Dr. Michael S. Atkins is a marine biologist and a biological oceanographer, and has been involved in ocean sciences for nearly 30 years. His career has taken him into marine, terrestrial, and even extraterrestrial (simulated anyway) ecosystems to look at a wide diversity of living organisms that make a living doing some very extraordinary things.
Dr. Atkins has been fortunate enough to work as an ocean scientist all over the world and even at the bottom of the ocean in deep submersible vehicles. He has worked and consulted on National Science Foundation Life in Extreme Environments and NASA Astrobiology Institute projects to detect life throughout the universe using the ocean bottom as a model.
From 2000 to the present Dr. Atkins has been involved with education and public outreach projects around the world regarding marine sciences. He was a microbiologist in a segment of the National Geographic documentary "Sustainable Seas", and served as a scientific consultant and deep-submersible diver in the film "Aliens of the Deep", by director James Cameron and Disney Pictures, among many other EPO projects both on land and the oceans.
Henry and Tom is Dr. Atkins' first fiction novel based on his experiences with and love for the world's oceans and its remarkable inhabitants.
Dr. Sylvia Earle, Legendary Ocean Researcher
Sometimes, when a guest has the kind of bio like Dr. Earle, cut and paste is the best solution to capturing the greatness of this human being and her accomplishments. So here goes: National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Sylvia A. Earle, called "Her Deepness" by the New Yorker and the New York Times, "Living Legend" by the Library of Congress, and first "Hero for the Planet" by Time magazine, is an oceanographer, explorer, author, and lecturer. She has experience as a field research scientist, government official, and director for corporate and nonprofit organizations, including the Kerr McGee Corporation, Dresser Industries, Oryx Energy, the Aspen Institute, the Conservation Fund, American Rivers, Mote Marine Laboratory, Duke University Marine Laboratory, Rutgers Institute for Marine Science, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, and Ocean Futures. Impressed? Well, there's more. Dr. Earle has authored more than 190 scientific, technical, and popular publications; lectured in more than 80 countries; and appeared in hundreds of radio and television productions. And now she honors us with yet another interview. This show made possible due to the generous support of the Chapman Automotive Group.

Discussion about the rising sea levels in South Florida with Co Host: Monica Rosales Executive Director of DocMiami Film Festival
Juliet Pinto, Ph.D. is an associate professor in the Department of Journalism and Broadcasting in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Florida International University. She has developed classes in environmental journalism and communication, and has taken students to the Galapagos to report on issues pertaining to resource use and management there, as well as scuba dived down 62 feet to watch NASA astronauts train at the underwater Aquarius Reef Base in the Florida Keys. Her award-winning documentary on sea level rise, "South Florida's Rising Seas" aired in January 2014 and was repurposed by PBS NewsHour for their national newscast.
Kate MacMillin the producer of the award-winning documentary "South Florida's Rising Seas," has a B.A. from Boston University and a Master’s Degree in English Literature from Simmons College in Boston. She and three other SJMC colleges won the prestigious 2012-15 Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education grant to conduct community-engaged journalism about the threats of sea level rise in South Florida.

Captain Charles (Charlie) Moore is author of Plastic Ocean: How a Sea Captain's Chance Discovery Launched a Determined Quest to Save the Oceans, Founder of the Algalita Marine Reseach Foundation and Captain of the Oceanographic Research Vessel Alguita.
On his return voyage, Captain Moore veered from the usual sea route and saw an ocean he had never known. "Every time I came on deck to survey the horizon, I saw a soap bottle, bottle cap or a shard of plastic waste bobbing by. Here I was in the middle of the ocean and there was nowhere I could go to avoid the plastic."
Captain Moore has dedicated his time and resources to understanding and remediating the ocean's plastic load. Along with collaborators from the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project he developed protocols for monitoring marine and beach micro-plastics which are used worldwide.
Captain Moore has conducted ocean and coastal sampling for plastic fragments through more than 40,000 miles of the North Pacific Ocean, across 22 degrees of latitude and 70 degrees of longitude. His latest 10,000 mile voyage took him and his crew two-thirds of the way to Japan across the International Dateline. Captain Moore's work has been highlighted in major media outlets, including ABC’s Nightline, Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and The Wall Street Journal.
His work has been published in multiple scientific journals and magazines. His book, Plastic Ocean, was published in October 2011.

What do you want to be when you grow up? Answering that single question has taken Diane on an amazing journey as an author. Diane says "Little did I know 10 years ago when I was writing the very first title, Career Ideas for Kids Who Like Science, that I would eventually fill over 50 books with ideas to help students of all ages find bright futures. And, believe it or not, there are still more books to come!" Two of her new series add some extra fun to the career exploration process. In the first, the Virtual Apprentice series, young readers find out what it’s really like to be…a pop musician, a firefighter, an oceanographer and nine other exciting professions. Hot off the press in August of 2009 is the Way Out Work series, a full-color, high interest take on Goofy Jobs, Scary Jobs, Gutsy Jobs, and more.
All of Diane's books are carefully designed to provide enough entertainment to keep kids interested and enough educational oomph for teachers to use them in their classrooms. The idea was to link learning with the real world in order to spark ideas, inspire dreams, and get kids thinking about all the things they could be.

Brandon Barr: No matter the genre, Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mainstream, surrealism, literary, I charge forward, pressing on towards the goal. And that goal is . . . to move. To touch. To bring to tears. To cause laughter. To bring chills. But above all, to write in such a way that I bring glory to the God whom I serve.
"Treasures of The Heart": Oceanographer Bree McKinney wasn’t looking for an adventure, but when Jack Castle, a charming ex-Navy SEAL unexpectedly enters her life, she gets that and more. He needs her help to find the HMS Sheba Queen’s rumored cargo of gold, a legendary British warship that mysteriously sank off the New England coast in 1779. Bree finds herself falling in love as they search for the lost treasure, but their search takes a life or death turn when a dangerous man from Jack’s past catches up with him, and will stop at nothing to claim the gold for himself.
John Englander is an oceanographer, spanning many disciplines and areas of expertise. He is a global ocean explorer with personal experiences on expeditions under the polar ice cap, deep dives in research submarines, and visits to Greenland and Antarctica. His mission is to be a clear, objective voice on our changing climate and oceans.
Mr. Englander’s broad marine science background, coupled with dual majors in Geology and Economics allows him to see the big picture on climate and look ahead to the large-scale financial and societal impacts, particularly as they relate to sea level rise.
High Tide On Main Street: Rising Sea Level and the Coming Coastal Crisis, his new book, was released October 22, 2012, a week before Hurricane Sandy hit the New York City area. John described just such an event hitting NYC as an example of what could occur, never imagining it would happen a week later.
The book has received unanimous strong praise for its ability to take the latest science and put it into a long-term view that anyone can understand. Using his own unique metaphors, from a 47-floor elevator to the world’s largest outdoor swimming pool, he makes the height and timeframe of sea level rise compelling and memorable.
