Episode 67: Stupid Successful Frog

In this ramshackle episode, FU: how to pronounce generic names for cheetahs. News from World of Darren and John: Darren needs to leave SciAm (give hime money!), Jurassic World and Lego, trees, magpies, and abstract expressionist dinosaurs (yes you need them).
News from World of News (da da dah!): Rashid et al. pygostyle paper, Electrorana a stupid successful frog, which wasn't even actually electric. Also, pterosaurs in amber... or art they? No they're not... unless...

Popular tat:  25 years of Jurassic Park, and John has been made to see Jurassic World 2 against his will. Spoiler - he didn't like it.

John: ★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Episode 66: Giant Man-Babies

In this episode, FU on white-eyes, liberal left and anti-vaxxers, CTO not TCO or was the TCO not CTO? News from the World of "Science and Books": After Man new edition, is the giant cheetah really a cheetah, and sweaty wolverines. News from World John and Darren: sexual selection conference, Ford vs Naish, Dinosaurs HTLE 2nd edition cover. A long-lost (and still lost but remembered) Cash for Question! 

A new segment: Darren Summarises TV and Film, including Lost in Space, Cloverfield Paradox, and Infinity War (more like Infinity BORE amirite?).

Episode 56: Rogue Eyes

The much-anticipated Episode 56 is here. Darren and John discuss the the dinosaur controv-ersy or contra-versy (it controversial) of dinosaur soft tissue, the origin or affinities of Jar Jar Binks, and what we know about dinosaur eyes. Also, Darren's and Mark (Witton - take a drink)'s new azhdarchid paper is out.

Finally, Rogue One, which - in a shocking twist - we agree on:

Darren: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
John: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

Episode 49: Cowboys vs Tetrapodcats

In this episode, Darren and John get progressively less serious. Starting White Nose Syndrome in bats and the history of such events, giant herbivores of the Permian, and tool use in snakes, discussion concludes with a chaotic rundown of the merits of Jurassic Hunters AKA Cowboys vs Dinosaurs. Conclusion: better than Jurassic World.

Darren: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
John: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
