Episode 184: Pat Davidson - Whats New? MASS 3, Reckoning 2, and Costa Rica Retreat

Firstly - My audio sucks dick on this episode - I was in between laptops at the time and the audio on my end didn't come out great. I fucked up the mic set up. Pat is crystal clear, and really that's all that matters.

Also you will hear me chopping some vegetables for a few minutes mid-way through the episode (27:00 to approximately 38:00) and because I was unaware of how the laptop I was using at the time was functioning regarding the audio set up - it picked up the sound of me preparing my meal. But fuck it the content of the conservation was too good for me not to post this episode. I have since sorted the audio and have acquired a quality mic, and since this episode the audio for all episodes since has been excellent. 


On this episode Pat and I discuss:

  • Whats new with him
  • MASS 3
  • We discuss the use of RPEs
  • I ask Pat about the withdrawal from completing MASS 2 and how he will consider this for MASS 3
  • I ask Pat - how was the Reckoning 2
  • Pat discusses how we as a specific are reducing our allostatic capabilities by making our environments too comfortable 
  • I ask Pat - How was the retreat at Ben House's Wellness Centre in Costa Rica
  • I ask Pat what was he currently reading at the time of this recording


This was an outstanding episode and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

Stay Strong,
