207 | Chillin’ with Arachnids

March 26, 2019
How do arachnids handle freezing temperatures? Susan Anthony, a PhD candidate in the biology department and past chair of GradCast, tells Gavin Tolometti and Ariel Frame the answer to this elusive question. Susan discusses the difficulty researchers have studying in the field during winter and about some of her favourite animals, including red velvet spider mites, pseudoscorpions, tarantulas and sharks. If you'd like to read more about Susan and her research you can contact her on twitter @suzanthony, by email at santho2@uwo.ca.
