The cephalopods are descending upon Boston once again! Science Friday and WBUR are teaming up to present an evening full of cephalo-bration at CitySpace, where attendees can watch short science documentaries, hear from marine biology experts, take a backstage tour through a cephalopod culture center, and meet a real-life octopus.

Joining us on stage this time are a few cephalopod celebrities:

  • Bret Grasse, manager of cephalopod operations at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole
  • Anik Grearson, Master’s student in marine biology student at Northeastern University and fellow at the Bellono Lab at Harvard University, who is studying all things undersea, with a soft spot for octopuses.
  • Owen Nichols, director of marine fisheries research at the Center for Coastal Studies, who conducts research in collaboration with Cape Cod fisherfolk to support sustainable fisheries.

Dive deep with us in-person or plant your suckers at home with our livestream—no matter where you are, you can tune in to celebrate your favorite sea creatures.
