It’s the second episode of Star Warsologies!
In the NEW podcast Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. The newest addition to the Skywalking Network brings you a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars.
For our second episode, we are off to Dagobah with restorative ecologist Traci Degerman, who has worked for the US Forest Service and National Park Service at Mount Ranier National Park! We discuss the circle of life on a wetlands world and speculate how Luke avoided pathogens when he jumped into the swamp. What’s the real reason Yoda chose to live on Dagobah? What makes a wetlands environment work? Are they trees or really giant spiders? We answer these questions and more with our expert guest ecologist!
