I chased this conversation for nearly six months.
Kelly Falkner, director of polar programs at the National Science Foundation, was on my very first, very short list for Choose to be Curious. But when you chase someone who — literally — spends a good deal of time at the poles of the earth and many points in between, well, things can take a while.
But it was worth the wait, not least because it gave her a whole body of work to absorb — and that made an impression. Way cool.
Bonus: NSF’s Science360 Radio picked up the show as well!
