Dr. Christopher Ryan - Sex, Connection, Evolution: All Gone Wrong

I am so excited to introduce an author whose work has impacted my work so significantly. Dr. Christopher Ryan wrote the epic book ‘Sex at Dawn’ in 2010, and he has gone on to continue researching and writing on human evolution. We discuss it all - human evolution, sex and connection, modernity, the agricultural revolution and how it shifted our sexual behaviour, the internet revolution today, and what all of it means for our lives and our happiness. His work is truly fascinating and I am so honoured that he has shared this work with us today.

Listener Love

Passionate and raw

Mark is one of the best, he will force you to look into yourself and see yourself in a way that can only make you better. Truly wonderful. Thanks Mark!!!!

Fascinating and inspiring

Love this podcast!!! Never boring, always full of lightbulb moments!! And a great sense of humor too to keep the tough stuff light.

Expansion of the mind and self.

I find myself returning to this podcast again and again. As life has carried me through quite the journey the last few years, I find peace and understanding in the topics Mark covers and the way he approaches them. Often times I am moved to tears because I relate so deeply, or find myself simply feeling seen and understood. There is so much to learn here by simply listening.

The best relationship podcast out there

I listen to many relationship oriented podcasts and there are many great ones. Mark’s is the best because of how he picks his guests, how the topics are relatable on so many levels, and how encouraging and inspiring he is. ❤️

Authentic alignment

Mark Groves says it perfectly every time, he is impeccable in the way he uses words to reach the deepest parts of your true self and does not hold back, always refreshing and empowering listening to him speak as well as with his guests. I will always recommend!

Highly recommend

I absolutely love listening to everything Mark has to say! Just listen. It will change your life in many ways. It really has done that for me.

Therapist approved!

I have a love for learning (for human behavior) and admittedly could qualify for podcast addiction! I’ve listened to many of Mark Groves Podcasts and as a therapist myself, I can tell you the information is correct. Unfortunately, I’ve listened to other podcasts where the advice suggested could have unintended consequences if that person is not prepared to utilize that advice. On another note, he scores many guests that are at the top of their field. As Mark talks, I hear him correct himself and do the work in real-time. He has the most important attributes of human growth-radical accountability and radical compassion. And was gifted with a “radio-voice” that is easy to pay attention to.

 

Deep, authentic & actionable

Mark shares his wisdom with candor, humility and authenticity. He has a way of inviting the listener to deepen their own thoughts— to grow into a more vibrant lived experience with themselves and others. Mark brings forward conversations with some of the worlds most thought provoking and brilliant thinkers, creators, and scientists. I feel lucky to have Mark’s extensive podcast catalog available any time I need support or another approach to life’s journey.

Love love love

Mark groves podcast has truly changed my life and how I see the world. His words and the guests that he brings on his podcast are true inspiration to personal growth. ❤️

Mark, thank you for sharing your truth and heart with us and all your guests for their brave and wondrous expertise on such potent areas of important and life changing topics.
