Arthro-Pod Episode 6: The ESA Files!

Hello everyone and welcome to our 6th episode! This episode was recorded at the Entomological Society of America's national meeting and features 10 interviews with entomologists from around the country. Tune in if you want to know more about the exciting advances in bug research and education! 

I flew out to Portland, OR with my finest lady bug tie on and my recording equipment in the hopes of talking to lots of bug folks at the meeting. After securing an unguarded table I began my guerrilla podcasting campaign.  

Maybe next year I will go in a more official capacity...

There are 10 entomologists featured today. Below you can find a photo of them and a phot of something they mention during their interview. In addition, I list the start time of their interview in the recording and any links, Twitter handles, or projects they mention. I hope you enjoy today's episode!
