Episode 41: I’m the Pants Lawyer (Thurídur Einarsdóttir ft. Sebastían)

It’s a very special post-Christmas Christmas episode of The Liberal Aren’ts, where we learn about a piece of Icelandic history with our Icelandic friend Sebastían! Sebastían (he/him/she/her) regales us with the story of a woman who was a fisherman, a sea captain, and…an amateur detective?! Learn about Þuríður (Anglicized as Thurídur) Einarsdóttir with us! Plus, Rissa tells us why the three wise men in your Grandma’s nativity set are diverse despite being manufactured in the seventies!

Clio wants to start a spin-off series. Sebastían always blames the Victorians. Rissa is in love with Þuríður. You can miss Science with those permits.

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 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 20 – Guys, I’m a Coffee Plant (History and Science of Coffee)

What’s the worst way to make coffee? Imagine it now. Got it? You’re wrong, this is way worse. Today Science talks the history, culture, and science of coffee.

Rissa shushes middle schoolers. Science pronounces three names wrong and one name right! Clio needs a fish.

The book Science mentioned is Uncommon Grounds: The History of Coffee and How It Transformed the World, by Mark Pendergrast. Check it out!

Episode 6 – A Shocking Number of PB&J’s (Joan of Arc II)

This episode is appearing a day early because Science will be driving to Montana all day on Wednesday, and because if the timing is right there may still be time for YOU to support Podcon (where Science will be going in December) at podcon.com!

Rissa talks tactics. Clio goes on a diet. Science is psyched out of her mind about Podcon.
