Thought others may enjoy this interview about "Darwin and Wonder" on Speaking of Faith:
It's an interview with Darwin biographer James Moore and it explores Darwin's long and careful struggle with reconciling his Victorian upbringing and the difficulty he had in upsetting long-standing traditions with his discoveries.
Some interesting things I've heard so far include Darwin's hatred of slavery as part of his motivation in explaining how life evolved.
