Radiolab: Guts

How do our squishy guts work? How did we figure out that the stomach is where digestion takes place, and the bowels were not, indeed, the “seat of human sympathy”? Why was a disfigured hunter considered a walking scientific marvel, and why were people licking his stomach*? Find out all that and more in this latest Radiolab podcast!

Featuring Mary Roach, Carl Zimmer, and, of course, Jad and Robert. Lots of good old science, new science, bacteria, and acid!

*The latter part of this question may or may not be answered. But it happened.
