Episode 046: Platypus O Plomo

Well, we did it. We’ve discussed every single animal on earth. There’s nothing to do but hop in the houseboat and sail away into the sunset. Before we do, however, we have a jam-packed episode, with several special guest appearances, final installments of some of our favorite departments, and a focus on one of the...


Episode 045: Friends of the Octopod

In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss Randi’s favorite animal. That is all.


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....


Episode 043: Harpy Go Lucky

Randi takes Nathaniel along on a ride down memory lane as they discuss harpy eagles. These formidable beasts first made an impression on the young Randi during a third grade school project. Their cultural presence extends from the classroom and into video games and other media. Oh, and there are some harpy-wife tropes as well....


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 041: Mosquit-Oh Nos!

Not content to just talk about animals, we take another deep dive into the history of animal research with a discussion of taxonomist, naturalist historian, and professional Roman PLINY THE ELDER. Then, belatedly, tragically, reluctantly, we get to the most abhorrent of all the earth’s creatures, The Mosquito. Find out if mosquitoes are great, or...


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...


Episode 039: And My Axolotl

We discuss axolotls, the remarkable amphibians and sexual spectrum mascots. Anything else we tell you is just going to sound made up, so check out the podcast to hear about these insane little doodads.


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...


Episode 037: The Real Hoax Blues

Oru Kaiju Daishingeki! It’s our one-year anniversary, so we’re bringing you twice the goodness with a double dip of crazy creatures. Join us as the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus squares off against its eternal adversary: the Bavarian Wolpertinger. Do these two “hoax animals” really exist? Some say maybe. Other aren’t so sure. The raddest hosts...


Episode 036: Zebra Mussel Memory

Randi and Nathaniel’s funthlies are in full force this episode, as they talk about zebra mussels. Prepare for the invasion.


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...


Episode 034: The Barn Owltimatum

In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel use the podcast as a flimsy pretense to talk about Dungeons & Dragons. Also, Nathaniel picked the title. Address all complaints to him.


Episode 033: ¿Como se Llama?

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.


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...


Episode 030: The Podcast Got Run Over by a Reindeer

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!


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 028: Cone Snail Trails

In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel discuss the exploitable cone snail. Behold!


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.
