186: Eggsellent


We crack open the trivia-filled world of EGGS! Which end of the egg comes out of a chicken first? Chris fluffs it up with the science and how-to behind perfect scrambled eggs. (And we have a micro interview with a very special guest who has very strong opinions on this particular dish.) And of course, how can we do an episode on eggs without sharing another weird animal reproduction story? This time: the mating horror of the anglerfish. Dana has prepped an egg salad of a quiz for us while Colin serves up a protein-filled egg word quiz. And what exactly are Faberge Eggs, and what makes them so insanely expensive?

ALSO: US hiking facts, Tanked

Been a couple of months (my last download was August 15 - the golden touch - which isn't listed here that I could find).

I know you're busy with book stuff, but other than that I hope everything is ok. 2 months is a long time.

Welcome back (listening to under the sea). 're: books with spines in vs out at the store. As the author you could offer to sign the book(s) they have. They may feature it as a special copy. Usually it is based on how many books they have. Have 4, likely more space economical to front face. One book only, spine out saves space.
