The following description comes from the event organizer.

Throughout history, poop has been used as a currency, as a weapon and as a medical treatment. We’ll explore how creatures large and small produce this crucial waste product, and discover how the evolution of the human gut may have been the key to our dominance in the animal kingdom.

Chelsea Whyte is a senior news editor at New Scientist magazine. She has worked as a staff journalist at New Scientist since 2017, in previous roles as a US reporter and as the physics and space news editor.
