Episode Summary

Dr. Gary Ward has been a family physician and GP for 30 years. Gary and his wife Claire live in Perth, Western Australia. Gary talks about how we disregard our biology; that somehow in our conceit and entitlement, we have come to think that we are above it. We sometimes forget that we are merely an organism in an environment. Gary also discusses our ancient brain and how we are programmed to respond to threats in the heat of some of life’s most important transactions.
