Neil Shubin holds part of a fossil from Tiktaalik roseae, a species that provides the missing evolutionary link between fish and the first land animals.

He made scientific history when he discovered a fossilized fish that was the "missing link" between land and sea creatures. Now paleontologist and popular science writer Neil Shubin is focusing his attention on the links between humans, rocks and plants -- and how clues to the universe's 14-billion-year history can be found in our bodies. Shubin joins us to talk about his new book, "The Universe Within."

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Neil Shubin, professor, paleontologist and evolutionary biologist at the University of Chicago, Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy, and author of "The Universe Within"
