We speak with Sheldon from the C-Word podcast and mine his brain for valuable nuggets of geological data. He has a degree in geology and has experience in using his degree in the field for oil, gas and mining industries.
We talk about uniformitarianism, catastrophism, the Younger Dryas, plate tectonics, the Mohorovicic Discontinuity,
vulcanism, rock formation and dating technologies, and pirates at strip clubs.
Thanks very much to The C Word
