I recently went on a whirlwind tour of LA for my new book Boundless. I sat in on and hosted plenty of panels and Q&As—and recorded the best of the best of all of them for your listening and educational pleasure!

In the first part of this episode, you'll hear me on a panel with Dr. Darshan Shah of NextHealth, with whom I have collaborated on multiple podcasts, including:

After the panel with Dr. Shah—in which we discussed sleep, habits, routines, rituals, longevity, biohacking, parenting, spirituality and much more—you'll hear the Q&A we recorded at that same event.

In the second part of this episode, you'll hear a separate Q&A recorded at the second book launch party at The Bungalow, in which we cover deep sleep, REM sleep, sex hacking, plant medicine and psychedelics, NAD best practices, sirtuins, and a host of other interesting topics.

So sit back for a wild biohacking Boundless ride (and if you haven't yet purchased your copy of my new book Boundless, you can grab it here).
