Today is Zestology podcast number 52, which means we've been going a year. It's flown by, and been a lot of fun in the process. Thank you for being part of the journey, supporting me along the way, and hopefully getting some inspiration as you listen.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, as you know I always like to put myself in the line of fire and test out any new gadgets for extra energy. (I'm such a hero, right.) But this one I was super-sceptical about.
It is a crazy in-ear bright light energy headset called The Human Charger. I just wasn't convinced that a gadget that shines lights into my ears would do anything for me.
It sends bright light into your ear which is apparently as good as seeing it and especially good for jet lag and winter mornings.
The funny thing, despite my total scepticism, is I've been using this for a couple of months and for the mornings I've tried it I've felt a definite extra morning buzz.
So in the deep midwinter, I wanted to find out more about the effects of a lack of light in winter, how we can hack our jet lag, and lots more. Hence today's podcast with entrepreneur and creator of this weird headset Timo Ahopelto.

Imagine a gadget that makes you feel more alert, more energised, and helps get over jet-lag. We road test that very gadget, and speak to the inventor next time. Cool eh?
How do you turn the ordinary you into an extraordinary person of value?
Today's Zestology guest might well help us answer that. He's a BIG name in the world of podcasting. Jordan Harbinger is the voice behind top show, The Art of Charm, where he shares experiences and laughs with interesting people around the world. And today we cover these main topics.
Due to his work with various governments and NGOs, Jordan has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, speaks several languages, and has been kidnapped — twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation.
The super-popular podcast host and all round charmer comes on Zestology next time, here's a sneak preview...
I love reading and books and learning. I'm a book geek, definitely, but it just doesn't seem like there's the time. I often manage a book a week, but what if it could be more? When I do read I love it and if you want some book recommendations then check out my special book club blog here.
I'm wondering whether we can all up our reading and learning rate. That's where today's guest comes in.
Today on Zestology podcast, I'm thrilled to get to grips with speed-reading, and remember more with world memory expert Jim Kwik. Jim has shared the stage with luminaries such as the Dalai Lama and Richard Branson, and is a highly sought after coach and trainer, with clients that include Nike, Zappos, Virgin, Fox Studios, Harvard University, and many more.
