Science... sort of

Feb 21, 2012

00:00:00 - Lake Vostok is perhaps the most difficult to get to lake in the world. Yet the Russians have spent over a decade attempting to tap it. What's the deal? Why so interesting? And is it even a good idea? There's a lot to say about Vostok and the Paleopals waste no time diving right in. (Also: Secret Nazi Hilter clones from the South Pole, you can't make this stuff up.)

00:22:00 - Many people enjoy drinking near lakes. The Paleopals are no exception. Patrick is sitting on and sipping on a Red Chair from Deschuttes. Charlie has his the mark with an affordable Cotes du Rhone. And Ryan is slamming down a Hopslam.

00:26:00 - This week Trailer Trash Talk feels like its rehashing familiar territory as the Paleopals discuss Thin Ice.

00:35:00 - If lakes weren't already taking up enough space on land, now they're hiding out at the bottom of the ocean! While Patrick gets pedantic, Charlie and Ryan discuss the trippiness of these wicked "subaqueous lenses."

00:46:15 - PaleoPOWs are lot like lakes, Patrick is unsure of the definition of both. Patrick begins things with a donation and question from Andy G. Thanks, Andy! Charlie has a referential iTunes review from ryanaridder. And Ryan has some awesome Antarctic followup from Blair H.!
