This week we welcome to the show author, speaker, comedian and internet Youtube sensation JP Sears.
He is known for his satirical parodying of veganism, gluten-free fads, new age beliefs, and other "modern hippy" topics with his video series Ultra Spiritual.
JP has also been a life coach for over sixteen years helping people overcome their own difficulties and personal challenges.
Question we ask in this episode:
- Why use comedy to get your message out there and have you always used this approach?
- Did you expect this kind of response / popularity online and has it affected your life in anyway?
- You have a new book ‘How To Be Ultra Spiritual’. How do we achieve this?
- What’s your advice for those not in a great place (depressed, stressed or unhappy).
- You’re in great shape. What are your beliefs around nutrition to help stay healthy?

Hey, this is Guy Lawrence from 180 Nutrition, and of course welcome to another fantastic episode of The Health Sessions, where we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science thinking empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. I want to apologize up front first because it’s been a few weeks since our last podcast episode, but Stu had to go back to the UK, so we took a podcast sabbatical for the last few weeks, but we are back with a vengeance because our awesome guest this week is JP Sears. I loved every minute of this episode. [00:01:00] He is the man behind the viral comedy videos, and if you haven’t seen any of them you’ve probably been either, A, not on social media, or B, living under a cave, but becoming Ultra Spiritual, and he does an amazing job of getting a great message out there, helping light up the world, but doing it with so much satire and comedy at the same time. It’s just fantastic and if you haven’t seen any of his videos, boy, definitely check them out after this podcast today. According to Wikipedia, JP Sears is a life coach, an internet comedian. He is known for his satirical parodying of veganism, gluten free ads, New Age beliefs, and other modern happy topics with his video series Ultra Spiritual. Did I tell you I’m a bit dyslexic? I can’t even get my words out sometimes. [00:01:30] Like I said, this podcast goes off in all sorts of directions and it was great to see the other side of JP today as well, as we get into some profound topics, may I say it. The other thing I wanted to mention as well, we are offering, if you haven’t tried any of our 180 products back on our website, we are offering a 15% discount for all our listeners. That’s right, you can get our famous smoothie super food mix, our greens, the l-glutamine to help sugar cravings and improve the gut health as well. If you go back on there, we even got the new bars up there now, which we’re super excited about, and of course, all these products fit in with our values and beliefs, and thousands of people are using them every single day. [00:02:00] The 15% discount code if you want to take advantage of it at the moment, you simply enter at checkout “180 podcast.” That’s 180 podcast in the discount field during the checkout, and you can enjoy 15% off at the moment. Anything else I need to add? That’s probably it at the moment. Enjoy this podcast with JP Sears. Beautiful.
Hey, this is Guy Lawrence. I’m joined by Stuart Cooke, as always. Good morning Stu.
Good morning Guy. [00:02:30]
Our awesome guest today is JP Sears. JP, welcome to the show mate.
Guy and Stu. Thank you for having me on brothers. Happy to be here with you.
It’s an honor dude, it’s an honor. Now, mate, we ask one question to every guest on the show, and [crosstalk 00:02:44]-
Man. Short show. I like that.
Straight off the bat.
Short and sharp.
That is if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say? [00:03:00]
[00:03:30] Honestly, as that’s been happening, my answer that I’m giving in real life is I don’t know. There’s so many facets of what I do. I think the heart and soul of what I do is I use connection and creativity to help people hopefully live more meaningful lives. My rambling on answer is I make videos, I do a lot of speaking and performing, got a book. I work with different companies, help them promote their products with brand deals. All that equals is I’m confused. Do a bunch of stuff which is all fun for me at least.
