Acclaimed science writer Mary Roach has a special place in our pantheon here at “Read Science!”, because she was our guest for our first episode ever. Imagine how delighted we were to welcome her back to talk about her latest book, Grunt : The Curious Science of Humans at War. Despite some technical difficulties with the internet, we still managed a lively discussion about the book, the technology of warfare, the excellent help that researchers get from human cadavers willed to science, and plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits.
