A very merry un-birthday to all of us! Brain Junk is lighting the candles so make a wish and give this episode a listen. Slurp a longevity noodle, take an extra large slice of cake and come with us around the world to explore how we all celebrate getting older.
We’ve all fallen down an internet rabbit hole, landed on a fact and thought…this can’t possibly be true! But, every once in a while, those strange facts actually are. If you’ve ever wondered about hippo’s having pink sweat or if you’re more evolved than your friends, we have the answers. Amyalso explores the amount of insects we’re allowed to have in our food…coffee tastes so much better when it’s cricket flavored.
Welcome to our first episode! Have you ever thought about how dinosaurs managed to sit on their eggs without squishing them? Or maybe wondered at what an ant sees when it looks in the mirror? Today we are going to answer those questions and more as Amy and Trace explore the strange and cool world of animals.
We’d also like to thank Andrea Parrish and Jeremiah Puhek at A Thousand Things to talk About for all their help with learning how to podcast.

Welcome to the weird, wacky and sometimes gross world of Brain Junk. Amy and Trace will be coming at ya with episodes on Tuesdays about everything you never knew you wanted to know. We’ll be talking about the strange lives of unusual animals, explore the history of mooning and insults, and even catch up with how the world celebrates birthdays. Brain Junk debuts May 29th with four new episodes! Visit us at BrainJunkPodcast.com to learn more.
Amy and I have been working up a storm. Got the new blanket fort. Ahem, studio all set up for better sound quality and we’re working on finding our rhythm for recording. We might even be able to, MAYBE, put out an episode a week. We’ll see.
Best news so far is the fact that we have three episodes all done! Stuff you never knew you wanted to know about Birthdays, Your Weird Body, and Stuff That Sounds False but is Actually True.
Going to record two more on Wednesday, From the Bookshelf, a deep dive into things that come from books; you know, those things with pages that old people like to gain knowledge from?!? And, Female Beauty Aids. It’s a lot of…what were we thinking?
I’m gonna race to get them edited then we extend our files to itunes and hope they like us. I’m so looking forward to sharing all the fun we’ve been having with all of you!
Hopefully, Brain Junk will be out there in the world by mid May.
