EP192: Bratz Dolls, Dino Hunting, & Skittles Conspiracy


Today we talk about our art doppelgängers and why some states won’t allow the Google Arts & Culture app. Hear about the Bratz dolls war with Barbie, and why it reveals a lot about intellectual property, race, culture, and even the #metoo movement. We discuss how Capetown is running out of water and the world is running out of sand. We are furious about a Skittles conspiracy that reveals the way we experience food. Plus, we talk to postdoctoral fellow at the Royal Ontario Museum, Dr. Victoria Arbour, about dinosaurs, being a woman in a male-dominated field, and evolution (you can find her here: www.pseudoplocephalus.com).
