I guess this is the first review of ASU Connections (I don't know what this older morning show is), but I really enjoy hearing about the many faces of SESE. I'm in the Fulton school of Engineering right now and heavily considering adding an astrophysics double major, and these interviews have helped me find potential fields of research to pursue, and the professors to contact. Thanks Kevin!
Intelligent, informative and intriguing! Conklin puts together a podcast that gives everyone notice that ASU is setting the pace in the academic world with it's interdisciplinary approach to space exploration.
I've been waiting for this podcast to emerge and finally it has come!!! I love listen to Shmonty and Conklin every morning and I'm so excited that Ivan now do it on the weekends too!!! Keep up the good works guys!!!
