Shameless self promotion

As a scientist, I find it somewhat ironic that in some sense I am no stranger to self promotion – paying my way (from grant money) to go to conferences and tell people how wonderful and important my research is – while at the same time I feel slightly embarrassed when I hear or see myself on a news piece. Well, I’m working on that and below are two recent pieces in which I’m featured, in some sense of that word.

The first audio link is from a local NPR radio program, The Marc Steiner Show that does a piece called On Delmarva each week.  My part comes in at about 23:00 and lasts for about 25 minutes, but I encourage you to listen to the whole hour because it’s all about the health of the Chesapeake Bay, with some commentary from me about the Gulf of Mexico, and Marc Steiner is a very good interviewer (he says, after two interviews in his life).

The second piece is from National Geographic, as part of a series they are doing on science from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. It’s about 3 minutes long and is very well produced.
