Episode 58 | The Lighter Side of Dark
00:00:00 - Patrick and Charlie provide a weather report that has influenced their choice of beverage. Ryan makes a pilgrimage and returns with goodies for all! (Really only for him, selfish jerk.)
00:05:53 – According to Charlie, an economy magazine had an article about rats putting on weight based on light and dark cycles. Does it make sense? Patrick says yes! Is it interesting? You decide!
00:15:18 – Trailer Trash Talk runs a bit long this week, about 127 Hours too long. Just kidding! That's the name of the movie!
00:25:17 – Stephen has a question about time travel (or is it space travel?) so the guys bring in the big ben gun to help clear things up (as though things are ever any clearer after talking to a physicist).
00:44:50 – Patrick and Ryan are back from Pittsburgh where they attended the 70thannual meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. The guys give the highlights and talk a bit about whether or not we're in a 6th great mass extinction. Tune in to find out the answer!
01:01:18 – In the PaleoPOW this week Curtis is running away with us on iTunes and Patrick (no, a different Patrick) is about to learn the joys of time-shifted media.

The Church – John Murphy (from the 28 Days Later Soundtrack)
