Episode 044: Cheeraffes and Giraffes

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.

Episode 042: How the Elephant Got Its Crunk

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.

Episode 040: Weasel Words

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!

Episode 038: Shrew You, Buddy!

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).

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!
