This week’s podcast guest is very interesting to us, and we hope to you as well. Brandon Sneed, writer-at-large for Bleacher Report and B/R Mag, as well as CNN, is also a published author of Head in the Game, and he joins Dr. McCabe to share some of his insights into the human mind and the effects that our daily lives have on it.
Learning his wife was pregnant with their first child four years ago drove Brandon to learn all he could about the human mind so that he could fix his and help his son if the time came for it.
In his research for Head in the Game, he turned himself into a human guinea pig to experience all there is to experience when it comes to diving deep into the mind, in order to understand what the world’s best athletes are doing. He had his brain scanned and hooked to a computer, trained in various meditation practices, learned shocking things about how religion affects our brains, used technology that sent electricity coursing through his skull, learned masterful breathing techniques from sports scientists who have coached Olympic gold medalists, he spent hours floating in sensory deprivation chambers — and he may or may not have ingested legally questionable substances.
Because hey, journalism.
It all coalesces into a single story not only about a revolution driving athletes into a new frontier of training, but a story about a revolution coming for all of us.
