Episode Notes

Kristin Burkholder is a microbiologist at the University of New England (UNE). Carrie Byron researches Marine Ecology, also at UNE. While they would describe themselves as different types of scientists - a lab scientist vs an applied scientist - they have teamed together for the last few years to look at a wide variety of science questions they have about seaweed, which is a high-growth industry in Maine.
