Automatic TRANSCRIPT

<p><span>You might know him from his greatest hits: natural selection, Galápagos finches, and eating lots of the animals he studied… it’s Charles Darwin! This week, we’re talking about this famous biologist and some of the weirder science he did. What kind of books did he write after he published </span><em><span>On the Origin of Species</span></em><span>? Why was he so disgusted by fish spitting out seeds? And was it normal to write a letter to a scientist friend and ask detailed questions about barnacle sex?</span></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Follow us on Twitter @SciShowTangents, where we’ll tweet out themes for upcoming episodes and you can ask the science couch questions! </span></p> <p> </p> <p><span>And if you want to learn more about any of our main topics, check out these links:</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Truth or Fail]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/4x38gj/darwins-monsters-parasitoid-wasps"><span>https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/4x38gj/darwins-monsters-parasitoid-wasps</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://books.google.com/books?id=lIcoAQAAMAAJ&amp;pg=PA179&amp;lpg=PA179&amp;dq=charles+darwin+eyebrows&amp;source=bl&amp;ots=YrNkw9VczZ&amp;sig=ACfU3U06m2pYFahEfpPveHOyT8auD0ZeXw&amp;hl=en&amp;sa=X&amp;ved=2ahUKEwivsMeU4LvgAhUbJzQIHUaoA5wQ6AEwFXoECAgQAQ#v=onepage&amp;q=charles%20darwin%20eyebrows&amp;f=false"><span>https://books.google.com/books?id=lIcoAQAAMAAJ&amp;pg=PA179&amp;lpg=PA179&amp;dq=charles+darwin+eyebrows&amp;source=bl&amp;ots=YrNkw9VczZ&amp;sig=ACfU3U06m2pYFahEfpPveHOyT8auD0ZeXw&amp;hl=en&amp;sa=X&amp;ved=2ahUKEwivsMeU4LvgAhUbJzQIHUaoA5wQ6AEwFXoECAgQAQ#v=onepage&amp;q=charles%20darwin%20eyebrows&amp;f=false</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Fact Off]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Seeds &amp; fish:</span></p> <p><a href="http://darwin-online.org.uk/content/frameset?itemID=F1683&amp;viewtype=text&amp;pageseq=1"><span>http://darwin-online.org.uk/content/frameset?itemID=F1683&amp;viewtype=text&amp;pageseq=1</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.darwinproject.ac.uk/letter/DCP-LETT-1681.xml"><span>https://www.darwinproject.ac.uk/letter/DCP-LETT-1681.xml</span></a></p> <p><a href="http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/d-brief/2017/11/17/darwin-bird-vomit/#.XBlv3c9Khxw"><span>http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/d-brief/2017/11/17/darwin-bird-vomit/#.XBlv3c9Khxw</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://academic.oup.com/botlinnean/article/161/1/20/2418329"><span>https://academic.oup.com/botlinnean/article/161/1/20/2418329</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Barnacles: </span></p> <p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3574338/"><span>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3574338/</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://academic.oup.com/icb/article/56/4/728/2198193"><span>https://academic.oup.com/icb/article/56/4/728/2198193</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Ask the Science Couch]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Darwin’s understanding vs. ours:</span></p> <p><a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/earth/story/20141017-how-flowers-conquered-the-world"><span>http://www.bbc.co.uk/earth/story/20141017-how-flowers-conquered-the-world</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/what-darwin-didnt-know-45637001/"><span>https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/what-darwin-didnt-know-45637001/</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.wired.com/2014/12/fantastically-wrong-thing-evolution-darwin-really-screwed/"><span>https://www.wired.com/2014/12/fantastically-wrong-thing-evolution-darwin-really-screwed/</span></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.esp.org/books/darwin/variation/facsimile/contents/darwin-variation-chap-27-i.pdf"><span>http://www.esp.org/books/darwin/variation/facsimile/contents/darwin-variation-chap-27-i.pdf</span></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.blc.arizona.edu/courses/schaffer/449/Soft%20Inhertance/Geison%20-%20Pangenesis.pdf"><span>http://www.blc.arizona.edu/courses/schaffer/449/Soft%20Inhertance/Geison%20-%20Pangenesis.pdf</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Butt One More Thing]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Darwin bark spider:</span></p> <p><a href="http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20151126-the-worlds-biggest-spider-web-can-span-an-entire-river"><span>http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20151126-the-worlds-biggest-spider-web-can-span-an-entire-river</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0011234"><span>https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0011234</span></a></p>
