Baby Geniuses

Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don't know stuff, but would like to. Every other 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!

What have you been putting off in order to get your life in order? What is one quick thing you can do to organize your living space? When was the last time you thought of the film Magic Mike? On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Roar (1981 film)." You'll laugh your head off (or at least part of it!)

Lek Mating

Hello babies!

This is the first episode we've recorded since Tuca and Bertie dropped! We address a legitimate concern regarding the show. There's another new pup in the Baby Geniuses family - Lisa got a new dog! Her name is Annie and she is a very sweet heeler mix. I am personally quite excited for Annie to meet Emily's new dog, Alan. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Lek mating, "an aggregation of male animals gathered to engage in competitive displays, lekking, to entice visiting females which are surveying prospective partners for copulation." Sound familiar, ladies?

Hello babies!

We hope you're enjoying Lisa's new show Tuca & Bertie, available now on Netflix! If you're a regular Baby Geniuses listener it would be foolish for you to not be at least six episodes in. Download the Netflix app and stream it at work and get caught up! On this week's episode, Lisa returns from a trip to Hong Kong and Emily does separation anxiety training with her new dog Alan. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for John Titor, a time traveling message board poster.

Hello babies!

This is the last episode we will release before Lisa's new show Tuca & Bertie comes out on Netflix later this week! Hey, and when you watch it, don't tell us if you hate it! We don't want to know (not that there will be a chance you won't like it, as it is a perfect piece of entertainment). On today's episode, we plan a future segment based on Emily's new dog Alan. Suggestions for titles are appreciated! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Seedfeeder, an illustrator known for contributing sexually explicit drawings to Wikipedia.

Hello Babies!

Emily got a dog! His name is Alan and looks like a grumpy old man found himself in a "The Fly" type teleporter mishap situation and was mixed with an otter and maybe also a dog. Hey grumpy old dude- I hope you like pooping outside! On Chunch Chat, Lisa's horse Juniper is testing her boundaries. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Planetary mnemonic." If you need help remembering the planets in our solar system, this is the podcast for you!

Hello adults!

Welcome to a very special episode of Adult Idiots! 

Just kidding! We like to have a little April Fool's Day fun over here. Of course this is your favorite show Baby Geniuses. On this episode, we recap our favorite April Fool's pranks of yesteryear. Emily meets a hero of hers and Lisa tries to take a sexy selfie. 

On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Sheela na gig," figurative carvings of naked women displaying an exaggerated vulva. They are architectural grotesques found all over Europe on cathedrals, castles, and other buildings.

Hello babies!

Lisa is catching up with some of Emily's tv recommendations. Have you watched Outlander or Instant Hotel? Emily wins a WGA award and gives us the 411 on a Hollywood male celebrity hot spot. On Chunch Chat, we learn about Martha Stewart's new business venture. We discuss whether or not getting a horse high is wrong. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for Miss Baker, a squirrel monkey astronaut/overachiever.

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.

Hello babies!

Thanks to Party of One music for putting their spin on our theme song! If you turn this episode on and feel like you've been transported to a different, much more adorable universe, don't worry! Same crappy universe. On this week's episode, Emily dives into the show Suits in an attempt to figure out "what Meghan Markle's deal is." We also answer some month old reader mail. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Wizard of New Zealand," a decidedly non-magical person.
