    TWiST 7: Proceedings

    Hosts: Michael Coyne, Matthew Godfrey and Manjula Tiwari

    Don't be confused. We recorded two episodes at once. Episodes 6 and 7 were recorded back to back and I just split the file. In the second half (episode 7) we discuss the recent kerfuffle surrounding the Annual Sea Turtle Symposium proceedings initiated by Peter Pritchard's editorial in MTN 115.

    And a funny rebuke of Stephen Colbert and the Colbert Report from The Motley Fool.
