This week, Bill and Ben are joined by Jeff Scott, Nipissing University Professor, and Larry Dyke, Professor Emeritus from Queen’s University and longtime member of the Geological Survey of Canada.

The group talks about giant holes that appear in nature coined “potholes”. Larry explains how these are formed and that their existence is a good indicator of how the land has changed over time. Bill talks about his adventures to different potholes throughout Ontario with Jeff.
