PricePlow Podcast Episode Listing:

  1. #001: “Welcome to PricePlow”: The introductory episode

    On September 21, 2017, the team got together and filmed the first episode. Learn more about what we plan on doing with the podcast.

  2. #002: Optimizing Brain Performance with Shawn Wells

    Shawn Wells

    Shawn Wells is a wealth of information and a repeat guest on the PricePlow Podcast

    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!

  3. #003: Aaron Singerman on Business, Supplements, and FOCUS

    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.

  4. #004: Keto Connect Podcast with Mike: Supplements for Keto

    KetoConnect Podcast

    Check out Mike’s KetoConnect podcast episode with Matt Gaedke and Megha Barot!

    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.

  5. #005: IP Attorney Nick Gingo Discusses vs. Jim Stoppani Lawsuit

    In the fall of 2016, the relationship between the dynamic duo of 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.

  6. #006: Dallas McCarver, the Late, Great Legend

    Dallas McCarver

    Be sure to listen to our Dallas McCarver interview!

    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.

  7. #007: Mark Glazier: The NutraBio Story and FDA Supplement Regulations

    PricePlow Podcast #007: Mark Glazier of NutraBio (2016)

    PricePlow Podcast #007: Mark Glazier of NutraBio (2016). These interviews have stood the test of time, and are finally on our audio feed!

    In November 2016, Mike flew out to New Jersey to see NutraBio‘s world headquarters to spend the day with Mark Glazier and learn about The NutraBio Story.

    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 that are linked above.

  8. #008: Robert Tauler: The Lawyer Who Sued Enhanced Athlete

    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. This YouTube video was one of the most engaging podcasts ever – just check the comments!

    Much has happened since then, but needless to say, there are definitely far fewer readily-available SARMs and DNP on the market now.

    It’s almost like going back in time and watching a dirty boxing match right as things are spiraling out of control!

  9. #009: A Day with Bruce Kneller (February 2018)

    Legendary supplement formulator Bruce Kneller visits Texas in early 2018 to make a major career announcement, doses us with his new stimulant (still not out as of January 2021), and drops a monster load of information on the world, with several hot topics on various ingredient compounds (some compliant, some not).

    We also discuss how to Market to Millennials and the future of GNC.

    There are eight videos – click the link above to see them on their separate post.

  17. #017: What is Velositol? Nutrition21’s Todd Spear Explains

    Velositol Todd Spear Nutrition 21

    Don’t forget to watch Todd Spear of Nutrition 21 talk about Velositol on the PricePlow YouTube channel!

    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.
