Login to access this episode's extended interview (half an hour long)!

Hosts Natalie Newell (Skeptical Parenting) and Dan Broadbent (A Science Enthusiast):

Sponsor: Dragons. Because they're really real.

God of the week: Maui! Because who doesn't like a "trickster" god who dies by getting crushed by a vagina?

Topic: Ken Ham's Ark Encounter in rural Kentucky. The nearly $100 million theme park based around rape and incest is receiving about $18 million in taxpayer money. We're a bit upset about this situation. Dan went to the Ark though, so you don't have to! He's ready to tell you all about it. We're going to need more beer to get through this. You can see pictures on the blog post.

Why we love the Internet: r/HybridAnimals! In particular: this one, this one, this one, and this one.

Quote of the Week: “You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.” - Carl Sagan, Contact
