Douglas Adams on Evolution, Parrots & Predators


"Douglas Adams was the best-selling British author and satirist who created The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In this talk at UCSB recorded shortly before his death, Adams shares hilarious accounts of some of the apparently absurd lifestyles of the world's creatures, and gleans from them extraordinary perceptions about the future of humanity."

This is a long video, but very good.

It was quite good. He's a very engaging speaker. Thanks for posting this. I ordered the book based on the excerpts he read and am looking forward to reading it.

"Last Chance to See" is a phenomenal book and I dearly wish he wrote more nature books.

Thanks for posting this. It was wonderful.
