Royally Screwed

The three knights of the technically round podcast table dig up some royal genetic gossip after the remains of Richard III were discovered under a parking structure in England.  That’s right, the Brits paved Richard III’s paradise, and then put up a parking lot.  Analysis of his skeleton implicates the royal family in some extra-marital shenanigans.  Raj reminisces about his royal encounters in college.  Jono explains the genetic importance of an athletic mom, and Joe spoils the first episode of Game of Thrones.


The paper:  “Identification of the remains of King Richard III”  (King et al., 2014)
