Episode notes

Happy MaxFun Block Party, babies! And a special welcome to all the new babies out there! This episode is made with the new listener in mind. If you’re a long time listener, don’t fret! There will be plenty for you to enjoy. On Wiki of the Week, we read the most requested Wikipedia page that we’ve already read. “Le Pétomane was a French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer. He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seemingly fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, “to fart” with the -mane, “-maniac” suffix, which translates to “fartomaniac”. The profession is referred to as “flatulist”, “farteur”, or “fartiste”.
