Episode 66: Very Ape

The Juvenile Apes Of Comedy™ swing through the branches of our evolutionary tree to learn about primatology. What can other primates teach us about cooperation, fighting, status, stress, gender, and human life. This week we will climb through the history of primatology to discover some of the egocentric anthropomorphizing that has led to a lot of past misunderstandings. Instead of butchering out-of-context research to justify the worst of human behavior, we can look to our hairy friends for clues about cooperation, acceptance, and fairness. Come monkey around with The JAC™ wherever you podcast.

You don’t have to wait until the Mind...
