In this episode we are joined by Chris Flynn, author of Mammoth which has just been re-released in a B-format.
Narrated by a 13,000-year-old extinct mammoth, this is the (mostly) true story of how a collection of prehistoric creatures came to be on sale at a natural history auction in New York in 2007. By tracing how and when these fossils were unearthed, Mammoth leads us on a funny and fascinating journey from the Pleistocene epoch to nineteenth-century America and beyond, revealing how ideas about science and religion have shaped our world.
And if you want to check out the doco Chris’s talks about on Cloning. It’s called Genesis 2.0.
