(Legacy) Jurassic Tales with professor Colin – CTRL+D Podcast #7

This week, we have a bit of an ad lib episode in which many topics were covered, chief amongst which, our universal love for all things dinosaur. Of course no main topic segment lasted longer than 10 minutes, before the conversation veered into an unknown direction, but I guess that’s just our jam.

Captain Redbeard, in all his glory.

Yes he will, for it has been said in the Holy Bible, chiefest among all books, that no life can be complete, until the soul that lives it has watched an episode of Dinosaurs.

[00:27:24] –

If the three of us lived in the same country, bible bashing would be a national sport.
