The Greatest Discovery Ep 40: Butt-Dial Georgiou (S2E5)

| 0 comments

When Tilly is sucked into the upside down, it's time for Burnham and the crew to take a nosedive. But when Section 31 shows up in ultra-fashionable outfits, our team must steady the ship and reexamine relationships. Will Culber grow the beard—again? Is Tilly pinky promising her way out of things? Should Ben and Adam quit the podcast and become true crime reporters?

It's the episode that leaves the pizza in the oven just a minute longer than needed.

Hello babies!

Happy President's Day to all you presidents out there except for the bad ones! On this episode, Emily shares her experience being sick and diving into the shows Instant Hotel and Outlander.  Lisa gets an allergy test at a DIY blood testing facility. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Learned pig," a pig taught to respond to commands in such a way that it appeared to be able to answer questions by picking up cards in its mouth.

Is Paula’s trainer really doing what’s best for her, or does he just get better cell reception on the gym floor? Kelly Dormandy, head strength and conditioning coach for the LA Sparks, explains peak fitness without breaking a sweat. Then - why can’t Paula and Adam recognize each other? USC’s Dr. Irving Biederman walks us through the science of facial recognition, and why some of us suck at it. Also, Paula and Adam discuss which was less pleasant - the Polar Vortex in the Midwest or the possum in our faces on Miranda Street.

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 249: O’Brien Fingers Bashir (DS9 S3E26)

| 0 comments

When the Little D is deployed to the frontier of the federation, nobody is initially suspicious that Jake Sisko seems to now be a Starlfleet Admiral. But when aliens we’ve never heard of threaten war with the Federation, it’s the diplomats you really have to be worried about. Is the Defiant on its way to Vertiform City? Why does Eddington want to kill the Doctor? What kind of predicament would make you wish you’d become a barber? It’s the episode that finally hits the Jeffries tubes from the right angle.
