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 29 – How To Hack The Radio (Physics and Early History of Radio I)

Listen, podcasting is not an exact science, and this is not exactly Science’s episode. Editing is good, fam, just remember that.

Rissa hates moist innards. Science promises no death this time. Clio nearly poisons herself with tea.

Episode 24 – Hey Pope Urban II, You Missed (History of Turkey VII)

Kids these days. Putting off homework, obsessed with video games, debasing the currency…not like the good old days when Murad II was sultan, I tell you what. Come hear Clio talk about the Ottoman Empire!

Science makes a bad pun. Clio sums up all of human history twice. Rissa has high expectations.

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 11 – All Songs Are Breakup Songs (Tourist’s Guide to Prohibition I)

This week, Science takes a stand: podcasts that touch liquor shall never touch…hers. Mine. Ours. And then she talks about liquor for forty minutes. It’s a tourist’s guide to Prohibition!

Rissa begs for a job. Science has weird music taste, but at least she doesn’t blindly make playlists based on keywords, Clio.
