great introductory level lectures.

This was a great listen. I really appreciated the assumption that the reader was science-literate.

An excellent presentation of a fascinating subject!

Dr. is a skillful, knowledgable lecturer who was able to convey his knowledge in a way that is understandable to a non-paleontologist.
