Episode 93

Jesse brings evolutionary psychologist Dr. Gordon Gallup on board this week for an in-depth look at human semen – most notably, its apparent mood-altering effects on females. If this is your first time learning that semen might be more than just baby fertilizer, be prepared for several jaw-dropping revelations. This episode contains a lot of explicit content (not of the salacious kind), so “listener discretion is advised.” But be prepared: You might have your thinking about romantic relationships forever altered — seriously.

And that’s not all. Jesse shares some neuroscience news that may seem straight out of an evil scientist’s lair, and he also somehow manages to land up on the unlikely topic of lap-dancing in the Ruthless Listener-Retention Gimmick.
