Pledge Drive: From Pole to Pole – February 21

Thursday, 21 February 2013 | Science

This week we spoke to three different guests about the arctic, equator, and antarctic, and asked for your pledge for listener-supported, community-powered radio.

Kaitlin talked with Andrew Stuhl, a PHD candidate in the University of Wisconsin-Madison History of Science department and a Nelson Institute CHANGE Fellow. He studies a mix of history of science, environmental history and environmental studies. His dissertation is entitled “Empires on Ice: Science, Nature, and the Making of the Modern Arctic.”

Matthew spoke to Stefan Hastenrath, emeritus professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UW-Madison, to learn about some of the characteristics of equatorial glaciers.

Steven interviewed Nathan Whitehorn of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory about living and working in Antarctica and the South Pole.
