In episode 19, we dissect the Sasquatch genome paper with David Winter (@the_atavism). Spoiler alert: still not real. Also, looking for a radical new weight loss solution? Well, don't try bot flies. Seriously. Morgan and Bug Girl explain why it's a really stupid idea.

Note: we've gotten comments about who we are. I've had reports that I can't reproduce of the video starting at the 2 minute mark or so; if you're looking to see who we are, make sure you're starting at the very beginning, because we introduce ourselves pretty thoroughly. Also - though this is completely irrelevant to the content of the paper we're talking about - 3 of us (David, Bug, and I) all have our doctorates and are not students. You can find out more about us at http://breakingbio.com/about/

(Also, for bonus points, here's Ketchum herself talking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkoPI..., in which she says that the unknown male nuclear DNA comes from some kind of *lemur*).

Sea levels, for Paul. http://www.cmar.csiro.au/sealevel/sl_...
