[26:20] The disk was put through a rigorous evaluation process beginning in 2018 with the incredible scientific, sports, and medical advisors that NuCalm trusts (from NASA to Harvard to the NFL, MMA/UFC, USTA, DOD, FBI, Special Forces, etc…)
[29:20] The third component of NuCalm is the app, and is by far the most complex in that it paces brain function. Jim talks about the cornucopia of software design and algorithms at your disposal.
[34:18] Jim shares his favorite tracks as well as which to use and when as you begin and how each of them is designed to perform.

[57:16] Sleep compensation with NuCalm, is it a good idea?
[58:49] Are the track options curated for me or are they random?
[1:00:47] Using NuCalm during flights?
[1:01:59] Using NuCalm pre-op and post-op?
