Weekend Link Love – Edition 296

Episode #19 of The Primal Blueprint Podcast [1] is now live and it features a very special guest: Steve Wright, the leaky gut guy. If you have leaky gut – or think you might – and want to fix it, this podcast is for you.

Speaking of Steve, his excellent Solving Leaky Gut [2] will help you figure out how to fix your gut, improve digestion, and reduce food sensitivities. The deal ends on the 19th (that’s tomorrow), so act fast!

Also, I know that Mark is friends with Tony Horton. Perhaps Mark can chime in with a comment on where he feels Tony might rate on the “nearly human-like humanoid partner” scale…
