In this new podcast Body Talk, David Lesondak explores your inner universe! Each week David talks to experts, scientists, doctors, therapists, and passionate trailblazers of the human body.
David Lesondak is the author of the international best seller, Fascia What it is and Why it Matters and Editor of Fascia, Function, and Medical Applications.
I met David when I was President of the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, and for our National Conference he was the teaching assistant for Thomas Myers, author of Anatomy Trains. Since then I have had the pleasure of speaking with David several times, the last during the 2018 International Fascial Research Congress in Berlin. He is an engaging interviewer and has the most fascinating guests lined up for his podcasts.
His first episode is an interview with James Nestor, the author of Breath. I know we have been sending out alot of news items related to this New York Times Bestseller, but there is a reason for that. The book is a must read and will absolutely change the way you approach your health.
One of my favourite episodes is his discussion with Neil Thiese who I also met in Berlin during the Congress in 2018. His presentation in Berlin blew my mind and this interview is full of his insight, humour and infectious passion for exploration of what it means to exist.
Buckle up and hang on as David and Neil discuss everything from atoms, cells, the body, to the universe, with plenty of laughing along the way. Neil is a physician-scientist, anatomist, and philosopher and currently a Professor of Pathology at New York University School of Medicine and attending physician at NYU Langone Health.
Theise is considered a global thought leader, and has extended his work to areas of theoretical biology, defining a “post-modern biology.” As an adult stem cell researcher, his series of discoveries became the subject of George W. Bush’s famous stem cell address.
In 2018, Theise’s novel detailing the anatomy of human fascia was featured in The New York Times, Scientific American, NPR, and The Late Late Show with James Corden. This was the subject of his presentation I saw in Berlin.
Most recently, he is the lead author on a paper investigating an anti-viral treatment for COVID-19, which is now entering clinical trials. Theise is also a senior student of Zen Buddhism at the Village Zendo. He lives in New York City with his husband, Mark.
You never know where the conversation is going to go with David's guests. New episodes drop every Sunday so I invite you to check it out and subscribe for future podcasts.
