OMG!! im 12 years old and love this podcast. keep us updated on the baby! also, did you know that cats are thought to have a sixth sense, used to sense mates in the air? This is the reaction you see when a cat "grimaces"

also, im a wiccan. That is a nature based religion, would you please do an episode on the history of witchcraft, from the witch steryotype and its origon? Witches in movies? that would be soo cool, and with the four of you, a facinating episode. Keep up the good work

awsome and amazing audio asking and articulating alternate answers

Any idea why the Harry's coupon code "brain" isn't working?

May 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAnon

Anon- looking into it right now!

Don't suppose you guys have the links or something to those awesome "lullaby" versions of rock songs?

Anon - Are you a new user? We double-checked with Harry's and the code does work. Let us know if it's still not working.

First of all, Congrats to Chris.
I wanted to include a baby animal name for you. The young of the echidna and platypus are called a puggle. Cute name and if you find a pic you'll see it's appropriate.
Keep up the good work,

I am a 2nd generation chimney sweep in Michigan, and often listen to your podcast while driving. In early America they would use farm ducks to clean chimneys instead of children. They would tie a rope around their feet and lower them down. As they flailed around it would knock the soot out of they flue. In tribute to these brave birds, I named my company black duck chimney. Thanks for the chimney sweep trivia and keep up the good work.
