As gamers, we don’t often think of the terrain as alive, except when the furniture is trying to kill us. But lakes, rivers, and wetlands have surprising life cycles. And they also make wonderful homes for the mysterious ghostly lights called ignus fatuus.
In 1983, Laura and Tracy Hickman reinvented vampires into something fresh, new, and different. It’s too bad they were a century too late.
The tundra is one of the youngest and harshest biomes on Earth. And it is home to one of the most misunderstood rodents on Earth. Lemmings are neither suicidal nor stupid. And the misunderstanding is NOT Disney’s fault.
Biology is one big game of “one of these things is not like the others.” So, what’s the difference between a forest and a boreal forest?

We didn’t mean to turn this episode into a discussion of one of the most unique and delicate biomes on Earth into a puff piece about how awesome Michael Crichton was and how great a place Costa Rica is.

Through the magic of homographs, our garden path diverges today, but we travel both as one traveler. So, enjoy the discussion of henge – Japanese animal spirits – or the discussion of henges – stone age monolithic constructions. Or both.
