Superman fights Lion!

Superman fights Lion!

This week is a big one.

Per usual the guys are drinking, but Justin is a bit under the weather so we bring in guest drinker and discussionist Charlie (as seen heard previously in episode 6).

First up, Justin has a paper coming out about man-eating lions that will cooperate to kill you. He expounds, the guys question him about his super sexy findings and media embargoes become a thing of the past.

Read the Patterson book that started it all The Man-Eaters Of Tsavo or watch the movie The Ghost and the Darkness.

Next the Paleopals watch a trailer for The Box and get into a heavy discussion about the value of human life. They even plug a competitor's podcast, RadioLab, which is linked to because they are honest to a fault. Also, they want you to cast your vote on how you'd deal with THE BOX!

Finally, Superman is up for debate (again) but this time with surprise expert witness testimony from Ben Tippett, author of a paper explaining the grand unified theory of Kal-El's powers. Fun Fact: Ben is the first Canadian to appear on the show.
