About Us

Common Descent is a podcast about the fascinating diversity of life, past and present!

David and Will are science communicators with backgrounds in paleontology. We love talking about our favorite science, so we figured instead of keeping our chats between us, we could put our conversations out on the internet for anyone who might want to listen in.

This blog is where we put extra stuff for the episodes: pictures, links, more explanation, and whatever else fits.

You can also find Common Descent on Twitter and Facebook.
