    Selects: How Famines Work

    It's common knowledge that famines are usually caused by major droughts: Rain doesn't fall, crops don't grow, and people go hungry. But recent research suggests that while weather may trigger famines, they may actually be more of a human-made catastrophe. Find out more in this classic episode.

    Testosterone and Estrogen: Wondrous Hormones

    Testosterone and Estrogen: Wondrous Hormones

    We think of estrogen and testosterone as the female and male sex hormones and they may seem kind of gross (is that just Josh?), but that simple understanding is way off. A magical biochemical dance between the two creates everything from bones to moods.

    When Fort Knox was built in the 1930s to house America’s gold supply, it was billed as an impenetrable, impregnable, don’t-even-think-of-trying vault. But as the world has moved further away from gold, the stockpile’s lost a bit of its luster. Learn all about it in this classic episode.

    The Everglades: Wowee

    The Everglades: Wowee

    One of America’s most important ecosystems takes up more than half the state of Florida. It’s a river of grass, a cactus desert, and a saltwater bay all rolled into one. And there are alligators and crocodiles. And that’s just the beginning.

GOAT

Long time listener - this podcast never gets old. Josh and Chuck have the perfect balance of facts, information, stories, and side chats. SYSK had been apart of my life for a long time… and not all episodes are created equal. But it’s a podcast I continue to listen to after all these years. Well done and thank you!
