Giraffes. What up with them? Why they so tall? Are those antennae on them noggins? Whose idea was this? Randi and Nathaniel spelunk into one of the strangest species of the planet. Find out how giraffes smell (terrible), find out what they eat (plants, except when they don’t), and find out how they get high. Join us for a particularly elevated discussion in the latest All Creatures Great and Okay.
We take a look at one of the greatest of great animals: elephants. Find out more than everything you wanted to know about these wacky pachyderms, including one of the more alarming How Do You Think They Do It segments we’ve ever run. Be here or Behemoth.
We must, we must, we must increase our… Mustelid coverage. Yes, we’re back into the world of stoats, otters, badgers and pals for one of our most ubiquitous beasts, the weasel. Special attention is given to the inaptly named Least Weasel, and Nathaniel takes us on a global tour of weasel-based mythology, if the globe only had nine countries. And we somehow go the whole episode without making an Elie Wiesel pun, which really doesn’t sound like us. Enjoy!
In honor of shrews – those short, annoying, but adorable animals – we bring you a short, annoying, but adorable episode. Randi finds that the real shrew was inside of her all along, and Nathaniel won’t shut up about that Shakespeare guy, thus putting the savant in idiot savant. Make like a shrew and burrow into this great new installment of All Creatures Great and Okay. (EDITOR’S NOTE: double-check if shrews are burrowing animals).
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the elegant llama. Randi uses this episode as an excuse to complain about pregnancy, and Nathaniel uses this episode as an excuse for socialization.
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!
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 the mighty and mysterious tanuki–both the animal and the folklore figure.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss camels. Like, all of them. Not just dromedaries.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the American icon that is the black bear. The two wonder over this food-stealing creature, and a special guest drops by the studio.
