This week on the podcast... 00:00:00 - This week the Paleopals are feeling Cuckoo for SCIENCE! Literally. Part of their parasitic ponderings are due to the newest Paleopal Kelly Weinersmith! Everyone say hi! Once she's properly introduced the discussion covers cuckoo basics, cuckoo benefits, cuckoo mafias, and sneaky host evolution.

Be sure to go watch the video that broke our hearts here.

00:30:24 - Kelly is exposing her mafia ties with some Payback, Ryan is feeling foolish, Patrick has a "really unique" wine and Charlie is hiding in plain site.

00:39:59 - Trailer Trash Talk goes on the prowl for myths and definitions as the Paleopals break down Troll Hunter.

00: 53:28 - The noob volunteers to go first with an iTunes review from LW whom Ryan assumes is a Munchkin. Ryan has donation and beer rec from Bec B. in Aus. Thanks, Bec! Charlie has website comments left by Stephen from NC regarding post-rock and creationism, seemingly unconnected, but life's funny like that. Be sure to check out Stephen's band The Farewell Monument. And finally Patrick has an e-mail from Ryan T. about how Idaho listeners may have been hiding from our stats.

Thanks for listening! We have a blog that's been showing signs of life called the Paleocave. Check that out if you need more.
