The latest entry on the Rising Star Expedition blog is a link to the National Geographic Weekend radio show, in which Lee Berger tells the story of the discovery from beginning to end. “A Voice From the Cave: Lee Berger on the NG Weekend Radio Show”

Now that the field season has wrapped theres been time to look back and see the story as a whole, from Pedro Boshoff's original commission to seek out new fossil sites in the caves of the Cradle of Humankind, to the phenomenal final tally of more than a thousand hominid fossil elements discovered and identified.
