New Podcast on Aquatic and Invasive Plants

Introducing the Working in the Weeds Podcast

The UF/IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants is excited to announce its new podcast: Working In The Weeds! This series will connect scientists with stakeholders to clarify and discuss issues surrounding aquatic and invasive plants, while also highlighting the research being conducted at the Center.

“What I’m hoping is that this podcast will elevate us to have better conversations about invasive plants,” Ferrell said. “Our listener can expect a series of good conversations from really good scientists coming together and talking about these topics.”

This podcast will premiere on February 23 with the release of two episodes. In our first episode, center director Dr. Jay Ferrell sits down with education and training specialist Christine Krebs to introduce this new podcast, explain the mission of the Center, and set out the future for our series. In episode two, Dr. Ferrell and Christine will talk about invasive terminology and common invasive plants in Florida.

The Working In The Weeds podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google PodcastsOvercast, and Stitcher. Or listen now on our podcast webpage. New episodes will be released every other Wednesday. Do you have topics or questions you would like us to discuss on this podcast? Email us at
