Thanks for a fun and interesting listen. Listening to a replay at 1 am in my mid-sleep interlude.

As a person raised as a Catholic, I learned we don't HAVE to "scientifically" explain anything at all. It's called FAITH, after all.

Anything else just embarrasses you and your brand of religion.

The ancestors of human beings is interesting, but as Catholics we hold that at some point God intervened did one of two things: either he made a man out of dust, or he took a hominid and replaced the soul with a human soul (first created), and changed the body significantly so it would house a human soul. The finding of neanderthal dna in human beings makes the second situation more likely.
