    Exhibit 21: Long Live the King

    Tyrannosaurus rex is probably the first thing to pop into our heads when we hear the word “dinosaur.” The tyrant lizard king might be the most popular dinosaur there ever was. But...its reign came at the end of an era. There were other, equally fearsome predators before it, so how did tyrannosaurs come to wear the crown? In its time, and in ours?

    In 1967, sideshow performer Frank Hansen unveiled an ape-like man frozen in a chunk of ice. World-renowned zoologists pronounced that it was a real, unknown animal. Was it the abominable snowman?

One of my favorites

One of my favorite podcasts of all time. There is mystery, suspense and humor. I really like the pacing of these stories which I can’t explain why, but it’s very good. I even showed some episodes to my daughter who loves this show too. We bonded over the Mary Anning episode (please Sir, post it again!). Looking forward to future episodes.

Informative

This podcast has a really fun mix of history, paleontology, and the lesser known oddities of our universe. It's well paced with a lot of well researched information to take in, but presented in an engaging way. Bringing in other people for their perspectives every once in a while keeps it fresh.
