Start listening to the VMNHcast!

Did you know that VMNH Administrator of Science Ben Williams hosts a podcast highlighting the work of VMNH scientists, staff and friends of the museum who are advancing science in Virginia and abroad?

In the latest episode of the VMNHcast, VMNH Associate Curator of Recent Invertebrates Dr. Kal Ivanov sits down with Ben to discuss his ongoing survey of the ants of Virginia. Along the way, he discusses some of his most surprising finds, some of Virginia's rarest ants, and just how likely you are to find a nest of fire ants in your own backyard!

You can subscribe to the podcast on Spotify and the Apple Podcast App, or you can listen to it online through your web browser by visiting the official VMNHcast webpage to listen or subscribe today!
