    Good information always
    Just have to speed through the (too frequent) parts when Elle interrupts and talks about herself, her story, her doctor, her friends etc… Constructive criticism: we want to hear the guest and their story and information. Maybe you can do some solo episodes Elle to share your story again.

    Used to be great
    This podcast was great a few years ago. Now it’s mostly advertising for various coaches and products. No real substance anymore. Seems like health and dietary conversations have taken a back seat. Just my opinion.
  • JoshCrist
    Entertaining, insightful and actionable! 🔥
    Whether you’re already deep into your journey of authentic health and wellness, or just getting started organizing your life around longevity - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Elle, Brad and the entire PB team do an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge range of physical, mental and emotional challenges we all face learning to navigate the transition to a more ancestral form of living. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

    Very Interesting
    I really liked Elle’s interview on Redman salt! I am now looking at making a purchase from their web. I really like this podcast overall as well!
  • roadtripgirl
    Elle needs to curb her language
    Mark is professional but Elle needs to watch her profanity and listen to her guest. She also goes off on rants.
  • primal347629
    Shows great... Host so so
    Love marks daily apple and the Primal blueprint. Wish the host of this show would use better broadcasting manners. Would make a huge difference.
  • PoeticRa
    Making light of COVID helps no one
    Very disappointed in how COVID-19 was briefly and frivolously discusses during the latest episode. Do better!
  • Hamstra22
    Not the same as it used to be
    When I first started to listen this podcast had lots of good health and nutrition info. Now it has gone away from that and has become more like new age self help.
  • Bpara
    Great show, could be 5 star
    Very informative, just wish Elle would let her guests speak more and share their deep expertise. Sometimes we just need to stop talking and listen.
  • Zarboni
    Great hosts. They ask all the right questions. Very inspiring, educational and motivating. Thank you.
  • Cee_Senn
    Great guests, but...
    Elle Russ is a terrible listener. I honestly can’t tell if she’s listening to people, because she just seems to say whatever she feels like talking about, which makes all of her episodes have basically the same content despite different guests. The Dr Roetman interview was as the breaking point for me; I would have loved to have heard what he had to say, but 15 minutes in, it was still all about her.
  • Erin Fall Haskell
    I absolutely love this community, content, and collaboration. You need to subscribe and listen. Brilliant guests and Brilliant Podcast.
  • MJR 1228
    Very educational
    Great material for anyone interested in a holistic approach to health.
  • T.RaeG
    Love Elle!
    I love when she’s the host. She has a great voice, has great guests, and asks great questions. Brad is good - and fun. But, I have a hard time listening to his voice and don’t like his interviewing style. Very informative podcast - every time there’s a new podcast I give it a listen.
  • DarrylPurpose
    Great source of health info
    Brad Kearns 5 stars, Elle 3 stars. I specifically don’t like how Elle coddles her more famous guests, and ignores when they say things that we know she disagrees with. Brad is a consistent and reliable source of cutting edge health info.
  • cbrown123
    This grates on me at times
    The content is ok but when Brad talks I have to turn it off after a while. Sorry Brad but you talk like you're a beat poet speaking like you're reciting a poem. Maybe that's entertaining for some. Who knows.
  • Kdelattre
    Great interview with the BMX guy!! You get such great guests Elle!
  • Logo17
    Incredible show
    I love the tactical, honest and real rawness Mark delivers in this podcast. I hit subscribe and definitely can’t wait for the next show!!!
  • chiroscc
    Could be a 5 star but.........
    Ellie does an amazing job with the interviews. Brad needs to learn to let the other person talk. He constantly interrupts the other person and gets them off topic. He does more talking than his actual guest. Not how that should work. He has plenty of his own segments to do whatever he wants.

