All to often I focus on the living things on this podcast but thought it was be great to delve into the past and what many animals leave behind, bones and there’s one person who sprung straight to mind to speak about them and that’s Ben Garrod. Ben is a professor of Evolutionary Biology and Science Engagement at the University of East Anglia and also a primatologist. You may of seen him on one of the many tv programmes he’s featured on like secrets of bones, Attenborough and the giant dinosaur and baby chimp rescue. He’s also got a book coming out.
Today we talk about how closely related we are to chimps, the science of bones and dispelling some myths from dinosaur films like jurassic park.
