In This Week’s Show, episode 238, Shea and I do a story, intro a story, and apologize for Jenn and Steve skipping out on the show, because they hate you.
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while something struck half of us down we are not out!
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that masturbation is necrophilia if you’re dead inside.
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Everyone actually has 3 voices, the one in your head, the one others hear when you talk and the one the one we sweaten in post-production to stop your ears bleeding.
But before we get to all that, let’s have a few beers because the adults left us unattended!

This Week’s Show
Round Table Discussion
New Patron: Locusts with Pitchforks and Glowsticks
Always listen to you when doing outside chores, makes the time seem short and the work easier. As an atheist and home brewer this is my kind of show. I believe Jenn is from the ‘boro. Want a local beer?

We have kind of a collection of messages so…
Speaking of nursing, if we have any listeners who are in a medical field internationally or who have done international work, shoot me an email!
After getting permission from London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, baby trump took to the air for the great Cheeto’s visit. Unfortunately on day two of his visit a woman recorded herself popping one of the giant orange balloons while saying,
“Did it! That’s a disgrace! It’s a national disgrace! The President of the United States is the best president ever.”
A spokesperson for Scotland Yard told the newspaper “one female has been arrested for being in possession of a pointed or bladed article.”
It’s an Evergreen kinda show!
Hey all, we’ve got a little discombobulated this week so Shea and I will fall back on the old format for some headlines and a couple of stories. And we’ll do a lil’funny and an extra beer, then we’ll dive into some recorded, but never aired, stuff that I think you’re really going to enjoy.
HL1 – Fire Snakes
Snakes on a Flame
Originally recorded last week for 238.
In a story that will keep Aaron up all night, Arizona firefighters were called to put out a house fire when they were greeted by hundreds of snakes upon entry. Phoenix Fire Capt. Greg Hawk said firefighters were bit with the element of surprise when they responded to a house fire this past Thursday.
“It was honestly like a movie,” Hawk said. “It really hit us that, you know, we were walking around with snakes and lizards and everything else.”
You’ll be happy to hear, that because so many reptiles were in the home, it changed how firefighters fought the blaze. Rather than fighting it from the outside, they took the riskier approach and battled it from inside to save as many reptiles as they could.
“There were literally firefighters that were fighting fire, squirting water on the fire, and guys next to them picking up snakes and putting them in buckets,” Hawk said. “We just knew that we had to do what we could to protect the animals and get the fire out.”
It’s the kind of call Hawk said will leave a memorable mark.
“I mean, we see crazy stuff, and this was outside-of-the-box crazy for us,” he said. “We were looking at each other and going, ‘This is crazy!’”
The Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary is now caring for the reptiles that survived the fire. None of the snakes were venomous.
Along with the reptiles, firefighters rescued a couple of dogs and cats.
HL2 – Mr. Jenn’s ears
Not a news story of course, just a story Jenn told a few weeks back.
HL3- Helicopter Momkeys
In today’s age hearing about pushy parents and helicopter mothers is no new thing. It seems the rise of overprotective parenting, anti vaxxers, flat earthers, and all other crazy new wave purple raising fuckers has began to rub off on some of our closest primate relatives.
In a new by German primatologists have discovered high-ranking bonobo mothers lead sons to groups of females and keep guard while they mate. Yes you heard that right, momkeys are setting their sons up with classy monkeys and following them all through the dating process until mom can be sure she is getting grandmonkeys.
Bonobo society is dominated by females, so mothers of high rank are able to go to great lengths to ensure that they become grandmothers. They chaperone their sons when they are meeting females. During the act itself, they act as bodyguards and ensure that the mating couple is not disturbed by other males who might charge their sons. The mothers are also willing to get physical in order to provide more opportunities for their offspring. They will charge at other males who are trying to woo fertile females. In rare instances, researchers reported that the high-ranking females literally dragged unrelated male bonobos off their sexual partners.
To assess the impact of mothers’ interventions, primatologists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology observed several wild bonobo populations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, Uganda and Ivory Coast. Mothers from both species, which share the title of our closest living relative, helped their sons in fights, but only the bonobos boosted their sons’ mating success. In chimpanzee society, males are dominant, so the mothers have less influence.
While bonobo mothers looked out for their sons, the researchers found no evidence they helped their daughters in the mating game or in raising their offspring. But unlike the males, who hang around, the females usually leave the group to have their own families elsewhere.

Faith In Humanity Restored
This show is typically a circus but one where the animals are treated like people and they let me drink beer. Other circuses around the world are not as kind to their animals and in response they are losing popularity fast. People no longer want to pay to see tortured, caged animals perform.
A circus in Germany is aiming to bring back the thrill and excitement of the big top but with a high tech change. Circus Roncalli, is the first circus in the world to replace animals with realistic holograms. The animations made by computer are projected to real size and shown in a spectacular way. Animals such as elephants, wild horses, monkeys and even fish run, swim and do acrobatics on stage. The circus has existed for many decades, but recently they decided to replace the animals with 11 projectors, lasers and lenses strategically placed to offer the show without even a single animal being involved. Thanks to technology, many animals get rid of being locked up living in captivity, while humans can enjoy their virtual presence in this incredible way. No word on how they treat their human performers but I hope they arn’t the new tenants of the cages. Check out show nots for some awesome pics from the circus.
