    The Unthinkable

    The Unthinkable

    Because September 11 is next week, we're reposting our series about the attacks.

    Original description:
    Aaaaaaaand we're back! In this episode, Erika and Clare discuss "The Unthinkable" by Amanda Ripley, which is about the way human beings behave during disasters. Learn about why panic is largely a myth, Black Friday stampedes are the fault of store owners, and how capitalism + peer pressure killed a ton of people on 9/11.

    9/11 Part Two

    9/11 Part Two

    September 11 is next week, so we're reposting our series about what happened that day.

    Original description:
    The girls are back! This time with a multi-part series about what happened on September 11, 2001. The upside: You won't have to wait for the rest of the series, because it all drops today! The downside: We're covering the historical event that looked at Pearl Harbor and was all, "hold my beer."

    All That and a Dead Finch

    All That and a Dead Finch

    Brought to you by poor time management, it's a repost week!

    Clerika makes a blatant appeal to the masses by wading into the fast food of the historical world: Tudor England. In this episode, we cover what life was like for adult women during the period, from choosing the right midwife to bewitching local children with your evil old eyes. You know, because you're too old to have your period anymore and the devil has to escape from SOME kind of orifice.

    Listen, people, there's no reason to get upset--it's just science.

    This episode is rated PG-13, because the subject of childbirth comes up a lot and--shockingly--so do vaginas. And butter. Together. Cause again, science.
