Daisy’s latest extraordinary man, Richard, returns to the podcast for a rambly chat about Covid-19, vaccines, Bets and a general catch-up. This is the first of a two-parter.
Richard is a 55 year old software developer and technical speaker who built financial systems to expose risk on Wall Street and has worked on systems from industrial robots to payroll. At 38, he was the public-facing chief executive of a major software component company when he discovered he had type 2 diabetes. At 40 he retired, to devote his time into learning about type 2 diabetes and reversed his own with the ketogenic diet 7 years ago.
With Carl Franklin he founded the 2 Keto Dudes podcast (over 250,000 monthly downloads), and the international Ketofest event to help popularize the intervention as a treatment for type 2 diabetes.
At age 52 Richard went back to school to study Biochemistry. He graduated in 2020 and is now working as a student researcher in a computational Chemistry lab working towards a PhD.
