Smart and humble Doc
Been following Peter Attia MD after my exploration and research into keto lifestyle. He had a great blog/website that is very informative. Being a medical provider myself, I like that his blog is research driven, always backing up is knowledge with facts. I have been waiting a long time for a podcast after hearing him on Tim Ferris. Very Smart, leads active lifestyle, seeks longevity medicine, biohacker, and simply a “cool” person. Thank you for taking the Time to share information through a podcast!
Peter happens to be one of the most interesting people I’ve ever heard. Since listening to him on Joe Rogan podcast, and subscribing to his newsletter, I’ve never once been disappointed or bored with his Content. I look forward to this podcast to being just like everything else he does, precise, informative, and most of all not lame.
Love indulging in peter’s podcasts. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the profanity. Yes, I’m an unapologetic seeker of all that is wholesome and would love to be able to recommend the podcasts to my family and friends if the language could be filtered. Thanks for providing a real education!
