(RE-POST from Season 1) In this episode, hosts Kirsten and Bey kick this season off how all podcasts should - by diving deep into the world of frog sex. Biologist Dr. Alex Baugh shares how frogs make mate choices and introduces us to one of his many frog subjects. Later in the episode, we sit down with Franklin Institute’s chief bioscientist, Dr. Jayatri Das, to talk about popular ideas and research in the science world surrounding our first impressions in relationships. Burning question: is gaydar a real thing?
