It seems that the previous episode with Amanda Johnson was a turning point for the Scattered podcast. That episode has an average of 200 downloads per day, so I want to thank everyone who listens for listening. It means the world to me that you are listening and interested in this topic!
For this new episode, I return to the study trials we conducted this year. In episode 7, we set out 8 pigs carcasses around Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta. In this episode, we return to search for the (hopefully) scattered remains of those carcasses.
This episode focuses on the volunteer searchers and how they work a search, a bit of the research design, and lessons we’ve (and I’ve) learned these past few months.
For more details on the searches, including pictures of what we found, read the series of posts (“The Smell of Dead Pig in the Morning“) earlier on this blog.
More to come in the new year.
May you all have a wonderful Christmas!
