An Anthropological Look at Human Tree Climbing with George Brill | EMP Podcast 61

Video

Episode Breakdown

This week our guest is George Brill!

George is a young anthropologist and athlete who trains in ultra running, rock climbing, and freediving.

I ran into his fascinating research on the Batek people of Peninsular Malaysia, who are famous for their unique social systems and egalitarianism as well as being one of the most capable tree-climbing cultures on the planet.

In this conversation we go deep into anthropological theory, evolutionary and cultural backgrounds, how human beings evolved their locomotive capacities, as well as the intersection between spirituality, movement and traditional lifestyles, which I think you guys will find really fascinating.
