Episode 418: The Original Series

This episode contains: Why is Ben under the weather? Why does Devon think he can play full court basketball? Why doesn’t Steven talk about his vacation?


Wheels Driving Around My Brain, Driving Me Insane: Bridgestone has put more than $100M into eco-tires made of shrubs. Guayule (Parthenium argentatum) is better than typical petroleum-based rubber. We’re super excited about this, because no matter what powers your car, it’s gotta have wheels.


It wasn’t me!: Stone age surgery: Earliest evidence of amputation found. There was a successful leg amputation 31,000 years ago. Oh, and Australian scientists like to pull pranks, apparently.


Science Fiction: Steven breaks down the first episode of the sixth season of Rick and Morty. Ben tells us all about the 856th episode of Star Trek, which is an episode of Lower Decks. Devon takes a deep, deep breath and talks about his re-watch of Star Trek The Original Series. Oh man, is he excited about it. We even plan a bonus episode.
