Try not to fall in.
Try not to fall in.

00:00:00 – The Paleopals are already giggly at the onset of the show, mostly because Ben is drinking something ridiculous, but also because the theme this week is HOLES! What will they come up with next?

00:08:19 – The Large Hadron Collider has created the world's smallest big bang. It sounds contradictory, but it's particle physics, who honestly gets this stuff? Charlie and Ben do! But they're not writing the show note, are they? No, they're not.

00:22:25 – What is a cave if not a big hole? A big 3D hole! Executive producer James Cameron brings you the drama of cave research in 3D with his upcoming opus Sanctum in this week's Trailer Trash Talk.

00:33:56 – Ryan's mom wants us to talk about blue hole exploration. It's like Trailer Trash Talk come to life! Now if only she'd let him go SCUBA diving in caves his life would be complete. Complete cause he'd almost certainly die. Remember kids: Science can be dangerous as well as awesome.

00:48:03 – PaleoPOW has been on fire of late. More content than you can shake a stick at! Ben has an iTunes review from the UK. Ryan blogged about Goodreads and Elina responded. Patrick brings iTunes home with a review from the good ole USA! And Charlie gets his from Jon Lopez, of The Nerd List, on Facebook.
