Our guest this week is Dr. Matt Lamanna, Paleontologist and Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at The Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Matt is a rock star in the world of paleontology, directs the third-largest collection of actual dinosaur fossils, and recently published a groundbreaking paper about a newly identified dinosaur called "Anzu". This creature he and his colleagues discovered has been called "The Chicken From Hell" and while it wasn't actually a chicken, it was very closely related to today's birds. 

Matt sat down to talk dinosaurs, digging, Michael Crichton, Anzu, and a whole lot more!

In this first-ever bonus episode, Liz Labacz and Zach talk love and frustration... and more love of Aaron Sorkin and all his writing, and series, and movies. The West Wing was a big deal for these two.

It's Liz Labacz! Liz is an actress, Improviser, writer and comedia, as well as one third of the hilarious female-driven sketch group "Frankly Scarlett". Liz is one of this class of funny and driven people in town who have been working diligently and patiently at the craft of comedy for several years now, and I feel like the culture in the city is finally catching to them. Liz has been involved in comedy since the early 2000s, and it feels like it's only been in the last few years that the we've seen an explosion in the scene that is starting to offer venues for people of her incredible level of talent. Liz stops by to talk comedy, writing, Aaron Sorkin, and SO much more.
