“Include memory techniques and education at all levels.”
— Dr. Boris Konrad

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we have a special treat, as we are actually joined by a neuroscientist researcher and memory competitor. In fact, this is someone whose work we have been quoting for many years, improving the scientific validity for everything that we do in SuperHuman Academy.

In case you've been wondering, our guest today is Dr. Boris Konrad. In the episode, Dr. Konrad talked about the research and he shared with us some interesting and surprising things that even I didn't know about mnemonic techniques and the incredible benefits that they can offer for your brain health and your life.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you are going to as well!

    I have never left a review for any Podcast yet. This is a 5 Star Podcast for sure.

    I have listened to almost all of your Podcasts from Episode 1. I am sad hear you are ending it at 300 and I haven’t actually heard the reason why.

    I have enjoyed Jonathan’s evolution as a host and the eye opening information I have gleaned over the years. Introductions to people like Dave Asprey, Hal Elrod and Steven Gundry to name a few have helped me grow and understand several things much better. Trying out their products has been fun as well.

    I didn’t always agree with some of the viewpoints and information presented here, like psychedelics in treatment of PTSD for example, but have come to understand more and more with the help of this and other information sources of how much an open mind into these ideas may help many sufferers in the long run. And I often suggest things to people as a result of this openmindedness.

    Every episode ha something to be learned and I am sure I’ll refer back in the future. I wish Jonathan much happiness in the coming Daddydom and hope for nothing but great things for his wife and growing family and the extended company family.

    Here’s hoping you restart in the future but enjoy the time with the important people in your life.
