Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige answer your questions about men's shifting place in society – like whether or not to think of them as poop-flinging primates.

Alpha male dominance is seen across many mammal species. One listener questions how men (and women!) can ignore these deep seated instincts. Ramani and Silvia incisively break down why nature provides zero justification for alpha behavior – in fact, nature may actively demonstrate its failings, as Dr. Robert Sapolsky discovered.

But first, a listener struggles with her expectations for quality communication from her partner, and another woman wonders whether her lover's social media obsession means he's a narcissist.

A perfect podcast for the "old-fashioned alpha male" in your life – even if that's you.

Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige respond to listener feedback from our 'Childhood Abuse' show (ep. 29), which turns into a deep dive on narcissism.

First, though, Frasier's crotch ink is in the news, and Ramani and Silvia can't find a POV from which it looks good – literally or metaphorically.

Then, listeners posit a link between childhood trauma and adult narcissism. Can they be co-incident? And if so, is there a middle ground between compassion and protecting yourself? One letter raises the complicated spectre of "communal narcissism," which insulates abusive homes from public scrutiny.

Finally, a listener wants to know how the children of narcissists can best avoid relationships with narcissists. Ramani drops a bomb: "What you call 'boredom' may just be 'health'."

Chrissy Teigen inspires Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige to praise a bit of jealousy. But they CAN’T abide the guilt women suffer for not having kids.

Silvia admits she’s quick to be jealous! Ramani explains how jealousy is unavoidable, but negative reactions to it need not be. Silvia shares the hard-won wisdom that there are never 3 positive reactions in a threesome.

Then, Dr Ramani wants to talk about Jennifer Aniston. Specifically the recurring scrutiny Jen faces for not "settling down" and having kids. Ramani makes some personal confessions about the hardships of motherhood.

Silvia frames the debate as Jennifer Aniston vs. Oprah. Two successful, independent, famous women: Why is one scrutinized for never having kids, while the other is not? There's a ton to unpack here.
