Episode 130: In Plain Sight

Update: 2019-11-2560


Before cell phones and internet access, learning about the world around us took a lot of time. Along the way, there would be gaps in our knowledge—holes that human cultures tended to fill with folklore. And while the creatures they invented to fill those gaps were amazing, it’s how close they often got to reality that makes those stories truly frightening.

The male platypus does have venomous spurs. Not sure if they can kill a dog, but it's incredibly painful for humans and can debilitate you for months

Well, at least it wasn't yet another story about colonialism. Boy was that ridiculous subject worn out.
