Rich Ross

Burdened with glorious purpose

Secret Home Lab on Adam Savage’s Tested

The Tested Crew came over to the SHL as part 3 in a 4 part series about building an octopus puzzle.

(Note: This is a video series we filmed in 2018, before the current pandemic lockdown.) While we wait for the California Academy of Science’s Giant Pacific Octopus to learn Adam’s puzzle, Kishore and Indre visit biologist and cephalopod expert Rich Ross’ home aquarium and lab where Rich breeds and raises octopuses and other amazing critters. It’s one of the most fascinating home laboratories we’ve visited!

Rich is co host of the irreverent Reef Beef Podcast, the podcast that is like hanging out in the conference hotel lounge on Saturday night after the show has closed for the day. See and listen on youtube or any podcast source.
