I just listened to another interesting podcast from the Science in the City series: Callum Roberts‘ talk The Unnatural History of the Sea (I can’t link directly to it; go to the podcast listing and page in reverse chronological order until you find it. This podcast was released on October 26, 2007).
In this talk, Professor Roberts outlines human exploitation of the oceans thorughout history. It’s an interesting mix of biology and anthropology. However, it’s a depressing talk as well. Over and over in his talk, Professor Roberts picks a time and place and then outlines the stages of sea exploitation that took place.
