Have you ever really paid much attention to what is depicted on clothing, toys, and such made for children? This episode Derek sits down with Kristine Duehl, a PhD of Biology who focuses on plants and the biomes in which plants and their common fauna live. When Kristine had her first child, she wanted to ensure that her own kid had learning materials which were accurate to the real world, so she created 'The Budding Biologist' book series.
