Baby Geniuses

Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don't know stuff, but would like to. Every week, comedian and super-genius Emily Heller and cartoonist and mastermind Lisa Hanawalt, challenge their guests to share some knowledge on any topic they want.

Hello babies!

We've been very busy lately so we're finally catching up on all the good things we missed last year. Why didn't anyone tell Emily to watch Get Out sooner? On this episode, we let the toucan out of the bag! Lisa is creating a new show for Netflix! Tuca & Bertie stars some of the characters she's been doodling while recording Baby Geniuses. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Flatulence Humor." Humans have been laughing at our own farts for millennia. Sorry mom, it's not a "phase" I'll "grow out of."

Hello babies!

If a baby Bojack appeared on your porch, would you take care of it? Someone made an eerily realistic Bojack doll and sold it on Etsy. We'd like for whoever bought it to come forward. Emily recorded her live album in Portland recently, she would like to say thank you to the lovely person who sent her a whole cheese pizza. On Wiki of the Week, we read the extremely on brand Wikipedia page for Each-uisge, a mythical water horse.

Hello, babies!
We hope you enjoyed the Big Game! We spent Sunday cheering for 2018 all star Phil Rosenthal. We skipped the puppy bowl and revisited that show about hypothetical bizarre animal fights. Also on this episode: a couple is inspired by our witch tattoo conversation and gets matching butt tatts! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Clamato."

Hello geniuses!

I mean, hello babies! Both come off kinda condescending, right? We don’t really mean to be. In this episode, Emily considers marrying Lisa’s dog. Lisa has conflicting emotions regarding the hypothetical ceremony. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “List of Gestures,” which is awfully comprehensive.

Hello babies! 

Emily didn't get a lot of sleep last night because her neighbors fighting, so please ignore all the cold brew slurping sounds. She's hot off the heels of throwing a successful retirement party for all men. We'll explain what that is. Lisa reads a book about a sexy merman and discovers that's not really her thing. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Catalan mythology about witches." It gave us some fun tattoo ideas!

Hello babies!

Portland, OR based babies: Come to Emily's album recording on January 20th at the Curious Comedy Theater!

Non Portland based babies: Portland is very beautiful in late January, consider visiting?

Happy new year! Maybe things will get better this year, maybe not? We will be here to scream into our hands with you either way. On Chunch Chat, Martha shows off a coyote eating donkey. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Death during consensual sex." I learned the word defenestration!

Hello babies!

We're trying something new today- a 100% Emily and Lisa episode! Emily saw the new film I, Tonya, and tells us about it. On Chunch Chat, Fernando helps Martha Stewart hang her Kugels. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Vegetable Lamb of Tartary, a legendary zoophyte of Central Asia, once believed to grow sheep as its fruit.

Hello babies!

Quick question - if we’re not supposed to pick our noses, why are our fingers *exactly* the right size to get up in there? What habits are you trying to break? On today’s episode, Emily goes to West Virginia and visits a secret government bunker. Lisa tells us about your butts. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “The Most Unwanted Song,” a novelty song designed to incorporate musical and lyrical elements annoying to most people. Everyone agrees it is much better than the song’s counterpart, The Most Wanted Song. We welcome actor/comedian/SNL alum Sasheer Zamata, who turned 21 while working at Disneyworld.  On Expert Hour, we are joined by a small unnamed child who will share some animal facts.

Hello babies!

Have you seen long bear? The legs are quite long. Get one for a significant other before they sell out! On today’s episode, Lisa discovers a new slime teen and one of Emily’s favorite ASMR artists returns. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Agnodice,” supposedly the first female midwife or physician in ancient Athens. We welcome TV writer Chris Marcil, who has brought in some of his favorite out of print books to show off. On Expert Hour, we are joined by commercial airline pilot and weatherperson Dumb Johnson.

Hello babies!

Hope you’re having a very spooktacular season! Lisa had a creepy experience recently, but not the fun kind of creepy. Emily preps her Halloween costume. If you’re a long time fan of the show, you’ll recognize it immediately! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics – Men's marathon.” We welcome comedian/actor/writer John Early, who has some thoughts about the 2015 Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash. On Expert Hour, we are joined by St. Louis native Mary Merry, who is excited to share her original Super Bowl party appetizer recipes. Quite timely!
