Today’s Junior Scientist Power Hour is all about ladies and their weird periods! What are periods? We don’t really know. But you can always tell when a woman is on her period because she has opinions that men don’t like, and sometimes they get mad!

It’s not like women get mad any other times, or that even if a woman is on her period, you should still listen to the words she says and not write them off as “crazy uterus talk”

TY HALLEY is a webcomics and #StripSearch luminary! If you haven’t read his work yet, we’d recommend taking some time to enjoy The Secret Life of a Journal Comic, his work as a writer on Penny Arcade / Scott Kurtz’s The Trenches, and his recently resurrected That’s Inhuman. But aside from that, if you like clever people having clever conversations, talking about how journal comics can tap into truths of the human experience, and discussions about TAKING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT, this is the podcast for you!

But seriously. Ty is awesome. Everyone should follow him on Twitter, and read his comics! And also, listen to how smart and hilarious he is on this pod.

You can also listen to the episode here:

EVERYONE GO READ THE TRENCHES AND THAT’S INHUMAN! And thanks for listening! If you liked the show and have any thoughts, let us know on Twitter or in the comments! And please, share the show with your friends! You’re the best.




In addition to capturing nostalgia, there are many reasons the show caught on with the younger crowd: It launched a thousand catchphrases (“Legend – wait for it – dary”), pick-up lines (“Haaave you met Ted?”) and teachings for 20-something life (“Nothing good ever happens after 2 a.m.”). Overall though, “HIMYM” offered a much more valuable lesson about the importance of adult friendship, as the intense bonding in post-college years means that those friends essentially become your family.
