On today’s show we have a rewilding update; we discuss recent media coverage of the Paleo lifestyle (pro and con); a study indicates that artificial sweeteners can disrupt the microbiome and lead to metabolic disorders; we cover Mark Bittman’s thoughts on home cooking; and also an interesting idea about how fire has made us who we are…and it’s not just cooking. The Moment of Paleo segment is titled Animism and Generalities. And After the Bell, it’s a TED talk called The Surprising Science of Happiness.
