This podcast series by two pun-loving scientists will take listeners behind the scenes of some of the world’s most advanced research into the natural and cultural history of Australia and its nearest neighbours.
Supplementary Information is co-hosted by Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) researchers Dr Nathan Jankowski (Twitter:@inthedarklab), a geologist at UOW, and archaeological scientist Dr Kelsie Long (Twitter:@phishytales) from the Australian National University.
The seven-episode series includes interviews with seven CABAH researchers, a centre based at UOW that brings together more than 130 researchers from universities and partner organisations across Australia and overseas and has more than 80 research projects underway.
In Supplementary Information (Twitter:@SuppInfoPod), the centre’s first podcast series, Dr Jankowski and Dr Long cover everything from Indigenous fire management in Tasmania and ecosystem management with wild animals in the Bass Strait Islands to island hopping possums and the evolution of the dingo.
“Our goal is to share knowledge and experiences of some of CABAH’s researchers who are helping reveal Australia’s epic story. We want our listeners to finish each episode having learned at least one new thing about Australia’s natural and cultural history,” Dr Jankowski said.
“Each episode teases out the stories and experiences of the researchers that are rarely captured in academic papers.”
