Don't Panic Geocast

Don't Panic Geocast is a weekly podcast that explores the links between geoscience and technology and frequently includes other fields along the way. Launched in January 2015, this podcast is produced and hosted by Shannon Dulin, an assistant professor and field geologist, and John Leeman, a PhD student with a background in geophysics and software engineering. Both Dulin and Leeman also have backgrounds in meteorology, and they bring this breadth of earth science knowledge into their podcast. Each episode is typically 45 minutes to an hour long and focuses on a particular topic. The hosts' conversational banter (which sometimes includes a guest expert) covers the science of that topic, as well as the technology used to study it. Examples of recent topics include: wildfire weather, how plate tectonics can affect the climate, and a geological perspective on how rivers work. Another notable feature of this podcast is "Fun Paper Friday," in which the hosts chat about "a fun, funny, or fascinating paper," from a diverse range of scientific disciplines. Interested readers can access all episodes and show notes of Don't Panic Geocast at the link above, and it is also available via RSS or various podcast apps.
