  • Episode 8 – Zombie Fungus

    In this episode, we interview Biologist Laura Okagaki-Vraspir, who had the distinction of being our first post CONvergence guest!  We talk to her about what got her interested in her specialty and the challenges of being a woman in her field.  She also educates us on fungi that create zombie ants and reassures us that the fungi in question will not trigger a zombie apocalypse.  Then we have her answer our five questions.  It was a very interesting conversation!  All sciency and stuff!
