IQ meters spike up to dangerously high levels this week, as Jesse is joined by Richard “Rick” Rosner – who ranks second in The World Genius Directory. They discuss intelligence testing parameters and efficacy while making detours to futurism, human longevity and time travel. In addition to being an intellectual savant, Rosner also boasts past credentials as a comedy television writer, a bouncer and a male stripper, making him a truly eccentric genius.
For Halloween, we give a hat-tip to the Spooky Little Evil Kids of so many horror movies, by looking at a recent study into the gastrointestinal physiology of the “terrible two’s.” Stay tuned till the end for the Ruthless Listener Retention Gimmick: Horror Edition.
