Hang out with Corey & Mel as they discuss all the listener feedback and questions they've gotten over the past 10 episodes from family and friends around the world. You'll learn a cool technique for relaxing stubborn muscles, conjecture on how Harry Potter World might use lasers, that Mel cannot impersonate an ice cream truck to save her life, the meaning of "biomimicry," and one good thing about mosquitos.
