Richard Dawkins: Books Do Furnish A Life

44 min listen

In This Episode

Richard tells me – among much else – what makes science writing (and science fiction) exciting; the questions science can (and can’t) answer; why he felt it necessary to invest so much of his time arguing against religion; and why the left recurrent laryngeal nerve of the giraffe is such an odd shape.


A blooming good offer
