Seriously, a show about animals. Which, of course would be interesting to a large majority of people given the fact we have an entire television networks devoted to animals. The problem is, neither of these two Drs are a zoologist, and we're pretty sure Dan couldn't tell you the difference between any two closely related animals (try him, ask him the difference between a seagull and a dove). But this show is not about zoology, but rather the imagery (sometimes from the zoo) that humankind has used to identify and explain itself to others. We have an eye on the history of some of the more rich metaphors we have made as a species, from spirit animals to college mascots. On today's show the guys discuss everything from mascots, to pets, spirit animals, and images of redemption in the animal kingdom. Enjoy the show.
