#81 - Prehistoric Cooking and Human Evolution with Sirena Khanna

Welcome to the Ancestral Mind Podcast! Today our guest is Sirena Khanna, author of the article "Cooking with Hominids: how diet changed the evolution of our brains". Colin stumbled upon this article a while ago and found it extremely interesting, and so he decided to have Sirena on the show to talk about it with her. Colin and Sirena go over the main points of the article and more, talking about things like the importance of cooking in the development of the human brain, the role of tools in the procurement of meat by prehistoric humans, and much more. Tune in now!
