This episode is a recording of the talk "Evolution Under the Influence: Alcohol and the Coevolution of Humans and Yeast" by geneticist Dr. Kevin McCabe who works at Full Sail Brewing in Hood River, Oregon. In this talk, Kevin will take you through the history of primate alcohol consumption, the importance of yeast to human history, and how early microbiology turned the tables on yeast and gave humans control over our boozy destiny.
