Today on the show, we are talking with astronomer and biodiversity writer Dr. Daniel Hudon. Daniel got his Master’s in Astronomy at the University of British Columbia, followed by his PhD in Astronomy from the University of Toronto. He currently lectures in Astronomy and Mathematics at Boston University and Northeastern University, while also making time to write books like The Bluffer’s Guide to the Cosmos and most recently Brief Eulogies for Lost Animals. We talked about how an astronomer turned his focus to life on earth and the biodiversity crisis, what astronomers actually do, and which extinct animal he mourns the most. We hope you like it!
