How it works

Your host, anthropologist Natalia Reagan, will welcome you to the event and have each team member introduce themselves and share a fact or two about themselves. Next, you can sit back and relax as Natalia gives you a crash course about how animals and humans benefit far more from cooperative thinking than competitive. And how cooperation plus collaboration leads to deeper and more compelling work. After the lesson, the Natalia will divide you into small groups where you will do a team building exercise that relies heavily on cooperation. They’ll also be hilarious and fun!

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.
