Episode 035: Kakapo Joy Juice

In this episode, Nathaniel and Randi discuss the rotund kakapo, the parrot that is not particularly good at being a parrot. Listen intently as they mispronounce its name at least, like, five hundred times, and Nathaniel pours one out for a late, great comedy writer and conservationist – a comservationist, if you won’t. Join us in New Zealand and meet the bird that makes the kiwi look like an apex predator.

Episode 031: Cod Save the Queen

We barrel triumphantly into 2019 and a new, biweekly schedule. In this episode, we discuss the mighty cod, and also take time to spotlight Carl Linnaeus, father of binomial nomenclature (if you’ve ever seen a Wile E. Coyote & Road Runner cartoon, you know what binomial nomenclature is). Marvel as Nathaniel “um, actually”s a bunch of pronunciations, while getting Linnaeus’s name wrong literally every time he says it. Thrill as Randi somehow keeps the podcast on course while under a fever of 103 degrees (Celsius). From the coasts of Greenland to a slow boat to China, this is one of our most expansive episodes yet. And we talk about fish!
