Life is a lot of things, but one thing it can be is unexpectedly big. Like, really, really big. What started as a random question from a high schooler ("what's the biggest living thing?") with a seemingly straight forward answer, evolved into a search that lead to some very unexpected places. Such a big journey called for the crossover of the century! We joined forces with Ellen Weatherford of Just the Zoo of Us (an animal review podcast) to explore the world's oceans, the African Savanna, a plateau in Utah, and the forest of eastern Oregon in our search for the Biggest of the BIG.
