The intersection between botany and medicine ft. Dr. Aidan Kaye Bark of the willow tree is turned into Aspirin. Bark of the Cinchona Tree is turned into Quinine- the anti-malarial drug you enjoy in your average gin and tonic. Tonic water is sugar mixed with cinchona bark. But British colonizers liked to get drunk while they medicated themselves from the parasites spread by the mosquitoes of India. The main premise of the episode is that bugs eat plants and die BECAUSE they are small. But a certain arthropod used to be GIGANTIC. 400 million years ago, scorpions used to be three feet long. And like all scorpions, they glow under UV light. I for one welcome out glowing scorpion overlords. But our atmosphere needs A LOT more oxygen to bring them back. Plant a tree. Listen to our episode about planting trees to learn more. Pour yourself a nice G&T and enjoy. For more of Dr. Aidan Kaye follow @TroveoftheSacred on Instagram
One reason we go into REM sleep, the time at night when we dream the most, is because it keeps the brain warm. When we are cold, we shiver. When we dream, our brain "shivers." But is there any meaning to our nightly shivers? I don't know. But I had fun exploring the idea with my friends. Music by: Nick Hussey, Hannah Schuerman, Jorge Schuster Featuring: Liz Fiola, Kevin Gregorio, Nora Yakscoe
a made up story about the origin of the word tutu
A group of owls is called a parliament. A group of larrikins googling bird facts is a called a podcast. We talk about bird name origins and etymologies, followed by bird behavior and over sharing about my penis. Please consider donating to teamtrees.org. One dollar equals one native tree. Plant the tree->to bring the insect->to bring the bird that likes the insects.
a group of owls is called a parliament. a couple of larrikins talking about dirty birds is a podcast   @4 mins  birds and the bees is a bad phrase, put your suggestions in the comments   @17 mins the ‘goose’ in gooseberry is from an unknown origin. Sorry. BUT in the 1800s ‘gooseberry bush’ was slang for pubic hair   @ 28 mins the last element created was in 2016, not 'last month' as i said on the podcast   @32 mins ‘canary’ the yellow bird is named after the canary islands where they were first found. The canary islands are named after the feral dogs (canines) living on the island that the natives worshipped. Canary and canine have the same root   @39 mins https://teamtrees.org/
I sit down in the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove with program director, Carrie Barron, to briefly discuss bird conservation. One solution was counterintuitive to me. Carrie explains that to save the native birds, we should plant native plants. Plant the tree->to bring the insect->to bring the bird that likes the insects.
an eponym is a word named after someone.  all body parts that have eponym are named after dudes. not cool. girls have bodies too, yo.
usually greeks and romans named the body off of what they saw. more often than not, they named the body after titties 
me n some friends read a book called lying by sam harris. we talk about it. the main idea is dont lie. ever. we question whether er not thats the right way to think about it.  either way we could all afford being more honest link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds3xR-NjrNE   heres the baby laughing while getting shots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOOxpT9q2mo   heres the book app that doesnt suck: https://www.hoopladigital.com/
