Common sense isn't as plentiful as it once was...
On this week's show, Dan brings a leading expert in the field of evolutionary behavioral sciences in to investigate why.
Dr. Gad Saad is a professor of marketing at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and has famously pioneered the use of evolutionary psychology in marketing and consumer behavior.
Gad isn't your stereotypical academic though... In fact, he shares some viewpoints that fly in the face of the overwhelming majority of his peers in academia.
Dan and Gad weigh in on a number of controversial topics in this week's episode that are sure to rile up some listeners like left vs right politics, the state of higher education, and the concept of truth itself.
Gad expands upon these ideas and more in his newest book The Parasitic Mind: How Infectious Ideas are Killing Common Sense.
