In this conversation, Fran takes us on a tour of us: homo sapiens. Along the way, we learn about how we came to be us and along the way we meet other species of humans: Neanderthals, Denisovans and the so called “hobbits” of Indonesia. Did you know we all carry between 1 and 4% of Neanderthal genes and one of those genes is responsible for red hair!
