do you not enjoy a christmas present a you know a videos of of once crippled orphans you know suddenly being able to walk i dunno i dunno it get you off but not to worry 'cause next week is gonna be a long rant it's gonna be it's gonna be gross but also amazing so get excited for that 'em on today's episode doctor chris ryan really interesting smart guy i so enjoy talking to him he's written a new york times bestseller sex at dawn which is sort of like the preeminent book on sort of sexuality and are evolution over you know out of millions of years probably and 'em and he actually has a new book coming out this fall called civilized to death he say a he's a just a brilliant guy and i think you'll really enjoy it and and i love talking to him so here's chris here we are at this here we are in anger are you are you here a lot in like in the house a yeah probably half the year yeah you know if if you worked at all out it's a home base i i never really you know when i think about home it's my whole life it's been like a base of operations you know wherever i lifted it's been maybe half year 'cause i move around off what inspired sort of the the scarlet joe vance in like the the sort of be the no matic life these sort of embraced well along time ago a when i just finished my phd so this is like two thousand two or three maybe a i was invited to resent the research at a conference in vegas is remains the only time i've ever been to vegas really and it was august every member and it was at the biggest swingers convention in the world little what's that gone so the lifestyles convention i think a three thousand couples in one hotel room that's a lot of fucking and does a lot of fucking yeah anyway so 'cause my my research was on sexuality in pre history and 'em in my i was in la with my wife and my buddy who's a surfer and a lifeguard said why don't you take my man you know you guys can check out death valley and hang out a little bit yeah and he didn't need it and so we took his van and it was a piece of shit van it actually broke down in death valley and i remember were on the highway the van stalls stalls out i sort of coast down this exit ramp and pull off into the desert there and it was like four o'clock in the afternoon maybe five is son who's getting low and i don't give shit 'cause i had cold beer and i had music and i had a bed and it's like yeah will just hang out for a while there's a really beautiful view a and i remember thinking like this is really cool like i really liked this feeling of being having everything i need with me you know an m and then we ended up i did the thing in vegas and then we took like a month and we drove up through nevada across v a series at yosemite and then came down you know along the coast in big sur and all that and it was just so nice and it reminded me of when i was young i used a backpack a lot travel all around the world you know with everything on my back it's the same thing but it's just like you know 'em i'm older now and i have a little more money so it's just like a slightly upgraded backpacking essentially i loved it so much i thought if i ever living north america i'm gonna get a van and really the hook it up and at the time i was living in spain and so then when i came to north america like fuck yeah let's get a man let's do this and also at that point i had the podcast going so it fits into the podcast right 'em 'cause i like to interview people i meet randomly and you hear their stories so it's really nice to be able to go out in the van and just you know just living in it and go wherever my fancy takes me and be spontaneous and a i mean i've met so many really interesting people just just rolling around in the man i mean in theory it's sort of like you minimize the creature comforts to it's sort of exactly what would be required like i i interviewed this guy brian kelly who's one of those he has that website the points guy and so yeah i know it airline guy yeah right right professional nomad right and you know it's constantly on emirates flights were delayed flatbeds and it the sickest hotels around the world and he's like but no matter what i could be at the saint regis and dubai and that bad is not as comfortable as my bed at home right and like buffer you you're like well i got it like it's right here wherever i wanna take my bet that's right go it's so nice to be you're driving down the road and you're like yeah you know i'm filling little drowsy i'm just gonna pull over right here and take a nap yeah that's it it's like there's nothing to it i don't need to look for a motel i don't need to pay anybody and and also my man is the right size where you don't know if there's anyone in it it's not like a camper where they're obviously people sleeping in which is just a mobile target forever fucking harm movie it's like you know where he's gotta get murdered time right ugly ugly and cops is that a fear like whenever you've pulled over that someone might break in or well potentially i i mean i've set up the man in a way that i can lock there's a section where to get at it you would have to break in and then have tools cut through metal an would in order to get so i i that's a place writing stash my laptop or whatever if i'm gonna be away like if i'm going on a three day camping trip or something i'll i'll put you know stuff in there you there is a feeling of vulnerability and a the first time i went out for this guy going like three months trips you know in the summers and the first time i was talking to a friend of mine who's a special forces you know tough guy i said what do you think mentioned i have a a gun with me 'cause those going a woman who's gonna be with me i'm thinking you were in the desert in some who's decided they're gonna you know raper something i have some responsibility and he's like no no guns forget about guns jesus yeah he said he said take bear spray i've heard that yeah so i've got bear spray in like strategically located around the van so different areas like i have access and also he said a small high disposable 'em what's it called like a blast last siren thing like push air horn heroin yeah yeah he said that'll scare the shit on anybody you pull that out and just yeah you know it's psychologically it just freaks people out yeah it's gonna throw you off your game yeah yeah and also i mean so i've been out two summers now i mean all back country idaho montana whatever i haven't had any hassle at all nothing so i think it's like most fears i think it's a mostly mostly allusion is there one particular experience and i'm sure you've had many where in traveling in your van of all they experiences where there is like one time in particular where you said to yourself this is why i did did it like this is exactly so many a you know just so many spots i've been in that i wouldn't have found otherwise you know random just what's down that road let's say that looks cool let's go down there and you know one thing leads to another one experience you know with the van that fed into the podcast that was really cool is you know as i'm traveling i'm posting on social media and so people see like oh you're in texas and so i i got a dm from dude 'em who listen to my podcast and he's like hey i see her in texas if you happen to get to a town called her lingua you should look at my buddy tony and i'm like whatever you know i get lots of these dm's and so it just sort of faded in memory should never heard of turn lingua i'm crews and you know i was around austin her something at the time and then a i was traveling of my wife and we want it to go to this part big ben national park i'd never been and so we drive down there and we get to the entrance it's three pm and the guy says sorry all the campgrounds her full 'em we have if you come back in the morning i can hook you up but today it's you're not gonna be able to go in like oh fuck all right so what should we do and he said will go back to that there's a little town down the road spend the night there culture lingua and then come back is like turn lingua wait a minute thrilling were so we go this town little dusty town and i'm thinking like turn link or sounds familiar and i got him you know there's so many platforms i'm searching my twitter dm's and my emails in my what's apps and all they found it and instagram dm and then i i a messaging sky tony i'm like hey you don't know me but somebody thinks i should meet you and i'm inter lingua in ten minutes later he's like hey yeah come down where at the high sierra sierra wherever and beers come join us so we go down and is this a bar and there's a big table like a dozen people sitting outside hey come on over and they got pictures of beer drinking beer with him and somebody says a fuck lookout dirty this mcgee's i'm gonna i'm gonna get sick in someone else's oh shut up it's good freer microbiomes right right and i'm like how you guys know about micro bio 'cause i've interviewed like doctors who do fecal transplants and you know like that's something i'm interested in is is a like how we've sort of ruining things by being to clean you know it's it's a theme in my my writing in in the podcast so i'm gonna impress these guys with my air you die knowledge about the micro bio right and i said a i said you know what a few years ago i read this article about a guy who is in africa and he was a traveling with the hudson hunter gatherer people full a he was studying anthropologist i
