Join Spencer Wells on an epic journey that spans the globe, revealing an incredible tapestry of human diversity along the way. As director of National Geographic’s Genographic Project, Spencer Wells has an extraordinary goal – using DNA from participants around the world to document and create the first-ever map of human migration, showing how humans came to populate the planet after leaving the cradle of Africa some 60,000 years ago, a journey about which little has been known until now.

Wells has been a guest on The Daily Show and TODAY, and has also been a presenter at a renowned TED Conference.
