Mike Israetel:

In this episode, Iron Culture attempts to bring an intellectually honest conversation to the emotionally charged topic of steroids. Hosts Eric and Omar are joined by John Meadows (@mountaindog1) and Dr. Mike Israetel (@rpdrmike) John is a well known and respected bodybuilder, who has been open about his steroid use. Dr. Israetel attained his PhD in Sports Physiology and has a very knowledgeable understanding of PEDs (Performance Enhancing Drugs). The hosts will explore societal attitudes around steroids, discuss why someone decides to use and contrast lifting as a natural vs being enhanced. The goal with this episode is to give different perspectives on a controversial topic and highlight the large similarities that exist between both parties.
