    Fantastic Listening! Have toured the Lab several times and always amazed of coming together of agencies working as a collective unit. This interview gives insight to what the lab offers and his duties as a lab director.
    Going to use the recording as teaching tool for my students!
    Thanks for the post! Enjoyed it!
