This spring I am teaching limnology and decided I would have the class read
Dan Egan's "Life and Death of the Great Lakes," that he published in 2017.
I decided to find an interview with him that was on PBS, and I stumbled
across him being interviewed on the same topic by the Daily Show (comedy
central).  I don't know how he kept a strait face!  But, this was a really
good way to catch the attention of younger adults who typically watch the
show.  I must be getting old, I don't really watch it anymore! :)
Guess I'll use this as the opening video for the semester!

here is a link for those who are interested!
