Podcast with Dr. Jose Antonio

Jose Antonio, Ph.D. FISSN FNSCA CSCS  is the CEO and co-founder of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. He gives an occasional talk, writes a bit, and can read your mind (but only after consuming copious quantities of coffee).  Dr. Antonio is an Assistant Professor of Exercise and Sports Science at Nova Southeastern University in beautiful South Florida and an avid paddler.  
If you want more sciency stuff, he's written over a dozen books , write funny stuff on nutrition and exercise on the issnscoop , give seminars out the wazoo all over North America and sometimes abroad, and have published a boatload of peer-reviewed scientific publications.

In this podcast, Jose and I discussed research. Some of the topics we discuss are:

1. What exactly is a 'scientist?

2. What does the 'research process' involve?

3. Peer review and 'post peer review via social media.'  What's the difference?

4. The Hierarchy of Evidence - are reviews and meta-analyses the best arbiter of science?
