Show #297 – May 14, 2016
Guests: Dr. Gabe Mirkin; Historian David Herlihy
Two guests this week!
My first guest is one of the most knowledgeable and forward thinking people I know. Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who at 81 remembers more than most of us will ever know, discusses diet (and dieting), metabolism, fads, and what we need to do to maintain our health long into our 80’s, 90’s, and beyond. (If you don’t subscribe to his weekly eZine… maybe you should!)
After the break, I talk with one of if not the most renowned historian in the field of bicycles. David Herlihy, who has been on the show several other times, is always full of facts, anecdotes, and historical stories no one else seems to be able to uncover.
His 2006 book, Bicycle: The History was named the #1 book on bicycles by Outside Magazine; and, The Lost Cyclist, which we explored on the show back in 2010 uncovered an old cold case with the probable conclusion of that happened to Frank Lenz.
Now, David’s new article in the June issue of Adventure Cyclist Magazine, “Eastman & Overman” details the relationship of George Eastman (think Kodak!) and Albert Overman (who?). The story is rich in history and gives us a glimpse into the world of cycling from a perspective heretofore untold.
It’s a fabulous hour!
