I'll be honest, my heart is super heavy this week and I struggled with today's episode. Between my first plan falling through and just not feeling my backup idea, I was pretty lost until I remembered this little recording I did with my son Bradley from the end of March. It's silly, kind of pointless, and chaotic, and I hope it's a fun distraction from...well all the everything going on. Hang in there, friends. Be bold, smart, and kind in all your interactions and in your lives. **************************************************************************************************************This week's promo is for my upcoming show with my friend Erfan Vafaie, Jolly Green Scientists!

Memes. Olives. Guerrilla ecologists. What do all these things have in common? We talk about them all in this awesome episode with Rhett Barker and Curtis Sarkin from Wild Green Memes for Ecological Fiends. They were gracious enough to re-record with me after I had some technical problems and I'm so glad they did. We laugh a ton about memes and get serious about ecology. You're going to love it!

Y'all, I'm so excited for you to hear this one. Abby Morrison is the Publication Systems Assistant for ACSESS, a blogger, podcaster, writer, and such a cool person. We got to nerd out about science, storytelling, plants, science communication, Tolkien, and so many other things. I feel like I've found a friend and kindred spirit in Abby, and this episode made me so happy.
