haven't gone completely bananas just yet. But, by ditching the kicks, you'll be rewarded with some pretty amazing health benefits. In this Fatal Conveniences, I break down the importance of letting your feet breathe. I also look at our feet and how getting a bit more grounded can work its magic across your whole body. I also explore why shoes change the way we walk and the things you can do to retrain your feet to be free. Other topics in this segment: Why we're getting too much cushion for comfort Why we should build up our foot's sensitivity to the earth The research and studies that bring more light to foot health Weakness, stiffness, and flat feet- Oh my! How you can reconnect with your feet (and nature) The best brands for keeping your feet happy Why bad foot care affects you from head to toe Other Great Resources To Dive Into: TIME Magazine: The Healthiest Shoes To Wear- According To Science Study:Foot strength and stiffness – Shoed Vs.

#30 Steven Sashen on Running Barefoot

E25% of the bones and joints in your entire body are located in your feet and ankles. Also, you have over 200,000 nerve endings on the sole of each foot. So why are we covering up these sensory powerhouses with padding and cushioning? Walking around or even running barefoot, or with footwear designed to let the feet be feet, can improve our overall physical health in ways we never imagined. WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Steven Sashen dives into things feet first. In fact, it’s his company motto. Xero Shoes was built out of a need for Steven to free his feet. After picking up sprinting again following a 30 year hiatus, Steven would injure himself constantly. Every couple of weeks would bring another pulled muscle or ankle strain. When a friend suggested a barefoot run, everything changed. After his first run with a barefoot running group, Steven was awakened with a new awareness of how his feet interacted with the ground. He ran 5K on that very first go around and was shocked at how easy it felt on his body. He was even able to pinpoint a reason for why he was injuring one leg more than the other. All this knowledge was too empowering to ignore, and Xero Shoes was born. In this conversation, Steven and I get into how incredibly powerful and intuitive our feet really are. We explore the foot to brain connection and how the modern day athletic shoe is counterproductive to the way we physically interact with the ground under our feet. Steven gives us the origin story of Xero Shoes, which gives you an understanding of why I refer to him as a “Master of Movement”. So kick off your shoes, and take a listen to this one, guys! Other topics in this episode: Steven’s history with movement How to recognize “Big Shoe” propaganda How Steven’s research background at Duke helped fuel Xero Shoes The lies we’ve been fed about our feet How watching a child run barefoot can give you better idea of how the body is supposed to work The truth about your arch The copycat nature of the athletic shoe industry Dr. Irene Davis and her contribution to barefoot running Balance and the elderly How tricking your brain can keep you young Steven and Lena’s Shark Tank experience with Mr.Wonderful Links & Resources: Steven’s Website Xero Shoes Steven on LinkedIn Steven on Twitter Xero Shoes on Instagram Dr. Irene Davis Barefoot Running by Michael Sandler The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From The Frontiers of Brain Science Born to Run by Christopher McDougall Watch Steven and Lena on Shark Tank Netflix’ Down To Earth’ Official Trailer Download Darin’s amazing new lifestyle app and get 3 days free at121Tribe.com Barukas Nuts 15% discount with code “DARIN” The Darin Olien Showis produced by the team atMust Amplify.If you’re looking to give a voice to your brand, and make sure that it’s heard by the right people, head towww.mustamplify.com/darinto see what Amplify can do for you.

#29 Fatal Conveniences: Bug Spray: Fight the Bite

We’re outnumbered, folks! The estimated number of insects to humans is 200 million to one. This is a battle we will most definitely lose. Yet, we try in vain. In this hive of insect activity, repellents can help you steer clear of nasty stings and bites. But is our reliance on bug sprays harming our health? Welcome toFatal Conveniences This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences."

