Podcasts of the week

InOurTime podcast on the BBC is back. This week: The Empire of Mali.

I don't know if they will mention the controversy if Mali's navy reached the Americas (before Colombus), but the controversy that they inspired the Olmec heads is off about two milleneum.

on the other hand, there is a lot of stuff out there about DNA showing other DNA coming to the Americas... no, the Kennebec man was related to local tribes, but what about that funny "indigenous Australian" DNA in the Amazon basin? A lot of detail still has to be found...

on a lighter note, ProfessorBob's podcast this week is about Napoleon redecorating his house in Elba...
