We’re keeping it real festive this post-Christmas week with a deep dive into the circle of life, starting with a discussion of the ways in which evolution does wild things to keep organisms alive, and journeying on to a chat about how steadfastly committed humans are to ending other humans’ lives in creative ways.
[0:00] The wild spread of Omicron has Mark thinking about all the ways in which life finds an evolutionary way — from Inuit Ketosis to viral mutations.
[17:15] We talk about what the fuck is up with Kermit the Frog’s voice, our Christmas experiences
[29:20] We discuss what we watched this week, complete with a tangent on why weird looking actors like Benedict Cumberbatch and Adam Driver are proof we should have more body diversity in Hollywood
[52:40] We opened by talking about how life finds a way, but we’re spending the rest of the episode talking about things people have created in order to kill other people.
