Another episode with well known blogger Charles Hugh Smith of This time around it is less of an interview and more of a disucssion about reasons to be optimistic and a few solutions that you can implement in your life that will make a large difference. This discussion eventually evolves into a conversation about the way that I (Steve) eat at my house and the diet my wife and I follow.

To be truthfully honest about this episode, I really couldn't hold my tongue and be the one asking questions when the topic crossed over into diet because it is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I may not be a physician or nutritionist but I have plenty of anectdotal evidence, plenty of self-education, and plenty of logic to back up my case that the American Diet is the culprit for the worlds most expensive healthcare system (although I don't call it a healthcare system because they never actually discuss health when politicians argue over which system is best).

I apologize for the speed in which I talk when I get excited... holy crap. I was speaking at a pace that I have never heard before. Wow, I really wanted to cram a whole lot of information in a matter of seconds. During the editing process I realized just how blinding my speech cadence was. I can't imagine a trained host performing any such stunt, it is truly us amateurs doing the quick-talking.
