A herpetologist and a conservationist join me to imagine life on a rainforest world. We decide it's run by a race of flying fish lizards who love community and pay for things with a toxic fruit.

Have you ever wished you could travel to a different world? Exolore can help with that! In each episode, astrophysicist/folklorist Moiya McTier explores fictional worlds by building them with a panel of expert guests, interviewing professional worldbuilders, or reviewing the merits of worlds that have already been built. You'll learn, you'll laugh, and you'll gain an appreciation for how special our planet really is.
