SIO268: Defending Evolutionary Psychology with Lindsey Osterman

Since Lindsey has started to appear on the show more often, we’ve heard from a few people who were under the impression that her field (evolutionary psychology) is “bunk” or is all unprovable just-so stories. As an expert, Lindsey takes us through where these objections come from and why they aren’t accurate. Plus she takes us through some fascinating research!
