Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don't know stuff, but would like to. Every week, comedian and super-genius Emily Heller and cartoonist and mastermind Lisa Hanawalt, challenge their guests to share some knowledge on any topic they want.
How great does food in cartoons look? What animated cuisine looks the most appetizing to you? Lisa tries shower belly, and it’s as hard as it sounds. We talk Emily’s favorite new tv show, which stars the polar opposite of Anthony Bourdain. In this very special edition of Chunch Chat, we talk Frederick the Great. He is considered to be the world’s most handsome horse. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed (unless this were some sort of Godfather horse head situation)! In Wiki of the Week, we talk about the analgesic effects of swearing. Gonzalo Cordova joins us to teach us about his favorite actress, Barbara Stanwyck. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne graces us with his presence to discuss the art of acting.

If you listen to today’s Chunch Chat segment, you’ll learn that Martha Stewart still has three friendly miniature Sicilian donkeys.

Kelly Kellerman preps us on the unbreakable rules of brunch. Maybe pour a mimosa before you start listening to this episode?

We dish out on who shouldn't listen to our show! They probably aren't listening to our show anyways. We're horrified by Microsoft's teenage girl chatbot that learns how to communicate from humans. SPOILER ALERT: It's totally racist! Somebody had a very elegant three piece tweed suit tailored for their horse, and about a million people sent it in. We're joined by writer Christine Nangle who lives really close to us. It’s never too early to get ready for the holidays, so we’ve started feeding our Tió de Nadal early to maximize the number of gifts it will shit out.

Hello babies! So much to cover! This is gonna be an uncomfortable one folks! Strap in and strap on a peeing device!
