Natalia Reagan is an anthropologist, writer, actress, comedienne, and cartoonist. She has appeared on the “TODAY Show,” “Fox Edge News,” “Playboy Morning Radio,” and various other radio shows weighing in on different scientific subjects, from the evolution of boobs and butts to how pheromones play a role in human mating. Natalia also is the creator of “Science! It’s Your Friend” a tongue-in-cheek web series that seeks to answer fun science questions using comedy.
For her thesis fieldwork, Natalia conducted a survey of the critically endangered species, the Azuero spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis) in rural Panama. As an actor and comedienne, Natalia has appeared in “My Name is Earl,” “Better Off Ted,” and “Sex Drive.”
Natalia’s goal is to meld her two passions by educating people about human behavior and morphology using humor, evolutionary biology, and nonhuman primates as models. Humans are faced with serious environmental consequences (e.g., climate change, mass extinctions, “super bugs”) due to our irresponsible behavior, and she believes knowledge about our origins will help us find a way to live in harmony with nature.
Natalia currently resides in Los Angeles and generally lives a “pants optional” lifestyle.
