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 .

Dr. Lisle A+

I have enjoyed this podcast for several years. It has changed my worldview substantially and made life more interesting and entertaining. I believe things are going off the rails lately, with lots of banter and laughing. Historically, Dr. Lisle stays on point, which made this podcast stand out. Dr. Howk certainly provides some good perspectives. However, the recent episode where a listener was shamed for describing another woman’s appearance made my heart sink. Dr. Howk was almost dismissive while Dr. Lisle provided a brilliant explanation of why the listener had an “open loop,” and we did need to know about their relative appearance in that context. I am a little worried where this is headed, because I have turned it off twice recently due to rambling and laughing. This is just my opinion as a longtime listener. I do hope the honest feedback is taken constructively and that any new listeners go back to some older episodes if you feel put off by more recent ones.
