How it works

Your primatologist host Natalia will welcome you to the event and have each team member introduce themselves and share a fact or two about themselves (depending on group size). Next, you can sit back and relax as Natalia gives you a crash course in primate behavior (read: teamwork) that’ll leave not only in awe of our closest genetic relatives, but with some great new business tools to use at work! Oh, and probably craving a banana.

Your host Natalia Reagan

Hello! I’m Natalia. I am an anthropologist, comedian, & educator. My specialties include:

1. Making science funny!


2. Chasing monkeys.

I love producing, hosting, & writing hilarious and educational science comedy content for the masses. I’ve been a comedy writer and correspondent on "Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk", a StarTalk All-Stars podcast host, a science expert on History's "UnXplained", and a skeptic on Travel Channel’s Paranormal Caught on Camera. Back in 2013, I co-hosted a show on Spike TV called "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" (as a skeptic!), was an animal expert on Nat Geo Wild’s "Everything You Didn’t Know About Animals", a regular host on Discovery Digital Network’s DNews, Seeker, and TestTube Daily, producer of the web series "Talking Shit with Dr. Todd and Natalia" & videos about the evolution of boobs, butts, and balls, just to name a few. My goal? I wanna spread science literacy while inducing spit takes.
