Biohacker's Delight (feat. Ryan Rossner)
On this extra special episode, the boys are joined by Ryan Rossner, the Director of Longevity Research at Minicircle, the first platform for reversible gene therapies. With patience and wisdom, Ryan leads our lovable idiots through the history of longevity and genetics research, explains the benefits of fasting, and details the incredible results of Minicircle's first trials. The crew also dives into the nuances of regulation, the experimental Honduran island of Roatán, and how EVEN YOU can become better, faster, and stronger. All this plus: Ryan's brief NFL career, genetic enhancement in sports, and Bryan Johnson's cutting-edge penis treatments.
