Meet our new series spotlighting podcast episodes worth a good listen or two, especially as the weather cools, our schedules constrict and we look for new ways to make the most of our time. As you may be well aware, podcasts make great companions for short runs, long commutes, cooking preparation and just about any other activity we can think of in which the brain is allowed to roam free.
Our first episode in the spotlight is a hardcore wellness pick from Luke Storey’s The Life Stylist pod. Luke is a devoted biohacker with a voracious appetite for people, schools of thought and innovative ideas meant to optimize quality of life – mostly with a wellness bent. Here’s why we listened to the pod more than once, gushed about it to friends, and recommend you taking a listen for yourself…
the pod: The Life Stylist Podcast by Luke Storey; Episode #74: The End of Cancer: A Hidden Cure with Dr. Mark Sircus
the message: Dr. Sircus is a doctor of oriental medicine committed to promoting his wildly affordable and relatively simple protocols to deal with cancer. Skeptical? Why wouldn’t you be. The podcast description itself doesn’t mince any words:
“Let’s face it — In the world of natural and alternative medicine, there is no shortage of bullshit. Snake oil. False claims. Woo-woo nonsense. Regardless, there is also a wealth of knowledge and viable information that has largely been suppressed…”
why we loved it: We’re the first to raise our eyebrows at incredible claims and too-good-to-be-true premises. But we’re also open to the idea of non-conventional natural health protocols because we’ve had so many great experiences with them ourselves. And we’re familiar with just how shockingly cheap and simple natural remedies can be sometimes.
Take a listen and let us know your thoughts.We certainly make no endorsement of Dr. Sicrus’ claims, but his out of the box ideas and personal health habits definitely had us intrigued.

Very much agree!
Rich Roll Podcast, On Being with Krista Tippet, The Tim Ferris Show, The School of Greatness and The Optimized Geek are all incredibly informative, streamlined, BIG idea podcasts I listen to regularly (among many, many others!)
Yikes, Dr. Sircus is one to avoid! His claims are downright dangerous, especially for someone who is truly ill from cancer.
I LOVE this podcast! So much good information.
My Favorite Murder! Death Sex & Money, Ann Ortelee’s Weekly Weather Astrology, Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin (he is a great interviewer) and WTF with Marc Maron
On Being with Krista Tippet, Toolkit for Life with Janna Lozow, Awake in the World with Michael Stone and The Messy Middle.
Love Luke’s podcast! A great double episode of his is his interview with Dr. Jack Kruse – who knew lighting had such an important impact on our health?! Also, love Krista and Lindsey from Almost 30 podcast. A standout episode for me was their interview with Kimberly Rae Miller, the author of “Beautiful Bodies”. It was a beautiful, honest and vulnerable discussion on body positivity and self-love. A must listen!
Luke’s is so good! I love how he keeps it interesting, and conversational. Luke’s actually reminds me of The Almost 30 Podcast in a way, one of my favs because the girls keep it super HONEST, real, raw and FUN. They talk all things spirituality, dating, career, nutrition…I always laugh and leave inspired. One of my favorites was their interview with Kelly LeVeque – it seriously CHANGED THE GAME for my eating! So good!.
Alternative medicine can ease the pain or help us stay healthy without such poisoning chemicals in our blood stream. However, when there is a chronic condition like HIV or cancer, the patient must follow the regular treatment that has been proved for its effectiveness.
