Podcast Interview: My Low Carb Journey; Hank Garner

Some weeks back I was contacted by Hank Garner about doing a podcast interview on his new show on his new blog. He’d already had Sean Croxton and Gary Taubes on, so I’d be in great company. I agreed.

While Hank has been at this only a few months, he has racked up a lot of progress for himself in terms of weight loss and from the looks of his blog and quality of his podcast production I think he really stands a chance of making this into something big. jimmy moore can’t possibly interview everyone that might be interesting or informative. And just for me? I love the health podcasts by Jimmy and Robb Wolf. It’s almost always what’s playing in the car on the long trips. So now I have another subscription to add.

Hank was a good interviewer. Rather than making it a duplicate of my interview with Jimmy, he steered it into different areas. I think it went alright and if you’ve got the time this weekend, perhaps you want to give it a listen. I certainly had fun doing it.

Laf. They do have a "Parental Guidance Suggested" warning at the beginning, and Hank told me it was the first PG-13 Rated podcast.

It is indeed. I only alluded to f-bombs. I also dropped a lot of names of other good bloggers out there.

    Jimmy Moore can’t possibly interview everyone that might be interesting or informative.

    That might be the riskiest prediction you or anyone has ever made. :)

    I just recently started listening to Jimmy’s podcasts and I’m impressed.

    Going through his back catalog is going to take some doing.

    I’m going to listen to the interview with Hank Garner right now.

    Good point about the paleo haters and naysayers being primarily in their 20s or early 30s (such as He Who Cannot Be Named). Let’s see your N-1 diet stunningly transform a 54 year old (like the Unconquerable Dave just posted by Mark Sisson) and then we’ll talk.

      Great interview.

      Money quote: “It’s so complicated even chipmunks can do it”

      Also what peaked my interest, chronic underfeeding, I’ll have to look into that, I suspect my wife might be doing that.

    Excellent. The interview had that “tone” that voice that is you that needs to be in your book when you do it.

    I really liked how this was more of a conversation vs an interview. It didn’t feel formal or anything. Rather, it sounded like two guys on their patio, having a few beers and enjoying a Saturday afternoon or something.

    Patrick, that is a huge compliment. That is the exact tone I try to have with all my podcasts.
