Mikey Likes You is the health podcast for the underdog in all of us. Host Mike Catherwood approaches the world of wellness with a wealth of personal experience, celebrity experts, and his trademark nonsensical humor. Listen in for his straightforward talk about the most confusing aspects of our bodies, brains and hearts.

Episode Date
Candid Cardio

I am not anti- cardio. I believe it is tremendously misunderstood. If you want to compete in most sports, then you should be doing lots of it. If you want to look good naked then you probably shouldn't. When you do decide to do it, you should do it right. I get right down to the nitty gritty about aerobic vs anaerobic, heart rate zones, high intensity training and much more on this new episode.

Steve Zim - Hollywood Trainer and a Hell of a Guy

I met Steve Zim about a decade ago, when he began training my wife at his Culver City Gym, A Tighter U. I quickly learned why movie studios and professional athletes trust him to create the bodies worthy of big paychecks. Steve is unbelievable smart and practical with his methods, and he is one of the kindest people in the fitness industry. He now has a online portal to train you from home with any equipment, including zero equipment. www.atumobile.com

I Have Made My Wife a Muscle Booty Machine

I have been training my wife for five weeks. I don't want to brag, but the results have been stellar. I have zero problems promoting my skills, but my wife, Bianca Kajlich, does. She has been very resistant to allowing me to be her trainer. She finally relented, and she has been startled at how effective three short workouts a week with some practical nutrition can be. Bianca and I discuss our journey along with other physical, emotional, and spiritual trials.

Don't Do That!

I have often promoted ideas that I think are useful. Now it is time for me to say, "Hey, don't do that." Here I breakdown some things that people like to do, that I feel are useless or harmful. Happy Holidays to everyone.

But I Get Up Again with Jason Ellis

Jason Ellis is one of my closest friends. He is also one of the greatest radio performers ever. With that in mind, It's strange that Sirius Xm would cancel his show unexpectedly. Being a special and resilient fellow, Jason is ready to grow bigger and stronger in the face of this challenge. This is a man who has beaten the odds with courage, grit and a shit load of crazy. Please listen to our conversation about dealing with trauma, insecurity, faking it till you make, and recognizing love. This is a truly special episode.

The holiday season is upon us. That means NFL, family and bad eating decisions. I have tried really hard to find the middle ground between enjoying festivities and destroying my diet. I provide you folks with some tips to make it through the holidays as happily as possible. Plus, my close friend @culobreaker Rudy Cisneros calls in to give his some insight into his health and wellness.

You Can Lockdown Deez Nutz

Regardless of who you are and where you may be, the lockdown sucks. Now it's varying levels of suck, but it's suck nonetheless. Over the last 8 months I have made radical changes in my life and I assume most of you have too. This episode chronicles the practices that I totally think help me during the lockdown, and the ones that absolutely harmed me. Let's do it.

Question and Answer Plus a Hard Hitting Interview with My Daughter

I go back to the well of great questions that you all send in. Plus, I get a tough hitting interview with my six-year-old daughter, Magnolia. A lot of exciting questions are asked of my daughter and me. I think we both do a great job of answering them. Topics include Testosterone replacement, training through injuries, calorie deficits, overhead pressing, motivation, finding romance, good moods, and much more.

Supplements - Pay Big Bills for Them Powder and Pills

Oh, man. The nutritional supplement industry is a crazy one. Magazines, websites, and IG accounts are always trying to sell you on the newest pill or powder, that's purportedly the missing element in your health journey. The truth is, it's all bullshit. There are compelling products that can help you, and there is a minimal amount of items that can be considered essential. This episode is devoted to clearing up the substantial confusion surrounding supplements and hopefully aids you to make the right decisions.

High Anxiety with Bianca Kajlich

I try to be as open as I can to help people who struggle with similar issues. I haven't dealt with anxiety much in my life, but my amazing wife, Bianca, has a long history with it. She thought it would be useful to spend an episode discussing how anxiety has harmed her and how she has successfully and unsuccessfully dealt with it. Because we are husband and wife, we have meaningless arguments and quarrels as well. It turned out to be a delightful conversation, and I think you'll see why I love her so much.

Mistakes, I've made a few...thousand

I wanted to cover some of the most common mistakes. These are mistakes that I've personally made over the years and ones that I frequently see others making. These missteps can easily discourage you and I'd love to prevent or put an end to them.

Might as Well Face it You're Addicted to ...

I am a drug addict and alcoholic. I've always been reluctant to directly create content based on addiction and recovery, but I'm happy to talk about it if someone inquires. Judging by my DM's and emails, A LOT of people are struggling with addiction in some form. This episode is simply my experience and understanding of recovery and addiction. I don't have the answer or secret solution to anything, let alone addiction. What I do have, is a nice collection of successes and failures that can hopefully shed light on the subject. I will be clean 18 years in a matter of weeks. I am a dipshit. If I can do it, so can you. Cheers.

