Change in our oceans is a social problem, too.

52 minutes

Co-hosts Jacquelyn Gill and Ramesh Laungani speak to Melissa Watkinson, who researches the social and cultural dimensions of ocean acidification in the Pacific Northwest.

Watkinson is a Citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and grew up in the Pacific Northwest where she considers the Salish Sea her home.

Also, Jacquelyn shares the nasty truth about vanilla flavoring.

Here's a study guide to go along with the show, courtesy of Melissa.
