Podcast – Interview: Cameron Smith on Evolution and Anthropology

Jonathan and Chris interview Cameron M. Smith, professor in the department of anthropology at Portland State University. They discuss what is anthropology; what it’s like teaching evolution in the United States; what the theory of evolution is; what we’ve learned from the fossil record; whether or not humans are still evolving; what a hominin is; the revival of Lamarck’s theory; and Cameron’s real-life adventures on inhospitable terrain and his prediction for humanity’s new space age. And you will learn a new word: gemmule!
