Yes, in this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Julie and I discuss the science of gigantism.
What causes some humans to reach such gigantic size?
Why are island ecosystems like Wonderland, where one evolutionary pill makes you smaller and another makes you larger?
All this and more shall be revealed. Plus we'll run through some pretty amazing examples of both man and beast that really tip the scales.
Plus some listener mail! Another listener chimes in on the "Ghoulies" VHS cover art.
