For anyone in the US who likes to know what it's like inside a giraffe (hands up, people), it was frustrating to discover the show Inside Nature's Giants airing on British TV. The best we could manage were snippets on YouTube. Now the show is here in the States. The other day I spent some time with one of the main scientists of the show, Joy Reidenberg, an anatomist at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I've written a profile of her, both as a researcher who's discovering fascinating new things about whales, and as that most improbable thing: a celebrity anatomist. Check it out. Be sure to take a look at the extras on the page, such as the podcast, video, and graphic instructions for how to dissect a 50-ton whale. [Photo courtesy of Joy Reidenberg]
