Do you love knowing obscure facts and figures?

Do you have a tendency for Googling well past your bedtime?

Do you regularly win at trivia night?

You might have a "Thirsty Brain" and Matt McCary might have the cure.

Matt is widely known in the Paleo community as one half of the dynamic Paleo Parent's duo, but after writing multiple best-selling books, creating an uber popular blog, and producing blockbuster podcasts, he and his wife Stacy decided they wanted to get Real.

Their new website, RealEverything.com, is dedicated to real talk, real food, and real life, and for Matt, this meant exploring his boundless search for knowledge. Matt's new podcast, Thirsty Brain with Matt McCary, explores everything from the history of zombies and Julius Caesar to medieval surgical masks and the sleeping habits of ducks.

On today's episode of PMR, Matt joins us for a Paleo-centric preview of Thirsty Brain where we dive deep into the controversial question, "How long did cavemen actually live?"
 
In our conversation we discuss:

  • The important differences between lifespan and life expectancy
  • What all-cause mortality means
  • Why wheat made us shorter 
  • How our modern lives have been extended despite our crappy diets
  • and the reasons why our hunter gatherer ancestors really did die young, but spoiler alert, it had nothing to do with diet.
