Archelon with Emily Graslie
Feb 03, 2021 Episode 32
Olivia deBourcier & Sofia Osborne

This week we are so excited to have the amazing Emily Graslie with us to talk all about the archelon, the largest sea turtle to have ever lived! We also got to chat with Emily about science communication, online community, dung beetles, and — of course — Animal Crossing!

Emily started the YouTube channel The Brain Scoop in 2013 where she unpacks the behind the scenes of natural history museums. She was also the Chief Curiosity Correspondent for the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History. This summer, Emily had a three-part documentary series air on PBS called Prehistoric Road Trip, where she journeyed back in time by exploring fossils from the Northern Great Plains region. Make sure to check it out here! And, for more from Emily, follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

As mentioned in the episode: Bad Luck, Hot Rocks edited by Ryan Thompson & Phil Orr and Fossil Legends of the First Americans by Adrienne Mayor.
