I've been helping to produce a new podcast called The Show About Titanic. It's hosted by my friend Edward who knows everything there is to know about the Titanic. This episode is called "Halomonas Titanicae with Bhavleen Kaur" and all of you science fans are going to love it! Bhavleen Kaur is a Senior Scientist at the Ontario Science Centre. Dr. Kaur’s doctoral research into microbial life on the wreck of the Titanic led to the discovery of a new bacterial species, Halomonas titanicae. On this episode of The Show About Titanic, she describes to Edward how she got interested in these metal-munching bacteria. Subscribe to The Show About Titanic where ever you listen to podcasts!
