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.
2021 Year in Review
Frances and Andrew let their hair down and do a quick review of some of the stories that made the ocean news pipeline in 2021. Stories include, but are not limited to, the UN Decade of the Ocean, 30 by 30 ocean protection, the circling hellhole of the ocean on fire, the Netflix shockumentary "SeaSpiracy," and more!
Join us on the last show of the year!

October 2021 Mini Episode
Welcome to the miniepisode where we give you a few updates for the month! Got an idea for the podcast? Want to ask a question? Email us at OceanSciRadio@gmail.com.
Talk Like a Pirate Day is a Lie, and Other Piratey Things
Frances and Andrew sit down with Dr. Jamie Goodall, military historian, expert on golden age piracy, and author of the book Pirates of the Chesapeake Bay: From the Colonial Era to the Oyster Wars. We learn about our misconceptions of pirates, go over some lesser-known pirates, and talk about what elements and behaviors of pirates have remained to this day. Come for the bad pirate impressions, stay for the terrible pirate puns!
The Godzilla Shark and Sharkcon
A familiar voice returns to the show, our former co-host shark scientist Vicky Vásquez comes at us with a live report from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. There she gets introduced to one of the best-preserved examples of ancient sharks the world has seen. In addition, our own Francis Farabaugh tells us about the SharkCon, an annual event in Florida where she gave a talk about her experiences and research.
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!
