On a recent trip to Austin, Texas, I had the pleasure to sit down with my new friend Brian Sanders.

Brian is the filmmaker behind the feature-length documentary Food Lies and host of the Peak Human podcast. He graduated from UCLA with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and then turned to technology and sold an app company. He’s used his technical background and love for fitness and nutrition to also work as a Health Coach and be the co-founder of the health, media, and technology company SAPIEN

He's also a speaker and the owner of providing premium grass-finished meat to the 48 contiguous states. Prior to this podcast, we both did a "shot" of a kratom/kava euphoric-inducing blend called FeelFree, so the podcast got a bit crazy!
