My May Day episode is up! Given that World Fish Migration Day is May 21, it seems only appropriate that this month I post interviews related to fish. Take a listen to hear about what Constantin Scherelis has to say about using hydroacoustics to find fish in the Penobscot River. The Penobscot is a particularly interesting river because it is tidal! Listen to the interview for more information.
Also, I played Lt. Bill Harwood’s Story Collider story from our Maine Science Festival show back in March, which is such a thrilling story of how chemistry lead the Lieutenant to being a policeman.
Keep an eye out for my report on the American Fisheries Society University of Maine Chapter Spawning 5K run that I attended April 30th! I finished the race which was my greatest achievement of April, 2016. I’m very excited because I got to use my new Marantz recorder and my AudioTech microphone to do my interviews. My dog Millie was not as impressed as I was by the equipment.
I also survived my TEDx talk which I’ll post on the blog as soon as it comes out (I promise, mom.)
Music breaks: The Gammy Bird by Christopher Young, Lucy by Lindsay Mac, Speed of Sound by Coldplay, Bill Harwood: How a Chemist Becomes a Cop by The Story Collider, Chemistry by Semisonic.
