My Podcast Interview at Paleo Weekly: My Evil Plot, Revealed

This is a different sort of podcast interview, I think, from my previous ones that focussed primarily on my path of weight loss and various health and fitness issues within the Paleo and Primal world.

Hank Garner, who interviewed me here for his own low-carb oriented site, and Steve Cooksey of Diabetes Warrior, have teamed up to create a new resource, Paleo Weekly, that seeks to offer a weekly podcast dealing with issues within the Paleo community.

Here’s the link to my hour-long interview, with me fielding questions from both Hank and Steve.

I particularly enjoyed the exchange because for once, it wasn’t about my own ideas on health, but more about my ideas on blogging, how I deal with dissent, how I handle commenters; in short, why I do what I do. My evil plot, revealed.

From there, we get into discussing some specific controversies and controversial posts, I hate on reenactment a bit and discuss a few other odds & ends.

So if you’re inclined, give it a listen.

Later: For instance and as an example of part of what I discuss in the interview, "PrimalProfesor" says in a comment on the last post about the Raw Vegan Live Debate: "I hope for the primal community’s sake you get your arse handed to you." Pure gold.

And if you like it, let it be known using the Facebook and Twitter buttons at top. And if you don’t, just keep quiet about it.

Memberships are $10 monthly, $20 quarterly, or $65 annually. The cost of two premium coffees per month. Every membership helps finance the travel to write, photo, and film from interesting places and share the experiences with you.

    Enjoying the interview, but I was kind of expecting a deeper voice.

    Great interview. Best show that Steve and Hank have done so far. I like your take on the Paleo community. There’s many camps out there and they all have it working for them. Not everybody can afford pastured, organic meat all the time. The camps have more in common than many realize. My cubie is a raw foodist(not vegan, he eats raw eggs) and we even have some commonality.

    Keep up the great blog!

  12. […] back last week when I posted about my most recent podcast interview (My Podcast Interview at Paleo Weekly: My Evil Plot, Revealed), I didn't really reveal the whole Evil Plot in that podcast. That was just to make you think I did […]
