Supporter podcast - The Nate Files episode 8: Bah, Humboldt!

Throw me the penguin!

Gather ye close, gentle listener, for this month's supporter funded podcast, The Nate Files. In episode 8 we learn all about the giants on whose shoulders Darwin stands. This includes Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt, a man who has apparently had everything on the planet named after him.

Oh alright, thank you very much to our supporters for making The Nate Files happen each month. If I could I'd name a penguin species after all of you.
