As one of Chicago's great scientific institutions, the Field Museum offers up everything from public lectures on paleontology to visiting exhibits on the legacy of the Columbian Exposition. As astute visitors already know, you don't have to be walking across the Museum Campus to experience its fabulous wealth of knowledge. For example, its Science Podcasts site is a veritable cornucopia of learned and fun commentary on the museum's in-house research, exhibits, and much more. There are three podcast and video series here, including The Field Revealed, Science at FMNH, and What the Fish? Visitors may want to start with "The Brain Scoop," which features "chief curiosity correspondent," Emily Graslie, in a weekly video series about the great work that's going on at the Field. As mentioned above, What the Fish? is another great component of the site. Through this biweekly podcast series, the museum's self-proclaimed "former fish nerds" dive into various topics surrounding the biodiversity of fishes, including discussions on general biology, ecology, and evolution.
