episode 237: Nutty Narrows Bridge

Hello babies! It's a big day in Baby Geniuses history. This will be the episode you will all remember as "the one where Emily releases the sauce info." On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Nutty Narrows Bridge, a bridge for squirrels and the world's narrowest animal crossing (citation needed).



episode 236: Computer Rage

Welcome to Baby Geniuses! Or Hello Babies! Or however this usually goes! We start the show off by reading some letters sent in by listeners just like you. We also give a quick update on our hot sauce saga - a listener followed the clues and identified the sauce! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Computer Rage," and I silently but spiritedly nod in agreement in as Lisa complains about her Macbook's touch bar.



episode 235: Fascinus

Hello babies!
The last time we recorded was before the Georgia runoff elections, so we have some stuff to talk about. For example, we find out what Joey has been up to. On this episode, Emily considers sending an email about hot sauce. On Chunch Chat, we discuss whether Martha needs to read the room or not. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Fascinus,” the embodiment of the divine phallus. This one requires an image search.

On a very special double Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia pages "Jimmy Carter Rabbit Incident" as well as "Puzzle Jug." They aren't related at all, we just liked them both!

episode 231: Worm Charming

Hello babies! Happy Thanksgiving! We can't wait to see our friends and family this week - Daphne, Marty, Eddie, Frasier, Niles, the whole Crane gang. We are also looking forward to seeing our actual relatives over Zoom, because it's a pandemic and we're not traveling! On today's ep, we read the Wikipedia page for Worm Charming (also known as worm grunting or worm fiddling), methods of attracting worms from the ground. Gotta get them out of the earth somehow!
