The Inner Fish speaks: Neil Shubin makes a guest appearance on Pharyngula


Neil Shubin, recent guest on The Colbert Report, author of the cover story of this month's Natural History magazine, author of the newly released book, Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body (amzn/b&n/abe/pwll), and most significantly, well known scientist and co-discoverer of the lovely transitional fossil, Tiktaalik roseae, has made a guest post on Pharyngula, describing his experiences in preparing for appearing on television — it's good stuff to read if you're thinking of communicating science to the mass media, or if you're a fan of either Shubin or Colbert.

Shubin apparently reads Pharyngula now and then, and he'll probably take a look at the comments on that article — if you've got questions, ask away, and maybe we'll get lucky and he'll grace us with a reply.
