Vybarr Cregan-Reid has written a fascinating book on how our bodies are affected by the modern world and our current environment. He's written extensively about running, movement, and the body. In many ways, as Blur, said "modern life is rubbish". It's all covered in his most recent book Primate Change. We talk about modern diseases that didn't exist thousands of years ago and how we need to appreciate how our lifestyles have changed us. Vybarr also wrote a wonderful account of running, Footnotes: How Running Makes Us Human, that draws on similar areas and Vybarr's background as an academic in the humanities brings a unique perspective that will poke at your preconceptions.
“The modern body is a work of art that is 10,000 years in the making”

I've moved away from most social media but I realise it is still an important part of many people's lives. If you want to share an episode or more on Twitter, Facebook etc then I'd be thrilled.
Even better, why not mention it to a colleague, friend, or family when you next speak to them. In fact, why not give them a call and meet up anyway? All the evidence suggests you'll be healthier and benefit. And, if you can and it's relevant, thanks for mentioning the podcast to them.
