Cold: Adventures in the World’s Frozen Places


Today on Focus, biologist Bill Streever will take us through history, mythology, geography, and ecology as he chases the iciest weather around the world's coldest locations. In his recent book Cold: Adventures in the World's Frozen Places, he recounts stories of Arctic swimming holes, ice age excavations, and hibernation research in perhaps this year's chilliest science book.

Guest: Bill Streever, Ph.D. (biologist; Chair of the North Slope Science Initiative's Science Technical Advisory Panel in Alaska; author of Cold: Adventures in the World's Frozen Places)
