Your Inner Fish

Back in 2006 Neil Shubin, Professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy (try saying that after you've had a drink) University of Chicago, rocked the paleontology and evolution scene with his team's unearthing of a fossil revealing the transition between aquatic and land animals. Named Tiktaalik for reasons you'll see if you watch the vid, it's one of the most important discoveries in understanding the origins of terrestrial animals.

Shubin talks about his science and his recent book, Your Inner Fish.
