    As a PhD student in marine micropalaeontology, I’m thoroughly looking forward to listening to this. It’s going to be nice to hear some of my lovely colleagues (who just got back from this cruise last month) having fun on the boat.

    As a pedant, I’d like to point out that it’s called the ‘JOIDES Resolution’. Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling, since you asked.
