Well hello everyone!
Well hello everyone!
A few weeks ago, Fr. Anthony Perkins, an Orthodox Christian priest who's into paleo, invited me to be a guest on his podcast. I had never heard of him, but I soon saw that he'd been interviewed on "Ask Bryan" Davis's podcast show, Doc Fermento Discovers the World, where I've been interviewed before as well. I listened to the show and he sounded pretty legit so I accepted. Turns out he's a great conversation partner.
If you would like to listen to the podcast, I would recommend right-clicking right here to download it, or heading over to view the show notes and listening to it online here:
The interview deals in part with Orthodox Christianity and spirituality, but also contains a lot of straight nutrition and health. Based on past discussions here I'm guessing some of you may appreciate this and some may want to skip it. Please note that the interview doesn't begin until 23 minutes into the show, and those of you who want to listen to the interview but are averse to Sunday sermons may want to skip ahead to that point.
