Quotes from this episode:
"I think that because of the reality of the cultural construct of work and life and educating and raising children is not tied to the land and being able to live close by and close family compounds with your kin, your extended family, you end up with the problems that we have today, which is really I would say against the grain of our biology. It's almost for the female brain like fingernails on a chalkboard." - Dr. Brizendine
