00:00:00 - Contrary to what cryptozoologists would have you believe, scientists don't often find new large species, which is what makes this new tapir so very exciting! But does this discovery help or hinder bigfoot's chances of existing? Listen in and find out...
00:16:35 - We may not have built-in face-straws, but that doesn't mean the Paleopals can't enjoy a drink! Patrick learns a lesson from his father and enjoys some Evan Williams 10-Year Single Barrel bourbon. Abe classes it up with the authentic Orval Trappist Ale. And Ryan continues his tour of Panamanian beers with a refreshing Balboa.
00:25:02 - Patrick can't quite understand the excitement Abe and Ryan have for LEGO: The Movie, possibly because as a parent he might have to watch it roughly 1,000,000 times, but that doesn't prevent them from discussing it on this week's Trailer Trash Talk!
00:35:51 - As if volcanoes weren't already scary enough, now new research is suggesting that magma can move a lot faster than we thought. So, y'know, duck or run or something.
00:56:34 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like volcanoes, unpredictable and potentially catastrophic. Patrick announces a new recurring donation from Kristie G. Thanks, Kristie! Sinni B. e-mails in asking how to get their science mojo back, suggestions include some of the following: The Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan (as well as watching the original Cosmos), the courses provided by Coursera, and the plethora of videos available on Ted-Ed. Sinni also wants to know our thoughts of Australia's anti-science policies being implemented by their new prime minister. Ryan ends things with a wonderful iTunes review left by flotsamlee.
