Hello hello! Welcome back to Polar Times! This is part two of Jack’s interview with Huw Griffiths, marine biologist and biogeographer of the British Antarctic Survey. Have talked all about his research in the previous episode (go back an listen if you’re interested in benthic sea critters, icy boreholes and paradigm shifts in science), in this episode Huw tells us all about his field experiences in the Arctic and Antarctic and his work communicating polar science to the wider public. This episode is full of amazing stories and chock full of tips and tricks for young academics getting into science communication!
