Episode 9 - Moss
Moss!! Amazing plants that are even more amazing the closer you look at them! We talk about what defines a moss, moss reproduction, and the importance of disturbance. Plus there's a musical treasure if you make it to the end. The audio is weird in this one about halfway through, but at least we made it halfway through an episode with decent audio.

Episode 1 - What is Science?
We set the stage for the rest of our episodes by discussing what science is. We talk about definitions, science identity, and Indigenous science in a winding conversation. Our audio was a little wonky, and our second episode will be as well since we recorded it at the same time as this one. We plan to work on making it better in episode 3 though!
