Interview on the Bryan Callen Show
By: Dave Asprey
June 17, 2013
Living in the Information Age provides limitless opportunities to connect with many ambitious and curious minds like Joe Rogan, Dr. Doug McGuff, Dan John, and now Bryan Callen.
It was fun talking with Bryan Callen about a whole myriad of topics ranging from driving Hummer SUVs, to the wretched ‘Big Food’ industry and what foods to have on a deserted island.
The Bryan Callen Show features an array of different personalities (celebrities, authors, producers, filmmakers, directors and other accomplished individuals) to discuss a variety of topics, focusing on perspective and experience. Bryan is an actor, comedian, regular guest on the Joe Rogan Experience, and most importantly – a thinker.
It was a great pleasure to be on Bryan’s show to discuss and help answer his listener’s common questions. It is so exciting to see the Internet and podcasts cultivate what seems to be a serious information revolution! Podcasts like the Bryan Callen Show and Bulletproof® Executive Radio are working to provide more perspectives, more science, and more questions!
