Your Inner Fish
Provost of the Field Museum and Bensley Professor of Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago
Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes University of Chicago Professor Neil Shubin for a discussion of his book, "Your Inner Fish, A Journey into the 3.5 Billion-year History of the Human Body". Shubin talks about his career, the interdisciplinary nature of the work of a paleontologist, and the unique skill set, scientific and personal, that is required. He also chronicles his team's discovery of the fossil Tiktaalik, the transition between fish and four-legged mammals that occurred over 350 million years ago.
