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!
In this special episode, Randi and Nathaniel use their symposium on reindeer as a pretense for visiting the North Pole. You’ll probably believe all of the crazy characters they encounter!
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss one of Randi’s favorite animals: the tyrant known as the Saltwater Crocodile. Tremble in fear!
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the exploitable cone snail. Behold!
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.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the red-footed booby and the blue-footed booby. It’s a remarkably civil and mature conversation.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the mighty coconut crab, Devourer of Amelia Earhart.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the mighty and mysterious tanuki–both the animal and the folklore figure.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the majestic monarch butterfly. Many references to The Venture Brothers are made, and French accents are butchered. Join us to find out if monarch butterflies are great, or just okay.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the mighty box turtle. More specifically, they delve in the western box turtle, which Randi has actual, real experience with. Seriously, she’s kind of a box turtle expert, so hit her up, turtle scientists! Tune in to find out if box turtles are great, or just okay.
