Mondo Diablo Episode 343: Once Upon a Time…L’Homme

March 29, 2012

Yeah, sorry about the wait. Again, my excuse is sickness. Anyway, you might like this. It’s from a French series from the seventies or eighties. I like it because it makes no excuses or tries to sooth Creationists’ feelings, and gets right to evolution. I also like the Commedia troupe qualities of the characters. Pierre et Pierrette. It’s nice to know they still use those types, even though we American slobs feel we are too cool and macho for that. And did I mention the music is Library chic?

Episode 197: Carl Sagan on Natural and Artificial Selection

May 8, 2009

Carl Sagan’s Cosmos is still relevant, still enlightening, and still entertaining after twenty-nine (!) years. I am fond of them all, but the one that sticks in my mind is the tale of the Heiki Crabs, which bear, ostensibly, miraculous markings on their shells. Carl explains why, and relates this artificially selected phenomenon with the theory of natural selection.
