Welcome to Episode 15 of Life in Focus! Our guest this week is a professional podcaster, until recently the voice behind Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint and Ben Greenfield’s podcasts, Brock Armstrong is also responsible for producing the Dave Asprey, Abel James and Katy Bowman’s podcasts to name a few. Brock was also the very first person to interview me in a podcast.
Although it’s just plain fun to put the man behind everyone else’s podcasts in the spotlight, the reason we wanted to host Brock is that he is a true renaissance man. A former ballet dancer, actor, musician in a Celtic band, and renaissance fair banjo player, his current titles include podcast producer and host, audiobook engineer, videographer, web and email developer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, athletic coach, and wannapreneur. Clearly, Brock is a man who knows that you can reinvent yourself countless times in your life. His philosophy? “Whoever dies with the most stories wins.”

- If you want something, ask for it. The worst that can happen is nothing changes.
- “Don’t get so hung up on the outcomes or the goal that you are afraid to make mistakes or fuck-up.”
- “I feel confident in myself as a human on this planet who has every right to do what any other human does.”
