"Picture the flag on a pirate ship. What do you see?" This question opens the second episode of Bone Lab Radio, the new podcast co-founded by ComSciCon15 alumna Jenny Qi, a Graduate Student in Biomedical Sciences at UC San Francisco. Like every episode of the Bone Lab, this hook thrusts the reader into a fascinating story of the life and death of organisms, the remains they leave behind, and how scientists use these remains to study the past.
The Bone Lab was founded by a group of scientists and friends in San Francisco. We are academic researchers, science communicators, and bone enthusiasts who believe that bones have qualities that capture the imagination. Whether fossilized, x-rayed, cataloged in a museum, or moving us through our daily lives, bones have stories to tell.
