About Natalia Reagan

StarTalk All-Star

Natalia Reagan is an anthropologist, primatologist, producer, host and comedienne. She was the co-host on Spike TV’s show 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty.  Natalia used her vast knowledge of primate behavior and fieldwork to judge contestants searching for “the world’s greatest hide and go seek champion”, Bigfoot. Natalia also wrote and produced a web series with her Bigfoot Bounty co-star called Talking Science with Dr. Todd and Natalia. She recently re-launched the web series under the title, Talking Science.

Natalia also was a regular animal expert on Nat Geo Wild’s Everything You Didn’t Know About Animals. Most recently, she was a regular host for Discovery Communications DNews, Seeker, & TestTube. She has appeared on the TODAY Show, Fox News, Arise 360, HuffPost Weird News Podcast, and various podcasts & radio shows weighing in on different scientific subjects, from the evolution of boobs and butts to how pheromones play a role in human mating.

In 2011 she began writing and producing videos that used comedy to explain scientific concepts to a broad audience. Her video on the evolution of boobs, entitled The Story of Boobs: The Breast Tale Ever Told landed her on the TODAY Show talking about America’s obsession with breasts. Her other videos have covered a myriad of science topics from the evolution of butts & balls, to pheromones, to the perils of pet monkeys (seriously, don’t get a pet monkey).

As a primatologist, Natalia conducted a survey of a critically endangered subspecies of spider monkey, the Azuero spider monkey (Ateles geoffroyi azuerensis) in rural Panama.

Before Natalia’s stint chasing ornery spider monkeys through the wilds of Central America, she wrote and performed sketch comedy and was in an improv troupe called The Omelettes. She has appeared in My Name is Earl, Better off Ted, Sex Drive, and she is ¼ of the wacky gang of gals on the hilarious web series New Age Girls in which she plays “Stevie” the militant hippy of the bunch.

Natalia is also the co-founder and chief creative director of BOAS Network, a non-profit organization that brings the field of anthropology to the mainstream via fun and educational videos. Her ultimate goal is to meld her two passions, humor and science, to educate the public about the fascinating world around them all while making them do a spit-take.
