Dr. Jordan Shallow and Killian Hamilton start off this episode of RX’D Radio by reliving some of their most interesting and awkward DM interactions. After some entertaining personal stories, the conversation turns to defining “the best athlete of all time.” The team runs through names of their most respected and favorited athletes, breaking down the criteria they value in an individual’s athleticism. We talk skill, epigenetics, and all the intangibles that create some of the best in the world, bringing up names such as Serena Williams, Usain Bolt, Tom Brady and Tiger Woods. To finish off Killian, Shallow and behind the scenes man, Kyle Lundy all conclude by giving us their favourites based on their own personal criteria.

This week we sat down with good friends of RX’D Radio, Dr. Stefi Cohen and Mr. Hayden Bowe who together own Hybrid Performance Method in Miami, Florida. Both Hayden and Stefi are two of the world's top strength athletes, and they use their collective experience and knowledge to educate and revolutionize the strength community.
Kicking off today’s podcast, the group discusses the manifestation of fear and how a person can adjust the mindset to better cope with and mitigate fears and anxieties. The discussion also dives into deep topics of gender equality and stereotypes in relationships and careers. Stefi speaks out on personal experiences of discrimination, and the crew discusses how evolution and natural selection have been impacted by the criteria society now uses for mate selection. We talk perspective, dancing monkeys, and when violence IS the answer to a problem. Tune in!

We're back with the RX'D Radio Docs this week as we dive into the topic of professional athletes. Specifically, Shallow expresses his rather strong opinions on the athletic career of veteran QB, Tom Brady. Shallow shares with us his theory of "Tom Brady as America’s Smoke Bomb," that is, Brady's mistakes have only to been deployed when the USA needs a distraction. Shallow and Jiunta compare and contrast Brady with Michael Jordan and even bring the controversy of Jeffrey Epstein into the mix. The boys share frustration over “certified body coaches” and what that credential - or lack thereof - really means in the fitness industry. Join in for a wild ride through conspiracy theories and good stories!

For the first time in over one year, Dr. Jordan Shallow and Dr. Jordan Jiunta are reunited in person today to bring back the rants that started RX’D Radio. After reminiscing on the past decade of their friendship, the conversation turns to discuss opinions - examining the “whys'' and “hows'' of the people who feel the need to share them. The boys discuss when opinions actually matter and differentiate between using those opinions to have influence versus have an impact on the world around you. Shallow discusses the age gap that falls into the blurred line between “old” and “new-school,” and how technology has impacted the development of younger generations. Jiunta and Shallow highlight the growing gap between power and competency in society, discuss understanding the consequences of one’s actions and provide us with some entertaining stories of discipline and consequence from their childhood.
