For this week’s episode, the CA Team rolls with the first season of The Wheel of Time series (2021). We call bollocks on Trollocs and discuss the real world examples of persistence hunters and pursuit predation. We discuss how blight ain’t right by exploring the inner workings of mangroves plus the ecosystem they support and protect. And finally, we take a chill pill and examine the dangerous story trope of “fridging”.
