Dr. Adam Van Arsdale, a Professor of Anthropology at Wellesley College, chats with Chris and Cara about why and how we need to rethink the way human anatomical evolution is taught. He discusses his recent presentations at the AABA in Denver and highlights his talk with Dr. Robin Nelson on the inconsistencies in how the term “population” is used by anthropologists.
