The New Science of the Human Metabolism | Here We Are Podcast #330 w/Herman Pontzer | Shane Mauss

Ali – DO NOT USE #JUSTHOST – Do not register with #Justhost. They are cheap, but have hidden fees that are not even in the fine print. I registered with them and, long story short, found out quickly that I was going to have to pay $15/year more than was i thought I signed up for. It’s not the money I was upset about because $15 is very little. It’s the principle. I asked repeatedly to be directed to where in the terms of service or on the sign-up page it indicated that I would need to pay this extra $15 and was never given an answer. In fact, not only was I not given an answer, but in the process of customer service attempting to provide an answer they sent me to the website. Obviously, I would not have known I was agreeing to terms listed on the BlueHost website when I registered with #Justhost. #Justhost uses deceptive advertising tactics and if they are willing to lie for $15/year, what else are they doing? Do not trust them. I switched to and the service has been great.

Shane talks with evolutionary anthropologist, Herman Pontzer, about his new book “Burn” which breaks down the new understanding of human health. We discuss getting back to the basics of caring for our bodies while debunking fad diets and pseudoscience.

Thank you for watching and being an inquisitive being.

Stand-up comedian, adventurer and science enthusiast Shane Mauss has been interviewing scientists each week since 2014.
Originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin this former factory worker skipped college to become a comedian. His stand up has been on Comedy Central, Conan, Kimmel, Showtime, and Epix . In the age of podcasting, more people might be familiar with him as a guest on Trussell, Holmes, Kreischer, Vaughn, Maron, or Rogan

Compelled to talk about bigger ideas, he now travels to universities around the world (when there isn’t a pandemic) to interview researchers on a journey to learn what makes us who we are…as well as a bunch of other random stuff you never imagined you would care about.
Favorite topics include: psychology, biology, evolution, cognitive biases, behavioral economics, mating, animal behavior, neuroscience, entheogens and consciousness.
