The episode above was largely about evolution. If you're new to the subject and want to learn more, here are some good places to start:

The Origin Of Species

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

Why Evolution Is True

The Selfish Gene (a Charlie Munger recommendation)

The Extended Phenotype

The Blind Watchmaker

Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters

And though a bit older and technologically dated from 1991, Richard Dawkins' 1991 Christmas Lectures are also excellent, and they are available HERE.
