Welcome to Season Two! This begins our second year of the show. Thanks for coming along for the ride. This week we have something special. We're joined by professional naturalist Brett Sieberer who also happens to be a huge fan of the show. He takes us on a hilarious journey though 5 questions to get to know the show hosts better. We had so much fun it is sure to be a yearly tradition!
This episode is really cool. (apologies for all the puns) Victoria illuminates the cool light of bioluminescence, Kirk takes us thousands of feet under the chilly Antarctic ice for a change scientific discovery and Rachel fills us in on immortal human cells.

This week we're excited to welcome Laura from the For the Love of Nature Podcast to the show. Be sure to check out the fun they have on their show as well. In this episode, Kirk talks Quantum Entanglement in bird eyes, Laura does a redux on Quicksand, Rachel talks frozen frogs and beetles that can walk on the UNDERSIDE of water. Weird indeed.

Victoria kicks us off this week with a story about flesh eating vulture bees. Kirk talks about Mt. Tambora, the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history and Rachel finishes her two-parter on the bizarre world of anaerobic respiration.
Rachel begins a Two Part expose on how turtles breathe with their butts in the winter. Victoria uncovers the truth about a mysterious plant we just discovered is actually carnivorous and Kirk takes on the bizarre Mpemba Effect. Does hot water really freeze faster than cold water?
Kirk kicks us off with the story of Krakatoa, possibly the most famous volcanic explosion of all time. We then all bond over our collective dislike of Pineapple (which is Rachel's topic), and Victoria tells us the mysterious tale of the Army Ants with two butts.
