Dr. Ellery Frahm talks about fire and early humans on the Ologies podcast

October 1, 2021

Ellery Frahm is the featured guest on the Ologies podcast this week, hosted by Emmy Award-winning science correspondent and humorist Alie Ward. Each week the podcast features a different topic or field in science (or “-ology”), and Dr. Frahm discusses and answers questions about ancient pyrotechnology, that is, the varied roles of fire and heat in human technology, behavior, and evolution. Along the way, Frahm and Ward talk about mystery writers, sharp rocks, sooty caves, disaster film trivia, iron sparks, burnt feet, wolf skulls, fluffy fungus, and more.
