In this month's episode Mostly Weather returns after a short hiatus to tackle its first climate related topic.

Podcast regulars Niall Robinson, Doug McNeall and Claire Witham are joined by climate scientist John Kennedy, an expert on global temperature records.

We’ll find out what it takes to measure global temperatures, why they’re such an important piece of evidence in our understanding of climate change, and why buckets turn out to be crucial.
