We launch our new series of podcast episodes - science in movies! With Dr. Rutger Vos, an evolutionary biologist from Leiden University and Naturalis Biodiversity Center, both in The Netherlands. In our inaugural science podcast episode we talk about the evolution of humans from apes, and how this theme is portrayed in movies. Our movies of choice: the original Planet of the Apes (1968), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and Altered States (1980). What do these movies say about how we view ourselves? Our predecessors? Our evolution? And what do they say about the scientific thought when they were made.
