In this episode, I had the honor of being joined by Danny Vega and Brian Williamson of The Ketogenic Athlete Podcast. The three of us spent this past week at my family farm down in south Arkansas. We figured we'd record a podcast in the middle of all the festivities. We talked about the importance of disconnecting from our day-to-day hustle. We discussed silence and solitude. We exposed our insecurities so that we could develop new skills. We all harvested animals while we were there so we talked about that experience and the importance of respecting where your food comes from. We all had a blast and I hope this podcast gives you a glimpse into what we experienced!
