Love this podcast!

Thanks for your work on this podcast- please keep up the great content! Your conversation with Anna Jones is particularly helpful to me as a student contemplating what which area I want to focus on- oceanography, environmental studies, ecology, etc..

You're Doing Great Work

Hi Dan,

keep up the great work you are doing here. I'm getting a PhD in mathematics at a small school (Northern Illinois University). I don't have much reach in the science community, but I am extending the reach I do have to you. I have told a number of friends and faculty in math and science to listen and download this podcast. I feel like my math friends, in particular, will dig this format. I urge you to keep bringing on applied mathematicians that do modeling in climatology like Dr. Mcintyre. I really enjoyed that episode. I hope you can keep it going and I wish you the best of luck!
