#113 - Tommy Siera On Memory Hacks, Edibles & The Wonders Of Meditation

Tommy Sierra is a professional skydiver and a life explorer. He’s done a lot of things you wouldn’t believe, and generally just an all around good guy.

It’s his second time on the show, so the boys ask Tommy what he’s been up to lately. He also shares a story about how he once broke his leg, followed by Doc’s tale of a Dutch dude he met over AirBnB.

Later on, they get into talking about drugs and how it increases productivity, Tommy’s ADHD, and some practices for improving memory. After that, there’s talk on micro-dosing with mushrooms, Ayahuasca, and how meditation does wonders for you!

 10/10 a great show, guys! Don’t miss it because there’s lots of interesting things we’ve covered in this one.

Darrell Wade is the Executive Chair and co-founder of Intrepid Travel. He’s an avid traveler, very well-traveled, and unlike others, he does not sport a beard.
