Erin has a one-on-one with our friend and inspiration Irene Marquette while Tyler works some dumb job. A spiral galaxy leads them on their own spiral into mythology, history and the preservation and interpretation of both.
The fanciest crone human Sarah Hoffman sat on our couch and engaged our brains while we used a Canadian voice-over actor to learn about female bodybuilding, adrenaline, and Louis Wolfson, inventor of the modern hostile take-over.
Content warning: This episode has discussion of sex work and gender identity. And cursing.

Sean Ellis sticks up for the losing side of history as we use a 1991 rock album to leap into the lost legacies of Mesoamerica, the moral bankruptcy of televangelists, and the messy evolution of MTV.

Phil Meister kicks off into the deep end of the Rabbit Hole with us, using the 2012 indie rom com Gayby to lead us to ascetic sufis, ukrainian folk musicians and the Emperor of Ethiopia. Along the way, a rapping hot dog.
Musician, comedian and soon-to-be Angeleno Brian Biancardi joins us in a Rabbit Hole that starts with a lauded botanist and ends in scrunchy tiny ancient mammals, a song of the north wind, and the feminine divine.
Friend and lateral research enthusiast Jorin Garguilo joins us to talk about butterflies, witches, and neurons, and he takes us into the seedy inner workings of Wikipedia itself.

Mel Forrest joins us (and our squeaky, slurpy dog Po) to discuss Japanese train stations and their natural corollaries: baseball, kit houses and faith healing.
Becca Slack joins us as we explore the links surrounding a modern German politician, and end up getting fairly bummed out as we reflect on the history of the 20th century.
The delightable Jake Shuda jumped down the Rabbit Hole with us, starting from the 2006 Yukmouth and Killa Klump album Killa Thugs and spinning wildly out to Buddhist thoughtforms, Yellowman, and the unrelatable majesty of the heron.
Keep your eye out for Jake's new band, Haleakala, touring the midwest this spring.
In Episode 1, Gabe Morrison steps up to the mic as the first guest in Rabbit Hole history. Starting from The University of the West Indies, the discussion ranges wide, going from the reputation of places of higher learning to how to mime riding an airplane to Religion to charting the unknown to Gabe's American Indian heritage.
