Terry Project Podcast #19: Pick Up Artists

Gordon Katic can’t get women in clubs. Can evolutionary psychologists help him? On episode 19 of the Terry Project Podcast, Sam and Gordon explore the provocative world of pickup artists, self-help and evolutionary psychology. Have a group of socially awkward and aesthetically challenged men actually found a way to sleep with beautiful women through manipulating their reptilian brains? Or are they are just rape-y? This is a strange one.
