  • Riassunto

  • We're living through a golden age of paleontological research that, in the last couple of decades, has radically changed our understanding of dinosaurs. Through candid interviews with the world's top paleontologists, Professor Ben Garrod reveals new dinosaur facts from cutting edge research into the greatest animals ever to walk the planet.

    When we're young, we all have a favourite dinosaur but, as time passes, other aspects of life get in the way. This is ultimate guide for grown-ups who have lost touch with their favourite childhood dinosaurs.

    From the earliest cat-sized dinosaurs to enormous, feathered dinosaurs, there have been many significant discoveries in only the last 30 years. Every day we are learning more about the way the dinosaurs behaved and ultimately what happened to them at the very end.

  • Ep. 1: What Is a Dinosaur?

    Jul 10 2019

    With such huge diversity in both form and habits, what is it that makes a dinosaur distinct from a crocodile or a lizard?

    Ben explores the stores in London’s Natural History Museum to meet the earliest known dinosaur and learns of the cataclysmic events that came about at the dawn of this incredible group of animals.

  • Ep. 2: Size Matters

    Jul 10 2019

    After millions of years as the underdog amongst much bigger, meaner animals, the end-Triassic mass extinction event gave the dinosaurs their chance to flourish... and boy did they grow big!

    Ben meets some of the biggest animals to ever walk the earth, finds out how we know how big they got, and how and why they reached such huge sizes.

  • Ep. 3: Feathered Freaks

    Jul 10 2019

    A discovery in China in the mid-nineties changed how we picture dinosaurs forever. It was the first fossil of a feathered dinosaur ever found and it finally proved unequivocally that birds are the direct decedents of dinosaurs.

    Ben hears about an amazing discovery that sheds light on when, and why, feathers first evolved and what fossilised feathers can tell us about the colour of dinosaurs.

Wonderful

I highly recommend this book to everyone. I was mind-blown by the fact that birds are dinosaurs--no really they are LITERALLY living dinosaurs. The most famous dinosaurs--including T-Rex--were literally also birds complete with feathers. Velociraptor was the size of a modern day chicken and also had feathers. This is a must-listen if you are at all interested at all in dinosaurs or birds.

Need to see not hear

Not good for audibles. The host keeps talking about things he is showing us. You cannot simply take the audio from a video and label it a podcast.

Enjoyable listen

Each show ia to the point and I felt included only the most interesting and relavent information. I like listening to to when I'm going to sleep, but sometimes it's too interesting and I stay awake!

Dinosaurs rule!

This is awesome! As a child, I found dinosaurs fascinating. Growing up, I grew out of them but always got a little excited when a new species was discovered. As an adult, nostalgia kicked in and a lot of the films and stories I loved as a kid became relevant once more. That also included my love for science and of course dinosaurs. It’s a fun hobby nowadays to read up and listen to new information about these amazing creatures and this series of episodes has been very informative and interesting. A must listen to for people with kids who love dinosaurs, or just have a craving for more information on their favorite thing as a kid! It’s content like this that makes Audible worth every penny.

Wish there was more!

This kept me interested! I was worried how an audible book would fare with so much of the content reliant on pictures, but the host did a great job painting those pictures!

Good Listen for old Dinosaur Fans

A lot has happened in paleontology since I haunted the American Museum of Natural History in the late1950s, and I want to be ready for my grandchilds’ dinosaur phase. This podcast will be a big help. A little gee whiz, but overall lots of good, cutting edge, up to date info b

Came for my grandson, stayed cause I’m now hooked

My grandson, who is now 11, has been fascinated by dinosaurs since before we can remember. So I purchased this book to get a better understanding about both his fascination with dinosaurs and so that I can for once communicate with him about the topic. And now I find myself to be very much the dinosaurphile. Excellent in it’s story telling. Loaded with science yet not boringly didactic.

podcast/episode series

A lot of fun. I listen to documentaries while I work so this was great. Sometimes I wanted to look at what they were talking about (only downside).

misophonia? give it a miss

too much extraneous noise and general stuff going on. you dont have to be opening and closing doors and talking to the public to tell me about dinosaurs.

Our Feathered Friends!

Having been a bit critical of some of these podcasts because they really didn't tell me much about subjects that I knew very little about this came as a really refreshing change. It has depth, a Dino version of Prof Brian Cox and most importantly some real depth without ever getting too nerdy.

Thoroughly recommended!

Loved this

Really interesting and accessible with a great presenter. His 'Chris Pratt' moment was superb! Was disappointed by his little lecture at the end about us killing the planet. Preaching to the choir... But we'll worth (several) listens.

Dino-mite!

This series was absolutely amazing! I binged the entire series it was so good. The narration was excellent, the information contained was eye opening, and the warning at the end was extremely poignant. Definitely worth a listen.

A super story read beautifully.

Professor Garrod has a rich and engaging voice and the story of the rise and fall of the dinosaurs is exciting and surprising. Who knew, for example, that those terrible lizards in the Jurassic Park kitchen were not velociraptors?
