What the Fish? Episode 21: Armchair Science
Adventures in Science!
In this episode we welcome special guest Dr. Kevin Tang (Assistant Professor University of Michigan Flint) to discuss a new hypothesis that addresses a longstanding fishy paleontological mystery, the spiral-tooth whorls of the extinct cartilaginous fish species Helicoprion. From there we weave a tangled web of fieldwork parasite paranoia and encounters with large logs.
So long, and thanks for all the fish!
