The Fox into the Hound

The adorable litter of podcasters tells the story of a crazy Soviet scientist who domesticated foxes through selective breeding. Raj (consumate beta-male) lets fear guide his hatred of dogs, and proves himself to be the most unlikeable host. Joe and Jono, both canine lovers, discuss the scientific value of “cuddliness” and Jono reveals the origin of the pug. All 3 conclude human eugenics is wrong. Take that Hitler! Listen here.
