The late, great Rodney Dangerfield once said that he and his wife went together like water and dirt: together they made mud. The same has often been said about hardcore nerds and gaming culture; the costs of high-interest fandom are often unhealthy lifestyles, depression, and worse. But what if you could treat your own life like it was a videogame challenge, complete with leveling up, quests, and achievements?
In this highly upgradeable edition of the Popzara Podcast our own Nathan Evans smashes through the stereotypes and talks with Steve Kamb, founder and personal crafter of NerdFitness.com, about his new book Level Up Your Life: How to Unlock Adventure and Happiness by Becoming the Hero of Your Own Story, out now from Rodale Books.
Kamb shares his personal tips and strategies learned from years behind the controller and keyboard to helping build a bigger, better lifestyle through gamification and self-motivation. From fitness to eating healthy, it’s a peak into putting that unbridled love for all things Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and The Legend of Zelda into action and taking command of your own Heroes’ Journey.
It’s a podcast so powerful that you’ll get a bonus 300XP for simply listening, and that’s without having to face down Dr. Wily. How sweet is that?
