Life as a geoscientist contains many pleasures and perils, which are funny, or at least laughable. Numerous pop culture memes and tropes can be recast as humorously geological. Higher education settings provide an abundance of raw material ripe for comedic interpretations relevant to geoscientists. Crafting geocomedy from these aspects of professional life can serve to make geoscience, and geoscientists, more accessible and relevant outside the discipline. In this more lighthearted session, the medium of radio takes on a geoscientific slant in The Mappers’ Almanac and the Geophysical Redneck Call-In Show. Other sketches include a rock-polishing superhero that tackles geologic crime, a professor requesting instructional support, and a geology department chair discussing enrollments with a dean.
