307 – Jeff Leach (Microbiome Expert / Anthropologist)

By February 26, 2018September 14th, 2019No Comments

Like millions of people, I first became aware of Jeff Leach when I read about his attempt to transfer a hunter/gatherer’s fecal matter to his own colon as a way to study the human microbiome. Little did I know I’d find myself sitting across the table from him in rural Texas a few years later or that he’d agree to share his insights with me on a podcast. Jeff’s published in Science, Nature and everywhere else a groundbreaking researcher could dream of, but he’s too busy with new projects to reflect much on past successes.

Here’s an article about the Hadza, in which Jeff is mentioned.
