Grace, Jon, and Jeff are talking the phosphorous cycle in part one of a multipart radio play about the often forgotten element cycle. The gang also revisit five questions, debate Chacos, and delve into a fascinating hypothetical scenario regarding publishing. What if you could only write a specific number of papers? How would that change the science you do? (This episode was recorded in October, 2019. Sorry for the delay!)
