Episode 131: Dinosaurs by Distillations Podcast

Today’s show is a blast from the past—the way, way past—as we take a look at a childhood favorite: dinosaurs. It seems, however, that a lot of what is known about these creatures has changed since we were kids. First, we share how new fossil discoveries have fortified the link between birds and dinosaurs. Next, producer Lindsay Patterson follows a scientist who is reclassifying dinosaur families.
