I just wanted to write briefly to thank you for listening to Wavelengths Ocean Podcast and for following this blog.
You’ve probably noticed it’s been several weeks since I’ve uploaded an episode. I’m taking a short planning and production break. I hope to have Wavelengths back up with regular bi-weekly episodes later this spring. I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on.
Please share any comments or suggestions you have for the next “season” of Wavelengths.
