In episode 054 of crisscrossing Science, Mike Crosser (professor physics at Linfield College) and Chad Tillberg (professor of biology at Linfield College) invited Dr. Bill Fleeger (visiting senior scholar of environmental studies at Linfield College) into the studio to discuss policies for forest fires and how these ideas are starting to change. Given the forecast by the Predictive Services Program (part of the National Interagency Fire Center) for an above-normal fire season in 2019 for the western United States, Crosser and Tillberg recorded a new introduction to the episode for this encore presentation.
