Let's look at life through the lens of our ancestors. Our instincts were shaped by their struggles in an environment much different than our current environment. Our instincts haven't changed much but our environment has changed dramatically. We blend the science of evolutionary psychology with the clinical experience of Doug Lisle, PhD to explore common problems and stumbling points in our pursuit of happiness.

We are live on Wednesdays at 8:30-9:30pm PST. If you have a question or comment, or maybe even a complicated situation that you'd like some advice on, feel free to call us live at 657-383-0751 or email us at BeatYourGenes@gmail.com .

Science > PC. Thank you!!

Love it. The episode on the differences between males and females was very interesting. As a millennial female, I get very irritated when people (particularly my own generation) try to argue that there are no differences between the two groups. Thanks for not dancing around scientific facts in favour of political correctness. It’s helpful to understand the basic differences, even if there can be outliers.

The Dr. Should read up on stuttering

In episode 158 the issue of stuttering was tackled and it was a fail. Stuttering, contrary to the advice is not caused by lack of relaxation, nor knowing what one wants to say, nor nervousness. Those things are precisely what stuttering IS NOT. In one fell swoop he spouted every silly and harmful stereotype about stuttering and stutterers. A cursory search of Google Scholar would have suffice to disabuse you of such stupidity. Maybe do a little research and not ad lib on a subject you clearly know nothing about.

Brilliant

This is an absolute gem. Doug Lisle is hilarious and has a very interesting take on many things.
