Episode 223: Not A Potter Podcast

This episode contains: Devon has a cold, but he still makes it onto the podcast, for YOU. Steven makes rude comments about the gigantic size of Devon’s son.

Math Kings: Using touch computers, scientists found out that Asian Elephants can distinguish amounts of fruit. They can distinguish amount regardless of the sizes and amounts of fruits shown and take longer to ‘think’ when there are large numbers involved.

Jurassic Park Music: Steven claims that the Jurassic Park Gameboy Game has the best music of any video game. Ever. Listen in to hear some of it.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Devon finally saw Ant-Man and The Wasp. We re-review it. The lazy science writing really got to us, so we complain loudly about it.

Harry Potter: Steven wants a Netflix animated Harry Potter series. Devon disagrees (even though he watches tons of adult cartoons). We also talk about the alcoholic content of butterbeer.
