Yesterday I helped to make April magically disappear – by having a great conversation with an old friend. Stuart Tomc has been somewhat of a legend in the natural products realm, being a world-renowned speaker and educator for companies like North American Herb & Spice, Nordic Naturals and currently with the market leader in CBD products, Cannavest Sciences Inc (CVSI).
I’ll be uploading the epic conversation soon – it is nearly 1:40 in length – but first I wanted to create this blog post to index some of the reading and viewing material that came up in our conversation. Stuart is a really eclectic thinker and I always find it interesting to hear what he has been diving into.
We started off talking about the 800 lb gorilla in the room – the current Covid-19 outbreak and subsuquent quarantine. Stuart has been listening to TWiV – this Week in Virology, which has recently become a very popular podcast! I find it very eye-opening, and as much as I am suffering corona-talk burnout, this really gives a great into the science behind the pandemic scene.

Some other recommended reading (and viewing) from Stuart :
and he really wanted to make sure I included this video, a recording of a 1950s phonorecord of inspirational thoughts (some would say the birth of the self improvement movement) from Earl Nightingale.
Stay tuned for the full conversation and to here us jawing about the natural medicine scene, the future of food, nutrition, science, philosophy and more.
