For today’s episode of the podcast I’m introducing you to Dr. Petr Yakovlev, a friend and geologist here in Butte at the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology. Petr will be doing occasional guest episodes to give you all a break from my voice, as well as information about some of the diverse things he's worked on.

In this episode Petr and I talk about his work in Tibet, which has implications for the fundamental nature of the India-Eurasia collision; another structural geology project he worked on in the Catskills of New York; and the projects he’s working on here in Montana. And he gives us some teasers about the kinds of topics he plans to cover for History of the Earth.
