Gulf Stories

Gulf Stories Moments is a project of Story Lab at the University of West Florida Innovation Institute and WUWF. Each week, Gulf Stories Moments brings listeners insightful and fascinating conversations with UWF scholars about the research they’re doing on the Gulf of Mexico. Topics include maritime history, archaeology, invasive species and logistics.

Christian Garman, outreach manager for Story Lab, hosts the discussion each Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Gulf Stories Moments is adapted from Mother Mother Ocean, a free online course that features the work UWF researchers are doing on the Gulf of Mexico. For more information about the course, visit uwf.edu/gulfstories.
