“Today, a fast moving, sidestepping, gene-swapping free-for-all that would’ve made Darwin’s head spin.

David Quammen tells us about a shocking way that life can evolve – infective heredity. To figure it all out we go back to the earliest versions of life, and we revisit an earlier version of Radiolab. After reckoning with a scientific icon, we find ourselves in a tangle of genes that sheds new light on peppered moths, drug-resistant bugs, and a key moment in the evolution of life when mammals went a little viral.

    Okay…a tiny experiment here…

    …I recently discovered that the native WordPress audio player shows up, wherever you leave the URL to [at least some] audio media files…even when located on other websites.

    …I’m pretty certain, this is a recent change…as this never used to happen.

    Since it’s easy enough…so long as I remember…I’ll attempt to embed the media right here, to give an option to just listen to it through the WordPress media player.
