Thanks for checking out the Paleo Treats podcast!  This is a show started by Nik from Paleo Treats back in 2014 in order to share conversations I was having with a larger audience.

Inspired by the feedback I had gotten from going on the SOFREP podcast, I decided to have Paleo Treats give it a go with our own show.

This is mostly a list of friends of mine, along with a few folks I haven't met in person but respect and wanted to share their story with you.

The show is based mostly on the pursuit of excellence, so whether we're talking to a fly fishing writer, a NASCAR reporter, a wildland firefighter, or a world class rock climber, that's the theme we start with and generally stick to.

I don't plan on getting rich or famous with this show (that's what Paleo Treats is for), but if you do want to support us then head over to the Paleo Treats website and pick up a box of the best gluten free desserts on the planet.

Thanks for listening!

On the surface, the story is straightforward.  2 guys become friends, start a company, decide to donate a percentage to charity.

It's when you dive deep that a story gets interesting.  TJ Ferrera and Sean Lake talk about the (way) back story of how they got into BUBS and what shaped them not just as entrepreneurs but...

-importance of experts, addressing the last show


Email from Mike in Flagstaff:

“I basically agree with everything you say, but want to push back just a little on your comments about experts.  I don’t take issue with what you say as far as it goes.  But, I do feel the general theme of not needing experts and that...
