In 2018, we sat down with Jill Pelto to discuss her glacial science and art as well as how and why science and art need to intersect, especially when considering matters of climate change. Here we both dive into Jill's Master's research on the past sensitivity of the Antarctic ice sheet to warming as well as take a tour of some of her data art pieces.

Dr. Asmeret Asefaw Berhe discusses her research on soil and its importance to storing carbon and regulating climate, how we can manage land to promote carbon storage, along with how we need to act with intention in building anti-racist environments.

In 2018 Dr. Clare Eayrs shared her unconventional route to where she currently works in sea ice modeling at New York University Abu Dhabi with me via video chat. Here you can hear about her journey from growing up in Zimbabwe to going to university in the UK, pursuing jobs in the UAE and Italy, getting further education back in the UK, eventually finding herself back in the UAE. Clare's interests evolved over time from oceanography to the sea ice she studies today, and the route she took to get there is super interesting and refreshing.
In which Dr. Joellen Russell (currently a professor at the University of Arizona) discusses her journey through academia which began with answering a question she had as a child -- 'where does sea ice go when it leaves Kotzebue, Alaska?' and now is guided by much larger scale questions around anthropogenic climate change and working with other scientists to determine what we need to do to stop it. Joellen's journey thus far, which has included hurdles of adversity related to being a woman and a mother in academia, is inspirational and is definitely demanding of a listen.
Dr. Marilyn Raphael shares her journey in how she got where she is today as a professor of geography at UCLA, a bit about her Trinidadian childhood, the science she does currently and offers useful advice as to how to overcome obstacles as you meet them.
Kaare shares the story of how he came to be a liaison between Arctic researchers and Iñupiat people on the North Slope of Alaska. We discuss the varied effects of climate change on different locations across the Arctic, and the ways in which scientists can be conscientious of how they conduct science and build relationships in the Arctic.
Gabi walks us through what field research for climate reconstruction is like in caves of Mexico. She also discusses how we can all be more aware of and become advocates for people with disabilities pursuing their dreams in STEM and other fields.
