Dan Riskin, evolutionary biologist, author, and co-host of Discovery’s Daily Planet, explores what sets these thinkers apart from their peers, and asks: In a modern world of specialists, can one person ever have such a wide ranging impact again?

Kate Allen, Science and Technology Reporter, Toronto Star
Nila Sivatheesan, Environmental Visual Communication (www.eviscomm.ca) Graduate
Hannah Hoag, Managing Editor and Science Journalist, Arctic Deeply
