#14 - Military Training, Fitness Industry and Sustainable Weight Loss With Commando Steve

Commando Steve is a health and fitness expert, an ex-commando in the Australian army, a successful entrepreneur, and a modern-day thinker.

First off, he shares about why people call him ‘Commando Steve’ and then shares about his time in the military, and the time he spent overseas.

The convo moves to Steve sharing about his PT time, army-style nutrition, and moving into CrossFit. A funny twist when we ask him about his longest time without a bath! And for those interested in weight loss, listen in because our crew picks on Steve’s insights on this.

Finally, the discussion goes a little deeper as it moves into spirituality and religious views. Then, the classic 9 from 9!

Loved this conversation with Commando Steve guys. We hope you enjoy it!

#12 - Dianne McGrath - Governing A New Planet, Extraterrestrial Life & Terraforming Mars

In the second installation of this two-part interview, Dianne, Bill, Mac and Tom continue the conversation from the previous episode and talk about how the government structure will initially work in Mars once it’s actually there. Leadership and politics, ladies and gents! It is a legitimate concern and Dianne shares with us the plan.

Moving forward with the conversation, it gets more interesting as Dianne shares how the initial phases of living will be like in the planet, growing the human population, and how we could potentially harness the natural resources on Mars. She also outlines how food growing systems are to be integrated and what the top food picks are for living extraterrestrial life.

Further, they talk about the possibility of encountering extraterrestrial life and what that potentially means for humanity in general, as well as terraforming Mars.

Towards the end of the conversation we learn more about Dianne’s methods on biohacking and how she does everything she can to maximise her life.

Great thoughts packed in this episode. Enjoy guys!
