In this week’s podclast, host Chris Town, Julia the Ethical Palaeontologist and myself demonstate just how wide-ranging the earth sciences can be by starting off with Tongan volcanoes, and finishing on the possibility of feathered sauropods. In between, we even managed to switch geological gears neatly from subduction zones to melting ice caps and climate change, via John Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes, a sci-fi classic involving weird blobby things from another planet setting up in the ocean deeps and indulging in a little bit of terraforming. As it turned out, they may just have needed to wait a century or three.
