Dr. Tosca is a climate scientist, a humanist, an activist. She is an Assistant Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an affiliate climate researcher at JPL (the Jet Propulsion Laboratory) in southern California.  Her current research and public outreach explores the the synthesis of art and climate science and posits that engaging with artists, designers, and makers is instrumental to solving the climate crisis. Mika is an out and proud transgender scientist (she/her pronouns) and a vocal advocate for the queer and trans communities in Chicago and beyond.

Prof. Anand Gnanadesikan joins me to discuss the sensitivity of oceanic oxygen to changes in atmospheric oxygen (specifically, the linear versus nonlinear components of this response), convection in climate models, and polynyas in climate models. (For more on mixing in climate models, go back and listen to the Sonya Legg episode. And for more on polynyas in climate models, go back to the Ethan Campbell episode.) --- Send in a voice message:

Meteorologist, climate journalist, and writer Eric Holthaus talks about his new book, titled "The Future Earth: A Radical Vision for What's Possible in the Age of Warming". We discuss the role of imagination and mutual care in addressing the climate crisis. The new book is available here: --- Send in a voice message:
In the first of this series on Earth System scientists with disabilities, oceanographer Kaitlin Naughten talks about her experience with stammering (a.k.a. stuttering). We talk about a number of topics, including: What is a disability? In particular, what is stammering / stuttering? How does stammering affect life in science? What is the "medical model" of disability? How about the "social model" of disability? Representation and why it matters Special accommodations for people who speak with a stammer How to be a good listener when speaking to someone with a stammer Are there any good things about stammering?  Episode produced by Dan Jones and Kaitlin Naughten  --- Send in a voice message:
Professor Scott Denning from the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University joins me to talk about his semester teaching at sea, his research career working on the global carbon cycle (especially the atmospheric and land portions), and his pathway from geology into atmospheric science --- Send in a voice message:
