Baby Geniuses

Baby Geniuses is a show for people who know stuff and people who don't know stuff, but would like to. Every other 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.

Hello babies!

Eat anything good lately? Lisa's dog ate her mouthguard and underwear. Emily does Zumba with two middle aged women and considers learning Spanish. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Mozart and Scatology." Turns out everyone's favorite composer loved fart jokes as much as the rest of us!

Hello, babies!

It's tax season, so we're doing anything to distract ourselves from filing! We're digging through various 1099s to find listener submitted questions. All your questions will finally be answered! How do you start dating again after being widowed? How do you respond to an overly complicated bro high five? On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Chicken eyeglasses." Chickens used to wear stylish spectacles to protect from feather pecking and cannibalism!

Hello babies!

It's the greatest time of the year - the MaxFunDrive! Make sure you sign up to become a member so you can get access to the special bonus episode! We do a march madness style bracket to help decide what celebrities belong in Terrace House: Baby Geniuses edition.

On this episode we read the Wikipedia page for "Goofy," but you may know him as George G. Geef or Goofus D. Dawg. But that would be weird if you did!

Hello babies!

Got any great travel plans? We don't! In this episode, Lisa successfully blurbs a book, Emily is still considering starting the podcast about wiping ass. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Mariko Aoki phenomenon," a Japanese expression referring to an urge to defecate that is suddenly felt after entering bookstores. Scientists are clamoring to find an explanation.

Hello babies!

We've been very busy lately so we're finally catching up on all the good things we missed last year. Why didn't anyone tell Emily to watch Get Out sooner? On this episode, we let the toucan out of the bag! Lisa is creating a new show for Netflix! Tuca & Bertie stars some of the characters she's been doodling while recording Baby Geniuses. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Flatulence Humor." Humans have been laughing at our own farts for millennia. Sorry mom, it's not a "phase" I'll "grow out of."

Hello babies!

If a baby Bojack appeared on your porch, would you take care of it? Someone made an eerily realistic Bojack doll and sold it on Etsy. We'd like for whoever bought it to come forward. Emily recorded her live album in Portland recently, she would like to say thank you to the lovely person who sent her a whole cheese pizza. On Wiki of the Week, we read the extremely on brand Wikipedia page for Each-uisge, a mythical water horse.

Hello, babies!
We hope you enjoyed the Big Game! We spent Sunday cheering for 2018 all star Phil Rosenthal. We skipped the puppy bowl and revisited that show about hypothetical bizarre animal fights. Also on this episode: a couple is inspired by our witch tattoo conversation and gets matching butt tatts! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Clamato."

Hello geniuses!

I mean, hello babies! Both come off kinda condescending, right? We don’t really mean to be. In this episode, Emily considers marrying Lisa’s dog. Lisa has conflicting emotions regarding the hypothetical ceremony. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “List of Gestures,” which is awfully comprehensive.

Hello babies! 

Emily didn't get a lot of sleep last night because her neighbors fighting, so please ignore all the cold brew slurping sounds. She's hot off the heels of throwing a successful retirement party for all men. We'll explain what that is. Lisa reads a book about a sexy merman and discovers that's not really her thing. On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for "Catalan mythology about witches." It gave us some fun tattoo ideas!
