Why I wanted this guest on the podcast, what I hoped to learn, and was this accomplished.
Mike Pullano is Chief Product Officer for ARX, a breakthrough in Adaptive Resistance technology and, if I am being blunt, one of my favorite workout experiences ever. Going to ARX is like stepping into an optimization laboratory run by the mad scientist Mike Pullano. Mike is a phenomenal communicator and has built a unique skill that will translate well to anyone passionate about an industry that the world at mass isn't quite ready to adopt. I have learned a shit ton on how to talk about the broken media business model by watching Mike help people understand their bodies and environment.
The nature of the universe is chaos. So we must build ourselves to be more than resilient, and we must make ourselves anti-fragile. In a world where everything is toxic, Mike helps lay down the guide to living well. Mike also did some time in the midwest, and I think he brings an essential aspect of podcasting to the forefront of our minds. He calls it "Podcast University," which he is getting at many people who are not around a community-oriented around health. So if this is you, you can find people on the internet who can help you on your journey.
One of my favorite parts of this podcast is where Mike applies his strategic mind to try and solve the homeless problem in the US. I found it absolutely fascinating and I think you will too.
