    What if hair grew everywhere it doesn't now?

    This hair-raising Wonderlette knows no bounds. Just when hairy people thought they couldn’t get any harrier - rest a-sheared, The Wonder Women find a way! Why do we have hair where we do, and why don’t we have it inside our mouths or on our eyes? These are the questions we must ask!

    This week The Wonder Women unbeard the ancient history of human body hair, and look to science for clues to living in a world where hair is in all the wrong places. If you’ve ever fancied going to the groomer alongside your dog, or wondered why there’s that little bit of fuzz on most of your skin - well, you’ve come to the right place.

    What if both cis men and women could get pregnant, and you didn't know which?

    What if both cis men and women could get pregnant, and you didn't know which?

    Baby on board! Penis dangle, anal birth, colon bubble, breast pouch...Phillipian Tube and Pregory hold nothing back in this week’s episode as they explore the ins and outs of male pregnancy. From vacuum sex conception to feeding babies blood, this no-holds-barred epsiode leaves no wonder un-wondered.

    Pregory and Phillipian Tube scoured the ends of the internet to bring you these rollicking and at times cringeworthy wonders, turning to nature for inspiration, and googling googles that quite possibly have never been googled. When they finish reimagining the stages of pregnancy to suit a cis male mother, our hosts this week take you through some of the social implications of cis male and female pregnancy.

    Would the world be a better place if cis men and women could get pregnant? Or is the patriarchy inevitable? Did we discover the origin of vampires? Decide for yourself after hearing the facts and wonders on this week’s episode.

    What if we didn't have a moon?

    Journey to space as The Wonder Women ponder a world without Earth’s oldest and dearest satellite. Ban Ki No Moon and Sailor Moonless take you from the origins of life all the way to the space race as they uncover one surprise after another of how life would be without this shiny piece of giant space rock.

Our hosts this week uncover how this glorious orb plays a critical role in our planet, our climate, our technology - and more!

    What if forests could move?

    What if forests could move?

    Race through your imagination with Sassa-haul-ass-a-frass and Jogwood as they uproot the truth of moving forests. While they chase down facts and drum up some rhymes, they’ll speculate on the what, why, and how of moving forests, and discuss the impacts of this jaw-dropping phenomenon.

    Would the world be a new Wild West in the wake of these wandering woods? Learn about the “wood wide Web”, explore some controversial cutting-edge science, question the very nature of evolution itself, and even indulge in some psycho-analysis in this far-ranging episode.

    Are trees and forest communities in which they live a lot ‘smarter’ than people think they are? Do we take these gentle giants for granted? Are forests just domesticated trees? Decide for yourself as you wonder along with our two tree-hugging hosts.

Love it

The intro alone is a reason to listen to this podcast! Lol I love the short episodes for on the go! Love it! Keep it up!

FatterStan ,

Fun!

I used to spend so much time wondering, but the Wonder Women take care of that for me now. The podcast is whimsical and I like it.

R! (RexlcamationPoint) ,

Like the silly aunts you wish you had...

This show is fun, funny, and well-researched. Think of all the questions about the world you pondered as a kid, which no one took seriously. Now add some grown-up level research, a sense of humor, and plenty of imagination. Finally, people to take on life's big questions in a serious (but not too serious) way!
