An Interview With Emma Darwin

Way back in Episode 30 I stepped into a time machine and traveled back to 1869 in order to interview Charles Darwin.  This time around I brought someone forward in time… his wife Emma Darwin.  In this ‘interview’ we talk about Charles, their differences when it came to thoughts on religion and God, as well how his theories troubled him.  Emma reads extracts from some of the letters she had sent to Charles (all of which he saved) to shed light on their relationship and time together, both before and after the publication of On the Origin of Species in 1859.

The voice of Emma Darwin is played by the talented Mackenzie Bryant.
