I have just begun to listen to your podcasts and like them very much. However, scientific accuracy is important. Your referring to our having evolved from monkeys is wrong science. We evolved from an ancestor common to apes, chimps, bonobos and us. I maybe more sensitive to this because almost half the population in the US does not believe in evolution of humans and I'd hate to see misinformation being propagated by a "science" program. In fact, historically Darwin was ridiculed in the press for the idea that we are the brothers of monkeys. All recent genome science is showing the interrelatedness of all life on Earth. Keep up the good work. Bringing science to the public in an engaging and entertaining manner is important work but it must be accurate.

thanks for the feedback. Perhaps you could point me at the specific issue that you noticed so that I am more clear about the point to which you are referring.
