Biodiversity data v2Glasgow University's Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine, where I'm based, hosts Naturally Speaking featuring "cutting edge research and ecology banter". Apparently, what I do falls into that category, so Episode 65 features my work, specifically my entry for the 2018 GBIF Challenge (Ozymandias). The episode page has a wonderful illustration by Eleni Christoforou which captures the idea of linking things together very nicely. Making the podcast was great fun, thanks to the hosts Kirsty McWhinnie and Taya Forde. Let's face it, what academic doesn't love to talk about their own work, given half a chance? I confess I'm happy to talk about my work, but I haven't had the courage yet to listen to the podcast.
