    Hippo Attack - Marius and his Pet Hippo Humphrey

    Hippo Attack - Marius and his Pet Hippo Humphrey

    Jeff once again takes the lead to tell the tragic and cautionary tale of Marius, a South African man with a penchant for the outdoors and exotic animals, and his pet hippo Humphrey. Wes dives deep into how many people are killed by hippos every year, and then the guys wrap things up by discussing their favorite drug dealers (we promise it makes sense by the end).

    Shark Attack - New-Found Trouble in the Old-Time Caribbean

    Shark Attack - New-Found Trouble in the Old-Time Caribbean

    Mike finds an old story about a group of sailors who had never encountered a shark before, let alone been attacked by one. Then the crew has a little competition to see who can guess what animal Mike is talking about from old passages documenting the first time an old explorer encountered them.

    Eagle Attack - Unsafe in Unalaska

    Eagle Attack - Unsafe in Unalaska

    Jeff captain's the Tooth and Claw ship and sets sail for Unalaska, Alaska (it'll make sense when you listen) to talk about a small-ish fishing community that has a contentious relationsip with bald eagles. We then get into a more successful round of Facts to Make Mike Like this Animal than the last one, and Wes wins Mike some money through ineptitude.

    Mountain Lion Attack - A Mountain Lion Piggyback Ride

    Mountain Lion Attack - A Mountain Lion Piggyback Ride

    Stephen Campbell got a lot more than he bargained for when he was attacked from behind while pipelining near Grande Prairie, Alberta. Wes takes advantage of another opportunity to talk about Lord of the Rings, Jeff channels his inner WWE wrestler, and Mike is once again insensitive about people experiencing emotions.

    Box Jellyfish Attack - SMH, These Jellyfish Stings Really Hurt

    Box Jellyfish Attack - SMH, These Jellyfish Stings Really Hurt

    Mike assumes the lead role again, and covers an astounding case of a young Australian girl having a terrifying run-in with an Australian Box Jellyfish. The gang talks a lot about pee, and then get into a small activity about non-predatory defensive mechanism in animals.

I’ve been pretty negative of this podcast in the past, but now that I’ve warmed up to it I absolutely love it! It’s very funny and every time a (free) episode is released I get super excited and listen to it at bedtime. Keep up the good work!
