ssa-4-4-21.jpg

Broadcast: April 4th at 4:00 p.m.

Back off, you Neanderthal! It sounds as if you’ve just been dissed, but maybe you should take it as a compliment. Find out how our assessment of Neanderthals has undergone a radical rethinking, and hear about the influence they still have as they live on in our DNA, including our response to Covid 19.

Plus, how Neanderthal mini-brains grown in a lab will teach us about the evolution of Homo sapiens.
