Must-Hear Podcast Interviews After Attending The 2011 Ancestral Health Symposium

We’re still away for a little while longer during my three-week sabbatical from working on my blog and podcast show. It’s been good to get away with the disappointing news about our failed embryo adoption and we are so grateful to everyone for their outpouring of love and support for us through this time. Christine and I have enjoyed just being together through this experience and contemplating where we go from here if we are to pursue having a family beyond the two of us. We’re becoming more and more comfortable with it just being us. We did have a couple more crazy things happen since I last blogged: my second-to-youngest cat Smokey was dead when we got home from Los Angeles this weekend and two of the tires on my car needed replacing. Life sometimes has a cruel way of reminding you it’s there. Trudging forward.

I’m excited about airing brand new episodes of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” in just a couple more weeks and we’ve got special back-to-back interviews to share every Monday and Thursday for the next few months. But since I thoroughly enjoyed my time attending the very first Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) held on the campus of UCLA in Los Angeles, CA on August 5-6, 2011, I wanted to take some time to write this post to say hey to the new AHS friends I met last weekend and to invite them to take a listen to my interviews with the superstars of Paleo and low-carb living. I met so many of the biggest names in the Paleo/primal/low-carb universe as well as many of the biggest uber-fans of The LLVLC Show who shared with me how much they appreciate the information that is provided here week after week. It was gratifying to know my work is having such a direct impact on the lives of so many.

In fact, most of the speakers and people attending AHS have been on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” previously or will be in the upcoming months. Since I’ll still be away for a little while longer and I had a little bit of time today to squeeze in this post for you, I thought I’d compile a list of the podcast interviews for those who attended #AHS11 (the popular hashtag that was used during the live tweeting that took place during the event) who are pining to hear a little more in case you’re already having AHS withdrawals like I am.

So, if you wanna listen to my previous interviews with the AHS speakers and attendees or if you’d like to listen again after seeing them in LA, then check ’em out below. I assure you we’ll be back with brand new episodes beginning again on August 22, 2011 with a fabulous doubleheader to kick us back into high gear again featuring the raw vegan advocate Durianrider from “30 Bananas A Day” (yes, we FINALLY got it recorded!) and Don Matesz from “Primal Wisdom” who recently said “Farewell To ‘Paleo’.” That’s one episode you WON’T want to miss!

      Seth is an interesting guy.

  • Hey Jimmy – 
    It was _great_ meeting you this weekend at AHS! We put together a video with highlights of the event. http://www.primal-palate.com/2011/08/ancestral-health-symposium-2011.html
    Looking forward to being a guest on your podcast in early 2012 – lets chat sometime soon to firm up a date. Hope you and your wife had a safe trip home.
    All the best,
    Bill & Hayley

      Hey guys, so great meeting you at #AHS11 and I’m excited to book you for my podcast in early 2012 when your book comes out. What a neat and happy couple you are and I look forward to many great things from you in the years to come.

  • Sharon Brownstein

    Jimmy, once again, it was great seeing you and Christine for dinner last Saturday night.  I am glad you finally got a chance to meet “my Jim” and that a great time was had by everyone.  Looking forward to seeing you and Christine next year on the cruise.

      Your Jim was a hoot and I so hope he can join us on the Low-Carb Cruise in May 2012. THANKS for dinner in LA. What a cool town!

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts from AHS!

  • Sonya Olech

    Awesome resource right here, Jimmy!  Thanks for compiling all this in one place for us!  And to think…. I only know about all these great folks because of your blog and podcasts! You totally rock!!

      Thanks Sonya! It was so surreal to see so many people I’ve interviewed in person for the first time.

  • Anonymous

    There were over 600 there.

  • What a great illustration of the influence you have in the low carb and paleo communities.  As I said in my blog post, you are one of my favorite paleo podcasters!  I hope you and Christine pursue some other options for expanding your family. I have a feeling there are some little souls out there who could use a couple of great parents like you two.

    I watched and listened intently to Dr. Robert Lustig from UCSF on the topic of Sugar; more specifically HFCS. I have studied and read a lot on the subject, but found his lecture to be very educational, very informed and while I’m no endocrinologist, I now further understand the workings of why sugar sabbotages our health. Thank you so much for introducing me to Dr. Lustig!!

      Thanks for caring about your health enough to be educated.
