A podcast exploring how the world of volcanoes interacts across nature, culture and society
In our final episode for Series 1, we're stepping off this world as Dr. Natalie Starkey takes us on a journey to volcanic activity across the solar system, and how she came to write a book all about it: Fire and Ice.
