    What's in a Name? - The Full Moon Names Bonus Episode

    During the Super-Duper, Bluer, Blood Moon episode Pat and Eric did some research on the names of all the full moons throughout the year.  It was some really good stuff but it was too long to fit into that episode, so here is a bonus episode with all the full moon names.  We hope you enjoy!

    The Super-Duper, Bluer, Blood Moon

    The Super-Duper, Bluer, Blood Moon

    A good friend of the podcast, Kelby, asked about the super blue blood moon over on the But Daddy Why Facebook page. Pat and Eric don't really need much of an excuse to talk about stuff in outer space, especially the moon. So for everyone who was curious about the super blue blood moon in January get ready for the details.  Pat and Eric will break down what a supermoon is, what a blue moon is, and even explain why a total lunar eclipse turns the moon red instead of making it disappear. You'll even find out how long you'll need to wait until the next super blue blood moon (spoiler... it is not as long as people had to wait for this last one).

    If Oct Means 8 Why is October Month Number 10?

    So we all know an octopus has 8 legs, an octagon has 8 sides so by that logic October should be month number 8... but it isn't.  In this episode Pat and Eric explain why and they discover a whole host of other screwy things about the calendar as well.
