If you’re into paleontology, you’ll love it!
I absolutely love this podcast. I am a high school science teacher and this podcast makes me want to go back to graduate school! Dave you are so enthusiastic and inspiring! I listen to this and learn so much. Thank you!
Informative, Diverse, serious yet not heavy
I am late to the party but thrilled I got here. I started at episode one from Years ago and am going all the way through. Absolutely wonderful. They go deep in a thousand directions... depending upon who is there. I THOUGHT I was most interested in Silurian things but in fact I just hadn’t had the benefit of this this spectacular “survey.” I never know where we are going next. Thank you for your efforts. Small point: clearly technology has changed in the last 8/9 years (2012 to 2020). We can hear them getting better at this. Put your feet up. Open the website and look at the supporting materials (amazing) and press play.
