Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they explore the fossil record! What are fossils int he first place and how are they made? Why do we sometimes get full skeletons, small insects trapped in amber, or only the tracks that they left behind! Tom explores how fossil fuels are made depending on if they originate from plants, plankton, and animals and Mitch tells us about Burgess shale, one of the most important fossil sites ever discovered. The boys explore why fossils are important to us today and some giant penguins! Of course, no discussion on fossils would be complete without some Jurassic Park discussion either.
