    Cryoseismology (ICEQUAKES) with Celeste Labedz

    Cryoseismology (ICEQUAKES) with Celeste Labedz

    Glaciers: Where are they? What are they made of? What happens when chunks splinter off into the sea? There are ICEQUAKES? CalTech Cryoseismologist Celeste Labedz sometimes wears a cape with her snowpants and spends part of her career shooting explosions into giant chunks of ice and recording the seismic activity, analyzing the rivers that flow through glaciers, and keeping tabs on glacial melt. Also discussed: the most goth way to honor a glacier, and whether or not you should visit them IRL.

    Bisonology (BUFFALO) with various bisonologists

    Bisonology (BUFFALO) with various bisonologists

    Bison bison! Not just something to holler into the sky, but also the scientific name for North America's majestic wild bovines that once roamed the plains in the tens of millions. What's up with their humps? On what occasion do they wear capes? What noises do they make? How many are out there? What are the best ways to help them? In this special episode, you get 4x the usual number of ologists as we talk to archeologist Dr. Ken Cannon, wildlife biologist Dr. Dan McNulty, Alie's cousin Boyd and his wife Lila Evans, of the Blackfeet Tribe, who are bison ranchers based in Northern Montana. Also, once and for all: is it buffalo or bison? And can Alie hug one?

From Russia with love

Hi Alie! I’m a big fan of your humor and host’s skills since Slumber Party podcast!! You were always into science and bugs and it’s so nice to see you growing into your own science podcast. Loved each and every episode so far! Thank you and good luck < 3

My weekly dose of pure joy

As an (bio-) ologist already, I can now proudly call myself an ologite too! If I was a teenager listening to this I would have to change my career plans each week, every episode is THAT inspiring. Thank you, Alie!
