Everybody get off your feet!  Cause we got the Meat!

Anyway hey kids.  We've got the meats.  Welcome to part two of our EVOLUTION series!! There's less wackos, less drugs, and no Joe.  But wait-- let me tell you why you SHOULD listen!

This week Ashley starts us off by telling us where white people came from.  Ok... rough start... Lauren teaches us about a VERY plausible theory involving our evolving diets and what it may have done to our growing brains, we discuss the ways evolution can still be seen in the human body today, and we shed some light on what we may look like in the future.... See... I told you it was good.

Tune in to find out more about how we've changed in the last few MILLION years, why it's sillier to be racist than you initially thought, and why our grannies may have saved the human species.

DISCLAIMER: ARBYS DID NOT SPONSOR THIS EPISODE.  NEITHER DID THE GOGOS.  WE JUST ENJOY GOOD MUSIC AND ROAST BEEF.

Mmmmm Pudding Bones...

It's time to EVOLVE, weirdos!  This is part ONE of our series on evolution and naturally we had to invite Mr. Anthropology minor himself HANDSOME JOE on the show to come teach us about some of the things he learned when he was hard at work NOT earning a degree in anthropology.

This week Joe starts us off discussing a major SOCIAL evolution that made us the human beings we are today.  The AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION!  I know it sounds boring... and maybe it is... but not when Joe is teaching it.  How did we go from primitive humans to the Tesla driving, avocado toast munching, kama sutra reading beings we are today?

Ashley takes over to tell us her absolute FAVORITE theory of evolution- the grooviest theory we've got-- known as the Stoned Ape theory.  Scientists are still searching for the answers to what on Earth (or beyond) enabled our species to enhance our intelligence and consciousness further than any other species on the planet?  Could it be... DRUGS?!

And Lauren finishes the episode by teaching us some other totally plausible and not at all baseless theories on evolution that unfortunately come from our religious friends known as creationists.  Stay tuned for this section if you REALLY want to hear Joe lose his cool, just make sure you turn the volume down juuuuuuuust a skosh.

Take me to your leader..

Oof, wrong time for that wouldn't you say?  Mmmm our leaders are busy can we take you to our favorite musical artist instead?  This week we are fired up for another EXTRATERRESTRIAL EXTRAVAGANZA as we continue our discussion on ALIEN INVASIONS!! 

Only this time around we are posing the question-- what if they are already here?  What if we're so busy looking for their ships in the sky that we don't even notice they've slipped in through the back door.  Or maybe through the ocean?

Ashley kicks us off this week by teaching us about STARSEEDS! Extraterrestrial SOULS that have incarnated on earth to help with mankind's spiritual evolution.  Lauren dives deep, DEEP into the depths of the ocean to look for secret alien bases.  The girls discuss what an alien would actually LOOK like if they were already here with us.  And we finish it off on a REAL BUMMER, as Lauren shares with us what some famous scientists, physicists, and of course- psychics- have to say about when and if the aliens are coming...

We come in peace, weirdos.

We're revisiting one of our all time favorite topics this week.  This is PART ONE of another two part EXTRATERRESTRIAL EXTRAVAGANZA. 

This time we are focusing on the idea of INVASION.  We've seen it in a hundred movies, presented in a hundred different ways-- are any of them accurate?  Will they show up guns-a-blazin' turning us individually into ash?  Will they sneak in in the middle of the night? Will they come with a message of peace and gifts of technology?  Or will they slowly take over our bodies one by one and by the time any of us realize something is very wrong its far too late and everywhere we turn will be infiltrated to the point where we are completely alone and left with no friends, no options, no hope.  Jeez, got a little dark there.

Lauren starts us off by touching on different sci-fi alien tropes as we discuss our opinions on their likelihood and Ashley takes the reigns to present a real life phenomenon that presents us with EVEN MORE QUESTIONS about their intentions.  Women and men being abducted all over the world and claiming that aliens took their DNA for experiments.  What are they doing with it? Are they creating alien-human hybrids?  Why?

Join us this week AND next as we try and find out what ET had to say when he phoned home.
