The World of Civilized Dinos

65 million years ago, a comet wiped out the non-avian dinosaurs on Earth. But what if we just... undid that? In this episode, we imagine what could have happened if that space rock had flown just a few thousand miles to the left.

HOSTED by Moiya McTier (@GoAstroMo), astrophysicist and folklorist
