In this episode we talked with paleontologist, author, and television presenter Neil Shubin, author of “Your Inner Fish : A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body”; and scientific illustrator Kalliopi Monoyios, who illustrated “Your Inner Fish”. We talked about the discovery of the Tiktaalik fossil by Shubin’s team (and saw a neat cast of its skull), most every scientific discipline you can think of an how they’re related, and the importance of art in science and science communication. We probably mentioned teeth, too, because who can talk about fossils without mentioning teeth?
