Dr. Erika Martin takes a turn at the host microphone while Clay is on vacation. Doc Martin is currently on the faculty of the Department of Biology at Emporia State University. When she is not teaching and doing scholarly things, she contributes to the Fish Nerds Network by providing expert commentary on our Facebook group and doing fish profiles for her segment: “The Doctor is In”. In this episode, Doc Martin recounts some good fish stories from Indiana and chimes in on a pet fish story during “Fish in the News”. She also does her classic report on Pterapogon kauderni, the Banggai cardinalfish, and let’s us know this popular marine aquarium fish is also endangered in the wild. She does a great job sitting in for Clay this week and even takes over some of the singing duties.
