    Great episode Shemane.
    Dr. Gupta is so right about so many things. Of the many things I do, being a cyclist and mountain biker are part of what I call my “Head Cleansing” and Dr. Gupta has given me a view into what is holding me back from performing better. I will have to learn to put into practice what he says. Thanks for the fine episode!

    I’m so surprised to hear that you used to race motocross!! Holy crap!! Do you still ride? I’m a motorcycle nut, another one of my “cleansing” methods. Very good for the soul.

    I do a podcast also and it’s Motorcycle Based. Well I could go on and on about motorcycles and riding and how therapeutic that is, but I just wanted to let you know that I’ve listened to all of your episodes and they are fantastic. Keep up the good work. I’m learning a lot too.
