Protein scientist and writer Danyl McLauchlan joins Kim to tackle life's big questions, ideas and thinkers.

This week he's discussing The Sixth Extinction author Elizabeth Kolbert’s new book on climate change, Under a White Sky, which attempts to find a middle ground between optimism and apocalyptic bleakness. He wrote an essay about it for The Spinoff.

McLauchlan released his first essay collection, Tranquillity and Ruin in February. He's also author of comic novels Unspeakable Secrets of the Aro Valley and Mysterious Mysteries of the Aro Valley.
