UnDisciplined: Science News Roundup - September 2019

Oct 4, 2019

This week on the show, we're talking about the science behind Hurricane Dorian, a "rat-pocalypse," a new human ancestor, and poison dart frogs. Everybody on the show is an expert on something, but none of them is an expert on those things. 

We're joined this week by Safeez Safarian, an associate professor of physics and atronomy and adjunct assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Utah; Rodrigo Noriega, an assistant professor of physical and material chemistry at the University of Utah; Susan Matt, a social and cultural historian at Weber State University who last joined us to talk about a recent book, "Bored, Lonely, Angry, Stupid: Changing Feelings About Technology, from the Telegraph to Twitter;" and last but not least: Danielle Lemmon, a doctoral candidate in Boulder, Colo. working on the diversity of El Nino events.
