Yes, that is a goat. Listen to find out why.

Our panel is back to review the week — and what a week it has been! Our guests, The New Yorker staff writer Helen Rosner and ¡Hola Papi! columnist John Paul Brammer, share their hot takes on everything from the Facebook outage to the viral story ‘Who Is the Bad Art Friend?

Then, we sit down with the hilarious science writer Mary Roach. She is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Grunt, Stiff, and Gulp, among others. Her latest, Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law, explores the sticky situations that arise when humans and wildlife collide. Stick around and you might just find out why we chose to include a goat on the website this week!
