How did we (homo sapiens) get here?

June 27, 2014 With Jonathan Kingdon. Robert Martin and Maeve Leakey

The African origin of our species was scientifically established by Louis Leakey and his family which is represented in this vigorous conversation by his daughter-in-law, paleoanthropologist Maeve Leakey. Two other distinguished researchers on the evolutionary emergence of the “talking, walking, thinking” relative of the higher apes join us in this conversation from 2003. Kingdon is from Oxford University and Martin is from the Field Museum.
