Blow Your Mind: The Penis Episode, Parts I and II

This is how it works.
This is how it works.

So this week, we devote two episodes to the penis. Or rather, we recorded two penis episodes and it was too long, so we cut it in half. So now you get to experience one episode that largely revolves around the human phallus while the second episode tackles the amazing world of animal penises. Here's how it breaks down:

The Penis Episode, Part I Stop giggling. Sure, the human penis is a rather ridonkulous organ, but it's also a marvel of anatomical design. In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Julie and I explore a cornucopia of wanger-related topics like, what do penises and earthworms have in common. Also, why place the goods in such a precarious place? And could early humans have sported spines on their penises?

The Penis Episode, Part II In part two Julie and I ask the inevitable: Can you break your penis and, if so, how easy is it to fix? Plus you'll learn all about the animal kingdom's many perplexing members, including the detachable spider penises and the four-pronged echidna member.
