Podcast of lecture 2 - "Variation" - by Prof Jonathan Weiner

Last night's second lecture for the Darwin150 campaign - "Variation" - by Professor Jonathan Weiner went very well.

Professor Weiner won a Pulitzer Prize for his wonderful book, "Beak of the Finch", which shows evolution - and specifically variation - in action among "Darwin's finches" in the Galapagos Islands (and details the multi-decade work of Princeton biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant).

Missed our call with Richard Milner? Listen to the mp3!

Last Wednesday, we kicked off our Fall Darwin150 Campaign -- the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" -- with scientist, editor, and author Richard Milner.

Milner delighted us with the stories, songs, and science of his new book, "Darwin's Universe." An Associate in Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History, Richard Milner is an unusual combination of scientist, writer, historian, and Broadway actor.
