🚀 The Podcast in 3 Sentences
- It’s about the question of why we sleep. Fascinating how biology works and what sleep does to us if we get plenty, and what happens when we don’t
- What is detrimental to your sleep, and how does this work?
- What is good for your sleep, and why?
After listening to many interviews with Matthew Walker, I liked this one. Matt and Andrew are scientists, so the talk also gets scientific input from Andrew. Very cool.
How I Discovered It
Rereading “Why we sleep?” made me decide to check for interviews, and I was happy that Andrew Huberman did a podcast.
Who Should Read It?
Everybody sleeps. It is one of the main drivers next to food, hydration, reproduction, and oxygen. So this is for everyone; however, I can imagine this is a bit more of a science talk, so if you’re into that. Great podcast!

✍️ My Top 3 Quotes
- Melatonin is the hormone that fires the starting gun of sleep but has little to do with sleep quality.
- Cafeïne sticks to the same receptors as Adenosine. There are limited receptors, so it’s like a chair dance where cafeïne takes all the chairs and ensures you do not feel tired.
- If you had a bad night of sleep, do nothing! Keep rhythm.
