For this week's episode of The Pulse from WHYY, I contributed to the feature Unnatural Selection (starts at 30:00) as an editor and composer. Fun fact: all the music you hear in the feature is composed from pigeon calls!

From The Pulse's Website:

The Pulse explores how the environment shapes biology. Turns out that influence goes deep, down to the molecular level — to the DNA of humans and animals.

Author-illustrator Katrina van Grouw takes us on pigeon hunt to explain how humans are affecting animal evolution. Her book is Unnatural Selection.
