What can we learn about ocean animals that can tell us about the environment? What happens to birds when they take their physiologies to their limits? How close are we to seeing a sub-two hour marathon?

This is a somewhat different episode of the podcast in which I talk to three speakers from this year’s Humanature conference. The conference brings together experts from a number of fields to explore the links between extreme life and human performance and health.

I was fortunate enough to have three short conversations with:

Dr. Andreas Fahlman about the physiology of marine animals and what that means for the health of our environment;

 

 

Dr. Carl Soulsbury about birds “exercising” to their limits and beyond;

 

Dr. Andrew Jones about his work on Nike’s bold recent effort to crack the sub-two hour marathon.

 

These were all short conversations that took place in London’s Natural History Museum.
