Podcast: Living on earth - Befriending An Octopus

Doing a rabbit trail from a Kraken Rum FB reference, I came across this fun pod cast from Living On Earth of scheduled GPO encounter at the New England Aquarium. For more information leading up to the encounter see Sy Mongomery's two articles about meeting Athena and later Octavia in the Orion Magazine Blog section.

Both the articles and the pod cast give a nice set of facts about octopuses. The pod cast is, perhaps a little over exuberant but still entertaining and would work well for a classroom.
