The Peter Attia Drive

I’ve been running this newsletter for 29 weeks now, meaning I’ve now, including this edition of the newsletter, recommended 145 podcasts, and this is easily in my top 5 that I’ve discovered over the past half-year or so. If you want to live longer, perform better and simply get some really great wisdom about life and the human condition, listen to this podcast. Peter Attia is a renowned physician whose focus is on the applied science of longevity, but he’s not just a physician, he’s an incredibly smart man. Well worth a listen.

What Should I Read Next?

If you’re an avid reader, you’ll probably be faced with the question of what to read next. This podcast aims to answer that question and more, through a series of reader interviews that are oddly interesting. A format that shouldn’t really work on the face of it, but  actually hearing people’s passion for the books they read and the genres they prefer is illuminating.

Power Corrupts

Power, not money, is what the most powerful seek more of. This podcast looks at some of the most powerful, corrupt and power-hungry that plague this world. Election rigging. Smuggling. Narcopolitics. Ransom. Conspiracy. Cults. Drug Lords. The list goes on and on. Narrated by political scientist and columnist for the Washington Post, Dr. Brian Klaas.

Grammar Girl

It’s hard to get to Episode 731 (as of this writing) without having some modicum of success with your podcasting. That’s how prolific Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a Grammar Girl has been with her award-winning podcast. This is without a doubt one of the gems of the podcasting world if you’re into becoming a better writer and speaker. Each episode contains at least a few short but useful lessons and uses a variety of memory tricks to help you remember and apply even the most troublesome of grammar rules.
