00:00:00 - For our first segment we head back to Panama so Ryan can chat with fellow paleontologist Caitlin Colleary about her Masters’ work looking into the coloration of fossils. They share a ‘cervezarita’ made with the national beer of Colombia, Aguila.
01:08:04 – While it shouldn’t be a controversial topic, there are still a lot of issues facing women in science. Having established that Caitlin is both a woman and a scientist, she and Ryan chat about some of the challenges facing her gender. Ryan also reveals a second secret beer, a Bavaria Dark he brought back from Costa Rica!
01:47:46 – PaleoPOWs are a lot like gender politics, the ultimate goal is to treat everyone equally. Ryan is thankful for a new recurring donation from Denise C. Victor C. (no relation) sets up a recurring donation too as well as coming to the aid of the recently maligned Ben Tippett. Thanks Denise and Victor!
