You read that right: The PricePlow Podcast has officially begun!
This is a new Podcast Series that will be done a bit differently: There are two interviewers — Mike and Ben — and we will each find and interview people that we personally find interesting.
As a supplement deals site that covers supplement news, reviews, and interviews, we’ll be keeping it heavy on sports nutrition, diet, bodybuilding, and biohacking – but we’re definitely not limited to those topics.
Available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and YouTube

For the video lovers, most of these episodes will also be on YouTUbe:
On September 21, 2017, the team got together and filmed the first episode. Learn more about what we plan on doing with the podcast below:
Master supplement formulator and ketogenic diet expert Shawn Wells comes on to talk about getting the most from your brain, which includes but isn’t limited to talk about nootropics, gratitude journaling, mindful mediation, and much much more!
This is a unique one because it’s actually very early into his Redcon1 days, and while successful at this time, they hadn’t seen anything yet, given the massive 2017 and 2018 the brand is having.
Enjoy listening to Aaron talk about the past, present, future, and give some book recommendations while he’s at it:
In the fall of 2017, Mike from PricePlow was asked to join a somebody else’s podcast – KetoConnect! Their massively growing userbase had been asking a lot about supplements, so they brought Mike in to see what was worth taking and what wasn’t.
In the fall of 2016, the relationship between the dynamic duo of Bodybuilding.com and Jim Stoppani fell apart, with the former suing the latter over the JYM trademark.
IP Attorney Nick Gingo from the Renner Otto Law Firm in Cleveland, OH came on to discuss the trademark dispute. Long story short: get a far better contract than this ambiguous POS:
In February of 2017, we had the honor of interviewing the late Dallas McCarver, who was just two weeks out from the 2017 Arnold Classic.
The two are joined by Aaron Singerman for a part of it, and talk about Dallas’ history, diet, training, involvement with RedCon1, and getting ready for the 2017 season. We are honored to have been able to speak with such an amazing individual, who passed far too early. Rest in peace, Dallas.
We discuss several topics shown in the videos below. They mostly revolve around the FDA’s supplement industry regulations, Mark’s creation of the NutraBio company and brand, and how he complies with the letter of the law.
The plant tour videos shown below are omitted from the audio feed, but note that those videos are now out of date since NutraBio has scaled operations up. Time to get back over to NJ!
This audio feed was based upon several videos:
The laws that all supplement companies must follow:
The NutraBio Plant Tour
- Step 1 – Incoming Ingredient Verification:
- Step 2 – Precision Supplement Blending:
Will Donald Trump’s FDA Regulate Supplements?
Whey Protein Scams
Mike and Mark Glazier’s Fixes for the Supplement Industry:
In February of 2018, Mike interviewed Robert Tauler of the Tauler Smith LLP law firm in Los Angeles, CA. Tauler Smith represented Nutrition Distribution LLC, the company that was suing Enhanced Athlete over SARMs and DNP.
Much has happened since then, but needless to say, there are definitely far fewer readily-available SARMs and DNP on the market now.
Behold, one of the most “engaging” videos ever on the PricePlow YouTube channel:
It’s almost like going back in time and watching a dirty boxing match right as things are spiraling out of control!

Mike invites Mark Glazier of NutraBio back onto the podcast (via Skype) in 2018 to discuss Mark’s trip to Washington D.C., where he was lobbying Congress for better protein labeling laws. They discuss the loopholes available and how some of the bad actors in the industry were getting out of lawsuits, especially ones regarding amino acid protein spiking.

#017: What is Velositol? Nutrition21’s Todd Spear Explains
Todd Spear of Nutrition 21 explains what VELOSITOL is, and he and Mike have a discussion about the high-end compounds he and his team have been developing and researching.
In short, Velositol is a combination of a Chromium complex and amylopectin starch that induces a kick of insulin and lets the chromium prolong the entry of the protein into the cell.
Want to get more out of every gram of protein you consume? Then you’re going to want to listen to this. This is the science that goes on behind the scenes that makes your supplements as powerful as they are.
Video: Mike and Todd Spear Discuss Velositol
Get ready for a high-energy discussion with Matt Mosman of EndurElite, where we introduced Matt and covered his background, and then got into the Best Supplements for Endurance Athletes!
Quite a bit of knowledge dropped here, as we discuss things like carbohydrates, beta alanine, caffeine, creatine, PeakO2, betaine, taurine, and even fat adaptation for ultra endurance athletes!
Video: Meet Matt Mosman and Talking Endurance Supplements
The YouTube Videos were broken into two sections, but the audio feed is one segment:
In May of 2019, we had a special episode for two reasons: first, the one-of-a-kind Dave Palumbo of RXMuscle and Species Nutrition joined us, and we got to some other stuff he does, including snake breeding!
But also, this was the first episode with Ben Kane on as co-host. You will remember Ben from episode #010, and he’s on for many of the future episodes!

In June of 2019, we had The Guerrilla Chemist on the PricePlow Podcast after the successful release of Chemix Pre Workout and Beast Super Test MAX, both of which formulated by “TGC”. We get into his background a bit, and then he teases Neuro Beast, which we downright love!

On October 22nd, 2019 Australia’s TGA released a new “Consultation”, outlining proposed amendments to the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. This proposed amendment would make most supplements under the regulation of the TGA, similar to the FDA’s drug office in the USA.
We sat down with Joseph Mencel of Massive Joe’s to hear his thoughts. As a major importer, distributor, retailer, and someone with a legal background in Australia, he offers a unique point of view in the discussion. Joe is traveling so please forgive the lapses in connection.
