Tuesday, Utah Valley University geneticist and artist Daniel Fairbanks is our guest. Fairbanks has written extensively on how humans have evolved over time. But his most recent book also demonstrates why it matters. Fairbanks says that evolution has impacted our environment, our food production, and even our health. He joins Doug to talk about how understanding evolution can help us make better choices for our future. We'll also talk about his work as a sculptor, and how art helps him explore science.
Daniel Fairbanks is Dean of Utah Valley University's College of Science & Health and a Professor of Biology. His books include Evolving: The Human Effect and Why It Matters [Amazon|Indiebound] and Relic of Eden: The Powerful Evidence of Evolution in Human DNA [Indiebound|Amazon]
