On 6 July I talked with D A Henderson, MD, currently Professor of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh, about his recent book Smallpox: The Death of a Disease (Prometheus Books). Dr Henderson was chief of the World Health Organization Smallpox Eradication Program from 1966 to 1977.
I then talked with Stanford University Biology Professor Joan Roughgarden about her books Evolution's Rainbow: Diversity, Gender and Sexuality in Nature and People and The Genial Gene: Deconstructing Darwinian Selfishness (both published by the University Of California Press).
To hear this program, click here. The signal breaks up badly from about 1 minute 15 seconds to 4 minutes 15 seconds. I have no idea why but will see if I can correct it.
