BioTA Podcast

BioTA Podcast


The name of this podcast comes from the Greek word meaning life. It’s also an acronym for the full name of the podcast, Biology Through Audio. My goal is to introduce listeners to biology in a way that helps them understand, explain, compare, and evaluate different biological phenomena that we encounter every day. To do this, I’ll draw from current events, past events, and what I think are some really interesting biological examples. At the end of each episode, you’ll find supporting references and additional resources in case you want to explore further. This episode continues my interview with Dr. Leland Bement. He picks up where the previous episode ended by explaining how archaeologists determined the migration behaviors of the ancient bison at the Cooper Bison Kill Site. He also describes other aspects of bison hunting and life of the Folsom people that were learned from studying the Cooper site.
