Including glow-in-the-dark kittehs, wisdom of the crowds, polio, jellyfish, robots and SO MUCH MORE.

This week, aimee and Elf continue our roundup of things which made us go ‘squeee’ in the preceding week.
We’d like to apologise for this week’s podcast: between aimee’s sniffles (and her brain having turned to mucous) and Elf having hurt his voice yelling ‘yaaaarrrr!’ at people for several hours, it’s a very, um, _vocal_ podcast.
(Alternatively, go check out the Internet Archive page for a player, other formats, etc).
As always, you can check out the pearltree for this week’s episode, and the links for other podcasts (including the ones from before we went public) here. Please note: Pearltrees is flash-based, and at the moment, that means that mobile devices, esp. Apple-based ones, will likely not run it (this looks likely to change). Which is why we put all the links down below, too :)
And yes, we’re working on the iTunes thing. Really we are :)
