Palaeo After Dark

How do evolutionary biologists and paleontologists loosen up after work? For scientists James Lamsdell, Amanda Falk, and Curtis Congreve, it involves enjoying some beers while engaging in lively, critical discussions of scientific papers - and digressing into pop culture topics such as movies, video games, and music. Palaeo After Dark is bi-weekly podcast covering fossils, evolutionary history, ancient ecology, and more. In each 90-minute episode, the hosts discuss several recent scientific papers, critically examine the findings, and consider what each new discovery might mean for our understanding of the planet's natural history. Recent episodes have addressed why rabbits are small ("Amanda Loves Watership Down"), how climate influences evolutionary patterns ("Ramble On"), and the behavior of herbivorous dinosaur species ("Salty Tooth"). All episodes can be found on the page linked above or on most podcatcher apps. Additionally, visitors may want to check out the "Palaeo Film Club," which includes commentary tracks for films such as Evolution. Listeners can follow the podcast on Facebook (@PalaeoAfterDark) to stay up-to-date.
