Episode 81: Queen Bee

This week mixes entomology with etymology as Dan explores the phrase Queen Bee. For thousands of years we called them King Bees, despite knowing for a good portion of that time the leader of the honey bee colony was female. Spoiler alert: It's Aristotle's fault. Well, his and everyone else who contributed (and still contributes) to systemic discrimination in nearly all our institutions. But thanks to Charles Butler and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Bee broke free!

We have earworms, Twitter threads, and long book titles in store for this week's Bunny Trails!

Episode 80: Work of Art

We're back!!!
This week's episode was inspired by the new book, "You Are An Artist" by Sarah Urist Green - available at your local bookseller now!
Shauna looks at the phrase "Work of Art". We search from the Oxford English Dictionary to Urban Dictionary, and loads of places in between, to learn the word "art" used to have a much broader meaning than we see today.
