Back in April, I pre-ordered a 2nd generation Oura Ring. My deviced finally arrived in the middle of November and I have been wearing it daily ever since. It is helping me gauge factors related to sleep quality and the information being provided is incredibly fascinating.
The Quote Of The Day Show podcast offers daily excerpts from motivational speakers. I recently listened to episode 453 which features a 12 minute listen from Pamela Jett.

The Ketogeek Fahad Ahmad recently interviewed chemical engineer turned health expert Ivor Cummins. Ivor has a way of making complex topics very accessible and this interview is worth the time investment.

For the super nerds out there, STEM-Talk is a podcast sponsored by the IHMC (Institute for Human and Machine Cognition), a not-for-profit research institute of the Florida University System. The podcast series started in March 2016 and their slogan reads “Conversations with some of the most interesting people in the world of science and technology”. I have listened to a few of their health related podcasts and they are worth a listen.
