This is one of the more unique episodes we've done so far, on an animal that many people haven't even ever heard of. Or maybe that's just Mike. Wes shares a bunch of different cassowary attack stories, Jeff poses a really good and related (?) question, and the crew learns all kinds of cool things about cassowaries as well as introduces a few new wrinkles to the regular episode formula.
Thanks for listening! We hope you enjoy the episode.

Today we go over the story of Cynthia Dusel-Bacon, who spent her summers working in the wilds of Alaska taking geological samples. But on one fateful day in 1977, she was the one that was sampled; by a relatively small but still insanely powerful black Bear that had decided it wanted to make a meal of her. If you weren’t aware, Wes loves bears, so he spends most of the episode explaining why the attack happened and how black Bear attacks are so rare considering how many of them there are. Also Jeff tries (and fails) to pronounce some of your names and we finally get Mike to admit which cartoon bears he loves the most.

On this episode, Wes gathered up a bunch of notable animal attacks that hit the news over the past month and discusses them with Jeff and Mike. Afterwards, the crew talks about the Animals vs. Humans poll that's been making the rounds online recently, and it goes off the rails pretty quickly.
Thanks for listening, we hope you enjoy the show!

On this episode, we are joined by the one and only Cindy Larson, the greatest biological mother Jeff and Wes have ever had. Wes prepared two stories of incredible motherly strength and instinct, and delves into a little bit of the science behind the "mother bear" behavior seen not only from animals, but humans too. Happy Mother's Day everyone!
