Follow her search as she looks to scientists, researchers, and experts for evidence about everything from what music cats like to the fluid dynamics of spilling coffee. "Every week, we'll keep looking for knowledge," says Paula, "because we know we left it somewhere."

Love It

I love this podcast .... I listen while on a stationary bike with headphones, which becomes awkward as I laugh hilariously out loud ... making my children, who have no idea what I’m hearing, wonder what’s up with mom. Thanks for making my workout so much fun!

Something light and funny. I can’t get enough of Paula. I love her on Wait Wait don’t Dell me.
