Dr. Brodie Ramin is a primary care and addictions physician based in Ottawa, Canada, and the author of a new book titled "The Perfect Medicine: How running makes us healthier and happier."
In his medical practice, Brodie uses exercise as a tool to improve the physical and mental health of his patients, and as his book title suggests, he's a big fan of running and the benefits it provides.
The former distance runner in me had a great time chatting with Brodie about this subject — from the right "dose" of running to how running is scientifically proven to improve so many health factors.

Ep 375: What becoming a father has revealed to Adam Schafer of Mind Pump
49:51This week, I welcome Adam Schafer of the Mind Pump podcast to the show. The Mind Pump podcast is one of the biggest, most popular fitness podcasts in the world, and after Adam became a father a couple of years ago, all three hosts are now dads. Adam has always been very open and honest on the show about the fact that his own father committed suicide when Adam was just 7 years old, and after that, Adam's home life was often troubled. Now that Adam is a father, I wanted to dive in with him on what has been revealed to him that perhaps he didn't quite understand before. Of course, Adam and I get into the fitness industry and the work he and the Mind Pump guys are doing to battle all the misinformation and garbage advice in the space. Check out all things Mind Pump at https://www.mindpumpmedia.com, and follow Adam on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/mindpumpadam.
Ep 374: Removing the obstacles that are keeping you from being fitter, with Mike Baiocco
32:02When it comes to fitness and health, what works for one person doesn't always work for another. My guest this week, Mike Baiocco, knows this well. For many, going to a gym is an integral part of their fitness routine. But for Mike, he gave it a shot, and it just didn't click for him. So, he went about finding other ways to fit fitness into his schedule, creating a regimen that works for him and can potentially inspire others who experience the same frustrations. Connect with Mike and his awesome workouts at https://instagram.com/michael_baiocco.
