Rational, Reliable, essential information
I found out about Dr Rhonda Patrick thanks to the JRE, I always love listening to her content, she like Dr Andrew Weil for me, is one of a handful of people who views and approaches health the way I thought all medical doctors should. She’s always putting out incredible content with the best resources. Every time I think of anything related to health I first search what information & resources Dr Rhonda Patrick has related to the subject and I’m never disappointed. She’s incredibly thorough, and extremely intelligent in her approach to researching and sharing information.
This Podcast Might Help Save Your Life
Dr. Rhonda Patrick is fulfilling an important need in her “Found My Fitness” podcast that has been neglected by contemporary society—translating the complex research of medical expertise into language that is understandable to the general public. The consequences of this neglect are devastating. The common person is inundated with so much conflicting information that they find themselves in a state of perpetual confusion. The typical reaction to complexity is resignation or opportunism—give up or cherrypick those pieces of information that justify preexisting preferences. Dr. Patrick rolls us a ball of twine out of this precarious labyrinth Western Medicine has in general taken a fatalistic approach to the ailments that are the consequence of its emotionally stressful, artificially nourished, sedentary lifestyle. The result is a massively expensive and elaborate medical infrastructure designed to mitigate and manage the effects of chronic disease. What is so refreshing about Dr. Patrick’s approach to medicine is her focus on addressing the causes, the “onset before the onset” of chronic diseases. In her podcast she lucidly outlines the science of well-being, one topic at at time, to demonstrate how each behavior and lifestyle factor contributes to our health and well-being. Whether sleep, nutrition, exercise, or various non-pharmacological interventions such as sauna, cold therapy, or fasting, Dr. Patrick distills an exhaustive body of peer-reviewed research to a set of fundamental truths for the listener to consider applying in their own lives. Perhaps most impressively, Dr. Patrick has responded to the challenge of the COVID-19 crisis by providing her listeners with guidance for strengthening their immune systems and avoiding chronic disease caused by COVID. Dr. Patrick’s interview with Dr. Roger Seheult on proactive measures one can take to bolster one’s immune system in the fight against COVID are particularly salient. Dr. Patrick has long been advocating for the importance of Vitamin D supplementation, and research into the importance of Vitamin D in the prevention and mitigation of COVID finds her message vindicated more strongly than ever.
Found My Fitness is amazing!
I have been listening to Dr Rhonda Patrick for a few years. I have used information to help myself, family, and friends. She always backs up her information with studies and data and makes it clear when she is stating something is a hypothesis of hers. She is a wealth of knowledge! Would 100% advise everyone listen to her if you want to take your own health and happiness into your own hands!
Love this podcast!
Please don’t delete episodes
It seems like some of the interviews have gotten deleted, which is a real bummer because I have wanted to go back and re-listen to some and also share them. It looks like you have more available on YouTube, but I really love the convenience of the podcast format. I also love all of the interview episodes and really appreciate you finding and recruiting scientists to be on your show! As a fellow research scientist, it’s nice to be able to hear about other areas of research in a scientifically sound and intellectual way.
Dr.Rhonda Patrick, thank you for changing my life!
You have changed the way I look at health, nutrition, and fitness. You’ve empowered me to take control and really understand my needs! So thank you to you, your team, and all the guests you bring on. -Proud owner of a Sulforaphane tank!!
Rhonda Patrick is a treasure
I love listening to these podcasts Rhonda is so good at making complicated things easy to understand and she has fabulous guests. Love this podcast!
One of the beat shows for health
I have been listening to Rhonda for years. I trust her professionalism and level of scientific inquiry on the topics she reports on. Rhonda has been one of the go to resources for me when it comes to my health.
My go to source
Dr. Patrick is my go to source for nutritional biochemistry information and reviews of the the latest and emerging research. She is smart but speaks in a way that is easier to understand. As a trained Dietitian, it is refreshing to stay abreast of the evidence based research and emerging trends in anti-aging.
