As we expand the scope of the podcast, he will be joining us occasionally to interview some interesting minds from the world of psychology. Today he interviews Jonathan Gottschall, a scholar at Washington and Jefferson College in Pennsylvania, who specializes in literature and evolution.

Barry raves about this book and believes it is a must-read for anyone wanting to learn more about masculinity, bravery and evolutionary psychology.
