Evolution podcasts of the National Academy of Sciences Colloquia

If you are interested in listening to some high quality lectures on evolution and history of science, check out podcasts for the Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia of the National Academy of Sciences (tip from Agn├Ęs Lacreuse). Here are podcasts for In the Light of Evolution III: Two Centuries of Darwin and here are podcasts for In the Light of Evolution IV: The Human Condition.

If you have a bend towards the history and philosophy of science, then check out talks by E.O. Wilson (The Four Great Books of Darwin), Steven Pinker (Evolution of the Mind), Michael Ruse (The Darwinian Revolution), Elliott Sober (The Structure of Evolutionary Theory), and Richard Roberts (Darwin's Place in the History of Science).

This should keep you busy for a while...

Good! I link to your blog fairly often via my Twitter account and I do the dreaded /via Irtiqa because of the character limit. Hopefully they find you!
