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.

It's time for Operation Switcheroo, 2021! Participating podcasts swap episodes for a day so that YOU can be exposed to some great new content! This year, I swapped with the Better Than Human podcast and you get to hear an EXCELLENT episode about everyone's favorite swimming survivor, the tardigrade! The show notes from their original episode are copied below in case you'd like any additional information!*****************************************************************************************From Better Than Human:This week’s topic is the world’s ultimate survivor, Tardigrades, also called water bears or moss piglets (isn’t moss piglet the cutest name ever). Tardigrades are a phylum of over 1,000 water-dwelling, micro-animals that have been found everywhere on Earth, including Antarctica and the deepest parts of the world’s oceans. They can survive extreme heat and cold, extreme pressure or lack of pressure (think outer space), almost complete dehydration, and radiation levels that would kill most animals. Tardigrades have survived all of Earth’s five mass extinctions. Each time they survived an extinction, the Tardigrades have become stronger and more likely to survive another mass extinction, and will definitely outlast humanity. So put on your headphone, or not, and learn about the Moss Piglets that almost never die from anything other than age.For more information on us, visit our website at betterthanhumanpodcast.comFollow us on Twitter @betterthanhuma1on Facebook @betterthanhumanpodcaston Instagram @betterthanhumanpodcaston TikTok  @ https://www.tiktok.com/@l_a_mander (if it still exists in the US)or Email us at betterthanhumanpodcast@gmail.comWe look forward to hearing from you, and we look forward to you joining our cult of weirdness!#betterthanhuman #cultofweirdnessSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/planthropology)
Old growth forests. The phrase probably stirs up a lot of images an emotions in your mind, but do you really know what makes a tree an old growth tree or a forest an old growth forest? One of our fan favorites, Joe Vaughn, was kind enough to come back on the show for a 3rd time to do a deep dive into the ins and outs of old growth and what it means for ecological systems and the timber industry. It's a really fun and informative episode and I think you're really going to love it!Joe VaughnTwitter: https://twitter.com/joetalkstimberLocal LBKFacebook: @LocalLBKInstagram: @LocalLBKTwitter: @Local_LBKTikTok: @LocalLBKWebsite: www.locallbk.comFollow the link below to sign up to be a member of Local LBK for just $5/month and get access to dozens of great deals and discounts from businesses around Lubbock, TX!Sign-up for Local LBK Rewards!As always, thanks so much for listening!

What's up, plant people? Today's episode is one that's close to my heart for so many reasons. My friend and guest, Stephen Janak, is a fellow Texas A&M grad, works for AgriLife Extension, and an olive researcher! He's smart, articulate, funny, and an excellent storyteller.

What's up plant people? I'm not sure I've ever talked to another guest who's done so many different and incredible things before they turned 30. Tyler Froberg is the head farmer at Hope Farms in Houston, TX. He runs the farm, but also works with programs for kids, veterans, and everyone in between. He's really done a little bit of everything and is such an inspiring guy. I'm so glad I finally got to connect with him after nearly a year. You can find him pretty much everywhere on social media.

What's up, Plant People?? Listen, there are a lot of good things for you and one of those things is for you to not die lost in the woods. To help make sure that wish comes true, my friend Paul Csomo from the Varmints Podcast came on the show for today's episode to tell you some things he's learned from his hobby of studying wilderness survival. We also talk a lot about starting a podcast, listening to podcasts, and about gas station sushi. Paul is a wonderful human, and I think you're really going to enjoy this. Don't eat the sushi, don't eat the mushroom, and don't die in the woods.

Hey there, Plant People! This is a very special bonus episode because it includes a whole bunch of my good podcast friends! I'm in a little (ok, not THAT little) group of podcasters who talk about science and academia on their shows, and we all thought it would be fun to do a live-streamed wrap up of 2020. This is the audio recording of that live stream which took place a couple of days ago. It's fun and encouraging we spend VERY little time talking about COVID and a lot of time talking about the good things we've learned and experienced in our podcast journeys. Be sure to follow all the shows listed below on Twitter and check out their podcasts!

This isn't the episode that was supposed to come out today, but it was the one I felt like I needed to do. I graduate on Friday, and recorded this (longer than intended) piece about my experience through my PhD and where I go from here. I hope you get something out of it! It was certainly therapeutic for me to record.This episode also contains a promo for follow PodFix Network show, The Fish Nerds! Find out more and listen at FishNerdsPodcast.com!Oh, also, I started a new podcast! I wanted to be a part of #NaPodPoMo for November, where podcasters are posting content every day, but it didn't fit well with Planthropology. Because of that, The Plant Prof was born! Tune in weekly for plant facts, garden tips and tricks, answers to your questions, and whatever else pops into my head! Episodes will be bite sized and never more than 10-15 minutes long. You can find the show anywhere podcasts live and at the Linktree below!https://linktr.ee/theplantprofCheck out our Podcast Partners (Podners?):Pecan RidgeFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thepecanridge/Website: https://pecanridge.com/Use the promo code "plantpeople" at check out for %10 off your order!Local LBKFacebook: @LocalLBKInstagram: @LocalLBKTwitter: @Local_LBKTikTok: @LocalLBKWebsite: www.locallbk.comFollow the link below to sign up to be a member of Local LBK for just $5/month and get access to dozens of great deals and discounts from businesses around Lubbock, TX!Sign-up for Local LBK Rewards!As always, thanks so much for listening!

this episode was pretty much two guys talking about topics that they should talk about but never really delving into anything. there wasn't really a lot of substance just a lot of talking about topics. They did mention mesquite trees and then the subject changed pretty quickly something else and it kind of just went like that very casual and not really as educational or informative as I was hoping. but they did mention this was the first podcast and they would delve deeper later on. but I think I'm done you need to make a good first impression.

Planthropology is one of the greatest podcasts out there right now, and just reached its 1 year anniversary. Dr. Baliga is a hell of a host, intelligent as hell but doesn't make you feel like the dumbest person in the room when you talk to him/listen to the show. It's a great podcast, with a thoroughly entertaining show that I have recommended numerous times, and will continue to do. Cheers mate 🥂, keep it up

Are you just a person that likes to learn science stuff from people who know what they’re talking about? If you’re any of this stuff, or any kind of stuff, check out this podcast. It’s got all the finest juices the plant science world has to offer, squeezed straight from the mindgrapes of Vikram Baliga and his guests!
