Episode 128: King of the Jungle

 

Shauna and Dan explore why the lion is called the King of the Jungle when they don't live in jungles. Turns out, our view of what "jungle" means today may be heavily skewed by the pop culture of the late-1800s and mid-1960s. Looking at you, Rudyard Kipling. Bonus conversations about mockbusters, animated 90s movies, and the great con artist PT Barnum. #BunnyTrails
