Play • 1 hr 8 min

Variation in human skin color has fascinated and perplexed people for centuries. As the most visible aspect of human variation, skin color has been used as a basis for classifying people into “races.” In this lecture, Leakey Foundation grantee Dr. Nina Jablonski explains the evolution of human skin color and discusses some of the ways that harmful color-based race concepts have influenced societies and impacted social well-being.

Episode 112: Popes, Popes and More Popes with Pontifacts
Description: For this episode, we have a really fun collaboration with another papal history podcast, Pontifacts with Bry and Fry. The history of the popes of Rome is such a nearly infinite topic, which is great because the institution can be looked at in many different ways. I take more of a scatter shot approach. I pick and choose and follow threads in interesting directions. I like the politics, philosophy, theology and big picture of the Church and its leadership. Pontifacts takes the approach of providing biographies of each pope and evaluating them. I think that is really great and I am very glad to be able to collaborate with two people who are extremely passionate about a topic I am passionate about as well. This will definitely be the first of many collaborations with Bry and Fry.   Learn more about our guest: Pontifacts - https://pontifacts.podbean.com You can learn more about the History of Papacy and subscribe at all these great places: http://atozhistorypage.com/ email: steve@atozhistorypage.com http://rss.acast.com/historyofthepapacy https://www.patreon.com/historyofthepapacy https://www.facebook.com/HistoryOfThePapacyPodcast/ https://twitter.com/atozhistory   The History of the Papacy on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6DO2leym3kizBHW0ZWl-nA   Get Your History of the Papacy Podcast Products Here: https://www.atozhistorypage.com/products   Help out the show by ordering these books from Amazon! https://amzn.com/w/1MUPNYEU65NTF   Music Provided by: "Danse Macabre" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "Virtutes Instrumenti" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "Virtutes Vocis" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "Funeral March for Brass" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) "String Impromptu Number 1" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Agnus Dei X - Bitter Suite Kevin MacLeaod (incomptech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/historyofthepapacy.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
