How We Figured Out Fermentation

Thanks to a recent adaptation, instead of getting sick from the boozy, fermented fruits, one of our primate ancestors could digest them safely, and get more calories at the same time. This new superpower would open up a whole new nutritional landscape for us: fermented foods.

Special thanks to Julio Lacerda (https://twitter.com/JulioTheArtist) for the excellent fruit and ape ancestor illustrations for this episode!

Additional illustrations by Jack Byrley (https://twitter.com/bedupolker) and Fabrizio de Rossi (https://www.facebook.com/ArtofFabricious/)
