In August 2017 I began the Stag Roar Podcast for two reasons; firstly I wanted to have an excuse to talk to some amazing people around topics that interest me, mostly in the realms of health, nutrition, fitness and wellbeing. Secondly to give real world examples to my pairs of people who are out there living a less ordinary life, which would give proof of concept, that when you set your mind to it, anything really is possible.
So as 2019 roles around and we have 57 episodes in the can, I thought it would be great to check in and list the top 5 episodes. Obviously my podcast is still in its infancy (still being recorded from my laptop through iPhone headphones) with an average of 200 listens per episode, but as we head for the 100th episode and a goal of 1000 average downloads here is where I am at.

Dr Shawn Baker is an Orthopaedic Surgeon who has been practicing the Carnivore diet for the last 14 months. Shawn talks us through his developments from Paleo, to Keto and on to having nothing but steaks and the remarkable benefits it had on his health, his strength and his concentration. We discuss his time in New Zealand, playing rugby for Hautapu, Weight lifting, and his world records in Ergometer rowing on the Concept 2 rower. We touch on which All Black and his brother have started eating Carnivore as well as other health professionals such as Prof. Tim Noakes and Dr Gary Fettke who have also had run ins with legislators and industry dogma. It was so exciting having Shawn on, and I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. I must apologise for the technical difficulties in the first ten minutes but after this we managed to talk uninterrupted and we get into a good flow.
