Episode 23

Surprise! In this episode we actually talk about breath stuff.  Specifically, Brian and I go deep on the breath factors that drive HRV and what some recent studies show on the subject.

Put on your nerd glasses and strap in for an episode all about HRV science.

(Don’t worry, we still talk a bit of smack as usual.)
