Graycen and Alison discuss stories they read this week, including stories about dark personalities, jellyfish, and long, boring talks. Then they sit down with CU Boulder ecologist Pacifica Sommers to talk about her work in extreme environments, including her recent work in Antartica.

Alison got her jellyfish recipes from Carl Zimmer at The New York Times.
