“Prehistoric Road Trip” is a new PBS show.  The first episode features Dr. Jennifer DeBruyn’s former postdoc, Dr. Sarah Keenan, now an assistant professor at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City SD. Sarah talks about her taphonomy research – the branch of paleontology that deals with the processes of fossilization – with the host of Prehistoric Road Trip. They are sampling soil under a decomposing skunk. You can see the part with Sarah at 23:30 min. https://www.pbs.org/video/welcome-to-fossil-country-mpoq6h/
