Ep. 12: Monkey Heist! (Leca et al., 2021)

Monkeys, much like wine, get better with age [at stealing flip flops]. In this episode of the MBJC, the hosts re-cap the tastelessness of the previous episode, re-tread Leah’s anti-trans(genic mouse) opinions, and marvel at a strong, independent, neurotransmitter receptor that’s doesn’t need any ligand telling it how to live it’s best life! Also, get over yourself, macramé!
