He's just trying to suck goats as well as his father.

00:00:00 - Illustrator David Peters thinks a tiny pterosaur was a vampiric leach of larger sauropods. Does paleontologist Chris Bennett agree? Should we ignore evidence so we can live in a world with blood sucking pterosaurs? These are the important questions of our time, people. 00:23:28 - Some drinks that aren't blood include: a Kona koko brown as enjoyed by Charlie, water from a mug via Ben, Newman's own wine as imbibed by Kelly, and the classic beer and a shot combo Canadian style consumed by Ryan.

00:28:13 - Este semana en Trailer Trash Talk, actor Will Ferrell es en una película nueva, llama Casa de Mi Padre, sobre drugas en Mexico. Todas las personas le gusta?

00:43:01 - Everybody knows lizards love to leap. Now biomechanical scientists from Robert Full's lab have tested just how their tails help them leap so well, by building robots. And of course, they had to test their findings against Jurassic Park. Did the movie get it right? Listen and find out!

00:55:58 - PalePOWs are a lot like pterosaurs, difficult to reconstruct. Ryan begins with a bit of cash from Kyle H., who apparently felt bad after hurting our feelings in episode 123. Thanks, Kyle! Ben comes through with yet another new Canadian iTunes review! Charlie gets corrected on his French wine translation, Ben attempts to comfort him with the intricacies of accent marks. And Kelly hears from Alesa M. about her luck of the Jurassic and subsequent attempts to find a VHS player (a.k.a. a VCR).
