Show Notes

Today's our first official episode of Revolution Science, a series of episodes about the major revolutions that have occurred throughout human history. And it all begins with fire. In this episode, we start by going over the definitions of revolution and evolution. Then we get into describing some of the main theories behind why we think fire is potentially the first revolution for humans.

Here are some of the main ideas we talk about:

- IndigiFacts about the oldest human fossils

- The earliest evidence of fire use by humans

- The different types of evidence

- The "Cooking Hypothesis" and human evolution

- Different uses of fire and its effects on plants
