Hurst: Hi Carol, welcome back!
Carol: Good to be back! It was a busy week but I’m ready to discuss some animal news. I added two stories about the meat and meat substitute industries that I found fascinating.
Hurst: Well I’m all for a meat substitute after I found out that scientists are worried that the consumption of deer meat could give humans Chronic Wasting Disease! It makes a veggie burger sound pretty good. And amid plenty of stories about climate devastation I was glad to read about the possibility of sturgeon returning to the Hudson River!
Carol: What are surgeons doing in the Hudson river? Are they on a boat? I guess it is spring break but I thought most people went to Cancun.
Hurst: Wow I really missed your humor last week. Anyway, see you next week!
