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.
Happy MaxFun Block Party, babies!
And a special welcome to all the new babies out there! This episode is made with the new listener in mind. If you're a long time listener, don't fret! There will be plenty for you to enjoy. On Wiki of the Week, we read the most requested Wikipedia page that we've already read. "Le Pétomane was a French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer. He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seemingly fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, "to fart" with the -mane, "-maniac" suffix, which translates to "fartomaniac". The profession is referred to as "flatulist", "farteur", or "fartiste".

Love These Amazing Ladies!!!
Emily and Lisa are truly two national treasures! They are so incredibly funny, talented, smart, and make every work commute, quiet day at the office, or extended afternoon run pure perfection with their hilarious banter, genuine friendship, and razor sharp wit! I had to make sure I wrote a review just to let these marvelous women know they are simply the best (said in a Tina Turner bravado of course) ❤️❤️❤️.
