Listen ➙ The Truth Barrel, Episode 1: Mark Healey

In the debut episode of The Truth Barrel, Neil Strauss and Gabrielle Reece sweat it out in the barrel sauna with extreme waterman Mark Healey. He is a big-wave surfing champion, winner of the Spearfishing World Cup, a shark-tagger, a free-diver, a movie stuntman, and much more.

In this episode, they discuss bullying, and how that eventually led Mark to a life of death-defying accomplishments. He discusses fear, and how to use it to motivate you to move toward things instead of away from things. You’ll also find out what exactly to do when a shark is making a beeline straight for you. How to hold your breath for extended amounts of time underwater and on land. What it takes to make anything happen in your life. Where you’ll find the real heart and soul of people.

And expect some vigorous debate between Gabby and Neil, as they discuss: Did Mark’s biology or childhood experiences determine who he became. It gets intense, but that’s what happens in The Truth Barrel.

You’ll also find out secrets about Neil’s anatomy that you’ll wish you never knew.
