We join forces with The Sargassum Podcast team for this special Earth Day release (public launch). In this episode we discuss the implications of Sargassum blooms in the Caribbean and the impact they have on local communities and economies. Don't worry, there is some hope thrown in there as well! Our guests, Franziska Elmer, Mar Fernández-Méndez, and Robby Thigpen join our host Jelani Blake to discuss everything from risks to opportunities, to gaps in our scientific communication. Don't forget to support us on Patreon or you can make a one-off donation here. Every bit counts to help us reach even more followers!
