Podcast Show Notes: Episode 11 – Greg Paul and Steve White

Podcast Show Notes

It’s time for the eleventh episode of the famous LITC podcast! Today, Marc, Niels and Natee discuss perhaps the single most influential book of dinosaur art in the entire world: Predatory Dinosaurs of the World, by one Gregory S. Paul ™. Marc interviews Friend Of The Blog Steve White about his upcoming compendium of Mesozoic Art, his new, gruesome alphabet book, and of course his legendary work for Dinosaurs! Magazine and the wilderness years that followed. In the news, Niels and Natee desperately try to give the ornithischians some love while the prima donna theropods soak up all the attention. How boring is Greg Paul? Does the Middle Jurassic even exist? Is working with palaeoartists like herding cats? Will Marc finish his licorice coin on time? All these questions and more will be answered.

In the News

  • Spicomellus, described here by Susannah Maidment et al, is a new early possible ankylosaurian from Middle Jurassic Africa, known from a single rib with spiky things on it. It’s cool.
  • Riparovenator and Ceratosuchops are two new baryonichine spinosaurids from the Isle of Wight, which Marc visits every year. The paper, available at open acces here, is wirtten by Chris Barker and absolutely everybody else.
  • Pendraig is another new theropod from the UK, this time a coelophysoid from Wales. Like Riparovenator, its specific name honours the late Angela Milner. Read the paper by Stephan Spiekman et al here.
  • Dakota is the spectacular mummified Edmontosaurus that preserves skin tissue and a hoof-like claw structure on the hand. It has been given a new museum exhibit at the North Dakota Heritage Center, with accompanying artwork by none other than our own Natee. Let us know if you have visited!

    When scanning an image from a book, put a black sheet of paper behind the page.The text from behind the image will be merged with the black sheet. The scanned image can then have its exposure increased to remove the black background and text.
