What is Bio-Hacking?
Biohackers are people who apply the hacker ethic to improve their bodies by using cybernetic devices for recording biometric data.
They manage their fitness by combining medical, nutritional, and electronic techniques. Bio-hackers attempt to use the data they collect about themselves to optimize both mental and physical performance.

Essentially, bio-hackers are ordinary people like you and me, with 'superhuman' ambitions. They have found ways to lose weight without exercising, gain muscle mass quickly, fight insomnia, and prevent injuries. We, at Tekbotic, have compiled a list of the top 5 Bio-hacker podcasts so you can learn how to be a 'superhuman' as well!!

Bulletproof Radio is the best starting point when it comes to learning about bio-hacking. It covers many of the basics of bio-hacking such as nutrition, diet, devices, apps, and exercise.
Dave Asprey, the host, has spent a quarter million dollars on bio-hacking devices for himself and has in-depth knowledge. He explains things very clearly and in terms that are relatable to most listeners.

Now, this is an interesting podcast that deals with some more complicated bio-hacking experimentation. Jesse Lawler, who is the host, mainly works with neuroscience and neotropics in an effort to enhance the brain's performance.
He brings a less scientific and more holistic approach to this area of bio-hacking. Like Asprey, Lawler is also very good at dumbing down medical jargon so that we simple-minded folk can understand.
#3 Z Health
The Z-Health podcast is hosted by Dr. Cobb who's area of expertise is primarily body & function.

This list is not in any sort of order, otherwise, the Ben Greenfield Fitness podcast would have been 1 or 2. Ben is an athlete, a speaker, ironman, a coach, and an excellent mentor for applying bio-hacking techniques to your exercise.
Before you get scared away thinking that this podcast is just for people who want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator; Ben is actually very well educated in bio-hacking techniques and nutrition.
Each episode is packed with tons of useful information that is useful to more than people striving to be the World's strongest man.
Once again, another podcast that could be higher up on the list if I had done this list on a rating scale, Tim Ferris is one of the original bio-hackers and considered a pioneer in the field.

His podcasts follow a more traditional form of bio-hacking that explores the effects of success and debunks myths about fitness. He always has good guests on his show that help provides insightful bio-hacking information.
