Podcast Episode 31 Animal Geeks – The Bering Land Bridge

   We dust off our time machine to head back 10000 years to visit Beringia.  Harri gets a bit freaked out at the thought of Smilodon (Saber-toothed tiger) attack.  We discuss the migration of humans to modern day North and South America, Australia and Japan.  Xanthe contemplates getting stuck in Beringia and the kind of Hunger Games-esque bow skills that would be required.
