The PrimateCast has rolled out its mobile podcasting unit once again, this time to cover the joint meetings of the International Primatological Society and American Society for Primatologists held between August 21-27, 2016. This year's congress was hosted by the Lester E. Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes of Lincoln Park Zoo, and the conference was held at Navy Pier in Chicago, USA.
In this introductory podcast, we showcase a smattering of the many voices that could be heeard at IPS/ASP 2016 in Chicago. Cecile Sarabian and Andrew MacIntosh took their mobile recording devices around the exhibition hall at Navy Pier to hear from delegate after delegate about... well, about not that much really but we're certain that you'll all enjoy listening to it anyway! And, you'll get our perspectives on the conference and these little short interview clips throughout.
We close the episode with an interview with organizers Dr. Steve Ross and Dr. Lydia Hopper, who give us their impressions on the conference and all the hard work that led up to it, including how they plan to cool down from all the madness! Stay tuned for the many upcoming podcasts featuring scientists that attended the conference, including Laura Marsh, Karen Strier, Charlie Nunn, Fabian Leendertz, Chris Whittier and Lilian Pintea.
We'd like to sincerely thank all of our guests on this episode as well as on the entire series of podcasts from our coverage of the 26th Congress of the International Primatological Society. We look forward to Nairobi 2018. Be sure to check out our other podcasts featuring interviews with leading scientists in primatology and beyond.
