mayim was being super ignorant when it came to intermittent fasting/omad and the clear evidence of the many benefits of it - you can tell that david was getting pissed off as well the way she was going about it. the way she kept laughing in a mocking way and making snide comments when she spoke to him was disappointing tbh

Wowwwwwww, that guy really wanted to make it a point to tell you how annoying the overabundance of ad breaks was - I'm sure you're deeply wounded by the loss of that listener 😂 Ok but I agree it was a LOT. But it's not what I came to say. I came to say that I've followed and deeply appreciated Vishen's work for many years, and it's so exciting to watch him and MindValley growing! This is the first of your podcasts that I've listened to, and when I had decided I was going to listen to an episode from your podcasts, seeing Vishen instantly made me select this episode 😊

Hello, I suffer from severe anxiety and I've been experiencing throat spasms. I have problems swallowing at times, which can be scary. I'm on welbutrin, which helps and I practice breathing exercises and meditation. I now stress can be a killer, but I never knew it could effect your body like that.

Great episode! The point you made on not being available for those conversations reminded me of something. I came across another podcast a while back from another of your guests and a quote stuck from something she said. "You don't have to attend every argument you're invited to."

I'm going to pass on listening to your Hollywood Phonebook anymore, it's the same story and often just a long AD that I will just skip from now on, you know REAL Doctors, once you open up that Academic Phonebook again I will be happy to listen, other wise, skip this one it's just another trash magazine episode
