Like most gay people, we have now watched the HBO series Our Flag Means Death (full season 1 available now!). Unlike most gay people, Charles is a PhD candidate in history and philosophy of biology. In this episode, we touch on several topics in history of science touched on in the show: Linnaean taxonomy and binomial nomenclature, phrenology, and scurvy (caused by humans' inability to synthesize our own Vitamin C, setting us apart from most vertebrates).
A transcript and show notes are available on our website here: https://asabpodcast.com/2022/05/09/episode-49/
The show is on Twitter @ASABpod, Charles @cockroacharles, and Tessa @spacermase.
Our intro music is by Nicole Petkovich.
