Episode #140: The Serpent Fam

Both of our parents join us in the tangent cube for this episode, to talk about their backgrounds and tell stories of the shenanigans we got up to as kids, and their philosophy of education that had such a huge impact on how we go about life, always trying to learn new things from the natural world around us.

This is a special episode for us, and as so many families around the world are spending a lot more time together right now, we thought it would be fun to have all four of us crammed into the cube for a good old fashioned Allen roundtable. Many listeners are already familiar with the Snake Stache from his previous appearance on episode #84, and this is the first time the Snake Mom has been on the show.

We hope you all enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it!

  1. I should have waited until morning to listen so I wouldn't still be laughing at 2 a.m. and awake at 4:30 with occasional giggles...

  2. THAT was just great! Really enjoyed hearing about your "roots". I have to say though that your folks must be just living SAINTS! lol
    No, kidding of course. It's obvious where you two get your smarts from!
