    The link to “Out of the Forest” on Aeon sadly doesn’t work. If it was about the work of Jeremy DeSilva on the early origin of bipedalism he is interviewed on this recent video: and his 2021 book on the subject is First Steps. I have read about a quarter of the book and provisionally recommend it, even if the article is about something else.
