On March 6, 2009, National Public Radio’s Science Friday will shine the spotlight on Arizona State University paleoanthropologist Don Johanson. Host Ira Flatow will discuss Johanson’s major find, the 3.2-million-year-old hominid fossil known as Lucy, as well as other evolutionary advances. Listeners can tune in to their local NPR station or visit the Science Friday Web site for a podcast experience.

Johanson is a professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' School of Human Evolution and Social Change and founding director of the Institute of Human Origins. His latest book, Lucy’s Legacy: The Quest for Human Origins, is being released this month by the Harmony Books imprint of Random House, Inc.
