Welcome back to the Big Impact Podcast! Bruce Raymond is my guest today, the champion Australian surfer, former CEO of the iconic surf brand Quicksilver and the recent convert of the plant based diet. I had the pleasure of spending a few days with Bruce down in Melbourne recently, when we both attended the Nutrition in Healthcare Symposium with Cardiologist Dr Kim Williams. I got to pick Bruce’s brain about building a surf brand empire and he got to turn the tables and learn what he could from me about reversing disease with a plant based diet. Let’s just say we both walked away pretty happy.

He has a great story to share, a super sharp mind and a pretty epic idea on how to tackle the food desert crisis in his beloved Hawaii! I’ll let him explain… Enjoy!

    So glad I stumbled on this podcast. I had the pleasure of being on a boat trip with Brucey in Indonesia in 2009, and that guy is a charger, and full of wisdom. I also did a full water -fast at True North Health and had the pleasure of meeting your last guest, Renae as well! What a small world. Thanks for this podcast. I am fully plant-based after a year and it has changed my life, so much, I started a podcast myself. It’s called Wild Ideas Worth Living (.. not just food, but all things wild). Thanks for these awesome shows and for interviewing great people!