Great scientific info by someone who actually does the research and understands it well. But the narration is just too fast, and even the interviews can be hard too follow for a layperson at this pace when so many scientific terms are thrown out. I’d prefer a more conversational pace. UPDATE: I started listening to more recent episodes (I like to start with older ones first), and Rhonda has slowed down considerably and is so much easier to follow as she’s adopted a more conversational style.
Rhonda is an amazing host!!! She offers amazing insight and information that is really helpful for listeners!
Get your note pad ready because Dr. RP brings it. She is brilliant and just spews information at rapid speed. You’re going to feel like you need to take notes and pause and rewind. I listen to each podcast Murillo times because you’ll pick up something new each time. Amazing.
I all of life enthusiasm can make the difference. From teachers, professors, to preachers, you’ve got to love your topic. Rhonda Patrick is so excited about research, it’s nuts. That’s why it fits me so well. I love a deep dive in the weeds as it were🤗
Dr Rhonda Pratick
This woman is amazing. Her knowledge is so deep and well researched. Dr. Patrick should be an iconic standard for young women and hell even young mean. She is a treasure.
Great information, just scripted
The content is amazing and there’s so much in learning as a doctor interested in functional medicine. But a so hard to pay attention to because it’s not engaging. It’s just words being read off
Great information, poor delivery
Rhonda has all the best information, but it comes with a caveat; She isn’t a very good public speaker and is especially hard to listen to when she’s reading something. When she reads, she makes common mistakes such as inserting pauses in uncomfortable places, using a monotone speaking voice, and robotic dictation. On top of that, she will often use a slightly higher pitch/volume which makes her sound like she is trying to command the attention of an audience she has already earned the attention of. It’s early in her career as a podcast host so I hope she gets this ironed out and can chill a bit and learn to speak casually.
My favorite doctor!!
Rhonda is my favorite doctor, she is so good at explaining things and continues to motivate me to eat healthy and exercise. Thank you!
Fantastic and full of information
Really detailed, scientific information. I absolutely love listening to this podcast.
Great blog not podcast. Holistic Health News better
Listen I have a podcast and I understand how this stuff works. She is reading her article. The article that she writes thoroughly researched and therefore is great as an article on a website or blog but it’s horrible entertainment value to read your article. No some would say that it’s not supposed to be entertaining but that is nonsense. The point of a podcast is to share content but to be engaging. So yes you definitely learn something when listening to her podcast and I don’t blame her for having a podcast because she’s going to make tons of money off of revenue from it but let’s be honest. She’ll be much better in reading her article but then adding anecdotes or funny stories. Holistic health news is a similar alternative health naturoapathy podcast. And that guy sometimes reads off the articles but he adds insight in funny stories and he shows his personality and charm. That’s what she needs to do.
Please ignore the snide comments about her style - she is not an entertainer but a PhD with a passion for sharing her knowledge with others. I have learned a huge amount and she has been really far ahead of the COVID curve. Her content is very worthwhile regardless of your interests.
Doodle Jump Adict!
Closer to audiobook than a podcast.
Closer to an audiobook than a podcast. Very dry.

She doesn’t sound natural
I first heard Rhonda interviewed on JRE. On there she was smart and funny with a delightful personality, which made me want to check out her show. I wish she sounded as natural on her own podcast. She gives great info here, but the podcast falls short on the way she presents her topics. It’s obvious that she’s reading to her audience instead of having a conversation with them. I wish she had a co-host to help her create a more natural conversation complete with personal stories and topical humor.
I love being challenged to learn things. Half the time I spend listening to Dr. Patrick is spent looking up words, but it’s part of the fun for me! Her hard work, along with her team’s work, is so appreciated. The science and research is trustworthy because the information is based on so much research, studying, testing, etc. 10/10 recommend
Great show with a pleasant host and entertaining episodes,thank you for the information and work you put out
She reads off a script
Has a phd from the elite univ of kentucky and does podcasts for a living instead of actually using her degree.
This is awful
Very informative, great it listen to
Really enjoying this podcast. She takes complex health and medical issues and breaks them down for the rest of us to understand so much better. I really appreciate her work.
Rhonda’s podcast are awesome! She takes what are very complex scientific topics and turns them into everyday conversations for the average person. Great work Rhonda!
