Came for the genetics, stayed for the paleo
Razib Khan and Spencer Wells are tag-team interviewers who use the podcast format to their advantage. Each episode is a deep dive on a narrow topic. Sometimes it's these two experts riffing with each other (Neanderthal ancestry of most humans), other times it's an interview. Three recent episodes have been particularly rewarding, to this reader: 1. Lee Berger discussing new discoveries of hominid fossils in South Africa. 2. Genetic genealogist Roberta Estes filling in the details on how the Golden State Serial Killer case was cracked. 3. Razib’s interview of cardiologist Amit Khera on integrating polygenic risk scores into the practice of medicine. That's a lot of ground to cover, and this podcast does it very, very well.Read full review »
