The Meat Mafia Podcast

By Meat Mafia
The Meat Mafia Podcast is hosted by @CarniClemenza and @MrSollozzo with the mission of addressing fundamental problems in our food and healthcare system. Our concerns with our healthcare system can be drawn back to problems in our food system as far back as soil health. Our principles are simple: eat real foods, buy locally, and cook your own meals.

When you listen to our podcast you will hear stories and conversations from people working on the fringes of the food and healthcare system to address the major crises overshadowing modern society: how do we become healthy again?

Robb Wolf, a former research biochemist, is the 2x New York Times/WSJ Best Selling author of The Paleo Solution and Wired To Eat. He also recently published his book Sacred Cow with Diana Rodgers, which discusses the nutritious, environmental, and ethical case for eating meat. In addition to being an author, Robb has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world via his top ranked iTunes podcast - The Healthy Rebellion, as well as through his books and seminars. On top of all the work he has done educating others, Robb is a decorated athlete: a purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu, a former California State Powerlifting Champion, and an undefeated amateur kickboxer. He’s given seminars in nutrition and strength to organizations like NASA, Naval Special Warfare, and the United States Marine Corps. Like many, Robb’s story starts with his own health struggles. Robb had been dealing with Ulcerative Colitis for several years and it had just about warn him down, to the point where he was having depressive thoughts he had never previously experienced. He rebuilt himself and cured his gut through a Paleolithic approach to eating. His success on an ancestral diet led him to making a career around nutrition and ultimately led him to being at the center of the Paleo and CrossFit movements. **On Joe Rogan** Robb Wolf and Diana Rodgers both appeared on the Joe Rogan Podcast earlier in the year to discuss their latest book and documentary, Sacred Cow.

#60: Dr. Gary Fettke (@FructoseNo) - Confronting the Established Medical Paradigm
We were honored to be joined by Dr. Gary Fettke on Episode #60 of the podcast. Dr. Fettke is one of the leading experts in the low carb space, advocating for more Saturated Fat and less sugar & refined grains for over a decade. Dr. Fettke is an Orthopedic Surgeon with over 25 years of experience, but his medical career paints a broader picture of how the medical industry operates. Gary faced immense pressure from the established medical community in Australia for the stance he made around low-carbohydrate nutrition. He had grown tired of operating on his patients suffering from severe, life-threatening complications with Type II diabetes. Gary started prescribing a low-carb, high-fat diet to remedy metabolic disease and he found the approach to be largely successful with his patients, however, the medical boards took serious problems with his recommendations.

#19: Conza (@Conza) - Running an Full-Distance Ironman on Only 3 Eggs, Thinking from First Principles, and Stretching to New Limits.

Conza tests the limits of what our bodies can do and his performance may help shift the paradigm not only around fueling for endurance races, but fueling for everyday life. On top of all this, he's an OG bitcoiner and he's got an Australian accent - enjoy!
