Leapin' Lemurs!

First thing this morning, my husband (who is also the Media Producer at Reasons To Believe) went on Drudge and saw the headlines about the "47 million year old missing link in human evolution." He knew he better hurry into work because Fuz would likely want to record a podcast responding to this high-profile story. Sure enough.

So, here are the relevant links:

Wall Street Journal article: "Fossil Discovery Is Heralded"

SkyNews (British) article: "Scientists Unveil Missing Link In Evolution" (This article includes a video segment.)

Technical article: Jens L. Franzen, Philip D. Gingerich, et al, "Complete Primate Skeleton from the Middle Eocene of Messel in Germany: Morphology and Paleobiology," PLoS ONE 4(5): e5723.

RTB response: "Response to What Some are Referring to as the 'Missing Link'"
