Layout 1I posted about this book already, but there’s continued interest. CBC Radio’s The Current interviewed author Richard Wrangham on Wednesday, July 8. Here’s the inro on The Current’s website:

It’s summer-time and the barbecues are sizzling. And according to Richard Wrangham, the desire to throw food on a fire is about much more than taste or relaxed socializing. He teaches biological anthropology at Harvard University.
