Conversation with my Safecast co-founders, Sean Bonner and Pieter Frank about Whiplash and citizen science. Safecast is an international, volunteer-centered organization devoted to open citizen science for the environment. After the devastating earthquake and tsunami which struck eastern Japan on March 11, 2011, and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, accurate and trustworthy radiation information was publicly unavailable. Safecast was formed in response, and quickly began monitoring, collecting, and openly sharing information on environmental radiation and other pollutants, growing quickly in size, scope, and geographical reach. Our mission is to provide citizens worldwide with the tools they need to inform themselves by gathering and sharing accurate environmental data in an open and participatory fashion.

Conversation with Christopher Filardi, an evolutionary biologist and conservation activist working with indigenous people. I met Christopher in Marrakech last week and had an amazing conversation with him.

We had a quick chat while I was in an airport lounge in Dubai so the audio is a bit choppy. I'll try to do a longer higher quality conversation with him soon.
