Episode 5 — Meet the Neanderthals

Neanderthal HumanI plan on producing a series of podcast episodes on human evolution and our ancient relatives, so I thought it would be helpful to start out with a bit of history. As the Neanderthals are prominent figures in discussions of human evolution, and accordingly are brought up in the press from time to time, we’ll look at them first.

So this episode is devoted to the history of Neanderthal discoveries, and how those discoveries were viewed culturally.
If you’re not subscribed to the podcast, you can listen to the episode via an inline player (Flash required) here:
