A group in Iowa City celebrates Darwin Day every year by highlighting the work of modern evolutionary scientists and providing professional development for science teachers around the state. This year's event is happening Friday and Saturday February 22 and 23, and during this Talk of Iowa conversation, host Charity Nebbe talks with three reserachers who will be presenting at this year's conference. 

Guests include Jeanne Serb, Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology and the Director of the Office of Biotechnology at Iowa State University; Ana Duggan, a post-doctoral fellow at McMaster University; and Sharon DeWitte, an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of South Carolina.
