Islands, Snails, & other Tales with Dr Andrew Kraemer

Our guest for the day has one of the coolest jobs on earth, studying in what is perhaps the coolest place on earth. He is full of stories, and knowledge, and passion for little creatures that so many would overlook. He will have you wood by the end of the episode as a lifelong ardent snail enthusiast, nay, lover.

Richard and I spoke to him back in late May, and it was so much more than we bargained for. Now, you might be wondering, what are we talking about today? Well, mostly islands!

Today’s guest is an adjunct assistant professor at Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska, received his B.A. at the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, MN and his PhD at Iowa State University.

We talk islands, upside down tortoises, rafting, Judas goats, a morphological menagerie of snails, cities, clever birds, the Galapagos, and so much more. So, grab some dessert and get isolated for our interview with Dr Andrew Kraemer!
