First-Line Fridays | The Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century

This week I’m sharing the enticing first line from a treasured book, The Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide To The 21st Century: Evolution and the Challenges of Modern Life, a collaborative effort by married couple Heather E. Heying and Bret Weinstein.

Although I don’t know them personally, I feel as though I do, after spending endless hours watching their fascinating and educational DarkHorse Duo podcast throughout the pandemic.

Science, data, truth, and the bravery to speak it to power in the face of a vitriolic mob, makes Bret and Heather heroes of these crazy times. Without their sense-making and calming presentation, these dark years would have been a lot longer for me.

Watch for my Peachy Books MEme Collection tribute to this long-awaited best seller later in the week.


Here is a twenty minute clip from Bret and Heather’s DarkHorse Duo podcast, where they discuss their new book.
