We break down our song "The Ballad of Barnum Brown," about the greatest fossil hunter of all time. Then we talk with paleontologist Gabe Santos about his work at the Raymond Alf Museum of Paleontology as collections manager and outreach coordinator, as well as the history of fossil hunting and his work with the Cosplay for Science initiative, a group of scientists who dress up as scientists and classic sci-fi characters and communicate real science at Comic-Cons and Nerd-Culture events. This is the ultimate episode for fossil lovers and anyone who wants to learn more about the remains of extinct creatures. Onward!!!
