One Species at a Time Podcast

Summer Praetorius has an unusual ability to find 4-leaf (and 5,6 even 7-leaf!) clovers. But she doesn't know how much other people even bother to look. Even so, they seem to find her. Summer researches tiny sea critters called foraminifera and she's good at recognizing different species and types. So sometimes she thinks she's just really good at pattern recognition. But most of the time, her ability to find 4-leaf clovers just feels special. And she passes the clovers along whenever she can. Listen to the podcast.
