For those of you new to podcasting, MASNA Live is a monthly podcast brought to you by the Marine Aquarium Societies of North America. A typical podcast lasts for roughly an hour and you can either subscribe to their podcast through iTunes, RSS, or listen to it from their website.
This month’s MASNA Live features a number of segments starting out with Matt Pedersen and Marc Levenson talking about MASNA Speaks and small clubs. For those of you that don’t know what MASNA Speaks is, it’s a program run by MASNA that allows clubs to choose a speaker from MASNA’s speaker database and, if accepted, MASNA will pay up to $300 of the actual transportation and lodging expenses for any of these speakers to attend your meeting. In the next segment, Jim Adelberg, Eric Cohen, Brandon Klaus, Matt Pedersen, Andrew Rhyne, Richard Ross, and Tal Sweet participate in a group discussion about marine aquarium issues currently taking place in Hawai’i and their take on it. The final segment winds down with a report from Ret Talbot regarding the various house and senate bills currently on the table in Hawai’i.
This is one podcast that I do not miss and I highly recommend that you listen to it as it’s certain to be educational.
