This week we talk about your health on two fronts: the dangers of not getting enough sleep and the health benefits of going to the sauna. We provide a brief summary of Joe Rogan’s mind-blowing podcast with Matthew Walker, and we share our sauna bathing experiences in Canada and Germany. Last but not least, we define the trending #IntellectualDarkWeb by reviewing the facts.
