This episode tells the story of how a living, breathing organism turns into a pile of bones, and how those bones can tell us about the lives they led hundreds or even thousands of years ago.
Ep. 2 features Myeashea Alexander, whom I met at ComSciCon over the summer and who runs the fantastic blog The Rockstar Anthropologist, and Christine Lee, a bioarchaeologist, Nat Geo Emerging Explorer and TED fellow!
And because I got so obsessed with Mongolian music during the production of this show, there are multiple links to videos on the blog. They are AMAZING.
Also, if you need even more incentive to listen, I am narrating (most of) this one.
In an upcoming post, I’ll talk about my winter trip through the Yucatan.
Also, also, I have some good news! But it’s not final, and I don’t want to jinx it. That is all. But thank you, universe, for giving me a pretty thick silver lining to balance out all this terrible mouse stuff.
