Darwin Day 2008 – Charles Darwin‘s birthday is February 12, which is as good a day as any to celebrate his achievements and those of science in general.Â We talk to evolutionary biologist, philosopherÂ and popular science writer Massimo Pigliucci of the State University of New York in Stony Brook, the organizer of SUNY’s Darwin Day events, and who organized the University of Tennessee’s first Darwin Day in 1997.Â MassimoÂ maintains several web presences, including RationallySpeaking.org, PlatoFootnote.org, and GenotypebyEnvironment.org.Â We’ll also feature a special “scientific gospel” song from the California based band The Galapagos Mountain Boys.
If you live in metro Atlanta, you might consider celebrating Darwin Day at Darwin’s, a jazz/blues club in Marietta (“Where Great Music Evolves”).Â [PLEASE NOTE: We discovered after the podcast was recorded that Darwin’s will NOT be open on Tuesday, February 12th!]
Also, the audio problems with show #10 have been corrected.Â If you had problems with that episode, you can now reload it and itÂ should be fine.Â Our apologies for the glitch.
