This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about artificial intelligence, great white sharks, illegal pollution, snail genes, and new rules for leaders at the National Institutes of Health. That's right, it's the May Science News Roundup.
This month, we're joined by Sheena McFarland, the director of marketing and communication for the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. What is a business school executive doing on a science news show? Well, Sheena is also one of the most ardent science enthusiats we know, with a degree in biology teaching and an insatiable interest in astronomy.
With us for the second time on the roundup, and the third time as a guest on the program, is Joseph Wilson, an evolutionary ecologist from Utah State University. He's the author of "The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North American Bees." He first joined us on the show to talk about his research in December 2018.
