#71: Make Dopamine While the Sun Shines (Bret Weinstein & Heather Heying DarkHorse Livestream)

av Bret Weinstein | DarkHorse Podcast | Publicerades 3/14/2021

In this 71st in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. In this episode, we talk about trees and mental health and lockdowns and polar bears. Among other things. Does having trees outside your window help mitigate depression? If so, how close do they need to be? Does it matter what species they are? What’s so great about trees anyway? What about rivers or birds or volcanoes? Also: how do extended lockdowns affect teenagers in particular? What do we lose when we close schools, shut down organized sports, keep people from socializing? And: what do polar bears eat when melting sea ice keeps the seals out of reach? Duck eggs of course! Our book, A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century, is now available for pre-sale at amazon.

Om Podcasten

On The DarkHorse Podcast, we will explore questions that matter, with tools that work. Weekly episodes of "The Evolutionary Lens" are co-hosted with Heather Heying, in which we use an evolutionary toolkit to reveal patterns in nature--including human nature. Other episodes will feature Bret hosting long form discussions. Some guests will be well known, others obscure, but all of them are chosen because they have demonstrated unusual insight. The state and future of civilization will be a recurring theme, so buckle up!
