Update June 2021: I can no longer stomach this show. The arrogance and support of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories is off the charts now. Lisle especially keeps claiming he knows stuff 100% and then gets proven wrong (eg. pandemic will be over in 2 weeks).They belong with Pam Popper and the...Read full review »

Coronavirus Loneliness episode- male doc was carrying on about some lady who bothered him, which was very petty on his part. I don’t need to listen to this judgmental negativity

Solid information. However , The pleasure trap r words n the title of Dr Lisle’s book is mentioned a lot . Makes me feel a bit brain washed .I have the book . Yet, makes me feel a bit guilty that I’m human & I like to sit n have a drink or some yes chips . Otherwise I’m plant based . Guilt is...Read full review »

I was so incensed by the last episode that I cancelled my subscription. Truly awful!

This is an amazing discussion about vaccination. I love the Libertarian viewpoint. I am not antivax but am amazed at the way people feel it is their business to ask me if I have been vaccinated. What happened to Healthcare Privacy? I have not been vaccinated yet and am not ready to do so. ...Read full review »

One of my favorite podcasts and definitely my favorite on the topic of evolutionary psychology. I’ve listened to nearly all of the episodes and am going through them again the second time within a year.

Fantastic podcast! The world makes so much sense through this lens. Both Doctors articulate and explain the concepts of evolutionary psychologically so well, and when you hear it you realise that you intuitively knew it all along. Doug and Jen are my intellectual crushes!! Get listening people!

This is a great podcast but the sound quality is awful.

I love a different point of view that is grounded in science, humor, and humility. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ thank you!

This is about your life. The absolute best podcast on earth for discovering who you are and what life is all about. Please continue with the 1 hour segments. Love it so much!

Wow! These “docs” were way off base on their pandemic response and were guided by their political beliefs rather than the science they should have been following.

This podcast will make you a better version of yourself through rational explanations and sound reasoning, tune in every week for useful information and logical perspectives

How can this podcast only have 4.5 stars!? Whatever loser gave beat your genes a 1 star review needs to be checked into a mental institution. This podcast is the best and finest view of psychology and human nature that the wold has ever seen. Bravo!

Highly recommend!

Interesting and entertaining show that helps deal with various real life issues and controversies. Many thanks to Dr. Lisle and Dr. Howk for providing us with useful content!

Has the Coronavirus induced mass hysteria in 80 percent of the population? Does this public response (since the Coronavirus is like the seasonal flu in terms of fatality) fit the clinical definition?
WildBill^2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/20
This is by far my fave podcast. Sharp and intellectually sound. Also quite entertaining.
MW here via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/20
I find that Dr. Lisle gives some cold unchristian but useful information. The addition of Dr. Howk added a small amount female insight and a tiny bit of warmth, however, I find them both arrogant & condescending. Their banter gives the appearance that they are trying to impress each other...Read full review »

Just discovered evolutionary psychology for relationships and it totally blew my mind! This podcast is so good! Really appreciate all the insights and answers. Thank you!

I have learned so much about myself, others and the world at large from this- evolutionary psychology is at the heart of it (and all humanity, as you will learn)
Beka.D via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/26/20
I love Dr. Lisles perspectives ❤️ Such an intelligent, humble and insightful man. I could listen to him all day everyday ❤️
StarchWarriorLacey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/20
This podcast is the most insightful podcast ever. It’s also probably the best podcast you will ever listen to inregards of your health. If you truly want to better you life and change and understand why we do the things we do, give this podcast a listen. Take notes and enjoy and quirky humor.

Information like this doesn’t need a fancy package, great job you guys.
ikekiwi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/03/20
Dr Lisle and Dr Howk provide the “source code” to understanding why we think what we think and do what we do and how we can “beat the genes” I’d reccomend this podcast to anyone and everyone!

Relationships, dating, parenting and a lot more explained in a witty and understandable way. Listening has helped me a lot to understand myself and others.

Terrific podcast. Filled with insights and humor. Useful examples. Highly recommended.
Peter_in_Santa_Monica via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/19
What a wonderful podcast. I started from the beginning quite recently so have many hours of listening ahead. It feels like going back into education and has explained why I and others think and act the way we do. I have also found this information to be incredibly reassuring. A high point was...Read full review »

I have enjoyed this podcast for several years. It has changed my worldview substantially and made life more interesting and entertaining. I believe things are going off the rails lately, with lots of banter and laughing. Historically, Dr. Lisle stays on point, which made this podcast stand out....Read full review »

In episode 158 the issue of stuttering was tackled and it was a fail. Stuttering, contrary to the advice is not caused by lack of relaxation, nor knowing what one wants to say, nor nervousness. Those things are precisely what stuttering IS NOT. In one fell swoop he spouted every silly and...Read full review »

Love this podcast and the no nonsense insights by Dr Lisle. Nate, who does the interviewing is fantastic too. Much better than others (eg snake oil merchant Jordan Peterson)

Listen to this podcast if you want a heads up on the world around you as a Homo sapien

Thanks for the great podcast, just discovered Dr Lisle recently, thanks to Chef AJ. Funny and insightful discussions on relationships, dating, health and life from an evolutionary psychology perspective.

This podcast has helped me through some troubled times and has really put things into perspective for me. I feel like I am better equipped to navigate my way through life by more effectively communicating with and understanding the behavior of others.

Interesting information!
layra lyn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
I finally have given up on this podcast after too many episodes in which Dr. Lisle missed (or purposefully ignored) opportunities to consider, or at least acknowledge, the impact of psychosocial factors on a person’s life and behavior. Given Dr. Lisle’s academic background I have no doubt that he...Read full review »

His nutrition view of calorie in calorie out fails to account for the effect of hormones and fat storage. He denies any EBP studies that support lower carbohydrates diets instead of merely watching calories. I seriously doubt this guys information!

Dr. Lisle is a warm yet candid Clinical Evolutionary Psychologist that helps guide people throw everyday issues no matter how seemingly simple or complex. Although I agree with mostly everything he says he definitely has gaps in knowledge and can’t always answer everyone’s question (which as a...Read full review »
EvCogneuroscience via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/19
A good podcast with a great deal of insight into human behavior. HOWEVER, I think that Dr. Lisle should stick to evo psych and leave his politics out of the equation. The idea of “beating your genes” and overcoming disadvantages evolutionary traits via top-down regulation and insight seems to me...Read full review »

This podcast has revolutionised my thinking on human behaviour. It has even helped my mental health, as my own behaviour as well as that of others ‘makes more sense’.

Love the controversial topics and conversations each week. Dr. Lisle makes sense out of the world in weekly installments. He is my guru!
hoodwinkedatlanta via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/08/19
Funny, interesting, provocative, engaging--what isn't great about this podcast?!. If Beat Your Genes were a person it would be the fanciest human at the bar. Get ready to have your mind figuratively blown by Dr. Lisle's brutally honest but reliably scientific explanation of the human...Read full review »

Since 4 weeks I went from the very first episode to the most recent one.

Many lifelong question were answered to me. I learned so much so...Read full review »

I am always amazed at how Dr. Lisle can get right to the issue. I especially enjoy hearing about how the brain handles rich versus low calorie food and how difficult it is to break thru the reward system to succeed at whole food, plant based eating. The Falling out of Love podcast hit me right...Read full review »