    Primal Blueprint Podcast
    My favorite podcast to follow BY FAR!! I love the balance and variety of Brad, Mark and Elle! Their styles and delivery are different and each bring great content, and expertise in a down to earth, authentic yet professional format! I’ve recently enjoyed the podcasts interviewing and conversing with Lindsay Taylor. She’s real and relatable!
  • Starpawzz
    Anything with Elle or Mark - 100%, Kearns No thanks!
    I love all things Mark Sisson and Elle Woods is an excellent radio hostess. Brad Kearns however needs professional coaching. His stop/start, delay between words is so aggravating I cannot listen no matter how interest in content. Brad seems a great guy but he's not good at audio.
  • Janganambil
    Okay but edges on culty at times
    Was very helpful when I was working on my low thyroid, got directed to this podcast when was listening to an Elle Russ interview on some other podcast, but the slight tension in the conversation with Dr. Lindsay Taylor shows that sometimes the host is still a little culty about “being keto”. Not all of us need to have the “perfect” body fat composition (whatever that is) to actually be healthy. My soft belly is soft because it’s soft. I eat healthy and well. Just because I don’t look exactly like an LA model doesn’t mean I’m not healthy. She’s right, ultimately you want to feel better and move better. That’s the goal. Not the losing weight. Listen to Dr. Taylor and her message. It would do you well because you’re starting to alienate many of us.

    The Best
    I love you, Brad! Thank you.
  • TפL
    Just can’t do it
    So i read the details to what the podcast is supposed to be about/ but it takes way too long to actually get into it- the actual topic. I sit and fast forward but I can’t do the rambling and monotone voice anymore.
  • ZookieBaby
    A bit negative
    “Cuz you’re a slacker” I believe is when I turned it off. There are too many reliable podcasts to be getting negative “inspiration”.
  • Margie 830
    Game Changer
    The primal lifestyle was a game changer for me. Sisson’s approach is practical and healthy. Brad and Elle keep me motivated almost daily. They have interesting guests and again, very practical advise.

    Grateful Heart
    I have listened to every podcast produced by the Primal Blueprint. I was a fan from episode #1 to today. To all of you who create content, I thank you. I am so grateful to have a reliable source to gather my information from. You do an excellent job. I enjoy the different varieties. I appreciate the audio version of blog posts as well, because, I don’t have time to sit and read anymore than I already do. But I don’t want to miss a thing from Primal so this really helps. Keep up the good work! Grok on!
  • ErinGert
    Wish Keto was separate
    I love the narrations and the interviews hosted by Elle, but I do not want to hear Brad yammer on about Keto. I wish they would separate his Keto episodes so they don’t auto download when I subscribe.
  • reef190
    Love Elle Russ
    Even if I don't agree with all the content, I love listening to Elle Russ's interviews for motivation, different viewpoints and inspiration.
  • Joshua_Sommer
    Brad Kearns is a great host and easy to listen to. Tina Leaman has an odd way of narrating so I don’t listen to the episodes she narrates often. That being said, I probably wouldn’t do a much better job myself.
  • Golfhed
    Elle Russ - CJ Hunt
    I'm a huge fan of Primal Blue Print and Primal Endurance. I listen to everything I can, I've read all the books and live the Primal lifestyle. I love most of the interviewers especially Brad Kearns and the occasional Mark Sissons. I do get really frustrated when Elle Russ is the interviewer, she talks over the guest and seems to have her own agenda. In fact I had to stop listening to the CJ Hunt podcast which I was excited to see it on the menu. She would not let him talk, I found my self saying out loud "shut the F up". This is just my 2 cents and I'm sure there are listeners out there that love her, I'm just not a fan.

    Political snowflake - keep the politics out of my Keto
    The term "Emotionally Violent" used by this podcast to describe people of diverse political beliefs is non-sensical. The government is not responsible for your emotions and it would be tyrranical to expect them to control people who may say things you as an individual find offensive. The government does have an obligation to prevent true physical violence agianst its citizens. Conflating the two is manipulative and whiny as well as indicative of somebody who does not understand how our conutry works. Aslo a sign of a person who has no understanding of the history of nations that tried to act on a flawed idea of "emotional violence" in the past. In short, you don't understand the 1st Ammenment. Facts don't care about feelings. Leave your SJW snowflake borderline traitorous politics out of my Keto podcast.
  • Christian Segall
    Let your guests speak Elle.
    Let your guests speak Elle. Ask your guests questions instead of making the podcast about yourself.

