    • Science

In this episode we begin to interview Dr. Richard Merrick, a Scientist Emeritus with NOAA  whose past research focused on technology development and marine mammals, including radio tagging and tracking Steller Sea Lions. We talk about how Richard pivoted from a career in architecture into being a scientist, how his scientific journey has taught him about how to camp and cope with long bouts of isolation, his thoughts on the importance of social scientists to communicate imminent information with the public in today's world, and his highly engaging story of the time he was stranded while doing field research in the Aleutian Islands.
