Episode 25: The Phantom (Torso) Menace

Episode Notes

We’ve got our scientist back! Briefly!

Dr. Phil La Porta swings back in to help Jill and Shaun understand some of biggest and most controversial science stories in the news. And, of course, things veer off course early, often, and with much hilarity. We’ve got space mutations, ethical quandaries, and crash-test corpses IN SPACE!

But first, a light appetizer of scandal news, Jill’s Here’s the Thing is all about identity and unisex clothes choices, and Shaun worries about a certain Canadian psychologist teetering on the edge of Messianic status. PLUS! Contests abound—listen in for your chance to win in not one but TWO amazing giveaways!

Generosity abounds on the only podcast worth trusting: THE WHIPAROUND!
