Science... sort of

Mar 20, 2012

00:00:00 - Male fruit flies hit the bottle harder after rejection from females. There's brain chemistry involved which might actually help humans suffering from depression and PTSD. A study of drunk flies that could help humans? Potentially the perfect win-win science study.

00:16:26 - In the wake of St. Patrick's Day, what are the Paleopals enjoying? Jacob has a faux-Irish beer with a Killians. Charlie has a possible bourbon with Maker's Mark (including an excellent sounding recipe for bread pudding). And Ryan experiments in the world of Irish whiskey with a Charlie-approved Tullamore Dew.

00:24:14 - Ryan doesn't quite seem to get the title of this week's subject of Trailer Trash Talk: The Hunger Games. Thankfully, Jacob and Charlie are there to explain, along with helpful hints for how to utilize your town's digital library.

00:34:40 - Jacob is excited about the new hot thing in rocket launch technology, Ryan just wants to reminisce about the good old days. Can they find an accord? Yes, yes they can.

00:54:53 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like The Hunger Games, Ryan hasn't read a lot of them. Jacob starts off with a new recurring donation from Allison B. Thanks, Allison! And thanks again every month! Ryan has a long overdue e-mail from Brooks E. concerning podcast convergences from times past. And finally Charlie provides a Facebook roundup from Thom G., who's enjoying his Science... sort of swag, and Andy B., who laments our failure to defenestrate in last week's episode.
