America is unique in harboring a sizable population of the scientifically disinclined—or more bluntly, climate change deniers and anti-vaxxers. Riding to the rescue on a motorcycle is our guest Dr. Julian Siggers. the Williams Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology since 2012, and the newly appointed president and CEO of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. We delve into how, after receiving a PhD in human prehistory, he became the host of a series on the Discovery Channel and made his way into museums. He discusses the life of an archaeologist, ethical concerns facing museums, the impact of data science, how schooling differs between the UK and the US, why trade in dinosaur bones isn’t regulated, and multiple other topics.
