July 17, 2017
00:0000:00
DJ Billy Kenny @BillyKennyMusic is a British DJ, Producer, and head of A&R for electronic music label This Aint Bristol. 
 
Max Charnas @charnizard is a writer and blogger for the same label - a label known for its confounding ability to make you feel like a grasshopper at a grasshopper party. 
 
We were lucky enough to have Billy join the bus for an EDC exclusive conversation. Why? Because Billy is the closing act on the Cosmic Meadow stage at music festival @EDC_LasVegas (Electric Daisy Carnival); analogous to the Super Bowl of electronic music festivals. Spoiler Alert: he plays an exclusive - the intro of his EDC set. 
 
From stories of their youth and acid experiences to music influences and song discovery, Billy and Max give a real look into their lives during this riveting conversation.

Episode 32: Dr. Scott Solomon - Are Humans Still Evolving?

June 6, 2017
00:0000:00
Dr. Scott Solomon, @ScottESolomon is an evolutionary biologist, ecologist, science writer, and professor at Rice University. His writing has been featured in Slate, Nautilus, Wired.com, and Business Insider. His most recent book is aptly titled "Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution," in which he analyzes and answers the principled question: Are humans still evolving? 
 
If evolving, how will humans look in 100,000 years? What role do epigenetics play in modern day diseases? If we colonize Mars, how will the change in gravity and atmosphere affect our biology? Will humans on Mars diverge from those on Earth? These are some of the questions we came into this episode pondering
 
Dr. Solomon takes the bus down a winding and twisting road to help us better understand how evolutionary biology is impacting modern day and future life on this planet. He provides explanation and insight into some of the mechanisms that effect evolution; mate selection, disease, and culture.
 
Don't worry - the bus doesn't stop there. After we breeze past those topics the discussion broadens into some more arcane fields. The bus discusses the effects of bacteria on health and the gut-biome, the potential of virtual reality to evolutionary pressures, CRISPR and genetic sequencing's potential, and whether online dating is messing up natural sexual cues in the search for a mate.
 
This episode was an INCREDIBLE episode all around. The coup de grace is a lasting discussion on the colonization of Mars. Dr. Solomon helps us better understand how humans living on Mars could diverge from those on Earth. Its quite thorough and fun.
 
Looking for another science episode? We spoke with Michael Hinden extensively about botany and epigenetics in Episode 026. Listen to it here.

Episode 031: Lauren Sesselmann - The Woman Behind the Cleats

May 25, 2017
00:0000:00

Lauren Sesselmann @lsesselmann is a defender for the Canadian national soccer team and plays in the new NWSL (National Woman's Soccer League). She won a bronze medal in the 2012 Olympics and a gold medal in the 2011 Pan-America Games at Guadalajara. 

 
Lauren is more than just a hard-working athlete. She is a fitness instructor (just releasing her second Fit as a Pro program), a mentor - focusing on helping younger girl athletes find success in sports, a growing influencer via social media, an actress, and TV host. 
 
Soccer is the most prolific sport around the world and reaching new heights in North America. But woman's soccer, though growing rapidly, is still stuck with a negative stigma in the quality of play. The bus and Lauren challenge this notion while exploring woman's sports science and injury recovery compared to men's (such as ACL tears are greater during menstrual cycles). 
 
This episode not only explores Lauren's injuries and experiences as a woman in sports, it also takes a look into her depression and coinciding new confidence and creativity as she approaches retirement. Lauren's passion is mentoring and we also talk about everything from racism and sexism to nutrition, dating, social media, acting, and her side projects. 
 
Lauren was one of the most fun people we've had in the studio thus far. She is intelligent, motivational, hard-working, insightful, funny, and has no problem pointing out the bus driver being in love. You're going to absolutely love this show. 
 
This episode we learned some of the same struggles we had from a previous Olympic hopeful, Jared Firestone. Take a look at his episode here if you'd like to listen to another sports topic.

The supplement that we are experimenting with at the moment is the bitter melon, in order to enhance our body's longevity. 
 
The blog we are reading is MIgrationology. The blog of Mark Wiens who travels the world via his stomach in search of the most delicious food. Love that Kha Floating Market post!
 
The exercise optimization we are toying with is Ryan Flaherty’s, top 3 optimal exercises primarily the hex bar deadlift to enhance speed and explosion.
