    13 - Kenny Tapp, Online Professor

    13 - Kenny Tapp, Online Professor

    Ten years ago, 77% of college students in the U.S. took at least some classes online. But among students that took online classes, only 39% said they offer the same educational value as in-person classes, according to Pew Research. Over the past year, those attitudes have changed. 60% of students and faculty in the U.S. are more optimistic about online learning. And 3 out of 4 students would consider fully-online courses in the future, according to a large survey reported by Inside Higher Ed in April.

    As college classes across the US are beginning the fall semester, the demand for online classes only seems to go up, and with it the demand for instructors that can teach online. But what is it like to be an online professor, and how to prepare for this career path? I spoke with Kenny Tapp, who has been teaching meteorology, physical geography, and astronomy, on campus, and for over a decade online — first part-time, and then full-time — at a number of colleges in the U.S.

    12 - Katharine Hayhoe, TNC Chief Scientist

    12 - Katharine Hayhoe, TNC Chief Scientist

    Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is a towering figure in the world of climate science. Her work changed our ability to develop climate change solutions and expanded the public’s understanding of the effects of climate change. She recently accepted an offer to be the next Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy. And today, June 1, is actually her first day on the new job. 

    We met with her a few weeks ago, virtually, to talk about her plans with TNC, about how researchers can better communicate climate change action, and where she sees humanity in this moment it its progress on tackling climate change.

    This is our longest episode yet, but it’s worth listening to, because we had a lot to talk about and she had a lot to say.

    11 - Julian Reyes, AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow

    Collaboration between science and policy is essential to create meaningful legislation and international agreements on climate change and other important issues. We talked to Dr. Julian Reyes, climate scientist and AAAS STP Fellow at the U.S. State Department, about his current work, his career path, and why it is important to have scientists at the policy table.

    10 - Native American Perspectives on Climate Change Adaptation

    10 - Native American Perspectives on Climate Change Adaptation

    Native American Tribes have lived in North America for thousands of years, navigating various climates to support their livelihoods. Yet, their expertise is often left out of the conversation around climate change adaptation. The USGS Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC) network have established close partnerships with Native Tribes, to produce actionable science for resource managers and to provide research and training opportunities for Tribal university students to integrate traditional knowledge and scientific research.
    Adrienne Wootten, postdoc at the South Central CASC, talked to three Tribal undergraduate students working at the center: Peyton Cavnar (Apache and Comanche) and Matthew Armor (Chickasaw), students at the University of Oklahoma, and Kieren Daley Laursen (Chickasaw) at Colorado State University.

    09 - Dilshanie Perera, postdoc in climate and inequality at the NYC Climate Museum

    We’ve all visited museums. We know what art museums and history museums look like. But what does a museum look like that focuses on climate and climate change? What exactly does it do, and who works there? To answer these questions, we chatted with Dr. Dilshanie Perera, who in September joined the New York City Climate Museum as postdoctoral fellow in climate and inequality.

    08 - Joseph Trujillo, Hispanic weather risk communication researcher

    Spoken in 11 percent of all U.S. households, Spanish is the second-most common language in the U.S. behind English. But when it comes to communicating the risks and dangers of tornadoes, hurricanes, or other severe weather events, meteorologists around the country use terms as they see fit, without knowing if their diverse audiences understand them and act appropriately. Joseph Trujillo, a Peruvian master student at the University of Oklahoma, is trying to change that. Using his expertise in Spanish, meteorology, and weather broadcasting, he is developing a unified set of weather terms in Spanish, and he is developing trainings for professional broadcast meteorologists to use them.
