Episode 17 Will Surpr*eyes* You

Episode 17: Alike Inside

Still trapped inside the Lady Jana’s castle, Blister encounters a barmy old chap in rags who roams the dreary rooms. Jana explains how she will turn Blister’s thoughts into tangible proof of animal intelligence. She will use the evidence to knock mankind off the animal kingdom’s throne, thereby restoring balance. Blister doubts her plan, but celebrates her promise to pay him amply with food.

For the curious, here are links to excellent videos, books, and articles about Charles Darwin, evolution, and more of the topics discussed in the episode intro:
