Season 2: Enigmas; Episode 7: Marrella splendens; In paleontology, there is a word for fossil sites that seem to defy the laws of chance and nature: lagerstätten. This is the story of the most famous of the lagerstätte, a site only recognized for what it truly was decades after its discovery. This is the story of the Burgess Shale. Like the podcast?

Mini-episode 2: Barinasuchus arveloi This episode topic was chosen by Mathieu Dechalain. The pseudosuchians ruled before the dinosaurs, but they didn't just disappear after the end-Triassic extinction event. This is the abridged story of the rest of their history, and how they adapted to life during the reign of dinosaurs and beyond. Like the podcast? Contribute to my patreon campaign! Find my blog here.

Season 2: Enigmas; Episode 6: Megalosaurus bucklandii We take a lot for granted, including what we think we know about the world. Even the most familiar of prehistoric animals was once interpreted completely differently, and there is no telling if it won't change again.  This is a story about the first dinosaurs to be called dinosaurs, and how we must always question what we know.
