This one's going to be a panel discussion, tonight! Some interesting people, and an interesting topic.

Tune in online, and ask questions and make comments! It'll probably run longer than the show that makes it to iTunes, so don't miss any "extras"!

If you think it's work, you're doing it wrong.

Cool subject!
This week, we’re featuring a panel discussion on the origins and influence of tradition, with biological anthropologist Greg Laden, science education researcher Marie-Claire Shanahan, ethnomusicologist Kyra Gaunt-Palmer, and primatologist Eric Michael Johnson. We’ll discuss where traditions come from, why some endure and some fade, and whether they appear in non-human populations.

We record live with our panel on Sunday, November 2o at 6 pm MT. The podcast will be available to download at 9 pm MT on Friday,November 25 .

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

tradition: (n.) 1. what you follow before you learn better. 2. like bicycle training wheels for your mind before it matures.
