Ever think about what makes animals so different from one another? Then zooming in even more, how do we think about differentiating animals within the same species, like the chipper little sap-suckers (a type of woodpecker!)? PhD student Libby Natola studies exactly this-- using genomics behaviour and the ecology of these birds, Libby explores how new species arise. Be sure to listen in on this headbanger of an episode!
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
