My guest today is author and journalist James Nestor. He has written for Scientific American, Outside Magazine, The New York Times, The Atlantic, National Public Radio, Surfer’s Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, and several other publications.
James believes that the world has lost the ability to breathe properly. After spending years in laboratories and ancient burial sites, working with researchers at Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, and other institutions to figure out what went wrong with our breathing, he’s learned how to fix it.
From his discovery, James has spent the last several years working on a book called Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. It released on May 26, 2020, and was an instant New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times, Sunday London Times Top 10 bestseller.
Breath explores how the human species has lost the ability to breathe properly over the past several hundred thousand years and is now suffering from a laundry list of maladies — snoring, sleep apnea, asthma, autoimmune disease — because of it. James Nestor has traveled the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it, and today, he’s sharing that knowledge with you all!
