00:00:00 - Dr. John Pohl MD joins Kelly and Ryan to talk about his work as a pediatric gastroenterologist. Ever think that kids and adults have the same sort of digestive problems? Well you were wrong! John explains some of the key differences, but he's much nicer than my exclamation point would suggest.

00:30:00 - Having drunk with Ryan before, John is no stranger to our drinking segment. He's keeping it local with a Belgian-style white ale with orange peel from Wasatch Brewery. Ryan, in honor of John's home state, has a FULL STRENGTH (it's a big deal in Utah) Black Imperial IPA from Moab Brewery. Kelly has water. Kelly is responsible. Let us all be more like Kelly in the future. Stay hydrated, kids!

00:37:07 - Next John tells us about his research about how your pancreas could try to kill you. Sounds important. And he helped put together a book on his field of pediatric gastroenterology. Sounds prestigious. We end with John telling us a bit about how he came to be both a man of science and a man of faith. Sounds deep. Be sure to follow John on both Twitter and Tumblr!

01:09:42 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like pancreases; few people are sure why they're there, and hopefully they never turn against you. Kelly has a donation from Jeff M., who wants us to buy a 6-pack of beer. We usually don't use donations for booze, but if you insist... Thanks, Jeff! Ryan reads an e-mail from Heather E., who listens to all the Bracula (her plural for Brachiolope, which we kind of love) on Stitcher and loves them but her husband thinks it's weird when Ryan and Ben talk for an hour about penises. Different strokes, I suppose.

Thanks for listening and be sure to check out the Brachiolope Media Network for more great science podcasts!
