00:00:00 – Whether they formed via troll warfare or via geology, all we know now is that Iceland is covered in lava tubes. A possible explanation for their enigmatic origin is tonight’s first topic!
00:18:47 – We presume that trolls like to drink, so in some ways this segment is for them. But it’s also for you, the listener. And us. Definitely for us. Ryan continues his tour of Panamanian beers with a Soberana, which has nothing to do with sobreity nor frogs. Charlie enjoys some silky smooth Scotch and Abe keeps things thematic with a Hop Lava imperial IPA.
00:41:10 – A coral reef has been found thriving in an acidified section of ocean. Does this mean all that worry over climate change was for naught? NAY! The Paleopals are here to set the record straight and explain what this seeming conundrum actually says about our ever-changing globe.
00:51:19 – PaleoPOWs are a lot like acid, too much and they burn, but just enough and they give you a pleasant sourness. Charlie begins with an e-mail from Andrew H. about a new planet that shakes up some of the ways we thought planets formed. Ryan thanks Brandon W. for a donation. Thanks, Brandon! And Abe, whom you can now follow Twitter, reads an iTunes review from Whip Hubley.
