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 032: Hyena, Warrior Princess

In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel attempt some image rehabilitation on hyenas, those perennial underdogs. They’re such underdogs, in fact, that they’re technically more closely related to cats.  We present a remarkably tight analysis of these remarkably tight mammals. Stick with us, and you’ll never go hangry again!

 

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!

Episode 029: Better Call Saltwater Crocodiles

In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss one of Randi’s favorite animals: the tyrant known as the Saltwater Crocodile. Tremble in fear!

Episode 027: Wombatty About Wombats

In this episode, Nathaniel and Randi discuss Wombats, and our love/hate affair with Australia continues. (Just kidding; it’s more a love/like affair). Join us to see if these bloody wombos are great, or just okay.
