00:00:00 - This week Abe and Ryan joined by Dr. Dave McGarvie to get an update on what's going on with those pesky Icelandic volcanoes that seem to keep threatening air travel. What's the deal there, Dave?
00:24:10 - One way to stay cool around hot lava is a drink. Sure, maybe not a flammable one, but that's what the segment is about regardless. Dave is enjoying some Laphroaigh Scotch Whisky but can't help but mention his favorite themed coffee Hot Java Lava. Abe, to ingratiate himself to our guest, enjoys a Full Bore Scotch Ale from Devil's Canyon Brewing Co. And since this was recorded some time ago, Ryan toasts the holidays with a Hanukkah, Chanukah limited edition release from Shmaltz Brewing Company.
The discussion flows as seamlessly as magma back into more volcano talk, but also science news reporting and outreach. Be sure to check out Dave's blog and Twitter feed for the unfiltered on what's really happening on everyone's favorite north Atlantic hotspot!
01:20:41 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like eruptions, unpredictable but inevitable. Abe informs us all of a new recurring donation started by Chunk, who uses his powers to try and embarrass Ryan. Thanks, Chunk... sort of. Ryan is stoked to have a new iTunes review from ndesouza22, reigniting the dreaded pronoun game!
Thanks for listening and be sure to check out the Brachiolope Media Network for more great science podcasts!
