It was an awesome show. I heard Robb talk about it at PrimalCon Lake Tahoe this year and he said the experience almost killed him. Very interesting situation to be put in. I can\t imagine what it would have been like.

Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?

Jimmy Moore is the only paleo guru you need. Any more than him and you're pressing your luck.
