Episode 121 - Diamonds are for Feather

Science... sort of will return...
Science... sort of will return...

00:00:00 - Are you dying to know how diamonds make it to Earth's surface? Well the answer just might kill you. Abraham Padilla joins the Paleopals once more to talk about gas-powered kimberlite super-volcanoes on steroids. BOOM!

00:22:20 - Beer is also gas powered... sort of. Charlie has a beer of a different sort with his Bundaberg ginger beer from the land down under. Ben is stocked up on weird pop and this week choses to enjoy a Blue Sky Cherry Vanilla Cream Natural Soda. The name is as long as the taste is good. And finally, Abe has brought Ryan some hard to pronounce Icelandic beer: Kaldi Dökkur Lager Bjór and Skjalfti (photo of Ryan podcasting at the link!).

00:28:15 -Movies often show you an occurrence of events in a temporal sequence, but few are as on the nose about it as the upcoming found footage superpower flick Chronicle.

00:37:11 - Thanks to science, we now have a better idea of what color Archaeopteryx might have been. This also sheds light on it's abilities as a flyer. Ben gets distracted by other fossils while Ryan tries to explain what another paleontologist named Ryan has found out.

00:51:36 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like feathers, they can keep you aloft when you need it most. Charlie has a two tweets from prodigal listeners, @YPGeek and @clarkraykent. Thanks for coming back guys! Ryan has the greatest gift of all in the form of a handsome donation from handsome Nick W. left at our handsome donation page. Thanks, Nick! And finally Ben pleas for more Canadian iTunes feedback, but follows it up with a fantastic rendition of an Aussie iTunes review from Martin B.
