Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this week’s post is an audio file.
I don’t think I’ll make a habit out of this, but I told someone recently how easy it is to make a podcast and I thought that I’d better actually try it myself.
So listen to this bad boy and tell me what’s wrong with it.
[Update: I can already see that it’s hard to update/correct an audio post. For example, right after I posted it, someone pointed out that I didn’t connect the dots about why a larger brain might lead to fewer successful births.
(I meant that larger brains have to fit into larger baby heads, which makes childbirth harder. Also, the way to get around having such large heads at birth is to let the baby be born even earlier in development than human babies are born. Which may make them even less likely to survive.)
Also, I’m starting to think that fewer, not more, people will get to a post if it’s audio. Shrug.]
Unfortunately, I don’t know how to embed it yet, so you kinda have to download it.