Somebody Call a Doctor - With Dr. Drew

Dr. Drew Pinsky has been my professional partner on the radio and television for a long time. Through our professional partnership we've developed a beautiful friendship. Drew and I get right into Covid talk and I sincerely feel its a different conversation than the one you're commonly hearing. Drew is not only a board certified MD, he's also a member of the media. Because of this, he has some of the most insightful views on how this pandemic is being handled. This is not a divisive, agenda driven hit piece. That's the last thing anybody needs. This is a thoughtful investigation of the radical experience we've all been having for the last six months. We also talk about how he is old and weak. Yeah Buddy!!!!

Maximus Check # 1

So if you listened to the last episode with Ryan Bader, you may have heard me talk about the 12-week program I am doing. It is from the "Maximus Body" by Bobby Maximus (aka Rob MacDonald). The book is fantastic and I recommend it to you all. There is a six month program that is very comprehensive and well programmed. There is also a 12 week program that is gnarly!!!! I chose the latter. Its 6 days a week, two workouts a day, for 12 weeks. More than anything, it asks you to really get to know yourself. Maximus, much to my surprise, offered to personally guide me through the program. I'm overwhelmed by how generous and helpful he's being and I definitely don't take it for granted. Here is check in podcast number one of my journey, where Maximus himself gives me some guidance and motivation.

I really enjoyed Paul and I think you will too my friend. carnivoremd.com

Sex is not a 4 letter word with Lora DiCarlo

"I see a world where sexual stigma and shame are erased and gender equity and empowerment are embraced." These are the words of my guest Lora DiCarlo. She is an entrepreneur/inventor that has skyrocketed to the top of the sex tech game. On top of her amazing products, she now is providing sexual health coaching through the WellSX program. She is a very smart, ambitious and accomplished woman and I had an amazing conversation with her about modern American sexuality. I really dig this pod. www.loradicarlo.com

The Real Orlando Magic

My friend, my former Jiu Jitsu Professor and one hell of a guy. He's Orlando Sanchez. It's always amazing to watch someone achieve greatness, and as an ADCC champion, Orlando has definitely done that. But this young man came from a very deep hole only to get back to ground zero. He's built himself into a healthy, happy person and I love it.

For Whom Chris Bell Tolls

Chris Bell is a documentary film maker who's committed his life to preventing people from suffering. He's a bodybuilder, powerlifter, addict and genuinely caring human. His vulnerability and courage have helped me and many others keep going even when the going gets tough. He has looked in the mirror at someone he didn't like and made the changes he needed to make. I like him very much.

Come on Ride the Train. Choo Choo!

Last Episode was all about eating and this one is ALL ABOUT TRAINING PUNK!!!! I fielded your questions and did my best to answer them. I also broke down exactly what you need to know to put together your best training protocol. It's time to confront your resistance and....Well I guess use resistance. See it's a play on words cuz we have existential resistance and I'm saying use resistance training. Oh never mind. Fuck Off!

Episode 14 Questions and Answers

It's been a couple episodes since I did a proper Q and A so I thought I'd do that. I put out the beacon for some questions on @mikeylikesyou1 and @mikeCatherwood and you guys came through with some really good ones. We get into my personal diet, food addiction, tips to control hunger, how my lovely wife keeps her physique and how to gain weight when you're a real deal hard gainer. I did a super sappy, glam rock/power ballad intro. It sucks. That's that foo!

Mayhem is Afoot

I get to some really good Q and A out of the way in the beginning. The topics are how to manage fat and calories with a high protein diet, the best time of day to workout and what is my COMPLETE workout routine during the lockdown. Then I dive into a very interesting and entertaining interview with my friend Jason "Mayhem" Miller. He's a former world class MMA fighter who fought for PRIDE, Dream and The UFC. He's also about 18 months sober and successfully putting his life back together after a particularly tough stretch.

Kevin Kraft- Let's Begin at the Beginning

One of the Co-Hosts of the Jason Ellis Show on Sirius Xm is Kevin Kraft. Very funny and clever dude who I am happy to call a friend. He wants to get in shape but he really does not know what in the hell to do about it. I felt like he was in a position that a lot of listeners are in, so I brought him on and gave him a comprehensive plan of attack. This plan of attack is designed for ALL OF YOU out there who want it, but don't know how to get it. I really hope you like it.

Take My Wife...Please

So I'm living that lockdown life just like the rest of you, and I got this lady who lives with me. She's an actress and she's amazing. Her name is Bianca Kajlich. Oh yeah, she's my wife. She sits down to do this pod with me, kind of as a favor. It turned out to be one of the best pieces of broadcasting I've ever been a part of. My wife and I field questions and dive into our mutual troubles with intimacy, putting pieces back together after a relationship ends, weird defense mechanisms and a better term for cunnilingus than cunnilingus. I'm really in love with my wife and if you listen to this you'll see why. She is vulnerable and smart and pretty and honest and blah blah blah.

Locking This Sh@t Down

I get goofy in my backs-house because, like most of you, I'm on viral house arrest. I touch on my struggles with sexual trauma and how it relates to a conversation I recently had with a courageous young Marine. Then I breakdown what I think to be the BEST AT HOME WORKOUT PROGRAM for the lockdown. Let's get it. YEAH BUDDYYYYY! - Ronnie Coleman

I do a little Q and A from the discomfort of my own home. Of course I give some insight into training and dieting while on lockdown.
