Threshold Shift Special Feature--A Conversation with Two Scientists from Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology and Bioacoustics Research Program

Nikki Martin, host of Threshold Shift, delves deep into a wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Laurel Symes and Dr. Michelle Fournet about their work as well as their experiences of being women leaders in higher academia and in the life sciences fields. This segment will not feature nature sounds, (I know, I know, you have to wait until March 30 for the new segments). However you can hear recordings from Laurel's and Michelle's work in the archived September long-form from Panama about the hunter-prey cycle between bats and katydids guest hosted by Bill McQuay of Ecolocation Sound and the December long-form featuring global whale recordings from 1964 to 2015. There will be the last installment of the Insectuality piece airing March 30th from 12 am- 3 am also guest hosted by Bill McQuay. It will contain the elusive and much sought after long plays of the ultrasonics and tremulation first explored way back at the beginning of Threshold Shift on Thresholds of Hearing:  The World Beyond Our Senses.
