Since the beginning of civilizations, people have been developing technologies to allow them to go out on the water. Seafaring has been critical for trade, conquest and warfare. Our guest tonight on Inquiry is maritime historian Lincoln Paine who has written a stunning new monumental book titled The Sea and Civilizaton: A Maritime History of the World. Tune in and learn about how the peoples of Oceania navigated out-riggers and double canoes across the wide Pacific thousands of years ago. Tonight we welcome back Richard A. Bradley, Associate Professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at The Ohio State University for part 3 of a conversation about his wonderful new guide Common Spiders of North America. Tonight we talk about what happens to spiders in the winter, why spiders often come in your house and how common really dangerous spiders are, including tarantulas. Spoiler alert: tarantulas may look really scary, but looks can be deceiving.
