It's the first actual episode! Thank you everyone for your support of the show. This week, Jason and Matt talk about their March for Science plans. You can catch Matt in Ft. Myers with a "Don't Tread on Science" sign, and Jason will be repping the show in Detroit with a Hashtag Science poster. They talk about a snake that went to rehab and a species of ant that rescues its injured kin. Find out how ocellated lizards get their crazy awesome patterns and just what in the actual hell is a shipworm. How do schools of fish solve problems, and where do some of the components of sleep physiology come from?
