Talking Neuroanthropology with Dr. Kiki

Kiki Sanford was kind enough to invite me onto her show, Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour. Dr. Kiki earned a PhD in neuroscience before moving onto science journalism, and it was great fun to talk with her for 50 minutes about neuroanthropology, from how brains, bodies, and culture meet up to what the implications of those interactions are for both research and human society. Here’s the video:

    Yeah, baby, we’re a ‘love child’… ohhh, be-havvvve!

    still listening, but had to comment on that one. I’m lovin’ it.

    Great interview, Daniel.

    Dr. Kiki did a great job of drawing out some of the key issues — and you, of course, were all over that. That analogy between blogging and teaching was especially good. I never thought of it, but you’re right: the genres are quite close in many cases.

    Well done. I wonder how many folks will find us for the first time because of that interview…

  3. Wow, that was extraordinary! Not only do I now feel like I have some idea of what neuroanthropology is (for the first time), but that was one of the best contextualizations of anthropology I’ve heard in a long time. Really an excellent interview, and a service to the field of anthropology! I was riveted – this was the longest internet video I’ve sat through since Wesch’s “Anthropological Introduction to You-Tube.” Great job!
