For the fourth oceans episode, Marta sat down with three physical oceanographers at WHOI this summer to discuss ocean circulation. Dr. Mike Spall and Dr. Chris Piecuch explain large-scale circulation and its importance in climate, and grad student Mara Freilich discusses her research on vertical motion of seawater and its relevance for ecosystems.
For the third oceans episode, Marta sat down with Dr. Hauke Kite-Powell from WHOI, Melissa Baldino from Duke, Sally Dowd from Berkeley, and Maddie Schumm from UT Austin to discuss marine policy and marine resource management and the research that goes into it. Listen in to learn about ecosystem services, economic models for fisheries, ecosystem models for aquaculture, and animal behavior in a noisy ocean.
Marta discusses rising sea levels with experts from  Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Colorado College. Listen in as we dive deeper into the complexities of ocean science and sea-level rise.

Pam Wildstein 8:24 PMThis week, Pam and special guest Juliet push through the cold that’s been going around campus to bring you an in-depth analysis of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones. Did anyone ask for this? No! Did Pam make it anyway? Yes! Turns out a show about dragons and sword fights has a lot more to do with climate change than you would initially think. No background knowledge necessary, but massive spoilers for Season 8. Notes:Full version of The Doctor’s War Speech (because it’s a really good): https://youtu.be/BJP9o4BEziIJust Write’s GOT episode: https://youtu.be/habt4hbvJHgLindsey Ellis GOT episode: https://youtu.be/hys_m3BPTS8 (not PG) Wisecrack GOT episode: https://youtu.be/_6C23dVddv4 (not mentioned in the video, but a good analysis)
We sat down with Dr. Brian Forist and PhD candidate, Kostas Stavrianakis, from Indiana University's Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism Studies. Learn about their incredible research.
