Edward Slingerland chats with Trey Elling about DRUNK: HOW WE SIPPED, DANCED, AND STUMBLED OUR WAY TO CIVILIZATION. Did you know that alcohol production may have pre-dated and even inspired early agricultural practices? Or that the right amount of alcohol allows us to become more creative, cultural, and communal? Speaking of, what is that ‘right’ amount before booze becomes destructive? Plus, why do some cultures have significantly lower rates of alcoholism than others? And how much of the book did he write while tipsy? Ted and Trey discuss all of this and much more.
