The 19 February show featured a conversation with Nick Pyenson, curator fossil marine mammals at the Smithsonian. We talked about his work with whales, both ancient and more recent, as well as other interesting finds and some of the possible interpretations and implications of this work. Check out the Pyenson Lab weblog to see photos of some of the things we discussed. Nick was in town as part of the SSSC SIRF program.
