There was a bad accident on my commute to work yesterday, which meant I got to hear the after-9-am segment on The Current (a rare treat). It featured Dan Riskin, the author of a new book about how brutal the natural world really is.

It’s not letting me embed the audio, but you can listen here.
I think my friend AGH should consider starting his own blog, as this is the second awesome thing he has sent me in as many days.
Clean, compelling and clever. Via.
