By helping us make sense of ourselves as human beings living during strange and stressful times, The Nature of Nurture explores some of the most pressing issues facing us today. Using current phenomena as context (like covid, cults, and the prescription drug epidemic) this podcast endeavors to address the nature vs. nurture debate by exploring relationships which explain how we all live in families, in cultures, and in a world that extends beyond our individual biologies.
