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.

Happy whatever month it is, everyone! Really, time is mostly meaningless these days. What's not meaningless, however, is this wonderful episode with Beth Nichols of Fronds With Benefits. Beth is an absolute delight of a human being and a brilliant plant scientist. She's just finishing up her PhD in computational plant science, has spent time as a biology teacher, is a talented artist, and really just so much fun to talk to. ALSO, she designed the fabulous new Planthropology logo! Check out this great episode where we talk about grad school, art, making science approachable, traveling the English countryside, and so much more!Beth NicholsTwitterInstagramFacebookYouTubeWebsiteCheck 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!

Because of that, The Plant Prof was born! Tune in every day in November, then weekly after that, 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. Listen in today for a taste of the show, with 3 of the first episodes of The Plant Prof!

It's our second episode with Joe Vaughn! We talked about his day today responsibilities as a procurement forester, how climate change is affecting the forestry and timber industries, and about what it's like to be black in the green industry. We cover some heavy topics, but Joe is such a positive person and approaches inclusion, diversity, and representation in such a meaningful way, that I hope this leaves you inspired to be more inclusive and accepting in your own life. I know it was inspirational for me!

Prairies and grasslands are great, and so are people who study them. I chatted with the recently doctored Dr. Kat Radicke. We met in grad school and were pretty fast friends. She's charming, funny, and super smart and I think you're really going to enjoy hearing from her. We talk about everything from the stress and challenges of graduate school, to collecting cow burps and it was a lot of fun! This episode also contains trailers for the Plants and Pipettes and Bald Scientist podcasts at the end.

It's time for our first Deep Dive episode! You may have noticed during this whole Covid crisis that some types of foods were pretty scarce on the shelves at your local grocery store. A lot of this is due to holes in the food supply chain.

Today is different, my friends. My grandfather passed away the evening of Tuesday, July 28. If you've been listening for a while, you've heard me speak about him and how he was the one who started my love of plants in nature. Today's episode is the best I can do to pay tribute to him. He was good and kind and selfless. That's the best compliment I know how to give anyone. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/planthropology)

EPISODE 20! We made it! I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon, but big milestones are fun! Thanks for listening and for all the support. Y'all, today's episode is great. Dr. Becky Bowling is an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist in Urban Water with the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences at Texas A&M. She's also hilarious, brilliant, a wonderful educator, and one of my very closest friends. I've wanted to interview Dr. Becky for the show since it started, and was so excited to finally have the opportunity. You're going to love all the awesome stuff she's doing in conservation and education. Grab a bag of popcorn and a frosty beverage and jump into episode 20!Dr. Becky BowlingTwitter: https://twitter.com/TXWaterWomanWater U Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AgriLifeWaterU/Jolly Green Scientists:Apple: https://apple.co/2ML2AsAPodchaser: https://bit.ly/2XMCmMLCastBox: https://bit.ly/3hevm2CGoogle: https://bit.ly/3dQHJjiFacebook: https://bit.ly/2UtNLPgCaptivate: https://bit.ly/3dRyq2OCheck out our Sponsor, Pecan Ridge and use the promo code "plantpeople" at check out for %10 off your order!Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thepecanridge/Website: https://pecanridge.com/ As always, thanks so much for listening!

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!

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

Vikram is an absolute delight of a human being to listen to. Whether you like plants, have ever seen a plant, or are a plant, you’ll find this show fascinating!

Petri Dish: The 'Wash Yo Hands' Podcast

Are you a plant-lover that wants to learn more about the plants in your life? Are you a plant-killer that wants to reform and learn how to not mass murder the plants you were supposed to be caring for? 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!
