Description

If you're on this planet, plants have a HUGE impact on your life. Whether you're a vegan, a carnivore, or somewhere in between, plants are the basis of the food you eat, the clothes your wear, and the air you breathe. We don't intend just to teach you plant facts (though we'll do plenty of that), but to give you some insight into the cool people who work with them. From the soil to the plate to the climate, dive into the anthropology of plants (get it?) and learn a little more about why you should care about the world around you from the people who care about it the most.

I'll be honest, my heart is super heavy this week and I struggled with today's episode. Between my first plan falling through and just not feeling my backup idea, I was pretty lost until I remembered this little recording I did with my son Bradley from the end of March. It's silly, kind of pointless, and chaotic, and I hope it's a fun distraction from...well all the everything going on. Hang in there, friends. Be bold, smart, and kind in all your interactions and in your lives. **************************************************************************************************************This week's promo is for my upcoming show with my friend Erfan Vafaie, Jolly Green Scientists!

Memes. Olives. Guerrilla ecologists. What do all these things have in common? We talk about them all in this awesome episode with Rhett Barker and Curtis Sarkin from Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends. They were gracious enough to re-record with me after I had some technical problems and I'm so glad they did. We laugh a ton about memes and get serious about ecology. You're going to love it!

Hey Plant People! I'm SO excited about today's episode. Paige Boyle is a Presidential Doctoral Research Fellow at Utah State, an advocate for Women in STEM, a self-proclaimed "earthworm whisperer," and a wonderful human. We talked about her experiences in graduate school, how completely freaking WILD earthworms are, how to plug in as a graduate student (and important it is to be able to say now), and what's it's like to be a woman in a STEM field. It was so much chatting with her and I think you'll get a lot out of this conversation!

What's up plant people? I recorded the episode with my friends Amber Bates and Kaylee Deck of Grove Hill Farms like 1000 years ago, and I can't wait for you to hear it! Their business is a super rad agrotourism operation in North Texas and was such a beautiful place to record. I got to sit in Amber's dining room in her home on the farm and catch up with these two wonderful humans. Make sure you go check out Grove Hill Farms if you're ever in the Dallas metroplex or in North Texas (or Southern Oklahoma, for that matter)!

What's up, Plant People?? I have a great one for you today. I sat down (several months ago, actually) with my dear friend Kristin Bingham to talk about plants, college education, and just life in general. Kristin is an Assistant Professor of Biology at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. She also runs the greenhouse and gardens at SPC (sound familiar?) and is super hilarious. There are actually times I'm concerned we're the same person Kristin is also the host of the Catabolic Conversations Podcast (more info below) with her colleague, Dr. Megan Keith.You'll LOVE hearing Kristin's thoughts on the twists and turns our lives take as we figure out what we want to be, on plants and science, and on how to be successful as a student.I mentioned all kinds of new stuff that's going on in today's episode!

What's up, Plant People? It's your host, Vikram Baliga, back again with Episode 7! Listen, do you like water? Of course you do! I know for a fact you like to drink, eat, bathe (at least I hope), and, well, just have the ability to live in general. Water is totally necessary for life and 100% irreplaceable to us as living organisms. It's a good thing there are people like Katherine Drury out there! Katherine is the Education and Outreach Coordinator with the High Plains Underground Water Conservation District on the Southern High Plains of Texas. I sat down with Katherine to talk about everything from her love of gardening to how different types of aquifers store and supply water to so much of North America. She's fun, personable, smart, and an excellent science communicator with experience in traditional news media, horticulture, water conservation, and so many other things. Katherine and I have been friends for years and I think you're really going to learn a lot and have a bunch of fun listening to this episode!You can find Katherine and the HPUWCD at the websites and social media outlets below!.  Enjoy the show and let me know what you think! http://www.hpwd.org/https://www.facebook.com/hpuwcdhttps://www.instagram.com/hpuwcd/https://twitter.com/HPUWCDhttps://twitter.com/KatherineDrury1As always, thanks so much for listening!
