Where did we come from? One of humanity's most basic questions, the answer is fascinating. Weaving together insights from the fields of genetics, archaeology, linguistics, and paleoanthropology, hosts Spencer Wells and Razib Khan take us on a grand tour of human history. Scientific storytelling at its best.

Customer Reviews

Great podcast on human genetics!

Both the hosts are well-informed and know what they are talking about. A very good (and much-needed) podcast on human genetics, covering topics as diverse as anthropology, archaeology, genetics, and evolutionary biology.

Accessible scientific content on human genetics

I am a human population geneticist myself so I can attest that the hosts make efforts to present scientifically valid contents. I am very impressed by the breadth of their knowledge and I would like to praise their effort in making these knowledge accessible to those outside of the field. Hope to see more great episodes coming!

Amazing work

I just got through listening to the first two episodes and it is great! Both hosts are knowledgable and certainly know there stuff! Spencer Wells has done amazing work in both population genetics and anthropology so it's no suprise he co-hosts a killer podcast. Definetly worth the listen. It is definetly sciencey.. but not to a point of being difficult to understand and it's really entertaining.
