Episode #02: Ice Age


Have you ever wondered how accurate the Ice Age movies are? Did these animals really migrate so far and were that diverse? Did the sabre-tooth squirrel exist and what exactly is “Taekwondodo”?

In the later part of the episode, we talk to amber and arthropod expert, Zsófi Hajdu, who is now a dinosaur fossil preparator at the Senckenberg-Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. Turns out knowing and talking about Jurassic Park is one of her main tasks at the museum, where she gets asks about the film by the young and the not-so-young visitors. Credit: Intro Music from
