750: Snakes with Legs, Cheetah Paternity, & Helmets for Dummies


Show Notes

This episode is wild. First we’re celebrating our 750th episode w/ a delicious cake from Kara McSweeney and Evanly Bakes. Mostly we realize how even after all these episodes of laughing and learning we still don’t know anything. We hear all the fun facts Sarah picked up from one of her wild nature documentaries (we are pretty sure she was high when she watched it though). She claims hares are faster than cheetahs, and we have questions about the legitimacy of this race. We realize we know nothing about how twins are made and whether humans can have twins with two separate fathers naturally or whether it can only happen through in vitro fertilization. Sarah talks about a cannibal family that apparently is one the most important history lessons (only to her and some other people in California, but don’t tell her that). She is warning people not to rely on AI to decide what to forage, and luckily Susie wouldn’t forage if her life depended on it, so she’s safe. We rage about the man who climbed a statue and broke its arm off and laugh about how we all would react if we were him. Humans are so dumb. Sarah gets mad about people who don’t wear helmets and wonders what in the world they’re thinking. People in the Philippines think they discovered a snake with legs (aka a lizard), but even though we’re no David Attenborough, we cracked the case on what’s really going on. Plus, Susie interviews J. Reuben Appelman about his new book While Idaho Slept about the murder of four young college students and the suspect who is going to trial. It’s a fascinating and nuanced look at the crime and the alleged killer.
