Paige Patchin is joined by science journalist, Angela Saini, for a conversation on her book Superior: The Return of Race Science, discussing the resurgence of race science, pseudoscientific racial myths and problematic narratives of human difference. Angela looks at how the changing figure of the Neanderthal is an example of how the circle of humanity can be used as tool of racism in science, and discusses the implications of race science in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