So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Mosquitos are a pest! Every year, a third of us will cover ourselves with almost five pounds of bug repellent to keep those blood-thirsty bugs at bay. Okay, so there is a good reason to do so. After all, there are many mosquito and tick-transmitted diseases to ward-off; West Nile virus, malaria, and Lyme Disease, to name a couple. So, I'm not here to tell you that protecting yourself from bites isn't important. But, if the repellent you're using can fend off mosquitoes, maybe what it's doing to you isn't so great either. In this Fatal Conveniences, I break down the most common toxic chemicals that lurk in insect repellents, such as DEET (N, N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide), which is the granddaddy of them all. I also break down how these repellents affect children, and the simple things you can do today to keep insects away without sacrificing your health. Bugs, insects, Insecta or insectum- whatever you call our hexapod invertebrates, these creepy critters are vital for our ecosystems. So, finding non-harmful, preventative alternatives is crucial for the survival of not only us as a species, but also this incredible planet that we live on.

#28 Dr. Andrew Huberman on The Soothing Science Behind Breathwork

EDo you want to reduce stress, get better sleep, experience less anxiety, and have more emotional control? More and more research is showing that deep breathing exercises can help. If you’re constantly feeling off-balance, using daily breathwork practices might be the answer. So, let's take a deep, cleansing breath and dive right into it. WELCOME TO THE DARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. So, if you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Dr. Andrew Huberman Tries to Find the Small Connecting Pieces to Life’s Biggest Puzzles Since he can remember, Andrew has had a fascination with animals and biology. In particular, their shapes, how they move, and their unique specializations. As a kid, he would read countless animal encyclopedias. He would try to figure out where we, as animals, fit into this world. Today, Andrew is an absolute powerhouse in neurological research. He is a neuroscientist and tenured professor in the Department of Neurobiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. He is the founder of the Huberman Lab, where he's involved in tons of breakthrough research on brain function, brain plasticity (the brain's ability to change as a result of experiences), and brain regeneration. In his life-long quest to relieve suffering, The Huberman Lab focuses a lot on the visual system. Dr. Huberman’s team is currently studying how virtual reality can get rid of fear and anxiety and preserve sight in glaucoma patients. In fact, these insane experiments resulted in Andrew diving with great white sharks and climbing mountains without ropes or harnesses- all in the name of science, of course. In addition, his work in the Huberman Lab at Stanford has been heavily featured in Science, Discover, Scientific American, Time, and the New York Times. In 2013, Andrew received the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award and the Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts due to his research. Then, in 2017, Andrew also won the ARVO Cogan Award. Primarily because of his contributions to vision science. In this episode, Andrew and I talk about why stress is actually good for your immune system. Also, we dive into the immense stress-relieving power behind breathwork and how your eyeballs are just another part of your brain. This totally fascinating episode gets right to the heart of proper breathing practices and how this simple act can positively impact your state of mind. Guys, this is not one to be missed!

#27 Fatal Conveniences: Sunscreen: Counterproductive Chemicals

The sun is so incredibly vital to our health. When our skin is exposed to sunlight, it begins to manufacture its own vitamin D. Vitamin D production is crucial to many body functions like calcium absorption, maintaining healthy bones and boosting the immune system. So why are we slathering on chemicals to block the sun rays? Welcome toFatal Conveniences. This is a bite-sized segment that parallelsThe Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences."

So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Human beings need sunlight. I know many of you are probably thinking “But Darin, what about sunburn? What about skin cancer?” And those are valid concerns. I go into depth on both of these subjects in this segment. But my point is this: when you apply sunscreen to your skin, you are absorbing dangerous chemicals directly into your bloodstream. If cancer is what you’re trying to avoid, you’ll be sorely disappointed to learn that the very chemicals you think are protecting you are actually increasing your chances for many different kinds of cancer. In this segment, I identify the four common toxins found in most sunscreens. I explain what they do to your body and why you should avoid them at all costs. I also get into the delusion we’ve all been fed our entire lives about the sun being dangerous. We need the sun! Don’t get me wrong, we need to use common sense. If you have a history of skin cancer if your family, then by all means, look for ways to protect yourself. But using chemicals is not the answer. If you need to use sunscreen, I go over what to avoid and what to use instead.

