  1. Thank you for a great podcast. I wonder if (probably a matter of when rather than if) we as specie would at some point evolve in away to mitigate ongoing subtle chronic stress. (ie. HPA axis and cortisol negative feed back cycle would some how change to mitigate possible damage to hippocampal regions due to persistently elevated cortisol levels)
    Can totally relate to the school calling about kids throwing up 🙂
