Episode 81 - Mad Men
This week on the podcast... 00:00:00 - Your logo may say more about you than you'd like, so spring for the nicer shirt, because sometimes you just can't fight evolution as a new study shows that name brand can make the difference.
00:12:18 - What are we drinking? Charlie talks labels and a different kind of taste. Ben goes back to a brand he trusts. And Ryan tries to stick with the theme with a very convoluted connection.
00:17:41 - Trailer Trash Talk gets both high and deep as the Paleopals break down the trailer for Werner Herzog's new 3D documentary The Cave of Forgotten Dreams
- Special thanks to Andrew Mayne, of the Weird Things Podcast, for his help figuring out the dark details of Chauvet Cave!
- Also, special thanks to Ryan for thinking so hard about Centaurs all of the time.
00:33:08 - Science... sort of gets topical with a story about how language affects culture, politics and so much more when a video from RSA about linguistics gets the Paleopals thinking about current events in the Arab world.
00:49:52 - Paleopows are like uprisings, they show up when you least expect it and make you feel much less powerful. But this week we have a few doozies. First off, Ricky sends us a cryptic donation which helps explain last week's sign off. Then Ryan has some followup from the NCAA tournament via Sam A. And finally, Charlie has e-mail from a young whipper-snapper Doug who has been thinking long and hard about dark matter.
Thanks for listening, we have a blog, sometimes we even us it. It's called The Paleocave.
