    Hello babies!

    Lisa had a bad thing happen (she's ok!). Emily saw Cats (she's ok!). On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Victor Lustig, a highly skilled con artist infamous for being the man who sold the Eiffel Tower twice. He also sold a box that duplicated money.

    Extreme Ironing

    Hello babies!
    Emily forced Lisa to watch The Circle, the new reality based series on Netflix. Both Lisa and Emily have recently finished watching Sex And The City. Emily went straight from this recording to a screening of Cats, so we will finally fully address that next episode. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia Page for Extreme Ironing. We dive into the controversies and the characters of the sport with the fewest wrinkles.

    Hello babies! 
    Happy holidays from your two favorite rowdy altos. This season, Lisa has an encounter with some celeb xmas trees. Emily pitches a visit with the Gävle Goat. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Icelandic Christmas folklore, which depicts mountain-dwelling characters and monsters who come to town during Christmas. The stories are directed at children and are used to scare them into good behavior. How fun!

    Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples

    Hello babies!

    It is finally winter, the greatest season to live under a blanket and binge watch a classic show you've never seen! Lisa is diving into Sex And The City for the first time and we take the opportunity to judge the characters and the actors. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples. We try to figure out which he has more of - names or controversies!

    Hello babies! 
    Happy Turkey Week! On today's episode, Lisa rants about holiday gift guides and Emily is still interested in gardening. We read the Wikipedia page for Tempest Prognosticator. In Honor of Emily's Endorse Horse selection this week, the rest of this episode description will be written by AI: This week, it's a horse you don't even recognize. Emily finally got her next cavalry addition. We spend most of last week on horse stuff, and it seemed to get me cranky after a while. You know, not as cranky as one of our male visitors, but just a little cranky nonetheless. If I'm a pack animal, Emily's Horses are the same. Aww

Yes.

I work at home alone and listening to this is like hanging out with smart, funny friends. So nice. Plus I like everything Lisa Hanawalt puts into the world. Support ladies who make things, lol and learn with Baby Geniuses!

I am a learned pig

Lisa and Emily always put me, a learned pig, in such a good mood. Their laughter is absolutely contagious! From talking about horses and Martha Stewart to learning something new every episode, this podcast has everything you need, (except for another straight white dude on a podcast!).

Love love love

This podcast is so good it hurts - in a lovely, I-miss-it-when-it’s-not-around way. Emily and Lisa are so funny I have found myself inadvertently snort-laughing while listening on a regular basis. I find their willingness to barrel through even the most meandering Wikipedia pages delightful. All the segments are great, and I get the jingles/intros stuck in my head for hours. Please keep going!
