#2 - Feeding Frenzy

Feeding Frenzy is a weekly round-up of web links we find to be worth your time. These posts will act as the foundation of mental meandering across all domains!

A Podcast to Devour:

Safi Bahcall on The Tim Ferriss Show

Safi Bahcall is a physicist, biotech entrepreneur, and writer of the recently released book Loonshots. This podcast is a gold mine for thinking about and dealing with mental chatter. We particularly enjoyed the “meeting of the board” idea when working with a lingering problem.


Worth Watching

Trips of Compassion

This documentary has been on our radar for a while now and appears with Erich’s research on MAPS. If you're on the fence with the therapeutic use of psychedelics, this makes a strong case for it. To see the patients go through the cognitive behavioral therapy process is nothing short of remarkable. This documentary provides a strong sense of hope other documentaries lack. FYI, the documentary is mostly in Arabic


Story to Ponder

The Story of the Chinese Farmer

Our friend Mike Taccona sent us this video earlier in the week which generated a conversation about our perspective on life. In sum, he felt a sense of gratitude. Ponder away!


The App Erich’s Experimenting With

Zero Fasting

Peter Attia and Kevin Rose have recommended something called “Zero Fasting” helping those of us following an intermittent fasting protocol. “Feeding” hours start at noon and end with dinner around 6 pm. This app adds to Erich’s large list of metrics that helping him stay honest. Erich states, “I have had an average of 15 fasting hours over the past three days. I plan to tweak the length of my optimal ‘feeding window’.”


This week is a wrap and plenty to chew over this week! Feel free to let us know any thoughts and suggestions that may contribute to these posts. It may pop-up on Feeding Frenzy or develop into a full-fledged post its own.

Stay Curious, and have a great week!
