Clever Apes Gets Mesozoic

The latest episode of Chicago Public Radio's podcast Clever Apes is all about dinosaurs. Two sides of Chicago's dinosaur coin make appearances, with University of Chicago superstar paleontologist Paul Sereno popping in, as well as a bit from rising star nerd comic Dan Telfer of "The Best Dinosaur" fame.

From the Clever Apes site:
There’s no question: The dinosaurs of our youth have been irrevocably humbled. And yet movies, kids’ books and advertisements still perpetuate all kinds of misconceptions about dinosaurs that scientists long ago left behind. So why is it that dinosaur myths die so hard?
I can't help but notice the tie in with Brian Switek's recently announced book deal for Date with a Dinosaur, which he says will explore how science has changed many of the views of dinosaurs we held as children. Congrats, Brian! Can't wait to see what you have in store.
