Birds and the Bees

    Listen

    Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it — copulate, that is. We step into the facinating kingdom of animal sex with biologist Carin Bondar on this animal themed episode. Step into the operating room for cat plastic surgery, meet a pup with a purple mohawk, and go under the sea to hear a sound that scientists hope will save sea turtles. 

    It’s going to be a wild ride.
