I had the great pleasure of doing a podcast-style interview with Ian McCarthy of lifting for life. Ian is very well known in the evidence-based fitness community.

He’s been putting out great content on YouTube for many years now. You may already be familiar with him and his content.

In this interview, we talk about topics that you may not have heard from him before.

Topics include:

  • Mental health
  • Depression
  • The recent passing of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park & Chris Cornell of Soundgarden/Audioslave
  • Mediation
  • The role of fitness in mental health
