Fitness In Post

In this episode I chat with Curtis Fritsch about our pre and post-race experience running the Malibu Spartan Sprint. The pre-race interview is in the car on the way to the event, and the post-race interview was done via Skype a couple weeks later. We discuss a little of our training, but mostly we talk about the course specifics, our favorite and least favorite obstacles, and Curtis even threw in a great free plug for Shakeology.

In this episode I interview Chad & Brenda Walding, Doctors of Physical Therapy and the authors of the new book The Sitting Solution, a brilliant resource for anyone (read: everyone) in our industry who is sedentary for more than 6-8 hours per day. We talk about the health problems associated with chronic sitting, and more importantly, we talk about the realistic solutions to fixing years of chronic pain, as well as reversing the negative health effects of being sedentary. And even if you're already standing, there is still a lot to learn about staying healthy. This is a MUST LISTEN for everyone in our industry.

In this episode I speak with returning guest Dr. Michael Mark, a neuropsychologist and co-founder of NeuroEdge Inc, a brain treatment center in Southern California. We discuss the science behind how the brain functions in those with ADD and ADHD, the short and long term effects of medications and stimulants like Ritalin and Adderall, why less people are actually ADD than they think, and how the brain really isn't capable of multitasking the way we think. I also share some of my own tips for avoiding being overwhelmed by too much footage.

In part 2 of this episode I continue my conversation with Kylee Wall and Siân Fever about work environments for women in post-production. This episode was inspired by a recent article by Kylee Wall on Creative Cow titled Sexism In Post. We talk about why Kylee wrote the article in the first place, lots of different studies about the gender gap in post-production, wage differences for the same jobs, and we even go as far to discuss sexual harassment and other not-so-pleasant topics.
