MixShakePour: Meat, Fire and the Evolution of Man from NPR

You can listen to the story here. This was one of the most interesting science pieces I’ve heard on NPR to date!

…”Then our ancestors discovered meat. Meat contains lots of calories in a small package. More meat allowed our guts to shrink. Digestion wasn’t so labor-intensive, so to speak. So where did the body’s extra energy go? Into building a bigger brain! That’s the theory, anyway.”
