The Blastoff crew comes to us this week from a hotel hatch in Montreal, Canada! After discussing some important topics such as social anxiety, sweating onstage, and diarrhea pools, they welcome guest expert/blastronaut Katie Pagnucco to talk about Ecology and invasive species. Katie explains why islands are most often impacted by invasive species, Kyle & David share some stories of having a species invade their home, and everyone does some improv! “Yes, and” indeed!
