WATCH: New YouTube Series Explains Human Nature Through Evolution

23 MARCH 2015

There’s no doubt that we Homo sapiens are a pretty incredible species. But how did we end up this way? One of Australia’s most respected (and hilarious) evolutionary biologists, Darren Curnoe from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Science in Australia, will be hosting a new YouTube series that breaks down the evolution of humans, from our ape ancestors to farming and the modern traits that make our species unique.

Along the way, the UNSW TV series, which launches tomorrow, will break down some common evolution myths and answering some enduring questions, such as whether races are real, why humans are the only species that cooks and what the arrival of farming really did to our bodies.
