December 17, 2020 Episode 18: Megan Gannon: Science Journalist, New Old Bones and Sacred Histories

Megan Gannon is a science journalist focusing on archeological digs and discoveries. She was born and raised in NY but now lives full time in Berlin. 

We talk a bit today about her recent article in Popular Science Magazine (recently featured by Apple News as a Weekend Must Read) and what it means when a plastics giant threatens both the lives and history of one Black community in Louisiana.

There will be unintentional puns and really bad archeology jokes - and I don't apologize at all. 

 

Please make sure to read--because it is so good:
