Episode contains a few curse words, but that's it. Nothing more "explicit" than that.

About Roary: "Roary Kiah is a Level 3 MovNat Certified Trainer, survival expert, NOLS Wilderness First Responder, professional guide at Evergreen Wilderness Guides, and teacher of outdoor adventure camps for youth. Roary began practicing primitive skills at a young age and went on to study at Aboriginal Living Skills School to acquire a primitive and modern fire making techniques certification. A self-professed 'wannabe Neanderthal,' Roary is passionate about living a nature-immersed lifestyle and helping people reconnect to themselves through survival skills, Natural Movement, breathwork, and deep nature."

From Danny Clark, MovNat Master Instructor: “Roary is a tidal force of nature and, truth be told, just to be in his presence is an epic experience in itself! His exuberance for Nature and practicing/applying survival skills is absolutely contagious. His teachings make becoming connected and comfortable in Nature a practice where toughness, rapture, and confidence merge effortlessly. I really look forward to attending this event as a participant and being a student of Roary’s!”

1. MovNat Survival Retreat: Conifer, CO, August 26-28, 2022
Learn more and sign up: https://www.movnat.com/event/movnat-survival-conifer-co/

Description: "This event will be an immersive, hands-on experience. You’ll learn the skills necessary to survive from the perspectives of an ancient hunter gatherer scout and a modern minimalist backpacker caught in a 48+ hour survival situation.

"The skills that will be taught are situational, but can include:
Primitive shelter building
Modern and primitive fire making techniques
Water collection and treatment
Species identification and use
Natural navigation and land mapping
Efficient movement and teamwork as well as discussions about environmental adaptations as a method of healing and a strength inducing practice

"You’ll walk away with the confidence and understanding of what it takes to be a part of the natural world in a simple, yet tough experience you will never forget!"

6. Helmets
"Head Injuries Rising Despite Bike Helmets" by Michael Bluejay
https://bicycleuniverse.com/head-injuries-rising-despite-bike-helmets/

"But new data raise questions about that assumption. The number of head injuries sustained in bicycle accidents has increased 10 percent since 1991, even as helmet use has risen sharply, according to figures compiled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. With ridership declining over the same period, the rate of head injuries among bicyclists has increased 51 percent even as the use of bicycle helmets has become widespread.

"What is going on here? No one is very sure, but safety experts stress that while helmets do not prevent accidents, they are extremely effective at reducing the severity of head injuries when they do occur. Almost no one suggests that riders should stop wearing helmets, which researchers have found can reduce the severity of brain injuries by as much as 88 percent.
...
"Specialists in risk analysis argue that something else is in play. They believe that the increased use of bike helmets may have had an unintended consequence: Riders may feel an inflated sense of security and take more risks.
...
"But the most effective way to reduce severe head injuries may be to decrease the number of accidents in the first place."

9. Mirror Neurons
i. "Mirror Neurons After a Quarter Century: New light, new cracks" by JohnMark Taylor
https://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/flash/2016/mirror-neurons-quarter-century-new-light-new-cracks/

"What about the human brain allows a person to perform such feats as learning guitar through imitation, empathizing with anothers’s pain, or intuiting where a fencer will strike next? Nearly twenty-five years ago, scientists discovered a special kind of cell called a mirror neuron that many both in science and the popular press came to believe might enable social skills like these, skills that underlie much of what makes us uniquely human. However, after a quarter century, dozens of experiments, and reams of popular articles, the true significance of these cells has become increasingly controversial.

"Mirror neurons have begun to assume a humbler identity than was initially theorized, but it is important to remember that despite recent criticism, their activity may still play an important role in many behaviors. For instance, even Gregory Hickok, perhaps the most prominent critic of the hype surrounding mirror neurons, accepts that they probably play a role in enabling imitation, given that there must be some mechanism in the brain that converts an observed action to a series of muscle commands. Much research remains to be done; for instance, there has yet to be a study that specifically disables mirror neurons (an experiment that recent technological advances may make possible in monkeys), which would help to elucidate what exact behaviors rely on these neurons. Now that the hype around mirror neurons has begun to dissipate, it will be interesting to see what role remains for these curious cells."

ii. "What Happened to Mirror Neurons?" Cecilia Heyes and Caroline Catmur
https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1745691621990638
"In conclusion, it turns out that mirror neurons contribute to complex control systems rather than dominating such systems or acting alone. Their contributions are at a relatively low level—for example, to body movement discrimination rather than intention reading. And rather than being immutable units from birth, mirror neurons acquire their mirror properties through sensorimotor learning and change them by the same route. Although disappointing relative to some early claims, we argue that these discoveries should not discourage further research on mirror neurons."

10. Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why by Laurence Gonazalez

A good book, but it has some poor ideas about human psychology and human consciousness at the beginning, then sprinkled throughout.
