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: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆
