Brain Hacking, Consciousness, and the Science of Sleep

Episode 55Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast I interview Dr. Leslie Sherlin. We pick up right where things left off on a previous episode with Michael Gervais. Leslie is a professional brain hacker and CEO/Co-founder of SenseLabs; the leading innovator in brain training. We’ll be getting into how the brain contributes to the way we think, feel, behave, and perform, as well as what happens in “high stakes” moments, Leslie’s new App “Sense Sleep”, and simple exercises that will boost your productivity. There’s so much more I can say about this episode but you’re better off just pressing play. Enjoy the show.

**Also side note, my audio cut out at the very end which is why it is a little abrupt.**
