The three cephalo-podcasters do a deep dive into the phenomenon that octopuses (not octopi) use tools. The eight legged wonders don't just accurately predict international soccer matches, they also collect coconut shells to hide in. Raj thinks the octopus's limitless potential makes them the modern white Americans of the sea. Jono finds similarities with the T-1000 terminator, and Joe explains why octopuses better have a good 2-year plan. (also available on iTunes).
