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. (#16412)