You can get silky smooth hair without sacrificing your health. Did you know that the FDA does not require companies to provide the exact ingredients in their shampoos or conditioners? The FD&C Act allows companies to release beauty products onto the market without reviewing its ingredients. Nobody is looking into this stuff, guys. They can get away with throwing in all sorts of harmful chemicals into these bottles of product and no one is aware. Parabens, sulfates, chemical fragrances- they’re all in there. And they’re wreaking havoc on your body’s delicate systems. I don’t use shampoos and conditioners daily, but I do use them. I have longer hair and I like it to look nice. So, yes, I use conditioner.

EYour story is not just about you. The actions you are taking today can impact the people of tomorrow. When it comes to future generations' health and well-being, we need to decode some of our negative behaviors and provide our kids with a richer way of living. WELCOME TOTHEDARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me.

If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Ben Greenfield is a world-renowned biohacker. And probably one of the healthiest people on the planet! But that wasn’t always the case. Before his health journey, he lived off hotdogs dipped in peanut butter, pizza and cheap beef burgers. Despite that, to look at him now, that is all a very distant memory. He’s currently a body and brain performance coach and author of 14 books. This includes the New York Times Bestseller, Beyond Training. He’s a speaker, host of one of the world’s first fitness podcasts Ben Greenfield Fitness, and CEO of Ben Greenfield Fitness and Kion. In 2013 and 2014, Ben became one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness. As 2015 rolled in, Ben was coaching some of the world’s leading CEO’s, chefs, biohackers, endurance competitors, and professional athletes. Meanwhile, Ben’s quest for ultimate fitness and health never ends. As part of his pursuit of becoming the next real-life superman, he willingly tests and experiments biohacking techniques on his body. If you look at the results, it's insane. For instance, as he celebrated his 37th birthday, his biological age was sitting at an impressive 20. This is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his accolades and achievements. In this conversation, we talk about how your current health habits could be harming future generations and the ways you can reverse it. Also, Ben describes his eclectic childhood and how his health-conscious, home-schooled kids are learning through doing. To top it off, he tells us the ultimate morning ritual that sets you up for life. Ben is a genius when it comes to optimizing our health, and I’m so excited for you to get an insight into how his mind works.

#22 Dr. Joel Fuhrman on The Nutritarian Diet and How it Can Save Us All

EYou hear me talk about it a lot. What we eat has a huge impact on our health and the health of the environment. What if I told you that nutrition is even more powerful than any of us are led to believe? By eating a Nutritarian Diet, you can protect yourself against heart disease, diabetes, cancer and even dementia. We’ve always had all the answers, and now it’s time to use them. WELCOME TO THEDARIN OLIEN SHOW. On this podcast, you'll hear me, Darin Olien, "the superfood hunter," have honest conversations with the extraordinary people that inspire me. I hope that through their knowledge and unique perspectives, they'll inspire you, too. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time. If you're interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition, and healing the planet, this podcast is for you. Dr. Joel Fuhrman knows more about nutrition than anyone I’ve ever met. In fact, he’s written 13 books on the subject. Seven of those have become New York Times bestsellers, including Eat to Live and his latest, Eat for Life. From a young age, Dr. Fuhrman was obsessed with healthy food. Growing up in Yonkers, NY, he would spend hours reading books with his father about the science of nutrients. His healthy eating style gave him an edge as a teenage athlete. In 1976, he placed 3rd in the world for pairs figure skating. These unique credentials gave him authenticity while advising Olympic athletes on nutrition years later. Today, Dr. Fuhrman is a champion for the “Nutritarian Diet,” a phrase he coined himself. This health-driven way of eating focuses on a diet full of nutrient-dense whole foods. He’s a firm believer in the dangers of the standard American diet. Processed foods, sugars, and chemicals are slowly killing us, and the doctor has proof. Throughout his 35+ year career, he has seen the healing power of the Nutritarian Diet. Patients suffering from kidney failure, heart disease, morbid obesity, and even cancer- all healed by completely overhauling their eating habits. In this conversation, Dr.Fuhrman breaks down why nutrient-rich foods are essential for preventing disease. He gives us some frightening US health statistics that even I wasn’t aware of.
