(June 11, 2017) On this episode, the hosts talk about President Trump’s Executive Order that reviews National Monuments, like Bears Ears National Monument. The hosts also give a brief history of the Antiquities Act to provide a background of the creation of National Monuments. With the review, who stands to gain and who stands to lose if certain monuments are deceased in size or eliminated altogether?

(May 14, 2017) On this episode the hosts are joined by Colleen Strawhacker to discuss her work in the Arctic and the American Southwest. They discuss the importance of understanding the Arctic’s role in climate change. The focus of much of this episode is on the importance of working with local groups and making information widely available to communities and scholars.
On this episode we discuss some of the difficulties in making friends with different crews during a field season and maintaining those relationships when you all go home. We also talk about the difficulties of maintaining relationships with close friends and significant others when you are traveling a large amount of the time, as well as our concerns for our pets while we are away.
