#56 Biohacking Apocalypse Survival, Stress Inoculation & Shamans, with Sam Sheridan

In an apocalypse, how would you biohack your survival?
This episode dives into answering this question and discusses all things stress-related. It was a blast having Sam Sheridan, best selling author of The Disaster Diaries: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Apocalypse, on the show to talk about a wide variety of topics ranging from endurance vs. interval training to Cooper’s Color Code and shamans. You’ll hear about the science and psychology of stress, the best way to handle stress, and how to better your chances of surviving an apocalypse.
Sam Sheridan was an amateur MMA fighter, EMT, wild-land fire fighter, cowboy, sailor and worked construction at the South Pole. He is also the best selling author of A Fighters Heart: One Man’s Journey Through the World of Fighting, he Fighters Mind: Inside the Mental Game. During research for his latest book The Disaster Diaries: Sam immerses himself in the survivalist and dooms-day preparation subculture by:  Attending stunt driving school;  Learning the art of eskrima (Filipino knife fighting); Participating in Cody Lundin’s (Dual Survival on Discovery Channel) Aboriginal Living Skills School; Learning how to steal a car with ex-gang bangers in Los Angeles.
A large portion of The Disaster Diaries explains the bio-chemical cocktail that our bodies produce during moments of intense stress (i.e.  an apocalypse.)
