No ifs, ands or nuts.

No ifs, ands or nuts.

This week on the podcast... 00:00:00 - Kevin "The Numero" Uno joins the Paleopals to discuss his new paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences all about "Nutcracker Man" not doing what his name would imply.

00:19:42 - What are we drinking? Kevin paradoxically says that i's the water (not the grains), Charlie ponders new bottle shapes for and older brewery, Patrick experiments with pale ales and Ryan has a  Hibiki Birthday drink on the rocks thanks to a few fine ladies.

00:26:17 - Trailer Trash Talk gets historical this week as the Paleopals plus Kevin discuss the trailer for the upcoming documentary Project Nim, which tells the story of ape raising experimentation in the 70's. Yes, it's as messed up as it sounds.

00:38:58 - More science coming from hominid tooth isotopes as a new study from Nature suggests that Cavemen stayed put while Cavewomen searched for greener pastures. Kevin sticks around to help explain.

00:50:56 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like cavemen, rare and poorly understood. This week Charlie has some 5-star iTunes criticism from retroflatus. Patrick explains the new way you can donate suggested by Brendan and endorsed (via participation) by Buddy. Thanks boys! And finally, Ryan has a Fayetteville-based venue suggestion from former native Sean P.
