1: Time Illusions, Electric Bees, and Fakespeares
Play • 1 hr 19 min

What does a time illusion look like? Why are bees electrically charged? Who is the real Shakespeare?

We also cover: Yanney and Laurel, bad science magic tricks, Carly Rae Jepsen's seminal hit Call Me Maybe, Temporal Odor Mixtures, how many bees are in a bolt of lightning, The Flower Dome, fake flowers and fake bees, the flat moon theory, and the Voldemort Codex.
