Episode 13: Santiago Ramón y Cajal

Santiago Ramón y Cajal was an interesting dude. Now considered the father of modern neuroscience, he was a scientist, a talented science illustrator, the first Hispanic to be awarded a Nobel Prize in science, and a science fiction writer who went by the pseudonym "Dr. Bacteria."

And bacteria are so good at adapting because they can take useful genes from their friends -- alive or dead.
