Ok... listen people. This might just be the most important conversation in a podcast that I have this entire year - and one of the most important podcasts you listen to as well. Chris and I address the MASSIVE health care problem we're facing with the progression of chronic disease. It's a problem that could bankrupt our country within the next 35-40 years. Yes, it's that big. Yes, it's that serious. But don't worry, we talk about some really awesome, progressive potential solutions too.

Later in the conversation, Chris gives us a peek inside of his personal life, giving us a chance to learn from some of the strategies he's adopted to keep his life happy, healthy, productive and balanced.

Hope you get as much out of this conversation as I did!
