Who is Andrew Huberman?
Andrew Huberman, 48, is an associate professor of ophthalmology and neurology at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. He has been at the institution since 2016. Prior to that, from 2011 to 2015, he was a professor at the University of California, San Diego.
According to its website, he started The Huberman Lab podcast in 2021 and it is frequently ranked among the top 10 podcasts worldwide. However, according to The Sun, it was among the top 10 podcasts on Spotify and Apple in the US for 2023.
What is the Andrew Huberman controversy?
In a recent expose, New York Magazine revealed Huberman’s double life as a wellness advocate—one that encourages both physical and mental health—while also acting strangely around friends and acquaintances and secretly dating five different women at once—who all connected through a group chat.
Among the many charges, he was accused by one of his ex-partners of telling her that being together with her was like “bobbing for apples in faeces.”
The woman, Sarah (name changed), presented various charges against Huberman, including specifics about his anger issues and her suspicion that she caught HPV (Human papillomavirus), a sexually transmitted disease, from him. According to his office, Huberman has never had a positive HPV test.
After speaking with several women who said they were seeing Huberman simultaneously, The New York Magazine learned that the neuroscientist had flown one of them to his California home and had a serious conversation about a relationship with another, all the while having his live-in girlfriend awaiting him back in Berkeley.
Sarah said to the publication that during their camping vacation together, she discovered Huberman messaging a different woman about commitment. At the same time, he was frequently injecting her for in-vitro fertilisation since they were attempting to have a child together.
