Episode 29: Phil Maffetone on Purpose & Music

Phil Maffetone running barefoot

Phil Maffetone is back on the Paleo Treats Podcast, though this time we swing well away from athletic performance and into the realm of Purpose and Music.  Phil has had 2 major epiphanies in his life, the first took him down the path of becoming a world class coach and doctor.  The second drew him into the world of music and songwriting.  

In this episode, our conversation ranges widely from discussing sexuality and what sex drive can tell you to looking at the world through the lens of a naturalist and how music has been integral to our evolution.

Phil is not your average running (or endurance) coach, and this podcast is a chance to see another side of the man most of us know only to be an expert in one field.  Enjoy this look behind the curtain in the pursuit of excellence.

Liked this interview with Phil Maffetone on music and purpose, and going beyond endurance coaching?  Here are a few more you'll dig.
