Andy Hnilo is a great friend of ours. He has an amazing and awe-inspiring story, which we fully unpacked the first time he was on the podcast, in episode 177. This week, we’re getting some updates from Andy on what he’s been up to, some of his most recent health experiments, and how things are going with his booming skin care company. We talk about the value of adversity and struggle and how these experiences can enrich and broaden our enjoyment of life. Andy takes us, in detail, through his recent use of frog venom to shock and purge the body, something he now swears by. He also talks fasting, supplements, workouts, and how his practices keep evolving.
