    Rats! With Special Guest Professor Monica Green

    Rats! With Special Guest Professor Monica Green

    In this episode, we dive into the world of rats. Sure, they can crawl up sewer pipes into your toilet and may have been at least partly responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of Europeans. But - they're also really smart, feel regret, and can show emotion with their ears.ย 
    This is a special episode. In our first half, we share cool rat facts. And in the second half, we interview Professor Monica Green, who studies plague. We learned so much from her about plague, how it was spread, and even that it is still around today.ย 
    We couldn't fit our whole interview with Professor Green into this episode, so we're including a longer interview on our feed. You should see it right behind this one.ย 
    Thanks to our Patreon sponsor Henry for getting us excited about rats! If you'd like to be a Patreon sponsor, please click here: https://www.patreon.com/coolfactsaboutanimals

    Rebroadcast - Mega Plastic Episode with Dr. Jenna Jambeck

    Rebroadcast - Mega Plastic Episode with Dr. Jenna Jambeck

    Today we are rebroadcasting our mega plastic episode.
    Weโ€™re replaying this episode now because we just found out that one of the people we interviewed for this episode, Dr. Jenna Jambeck, was named as one of the 25 MacArthur Genius Grant recipients for 2022. This is a really big honor!
    We have a lot planned in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for an episode with Weird But True author Julie Beer about all sorts of animal trivia. And then โ€“ our episode about rats. As part of that episode, weโ€™ll speak with historian Monica Green about the black death.
    But for now, we hope you learn a lot and gets lots of great ideas after hearing from Dr. Jambeck and our other guests about plastic pollution. ย
