AnthroHealth #32 - Dr. Perry Nickleston, DC - Suck Is The New Norm

Dr. Perry sits down with me to pow wow about all sorts of good stuff, the sliding scale of misery, why some people don't want to get better, why he wanted to quit chiropractic only 2 years into his career, how he got started down the 'crazy-shit path', why the most adaptable organisms beat the most efficient, why creativity is the key to success.

AnthroHealth #31 - Shawn Galin PhD - Cultivate Awareness To Improve Your Health

Shawn Galin acquired his PhD in physiology and biophysics, he is an associate professor of medicine at UAB as well as the course director of the endocrine systems course for 2nd year med students at UAB.

AnthroHealth #29 - Steve Capobianco, DC - Treating the Whole Human, Staying Curious and Being Freed by Evidence

Dr. Capobianco is a practicing sports chiropractor, treating a myriad of musculoskeletal injuries using a combination of hand and tool release therapy. Steve is the Medical Director for Rocktape, pioneering evidence-informed education development that challenges the status quo in movement learning. He authored the Fascial Movement Taping manual and lectures world wide on the movement based taping technique.

In this episode we discuss a menagerie of topics from fascia research, how to best keep yourself moving forward with the profession, different ideas on how environment at large may driving many of our health maladies and chronic pain, and oh so much more!

AnthroHealth #26 - Aaron Baker - Coming to My Senses

Aaron Baker is a recovering quadriplegic athlete, author, ambassador and friend.

Aaron was recently featured in a documentary titled 'Coming to My Senses', which is one of the most inspirational films I've ever seen.

In this episode we discuss how Aaron overcame all of the negative narratives that were trying to be written for him by physicians after his injury. How his mindset and attitude have been his best allies in making a remarkable recovery, and how he is fueled by the notion that 'HE CAN' so he will. 

Aaron captures what it truly means to be human.

- Are your hips really rotated? Does it matter?

- What role does lymph play in pain?

- How your mindset colors your perspective.

- Rewilding.

AnthroHealth #24 - Stephen Merritt, PhD - Paleoanthropologist

This podcast is a mirror of the story of human evolution, it is both varied and somewhat complex. Stephen and I get into the following;

Should humans being following the diet trends of our ancestors?

What does ancestral really mean?

Did early humans persistence hunt? Or did they hunt more like wolves?

What role has human evolution and anthropology played in our ideas of race and cultural differences today.

A bit on barefoot running.

This podcast easily could have went on for hours, we'll try to get Stephen back on the show soon!

"My research explores the ecology and evolution of ancient humans' tool-assisted carnivory. Eating animals and using tools to butcher is an important intersection between the diet and technology. The ecological contexts surrounding this change in foraging behavior have likely influenced major trends in human evolution — like brain size expansion and increasing complexity of food production and consumption. In the contemporary world, diet is an important lens for examining culture, human health, and poverty; by examining industrialized food production, it is easy to appreciate the tremendous technological power that humanity wields as it produces more abundant, nutritious, cost-effective foods. Precisely because of the unprecedented ecological power our technology affords, humanity must act responsibly as we control other species’ genotypes, ensure equitable access to nutritious foods around the globe, and mediate the human footprint on the earth.


The important ways in which diet and technology are intertwined in the modern world brings up questions about their origins. How did we come to be the top consumer in all of the world’s ecosystems? To answer questions about the paleoecology of tool-assisted carnivory, I conduct fieldwork at Koobi Fora, in northern Kenya, where the deep history of human carnivory is encoded in archaeological assemblages of butchered bone that date approximately 1-2 million years ago. At this time in human prehistory, Oldowan stone tool technology was involved in a dietary shift toward large mammal carcass consumption, an ecological transition that put our ancestors in direct competition with ancient Carnivore guild members. As a zooarchaeologist and paleoanthropologist, I use information generated in carefully constructed modern-day experiments to reconstruct the role ancient humans and carnivores played in the formation of fragmentary bone assemblages."
