00:00:00 - This week we are joined by the wonderful Jacquelyn Gill to talk about mammoths and the spores found in their poop! Jacquelyn does a ton of outreach with her blog and twitter, so support the effort by checking them out, ok?!
00:23:53 - Drinks. They're what happens when it's too late in the day for coffee. Ben is having his final Sussex Golden Ginger Ale, since it's only available in one part of Canada. No one has the heart to explain FedEx to him. Jackie is treating herself to a New Glarus Raspberry Tart float, which is just insane but probably delicious. Ryan goes to Hog Heaven. And Patrick has the spiciest of all wines, and likes it!
00:30:26 - Trailer Trash Talk is celebrating Jackie Chan's 100th movie which happened in 1911. Not as much to say about this particular Asian War Epic, other than the fact that everyone but Ryan seems to love them and Jackie Chan can sing.
00:39:56 - Mammoth hemoglobin might help your limbs keep oxygenated in the cold. Finally, paleontology put to good use!
00:57:53 - PaleoPOWs are like mammoths, hunted to extinction. Ryan gets and e-mail and donation from Eric W. But the money demands physics answers from Ben concerning faster-than-light neutrinos. Ben travels to the UK for an iTunes review. And Patrick has yet another donation from Kendal (male pronouns) that comes with a few caveats.
Thanks for listening! Check out Ryan on the latest episode of Inside the Atheists Studio if you're not sick of hearing him talk yet.

Random Jackie Chan Song - Not available on Amazon, but here's a video of him singing live
