Title: "Globular Clusters: A New Twist on Old Populations"

Synopsis: We are learning more and more that globular clusters are by no means the pristine, simple populations that we used to think they were. They are actually quite complicated with multiple episodes of star formation and multiple populations inside them. This poses serious challenges for models of cluster formation, and we'll be covering the details of these findings.
