Although we’re not strictly Canadian, you do get to hear from one a Canadians pretty frequently (yes, that’s me, Liz), and we have actually had a surprising number of Canadian episodes over the years. Of course Canada is well known for it’s palaeontology, and for this reason (or the fact that Liz is biased), we do a lot of Canadian content. We’ve interviewed a number of Canadian palaeontologists, or researchers from Canadian institutions, or about Canadian fossils or localities, which we’ve posted some images from below. We’re interested in your favourite Canadian episodes. Tell us what you liked! And please vote for us!
