Over the past 232 episodes, I’ve been your host and guide through the worlds of biohacking, spirituality asking some of the most profound and cutting-edge thought leaders out there what makes them tick — but, today, we’re flipping the tables.

Because past guest (and next week’s guest) Matt Maruca invited me to Rick Rubin’s world-famous Shangri-La studios, a recording studio used by the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Pete Townshend, Joe Cocker, Billy Preston, Ronnie Wood, Weezer, Metallica, and Kings of Leon. It was an honor to record at these same mics, a brief but welcome return to my rockin’ roots.

Matt invited me here to ask me some questions about my past, my trauma, my healing, and my future. I’ve talked about a lot of this before, but I’ve been looking at my life, and the experience of life in general, differently over the past few months; I have more awareness and presence than I had even just a year ago, and I’m still learning new things about myself and the world every day.

So, today, I invite you into my life, into my mind, to learn what makes The Lifestylist tick.
