Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don't know stuff, but would like to. Every week, comedian and super-genius Emily Heller and cartoonist and mastermind Lisa Hanawalt, challenge their guests to share some knowledge on any topic they want.
List of CB Slang
Thank you for listening to this show, even if you just love falling asleep to the sound of our voices! On today's episode, Emily shares a strange experience with a neighbor, and Lisa has a frightening horse experience. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "List of CB Slang," a great guide if you're an aspiring Alligator Station (look it up)!
Now that the possibility of a safe Halloween is on the distant horizon, Emily has started planning her couple's costume. She also shares some of her thoughts on the very bad comic Heathcliff. Lisa shares her thoughts on an issue of a magazine. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Loveland frog," a legendary man-sized frog in Ohio folklore.
On today’s episode, Lisa shares about her upcoming surgery, as well as thoughts on Australia’s penis owl. Emily's dog Alan is out of surgery and has a racy new outfit. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Billiken, a charm doll created by an American art teacher and illustrator, who is said to have seen the mysterious figure in a dream. I don't like the way it looks.
Australia's Big Things
Sometimes it feels great to pack up and go for a hike with your feline companion. Sometimes you just want to practice your whip technique. All is fair game in Griffith Park! On today's episode, Lisa shares some stories from the trail, and Emily's dog eats maybe a nut or a stone fruit pit. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Australia's big things," a loosely related set of large structures, some of which are novelty architecture and some are sculptures. This list is incomplete as it does not include Paul Hogan's knife.
Nutty Narrows Bridge
It's a big day in Baby Geniuses history. This will be the episode you will all remember as "the one where Emily releases the sauce info."
On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Nutty Narrows Bridge, a bridge for squirrels and the world's narrowest animal crossing (citation needed).
Welcome to Baby Geniuses!
Or Hello Babies! Or however this usually goes! We start the show off by reading some letters sent in by listeners just like you. We also give a quick update on our hot sauce saga - a listener followed the clues and identified the sauce! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Computer Rage," and I silently but spiritedly nod in agreement in as Lisa complains about her Macbook's touch bar.
Lisa and Emily are very funny and charming. Emily’s stand up joke specials are great and I highly recommend Lisa’s books if you like comics (even if you don’t actually.) Plus horses!
Like eavesdropping on the best conversations
My fav podcast
I love Emily and Lisa’s points of view, they are extremely funny, and I wish I knew them IRL!
