160. The Why and How to Eat Like a Human | Ancestral & Primal Eating - Dr. Bill Schindler
Show Notes

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Bill Schindler! Oftentimes we talk about what and what not to eat but we don't talk about the how. In our discussion we take a deep dive into why it's important to know WHAT to eat, HOW to eat it and WHY.

Dr. Bill Schindler is the author of Eat Like a Human and is an internationally known archeologist, primitive technologist, and chef. He founded and directs the Eastern Shore Food Lab with a mission to preserve and revive ancestral dietary approaches to create a nourishing, ethical, and sustainable food system. He and his wife, Christina, operate the Modern Stone Age Kitchen, a foodery designed to provide nourishing food using ancestral approaches while maximizing safety, nutrient-density and bioavailability. His work has been featured on Wired magazine’s YouTube channel, and he also co-starred in the National Geographic Channel series The Great Human Race.
