Dr. Mark Siddall, curator, the American Museum of Natural History

An entire day at the American Museum of Natural History in New York today with very good friend Dr. Mark Siddall. Mark is a curator, researcher, and Professor at the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the AMNH. As an evolutionary biologist, his illustrious career has been devoted to uncovering biodiversity and evolutionary histories. He returned yesterday from 3 weeks doing field work and specimen collection in South America. After spending the day behind the scenes at the Museum in the CT scanner, electron microscope, and genetic sequencing laboratories, and the collections storage facilities (the home of many type specimens collected over almost 150 years), we sat down in Mark's office to chat for a spell. Apologies for the audio quality and the abrupt ending, the recorder stopped about 2 minutes before we finished. The Natural History of Cuba exhibit we mentioned opens in late November, 2016. http://explorers.institute/podcast/MarkSiddallAMNH.mp3 Exhibitions Mark has curated at th...

Archaeologist Dr. Brendan Foley: Antikythera shipwreck - Human skeletons found

A discussion with good friend and collaborator, Dr. Brendan Foley, archaeologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. We talk about one of the most interesting archaeology excavations ever, the Antikythera shipwreck. Brendan and team announced just this week, that ancient skeletons, over 2000 years old, have been located at the site deep underwater in the Aegean Sea. This is a very rare find. We also discuss the use of reality capture technology to share the the artifacts and tell the story of the doomed Greek ship which sank over 2000 years ago. I speak with Brendan via Skype. He lives in Sweden and I am in Monterey Bay, California participating in the Marine Technology Society / IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society Oceans '16 conference. http://explorers.institute/podcast/BrendanFoleyAntikythera.mp3 More from Woods Hole about the Brendan's work on the Antikythera shipwreck here: http://antikythera.whoi.edu More about the the Antikythera Shipwreck Exhibition at the National Archaeo...

Dr. Michael Waltemathe, co-editor of "Touching the Face of the Cosmos:On the Intersection of Space Travel and Religion”

A chat with Dr. Michael Waltemathe, co-editor of the book "Touching the Face of the Cosmos: On the Intersection of Space Travel and Religion.” Michael is a Senior Lecturer in Religious Education, in the Department of Protestant Theology at Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany. He is the author of Computer Worlds and Religion, articles about science, religion, and outer space. Our discussion was recorded at the SETI Institute. From Amazon: "Military advantage, scientific knowledge, and commerce have thus far been the main motives for human exploration of outer space. Touching the Face of the Cosmos explores what may be the best motive of all, largely untapped: the desire of every human being, essentially spiritual, to understand more about our place in the universe, how our lives on Earth are inextricably part of that bigger picture. Drawing on leading scientists, religious thinkers, and science fiction writers--including a new interview with John Glenn, and an essay by Director of th...
