This week, Nicholas and Alayna dive into the weird world of genes and the way they affect our lives. Learn about the mechanisms behind inheritance and evolution, natural selection, and how species of animals gain the traits we observe in them. Also, genetic engineering!!

FULL EPISODE:

 

For our Main Interview Segment this week, Nicholas wanted to know how evolution can affect the behaviour of animals, including humans! We talked with Dr. Bob Wong, a behavioural ecologist from Monash University, to discover some interesting things about how animal and human behaviours can evolve.
