Loved hearing about the evolution, and place in the world.
Also fascinating learning about the women of the tribal colonies, and the bias in sociological research.
Wow! Awesome Podcast!
I came over to this podcast because of Lyndsay's work on FMH podcast. So glad I did, this one is even better!
Every single episode has been so detailed & thorough, professional & very well thought out. So impressed with the depth of the topics. I have learned so much each time & listen!
Thank you for this great podcast! :)
(& this one has no Mormon stuff, other than quick references to the background of the host, if you aren't into that.)
As you would expect, Lindsay hits it out of he park with this interesting, enlightening new podcast. Love it!
