Somewhat Interesting

Some interviews were more interesting than others. Those interviews where politics was mentioned were not welcome, because that is not what this subject matter was about. And it always proves, particularly Chelsea Handlers, that once again Hollywood and professional athletes are far removed from America and the core values of America and what Americans stand for and want. This is why no one listens to these people.

Some episodes better than others

Episode 1: I wasn't sure what to expect from this but it was interesting to hear Michael B. Jordan talk about preparing for roles and his experiences on set. I'm not a fan of Blake Griffin but this podcast style listen can be enjoyed by anyone. If you would enjoy getting an inside look into what an actor does to prepare his mind and body for movie roles, as well as hearing about the beginnings of Michael's career, give this episode a listen. Episode 2: Anyone who has a hard time getting enough hours of sleep at night could benefit from listening to these tips from Arianna Huffington. This title was my introduction to her and I was pleased at how many tips were packed into this short conversation between her and Blake. I especially appreciated her recommendation to start out small and work up to your goal. So many times, people try to start at the max level and maintain, which sets them up to fail. Slowly working up to a goal increases the likelihood you will stick with the change in the long run. Episode 3: This is general information about mindfulness. If you are new to the topic, it is a good introduction. If you are aware of the basics of mindfulness, there's nothing new presented in this short conversation. Episode 4: This was an interesting conversation that kept my attention. Several things were mentioned that I plan to research further. With that being said, I do not agree with everything Deepak stated and I do not recommend following Deepak without doing some critical thinking and independent research. It can be dangerous to listen to the medical/health claims of ANYONE without doing your own research. I recommend listening with an open, yet, critical mind. I find many of Deepak's claims to be dubious, but I listened with an open mind, having heard of Deepak for many years but having never delved into his beliefs/teachings. This is an interesting overview of Deepak Chopra, but the content of his message should be received with caution. Episode 5: This short conversation between Blake and Antoni is worth a listen. I had never heard of Antoni before listening to this and I don't cook, but it was interesting to learn about this man's journey to where he is now. If you like learning more about interesting individuals, you might enjoy this. Episode 6: This is a great conversation between Blake and Oksana Masters. Oksana has overcome adversities in her life to accomplish things few ever will. She tells her story with enthusiasm and she embraces being a role model for others. Definitely share this with anyone in your life who may feel like they are limited due to a disability. Hopefully, they will find inspiration in Oksana's story. Episode 7: I had never heard of this guy before listening to this title. I am sure Dave Asprey's views are controversial. It was interesting to listen to this man's views, but I would recommend anyone who wants to follow this man's recommendations to do your own research into his claims first. Each episode explores a different facet of healthiness and I appreciated the well-rounded approach. Worth a listen even if you don't agree with each guest.

Wellness from many different angles

I’m usually don’t read a lot of self-help type book/audio but this was very relatable in many ways. The interviewees are from various background/profession (Chelsea Handler to Deepak Chopra) but some how Blake’s style makes them all approachable and easy to relate to. Blake also relates it back to sports and his own life which is interesting to hear. I loved it and felt empty when I finished it in a day!!!

Worth the Shot

Some very engaging and entertaining conversations with several laugh out loud moments. I’m likely to investigate further areas and people that I was never aware of before like the headspace app, renewed focus on sleep using a dream journal, Bullet coffee (hmmm...) and perhaps trying edibles 🤷🏻‍♀️Other less applicable but still tolerable interviewees included Karlie Kloss, Antoni Porowski and Scott Smith. Oksana Masters was incredible and I also really enjoyed Ariana Huffington as well. Catchy music intro and looked forward to each episode. Hoping he continues for another season!

Enjoyed every episode.

I knew Blake was a great athlete but didn't know he was also a podcaster. Blake does an excellent job of interviewing all of his guests. Worth the listen and hope to hear more from Mr. Blake.

Informative and Entertaining

Interesting and fun podcast to listen to. Not a lot of detailed health advise, but it's definitely entertaining.

Fascinating and honest

As a fan of the NBA, I’ve seen Blake interviewed a thousand times. Now he is on the other side of the mic and better than ever. His ability to make his guests comfortable results in great talks. I was intrigued throughout all ten episodes. Thank you Blake Griffin!

Great snippets to take away

Loved nearly all of the interviews on this audio book. Lots of snippets to take away, and think about. Helps you to ground yourself and think about ‘what applies to me!’ Especially loved the interviews on healthy eating, attitude, vision, small changes. Thought the last interview, did not ‘fit’ like the others did, but I was happy to listen.
