  • The “fingers” article is interesting, but it’s always a little annoying to see everyday media outlets trying to report on science. There was some potentially misleading/wrong language in there about fingers going “extinct” and evolution occurring “in the embryo”. Anyway, still really cool stuff to know!

    And as I mentioned on The Facebook, the movie looks funny but the teaser just barely lets on that it’s about birding. Maybe a good way to get everyone to go in and see it c:

    I hope my first frigatebird is magical! Or at least magnificent.

    One small technical note, the last two podcasts have had a few audio problems, there was a bit of crackling and maxed volume type noises during particularly loud laughter/talking. Since I know you don’t listen to your podcast after it’s recorded and I’ve never had this problem before with your podcast.
