Ocean Science Radio is a joint project between Andrew Kornblatt, founder and host of the Online Ocean Symposium, and Naomi Frances Farabaugh of FIU.
Previous co-host was Samantha Wishnak, Digital Media Coordinator at Ocean Exploration Trust. The program will focus on and highlight the latest and greatest ocean science stories that the world has to offer.
Ocean Aero and the Autonomous Underwater and Surface Vehicle Triton
In this episode the team is covering the latest exciting development out of the AUV/ROV market, Ocean Aero’s Triton. We interview Kevin Decker, the CEO of Ocean Aero and Andy Ziegwied, the Vice President of ocean data for Ocean Aero.
Salesforce's Ocean Sustainability Initiative
The month of June is National Ocean month in the United States and June 8th was World Oceans Day. Organizations across the globe use World Oceans Day and the month of June to make announcements on initiatives and commitments that relate to our oceans.

The Squidmobile, going viral, and the free labor problem in science communication
The team speaks with Dr Sarah McAnulty, a squid biologist, and the executive director of Skype a Scientist about going viral, cephalopods, and how our world seems to expect free labor from the science communication community.
The Blue Economy and the 100 companies who own the ocean
We explore the ocean economy with the help of Henrik Österblom, science director at Stockholm University and also a professor of environmental sciences. and John Virdin, director of the ocean policy research program at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for environmental policy solutions. Henrik, John, and their team published a paper revealing the dominance of the ocean economy by 100 companies and what the implications are with that consolidation of power and resources.
March Mammal Madness and Storytelling in Science
March Mammal Madness, the annual tournament of imaginary combat pitting species against species is back, in its 9th year. Organizers cite scientific literature to substantiate likely outcomes when two species fight in glorious battle in environments both suited for their evolutionary traits, and completely random ones. The Ocean Science Radio team interviews founder Professor Katherine Hinde, of Arizona State University, and fight "announcer" Professor Josh Drew, of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, about this amazing event, how battles are decided, and how impactful this event has been in science communications efforts.

Ocean Lovin 2022 - Monterey Bay Aquarium and Jellybabbies
It is February which means it is time for another episode of OCEAN LOVIN'. This time we speak with Michael Howard, Senior Aquarist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium about the reproductive strategies of deep-water hydrozoan jellies, and other related species, where some have the hydroid (jellybaby) stage of the life cycle on other living animals! We also talk about how aquariums and scientists collect species and keep them alive and provide the optimal conditions for them to reproduce. Come for the science, stay for the jellybabies!
Great introduction for the complete noob
Very much enjoy the show and how accessible it has made a new subject for me. The episodes are the perfect length too.
fun and informative
I don't know much about ocean science so this podcast is a fun way to approach a new subject. The information is scientific and solid but it's not over my head and the episodes are fairly short so it's not overwhelming. I'm definitely learning a lot.
Informative & Fun!
I'll admit that while I consider myself an environmental activist, I don't actually know too much about ocean science - this has been a great resource for me!
