We need to cool off, so we're hitting the ice -- the curling ice, that is. On this episode we talk with Derek Leung, a graduate student pursuing a research master’s in geology at the University of Edinburgh. His focus is on the damage evolution of curling stones, so we wanted to hear what he's discovered about the rocks themselves.
Alison travels to the Nutmeg Curling Club in Bridgeport, Connecticut, to learn how to curl--and quickly finds out it's much more difficult than it looks. We learn about the Norwegian men's team's pants, and Jill talks with three-time curling Olympian John Shuster about changes he's made throughout his curling career to improve his skills.
