Filmmaker and comedian Tom Naughton is our interview guest today in Episode 1460 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Tom Naughton began his professional life as a writer and editor for Family Safety & Health magazine. In the many years since, he's worked as a freelance writer, a touring standup comedian, and a software programmer. Fat Head, his humorous documentary about the lousy health advice handed down from official sources, has been seen on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime, as well as on television networks in several countries. His speeches and other health-related videos have been viewed by millions of people online. Tom now lives on a small hobby farm with one wife, two daughters, two dogs, one cat, and dozens of chickens.
Listen in today as Jimmy talks with Tom about his brand new film Fat Head Kids and the companion book, why he decided to tackle this project aimed at educating kids, the fantastic artwork in the film by none other than his wife, why they chose to animate the film and what that process was like, including his family and friends into the project, the biological starship, how Tom's understanding of nutrition changed from Fat Head to Fat Head Kids, how adults are reacting to the new book and film, and much more.
