The Best Of Our Knowledge #1617: Ya Gotta Have Heart
This week, we discuss the heart with author Bill Schutt.
When Bill Schutt writes a book, it tends to get messy, at least his non-fiction books. His first was called “Dark Banquet” which dealt with vampire bats and other creatures who feed on blood.

Bill Schutt is a zoologist, Emeritus Professor of Biology at LIU Post, and a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History.
