What’s the purpose of life? How do we find happiness? What is happiness? We discuss real life situations to find what we need to do to find happiness. To do this, we have to sometimes go against our instincts. This is called “beating your genes”. Listen as I, Nate G, your host, talks with Dr. Doug LIsle, evolutionary psychologist, about life, love, relationships, and most importantly finding happiness in the modern world. We are live on Wednesdays at 8:30pm – 9:30pm PST. If you have a question or comment, or maybe even a complicated situation that you’d like some advice on, feel free to call us live at 657-383-0751 or email us at [email protected]

**************************************************

If you’ve ever had a dating experience where you felt you coudn’t control yourself or the eventual outcome, that was your genes compelling you to behave in a certain way. This is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you can be optimizing your genes surviving but on the other hand, it may be detrimental to long-term happiness.

We have evolved to enjoy the pursuit of love & sex through dating and relationships. In this episode we discuss how we can optimize happiness in this area by beating our genes.
