Discussion Group: Evolution and Family

February 27 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Are you fascinated with human origins and interested in meeting others who share your curiosity? Join the Evolution Exchange on February 27 for a lively virtual discussion group exploring the evolution of childhood and the human family.

Here’s the plan:

Before each event, you’ll dive into a handpicked, thought-provoking podcast, video, or article on your own. Then, like a book club, we’ll meet up on Zoom for small-group discussions (5-6 people) about what you learned. It’s a perfect chance to unwind after work and join like-minded evolution enthusiasts for meaningful conversations.

For the first discussion group meetup, we chose three episodes of The Leakey Foundation’s award-winning Origin Stories podcast. This miniseries was produced by Peabody Award nominee Leo Hornak and edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning editor Audrey Quinn. Each episode features scientists whose research expands our understanding of the family relationships that shape our lives.

Please listen to the following podcast episodes prior to the event:‌‌

Origin Stories: Fatherhood

Origin Stories: Motherhood

Origin Stories: Siblings
