Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 22: Opted Out, Got Groped

Mark Nolan

Another Monday, another podcast. Pete and Bill talk about airplanes, airports and stuff that comes out of your body.

Many of us have taken to the air in hopes of arriving at another destination safely. On this podcast, Pete and Bill discuss airport Twitterin', Twitter wills, airports, airport food, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, the offensiveness of the TSA, opting out, getting groped, odd ways to pee, bodily functions Bill is offended by, and a whole lot more.

Excerpt:

Pete: For those that don't know him personally, Bill is perhaps the most couth individual I have ever met. If you ever need a primer on how to behave in an airport bathroom, when you're meeting royalty, or when you just have a hankering for a soda fountain, talk to Bill. He'll set you straight.
Bill: OK, so I guess at this point we have to talk about how I hate farts.
Pete: Again, the most couth individual. If there's a thing that your body does that involves noise or projection, Bill probably doesn't want you to do it.
