    Very interesting episode, Chris! I feel great that you are a UConn EEB graduate. I share your interests in raising public awareness about plants. In fact, I made a video about the plants that I am working on (please look up '3 minutes with waterworts'). I have more ideas for making movies but my time, as a PhD student, is very limited. Maybe, one day I will contact you about an idea for a movie.
