#10: Derek McCormick - Tea Time With the Reaper
Derrick McCormick invents weight-equipment designed to make you uncomfortable, wears sunglasses indoors and trains like a maniac. He can tell you the difference between weight and load or how the mechanical and electrical aspects of the human body overlap. But none of that currently rates very high on his priority list compared to honoring Angela, taken from him too soon. His book, Tea Time with the Reaper, goes beyond their relationship to discuss how little we think about our own mortality, the failings of our medical system and how to better treat the ones we love. On the birthday of host Chris Bell’s decease brother, Mad Dog, Derrick stops by Muscle Beach Studios to drop some uncomfortable truth about the ways we live and die.

Instead of writing code he’s taking blood tests – lots of them – to investigate cholesterol in a world increasingly open to a low-carb, fat-fueled, lifestyle and curious about long-term health trade-offs.