Great content with no filler
I’ve been a fan of Rhonda since her first appearance on JRE. Her straightforward way of delivering her content alongside her desire to make complex ideas comprehensible without sacrificing detail is one of a kind. Her website is fantastic as well.
Rhonda, you’re seriously the best.
Rhonda, you’re seriously the best.
Are you just reading to us?
Annoying, I could just read it as fast too..
We miss you and we need your view on the Corona.
Really great info, thank you for doing this podcast.
Rhonda Patrick is a superstar—I’m so grateful to have found her. She presents cutting edge knowledge and the evidence in that field with persistent, clear, thorough narrative. I often listen to each episode 4-5 times..the material is dense, complex, challenging, and so rewarding. Thank you to her and her team for providing knowledge in an objective way. It’s all there for the taking, and this podcast is an invitation to step onto a speeding train of exciting health and longevity science. Hop on and hang on!
Stay ahead of the game!
Rhonda patrick and her guests are on the cutting edge of science. If you take your health and the science regarding longevity, pathology, and overall wellness seriously, you are doing yourself a favor listening to this podcast.
BEST podcast for nutrition, aging and more
I feel truly blessed that I can gain all these amazing cutting edge info from this podcast for free. Yes, it is not the easiest to follow but how can complex topics such as fasting and DNA damage be concluded in the simplest forms! English is not my first language but with time and patience I am still able to understand 95 percent of it!
Very cool pod cast
Rhonda makes it easy to understand yet speaks in detail regarding her medical insights and brilliant background. She is the real deal. Listen and enjoy! Healthy living!
Girl’s a genius!
Here’s a podcast that truly legitimizes the medium. Dr Patrick focuses on general health, longevity, and the intricate balance between health and human performance. Every human being on this pale blue dot needs to listen to her and apply her advice and strategies...if we did, we would collectively put and end to chronic disease...effectively severing our self-imposed, ignorance-driven “dependence” on big Pharma, big Medicine, big Insurance, and big Government.
Pause, rewind, relisten
Wait, what did she say? I’m not a doctor so it’s hard to follow along to the fast talk and terminology used.
Scientifically credible health and wellness podcast
I am interested in health, longevity, fitness and I’ve been implementing various “lifestyle optimizations” such as intermittent fasting, regular exercise, meditation, nutrition changes etc. so I have a strong interest in such topics. Unfortunately, many podcasts and blogs in this field are based on guess work and promote quackery and often outright refuse to accept scientific and medical facts so it is very refreshing to find one that has numerous interviews with actual *academic experts* and where claims are backed by scientific studies! Keep up the great work :)
Interesting but too complex
Doctor Rhonda Patrick sounds very well informed and she seems to conduct genuine research. The topics are definitely interesting and worth exploring. Unfortunately most of the episodes I’ve listened to have been hard to follow. The host uses a lot of technical terms and after a few minutes it is easy to get lost if you’re not a doctor too. It can also end up sounding a bit voodooish if one doesn’t have the background to understand it all.
My main complaint is that we’re not all doctors, so it would be helpful to dumb it down for those of us who don’t have a PhD. I listened recently to the episode on NAD, NMN and NR, and the entire time she said the full name for those molecules (or whatever they are)...it REALLY made it hard to follow. Why not just say “NR” or “NMN?” It’s incredibly unnecessary to say nicotinamide ribosome 75 times in one podcast!!!!!! The interviews are best bc the guests speak in normal words...solo episodes need some work!
Number 1 health and longevity podcast

One of the best podcasts
I look forward to hearing each episodes. The information is well put together and can be used to improve ones life. I have lots to discuss with my physician.
Dr. Patrick - thank you for creating this extremely valuable content. Sharing this information with the public is so important. We are lucky to have someone like you in the world! Keep them coming!
Please more episodes!! This is some of the best health stuff I’ve ever heard.
Richest content cutting edge research
I so look forward to this podcast - very relevant and always super interesting.
You are amazing and full of knowledge. I’m forever a fan and will listen to you before some of these other idiots chatting about things they know nothing about. #science #truth
