For our final episode, Jules is joined by the fantastic Miranda Lowe, Principal Curator of Crustacea at Natural History Museum, London. We talk about freshwater hog lice and water shrimps and how cool crustaceans are! Miranda talks about why crustaceans are so good at colonising new places and why they are worthy of our attention. At the end, Jules gives a fond farewell and a massive lengthy THANK YOU! to every scientist that has given their time for the show.

Jules speaks to Martin Fowlie, the RSPB's Media Relations Manager - a man with a (not-so) secret life as a beetle-lover. We talk freshwater weevils and how to find beetles in your garden. Martin's brilliant blog, called Of Moths and Men, is found here www.mothsandman.blogspot.com