    Some good content, but inconsistent
    Some of the episodes have been revelatory and impactful. I have subscribed for several years as a result. Elle Russ, in particular, tends to attract interesting and entertaining guests, and her style lends itself to a pleasant mix of spotlighting the guests and offering her own experience, insights and humor. However, a few elements of the podcast keep it from earning a higher rating: * The narrated Mark’s Daily Apple blog posts can be tedious. The posts were written to be read - not spoken - so the style in which they are written doesn’t lend itself to being read. That being said, they could possibly sound more natural than they do, even when they are read. There is an art to reading in such a way as not to sound as though one is reading. The narrators need help and coaching with this. Or perhaps the blog posts should be edited so as to lend themselves to audio. Or perhaps the time has come to jettison the narrations. * The “Q&A” episodes hosted by Brad Kearns tend to devolve into unfocused rambling sessions. Tough to stay interested in these... * I’ve noticed an occasional incorporation of political and/or social references and commentary, which taints the otherwise pertinent content for at least a portion of the audience (including me). If I want to wade into the divisive pool of politics I’ll seek it out. I think it’s out of place here and detracts from the valuable content.
  • JoannaDarling
    Great keto information!
    The episodes on keto with Brad Kearns hosting, is bar none! Very informative and encouraging, especially if you are starting your keto journey!
  • Break taker
    Trump bashing... wth!?!
    Too bad you had to bash President Trump! UGH
  • Jo-Ann Live
    Health not Politics
    Goodbye Primal! I have enjoyed listening to this podcast but today on the third consecutive podcast I heard negative, biased comments about our president. I listen for health ideas and I don’t care what your political concerns or ideas are nor do I want to hear about them from you. I am voting with my subscription to your channel by canceling it.
  • J. Barshop
    Awesome show, highly recommend!
    Mark and his guests provide some incredibly compelling content that’s geared to help you take actionable steps to live a healthier, more well-rounded life. Highly recommend listening and subscribing to the Primal Blueprint Podcast if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to improve your body, mind & spirit (and live your best life as a result)!
  • Tamdg
    Can’t get enough!!
    I wish you made a new podcast every day. I love the information presented from not only knowledgeable but also credible (like - amazing!) guests. This show motivates, inspires and educates and I’ve found so many other great podcasts as a result. Elle, Brad and Mark, you have changed my world! #primalforlife
  • QuezXLV
    Are you no longer doing Mark’s Daily Apple on this podcast?
  • Wellness Nell
    A favorite podast
    I have so much respect for Mark, Elle, and the whole Primal Blueprint team. This podcast dosn't disappoint & I've learned so much from it. Not only do Mark & Elle share their own experiences, they also interview amazing guests from various backgrounds, proving that they are not dogmatic and open to new ideas. I highly recommend this podcast for everyone, every single person can benefit from it.
  • Kdkates
    Great... until recently
    Love Elle and Mark, but the new host, Brad, is hard for me to listen to. He’s just really hard to believe and his manner/humor is very awkward. I’m not sure what it is, but I don’t think this role is a good fit for him. I’m sorry to have to write a negative review for such a great show. Bring back Dr Foresman! I could listen to him for days, and he’s awkward too, in his own way... just way more credible and knowledgeable somehow!
  • VickiTheVlogger
    Dr. Jay AWESOME
    I really enjoyed your host and Dr. Jays info
  • RichardMak
    Love it.
    Keep it going!
  • Armando_baseball
    Keto Reset Diet is incredible!
    Lost 25 lbs
  • Ampulaski23
    Great when it’s actually Mark
    Hate the narration. The info is good, but her voice and robotic tempo bores me to death. Go back to the regular podcast conversations please!
  • GreggITGuy
    Thank you Mark Sisson
    This is a great way to get my Mark’s Daily Apple articles along with the other podcast goodies. Thank you Mark. The Primal Blueprint and your continued health efforts have helped greatly in making my n=1 life truly AWESOME! Keep up the great work! :)
  • JjjjjjJjjijjHjhh
    I'm a fan!
    I started my Keto journey in June. I just started listening to the reset diet audible book. Mark is very helpful, and now this podcast that I recently discovered. I love this podcast, and have increased my carbs a bit. My life is transforming. I'm 51 going on 32... lol That's how I feel. I love this podcast. Thank you for all of your shared information. The chipotle mayo is one of my diet staples. Your the best Mark!!!!!! My essential tremor is gone. Body composition is changing week by week. I'm still 118 pounds, but it's beginning to become all muscle. Wish that I discovered this podcast sooner. Keep up the fantastic work!
  • Wholehealth_emily
    Fun and informative
    Elle is a great interviewer. It's easy to provide listeners with health information and research but she does so in an engaging manner. The guests range from mindfulness leaders to doctors to trainers and everything in between. I'm always excited for a new episode with a fun lesson to learn and an interesting conversation for my commute.
