Podcasters and evolutionary biology power-couple Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying join me to discuss various topics related to their new book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century. We explore issues like niche-switching, what Darwin got wrong, Twitter, sources for modern values, hyper-novelty, the aftermath of progress, parenthood, and sexual selection – to name a few.

Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying are evolutionary biologists, former Evergreen State College professors, and the current hosts of the DarkHorse podcast. You may also know Bret through Joe Rogan or as the twice-moderator for Jordan’s debates with Sam Harris.

The couple’s book, titled “A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century: Evolution and the Challenges of Modern Life,” asks why the most prosperous age in history has scarcely offset suicide rates, tribal division, loneliness, and human misery.
