How to escape the human zoo, part 2 of the Africa Adventures podcast with Anthony Gustin


You live in a zoo…Don’t believe me?

Look around you…Synthetic food, separation from nature-> chronic disease rates skyrocketing, rates of obesity, depression and general unhappiness rising rapidly…

The same things happen to wild animals when they are placed into zoos! In this week’s podcast (Fundamental Health, available on Apple Podcasts, YouTube) @dranthonygustin and I dive back into our Africa adventures with some of the last hunter-gatherers left on the planet, the Hadza.

This is part 2 of this series, check out part 1 from two weeks ago…In this episode we also answer your questions about the Hadza and fill in all the gaps from our first episode about our adventures with them. #theremembering
