Lying + Cheating
with Michael Angilletta | Charity of the week: Goodwill

Michael Angilletta is an evolutionary biologist who studies adaptation to changing environments. Every animal relies on behavior and physiology to avoid stress, but these solutions aren't free. Behavioral and physiological strategies consume energy or impose risk—costs that must be weighed against the potential benefits.

This week we talk climate change and why animals lie, steal, and cheat.
