Sara Pascoe explores our modern social world though theories of evolutionary psychology and more. In a brand new stand up show recorded in front of live audiences in museums, Sara asks how our past influences our modern lives, and how come we can still get emotionally hijacked by our primitive emotions?Sara says: "I've been obsessing about the ape behaviours visible in our 'civilised' human interactions for nearly as long as I've been plotting to get a Radio 4 series. I'm thrilled that I've been given the opportunity to use the latter to explore the former - I'm off to eat lice out of friends' fur to celebrate.""Always clever and sometimes exquisite." The Independent"Pascoe's lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation to make a near-perfect show." The Guardian
