Dragons with Mr. Eric and Dracomax of What If World
Dragons are one of the most amazing animals in the world - but it's hard to get the facts about them when they are so rare.
Luckily, we were able to speak with Mr. Eric of What If World and a real live What If World dragon, Dracomax! Dracomax fills us in on all sorts of interesting stuff about dragons, like their favorite jokes, systems of governance, and their deepest, darkest secrets (it involves pudding). We hope you have as much fun listening as we did making this episode. If you do, be sure to check out What If World!
