And They Were Both Walruses (Norse Mythology I)

Do you love a mythological cow? You’re about to! Join us as Rissa regales us with Norse mythology, but first: cursed science facts with Clio!

Clio recommends you buy your beloved a snail. Science had a pokemon on her desk. Rissa wants you to forget Marvel.

If you buy Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, don’t forget to go to your local bookstore or Bookshop.org!

Check out this snail hunting down this starfish, it’s totally rad.

Episode 38: Pro-Vax Chicken Nuggets (Analyzing Jurassic Park I)

Have you ever been stalked by a velociraptor? Does cloning mammoths appeal to you? Are you in love with Dr. Alan Grant? Do you want to learn more about the narrative structure of the Jurassic Park movies? Then this episode is for you!

Clio has great news. Rissa thinks we should play God a little, for the megafauna. Science was a kid with a dinosaur book.

Episode 37: Ruin the Stone (Birthstones II)

Are you a hater? Do you google things mid-podcast? Are you genetically predisposed to go fast? Then this is the episode for you! Join us for part two of Clio’s birthstone series. Then we have another round of Science! Or! Nonsense!

Clio is going with William the Conqueror on this one. Science is always ready to talk about death rays. Rissa is feeling very validated by confused historical gemology.

Episode 37: Ruin the Stone (Birthstones II)

Episode 36: Blame God for Snails (Birthstones I)

What happens when Clio does science? Some extremely cursed science facts, of course! Join us as we are regaled with tales from Clio’s day job, as she delights and horrifies us on the science, history, and mythos of the gemstones she works with every day. Plus, a rousing game of our new segment, Science Or Nonsense!

Clio is a sneaky mom. Rissa is thinking like a medieval monk. Science is “mining” for content. (Get it???)

Episode 35: Disney Lied To You (Greek Mythology III)

That’s right, we’re back! And we’re talking a lot about ungulates for some reason, including evil horses, poison cows, sexy bulls, and bad, naughty, frat boy centaurs. Join us for the long, long, long (long!!) awaited next installment of Rissa’s mythology corner as we learn about Heracles. Plus, a life update in the segment formerly known as Post-Grad Problems.

Science is never going back to school again. Rissa is a stickler for historical epochs. Clio needs to study her Russian.

Episode 34: We Are Out of Fur (Greek Mythology II)

Happy Halloween! Welcome to this sPoOkY ePiSo — Yeah, no, we forgot this episode was going up on Halloween. It’s not spooky. It’s another edition of Rissa’s Very Chill Story Corner, where we reiterate: do not trust Zeus. Don’t accept gifts from Zeus! Don’t help Zeus hide philandering, don’t fall in love with him, don’t talk to him. Not worth it! Prometheus knew what was up!

Clio gets political. Rissa wants her own podcast! Science is…too excited?!

The song that might be about turning into a tree is “Happy All the Time” by Danny Schmidt. Rissa recommends Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes and George Washington is Cash Money. Clio recommends The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson. Science recommends the podcasts Arden, Zoo, and We Fix Space Junk.

Episode 33 – Set Up Shop In Zeus’ Head (Greek Mythology I)

Welcome to The Liberal Aren’ts, where we ask hard-hitting questions: Do Viruses Have Aristotelian Souls? Why So Many Heads And Arms? Did You Do The Sex Correctly? What’s The Greek Version Of A Bacchanalia? Do I Like You Well Enough To Break The Law For You? And MORE.

Science names things that are fake. Rissa stans Hestia. Clio’s problem is other people’s taxes.

Episode 31 – How Dare You Defy God’s Rain! (Publishing Sci-fi and Fantasy ft. Jarod K. Anderson)

What even is literature? We just don’t know. It’s probably made up. Author and podcaster Jarod K. Anderson visits the show to tell us about publishing your work, the nature of literature, and writing for yourself.

Clio thinks the University of Michigan is a scam. Jarod thinks Literature just steals what it likes. Science can publish that anywhere. Rissa can be mean…Once.

Publish your work! Duotrope.com and Ralan.com.

Play a game! Sryth.com.
