Voices of La Brea - Bonus Episode

August 10, 2019

We were in southern California for NAPC recently, so we sat down with a bunch of the crew from La Brea to get some insights into their work, their history, and their favorite things about the site.

In this audio, you’ll hear from:
Dr. Emily Lindsey, Assistant Curator and Excavation Site Director
Dr. Mairin Balisi, NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Laura Tewksbury-Wall, Senior Preparator
Sean Campbell, Preparator
Connie Clarke, Preparator
Students from the La Brea Tar Pits Field School

Thanks to everyone who spoke with us!
