I love talking to people with PhDs. To me someone with a PhD is not that far removed from say and artist, musician or writer. They have chosen to explore a topic in-depth and become the leading authority in the world on that subject. So join me as we Pile it high and Deep with doctorates from around around the world as we explore their journey's their research and what they have done with all that knowledge they shoved into their brains.

The dorks slog through…I mean take on a Mythic Conscription for Fallen Empires! This is a set that is notorious for its lack of…well, much of anything. As a result, we’ll be looking at the entire set rather than just the “rares” and talking about a lot of tangentially related stuff! After that it’s time to have some fun with another listener-su ...…
 
We're revisiting an episode from 2014: the Filles du Roi, or King's Daughters.

So we're a day late and short some vocals today, because Shawn's internet decided to crap out for 40-odd hours.

As it is today, so too was it when this classic episode was recorded, ...…

The Straw Hat Riot of 1922 is a strange piece of history, and it all centered around the boater hat. How did how the boater become so important to men’s fashion in the early 20th century?

It’s no secret we love paleontology; it’s a fascinating field of study. But sometimes our favorite subject is polluted and perverted by fraud. In this episode, we’re talking about fake fossils: why they happen, how they happen, and what effect they have on the paleontological community as a whole. And then it’s story time, where we review some ...…
