What It Means To Be Human
1. Despite our great differences to other apes, we share 99% our genes. In fact, we're more closely related to chimpanzees than chimpanzees are to gorillas. Jared Diamond discusses his book, "The Third Chimpanzee" where he makes the case that humans should be reclassified as little more closely related to chimpanzees.
2. Without reproduction, there's be a lot less life on the planet. So, it's only natural to have a conversation with Jared Diamond and Michael Ryan about the weird world of sex, including homosexuality and a fish that clones itself.
