Episode Description

Welcome back to The Method Section! Tom returns with his deep dive series into scientific discussions! This week he is talking about decompression sickness, a well-studied and understood phenomenon in human scuba divers but something thought impossible for the diving animals of our world. Recent studies however are turning that view on its head and here you can find out how that’s happening and why that’s important! Stay tuned to the Method Section!
