    Ben, I’m not making negative comment on what you said (Jesus, masks, vaccines). It’s your podcast. You say what you want. Listeners need to remember they don’t have to listen. I hope this is taken as constructive criticism for you. You sound high dude. I’m all for having a casual conversation style podcast. And I love the banter with you and your side kicks or while taking questions. But I’ve been listening almost as long as you’ve been podcasting. I was honestly thinking the whole time, “Ben are you high?” Your demeanor was a little off on this podcast. Not what you said, but how you said it. Definitely an odd experience after listening to you for so many hours in all types of situations.

  2. Carlos says:

    YES. I hate those stupid robot vacuum cleaners as well.! They suck. Also I want to move to Norway for a time. Just to see what its like. People are awesome and nice etc.

    1. Ben Greenfield says:

      yeah, it’s a nice country to visit

  3. Amigo says:

    Every click on this site now and opens a new window. Not cool.

  4. dan says:

    Can we do less Jesusy stuff please

  5. Joe Kirkpatrick says:

    Hey Ben,

    interesting content thanks. I read the study on GlyNac and the dosage used was presented in mmols per pound if I recall.

    I know its just one study but since both glycine and NAC appear to be beneficial for other reasons I decided to add these to my supplement regimen. Any thoughts on what might be an impactful dose? I weigh 150#.



    1. Remi says:

      Hi Joe,
      What dose did you decide to go with? Did you find a combo tablet? If so, what company?

    Q: Regenerative practices to help the bone that won’t quite heal…49:58

    Kaatsu/BFR cycling for +5min on (when resting) 2min off, doubles the healing rate plus no muscle atropy.
    According to Dr. Sato (Inventor of Kaatsu)

    1. Drv says:

      Bioregulatory peptides
      The four I would stack are
      Blood vessel, parathyroid (bone), pineal gland, thymus, and potentially add cartilage for good measure
      Hope you see this.

  7. Andy says:

    Whats with fake voices and dramatic preaching??? Cut back on the kratom Ben, it’s becoming painful to listen to you attempting to joel osteen

    1. Allahu Akbar says:

      second that. Ben you got an international audience, act like it.
      We know are christian, some don’t want to hear it

    2. Mark says:

      Agreed and the anti-mask rant was such a strawman argument, I really thought Ben was smarter than that.

    3. Brian says:

      This site has devolved into a thinly-veiled channel for Ben to preach and humble brag about how amazing he is. He reminds us of his faith at every chance, while interrupting podcast guests to recount his accomplishments and filling his site with fish-mouthed Insta poses. Hypocrisy much?
