The Art of Manliness Podcast Episode #56: The Paleo Manifesto with John Durant

In today’s episode we talk to John Durant, author of The Paleo Manifesto, about how looking at our ancestral past can help us achieve optimal health both physically and mentally.

Show Highlights:

  • Why it’s important to not just look at the Paleolithic Era to inform our health
  • How religious sanitation laws were an adaptation to the Agricultural Revolution
  • How the almost cult-like following of Crossfit and Paleo Lifestyle might be a cultural adaptation to our modern, sedentary life
  • Does violence play a role in a “paleo” lifestyle?
  • John’s first deer hunt
  • Should we look to our ancient ancestors to guide our romantic lives?
  • And much more!
