Blake Griffin is leaving no stone — or plant — unturned in his new Pursuit of Healthiness podcast.
The six-time NBA all-star’s newest project has him sitting down with a host of celebrities and experts to discuss health and wellness, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The podcast, which has already been renewed for a second season by Audible, is the realization of a lifelong dream for Griffin and allows the player to share the many secrets he has uncovered in his quest to lead a truly healthy life.
“Every episode I walked away with some information that I didn’t know,” Griffin said. “One of my favourite episodes was when I interviewed Dr. Scott Smith from NASA. He’s the lead nutritionist and we got to go to NASA, tour his whole lab, the rest of the NASA (facility) and then I got to sit down and ask him questions.
“That one was special because we actually went there to do the interview in person last summer.”
Upcoming episodes feature conversations with Arianna Huffington about the importance of sleep, Michael B. Jordan on his workout routine and Chelsea Handler on (what else?) weed.
Handler, a long-time pot purveyor who said she re-introduced herself to cannabis after Donald Trump became president, famously celebrated her 45th birthday by skiing half-naked down a Whistler mountain with a joint in one hand and a margarita in the other.
