“Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by sixty-five million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?” That’s a question I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since Alan Grant first posed it back in the summer of 93. Throughout the course of this season, we’ll be exploring some of the many fascinating questions that just might arise in a world shared by mankind and dinosaurs alike. As I a ...

So join comedian and skeptic Katelyn Hempstead as her brilliant friends try to convince her of these and many other conspiracy theories.

We live in a culture that prizes youth and tells us that, once our wild 20s are over, we're basically on the slow train to decay and death.
