What is biohacking?
Biohacking can be a polarizing word.
Those identify themselves as biohackers love it, seeing the word as an umbrella term for the many ways we pursue an optimized human experience - including fitness, nutrition, technology, and nature to name a few.
But for many, the term biohacker carries connotations of seeking shortcuts and the avoidance of doing the work.
(Nothing could be farther from the truth - biohackers are among the hardest working, most well read researched folks I've met)
Still, others are confused by the term, and turned off before they have a chance to understand what it means.
This podcast, and the Biohacker Summit is an open invitation for all to understand the term, meet the welcoming world of biohacking, and embrace the pursuit of better living through science and nature.
