First episode of Star Warsologies 1: Geology & Paleontology


Star Warsologies 1: Geology and Paleontology of Tatooine

Star Warsologies

Welcome to the debut 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. 

Up first, an interview with geologist and paleontologist Dr. Jim Lehane focusing on Tatooine. Did you know the Krayt dragon skeleton in A New Hope is a cast of a real dinosaur? Or that the landscapes shown in the podrace scene of The Phantom Menace prove that Tatooine once had water? Neither did we!

Jim also had us on his podcast Talkin Tauntauns, listen to episode 62 where we geek out about science and Star Wars together!

Or listen on YouTube with relevant screenshots and photos!
