Vitalis conducts Important Conversations with fascinating individuals doing great work; BUT, I find that his personality and perspective leave much to be desired. Many of his implied or stated beliefs, particularly his technophilia and his animosity towards leftist rewilders, lead me to question his motives. And let’s not mention his fondness for the infamous ethno-nationalist / eco-fascist Jack Donovan, who he will vehemently deny supporting despite recommending his books. Daniel’s guests, in general, have lots of valuable information to share. Just maybe take most of what he says with a grain of salt.

Blind spots are fascinating.

This is a tough one. I have gained a lot from listening to some of these podcasts due to the guests but the interviewer is a fascinating yet very uncomfortable example of certain types of humans who truly believe they are awakened and yet have blind spots the size of the Grand Canyon. Much like Sam Harris kind of a classic clueless white dude with a big audience. One of the most telling examples is that Daniel uses an e collar(what folks who use e collars like to say) an e collar is a shock collar. He says he likes to think of it as texting his dog. Interesting when I get a text I don’t get an end truck shock. A very clear cognitive distortion of folks not able to see clearly. Also look into the allegations of sexual assault in his back ground. Eyes wide open, take what is useful leave the rest but let’s not gurusize people.

Rank #2: Wise Interaction with the Sun - Nadine Artemis #52

bad and sunscreen is good. Not only is this inaccurate, but in fact, the
opposite is true: Our skin is quite literally designed to be exposed to the
sun’s rays, and sunscreen use actually causes a host of issues (one of
which, ironically, is skin cancer). Nadine Artemis — sense visionary and
founder of Living Libations — joins us to set the record straight on sun
exposure and goes over how to properly interact with the sun for optimal
health.

Episode Breakdown:
* Why you shouldn’t suntan through glass
* How sunscreen works
* Benefits of sungazing

* Why you don’t want empty vitamin D receptors

Rank #6: Trauma Awareness & the Spiritual Bypass - Dr. Gabor Maté #110

Podcast cover
Read more

Renowned speaker and bestselling author Dr. Gabor Maté joins me for a powerful conversation on addiction and takes us into the heart of where trauma originates. With years of both scientific research and direct interaction with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction and mental illness in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Dr. Maté offers a unique and authentic perspective on the topics of addiction, mind-body wellness and ADD.

In this interview, Dr. Maté illuminates how our modern society perpetuates trauma by fostering a culture of disconnection and dissociation. From childhood trauma to trauma passed down to us from the generations that went before us, many of us carry unresolved trauma that often materializes in addiction. Addictive behavior goes beyond hard drug and alcohol addictions; our society is wrought with addictions to things like caffeine, less-than-optimal foods and dissociative behaviors, such as watching TV.

So how can we heal and become the most authentic version of ourselves? Dr. Maté sheds light on some of the traditional healing modalities he has found to be successful through years of wide-ranging experiences. With lots of golden nuggets on topics like death awareness, spiritual-bypassing and authenticity strewn throughout, there is something for everyone in this insightful conversation.

**Please note: During this interview, we experienced some Skype glitches, so you'll hear a bit of echoing with Daniel's voice that was not able to be edited out. We apologize in advance for the audio hiccups, but we think the interview is well worth it (;

Rank #11: Why I'm Not a Vegan - Daniel Vitalis #94

Podcast cover
Read more

Why aren’t I a Vegan? I get asked this question all the time, and in this solo episode I break down the core reasons why I think we need to reexamine the Vegan approach. I consider myself to be a conscious omnivore and promote a Four Kingdoms approach to diet (eating from the animal, plant, fungal and bacterial kingdoms). In my personal quest for the most natural diet, I was a vegan for about 10 years. In this show, I’ll tell you a bit about my experience as a vegan, why I started eating animal foods again and why long-term veganism is an experiment and maybe not an appropriate diet for a healthy, robust human ape. In the end, I give a strategy for those who still want to see the world go vegan, and explain how they could best achieve that!

EPISODE BREAKDOWN:
  • The issue with “isms"
  • My personal search for the most natural diet
  • The two types of veganism
  • Chimps, bonobos & 3.6 million years of archaeology
  • The hand-raising experiment

Rank #16: The Hidden Cost of Veganism - Lierre Keith #143

Podcast cover
Read more

In past episodes of ReWild Yourself Podcast, I’ve explained why I’m not a vegan (ReWild Yourself Podcast #94) and, instead, why I’m a conscientious omnivore (ReWild Yourself Podcast #100). In my personal quest for the most natural diet for the human animal, I was a vegan for about 10 years, and The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith was an impactful read for me as I transitioned back to an omnivorous diet.

I’m thrilled to have Lierre Keith — former vegan, best-selling author and environmentalist — join us to share about her experience with veganism. Lierre spent 20 years eating a vegan diet, and in that time, she did significant damage to her body. Only when she began to introduce animal foods back into her diet — eating a more balanced, omnivorous diet — was her body able to heal and regenerate. Lierre also explains the destructive history of agriculture and why veganism is not the answer for ecological restoration of our devastated prairies and forests. This is an important conversation for all of us interested in eating the optimal human diet while living with a light ecological footprint on this planet!
