Third Pod from the Sun, the American Geophysical Union’s podcast, kicks off the month of March with PSC’s Kristin Laidre.

Listen as Kristin provides a behind-the-science account of studying Arctic mammals – from seeing her first narwhal to the extensive time spent traveling to, and working with, Arctic communities not only to study narwhals but also polar bears – to understand how the effects of climate change, such as loss of sea ice, impact their ecosystem.
