    Peacock, Coming to NBC: featuring Kelly Noonan

    When a peacock fugitive is on the run, only the BPD can step in to restore justice. Or, just, sometimes peacocks like to escape the zoo. At least that's what is true in Kelly Noonan's experience. Kelly is a good friend, excellent writer, and real cool person. She shares real life peacock stories, real life Poshmark woes, and some deep introspection on this weeks episode.

    Axolittle, Axolotl: featuring Cozi Orlen

    What the heck is an axolotl? Cozi Orlen, aka host of the You Need To See This! podcast and indie, underground animal expert joins me to talk about these happy little sea lizards. We make a few too many references to Emily In Paris, and coin a new, very relevant phrase about blood.

    Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow: featuring Liz Marcucci

    Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow: featuring Liz Marcucci

    Spiders are scary. This episode is about black widow spiders, which are scary. So, to mitigate the terror, we spend more time talking about Scarlett Johansson than actual spiders. Turns out, they are both kinda weird. Liz Marcucci from the Who Dis? Show talks to me about these nifty lil spooders and so much more.

    The Humpback Shaq Attack: featuring Katie Cutler

    The Humpback Shaq Attack: featuring Katie Cutler

    Shaq is pretty dang tall. But how big is Shaq compared to a humpback whale? That's what comedian, actor, mask maker (Katie Does Good) and TikTok star (singersewer) Katie Cutler and I try to get to the bottom of in this episode. I mean, a lot happens, but... the Shaq conversation really deserves its own episode.

    Life is Good, Manatee: featuring Kate Wiersema

    Some people think manatees are big dumb potatoes. Kate Wiersema (CSz Minor League, Improductions LLC, general great person) hopes to help break that stereotype. She may not be an animal person, but she IS a manatee person. We talk about midwest cuisine, how dumb Christopher Columbus is, and so much more.
