Your Brain on Facts is a half-hour podcast of things you didn’t know, things you thought you knew, and things you never knew you never knew, covering topics as diverse as science-fiction, funerals, food origins, heroic animals, and the strategic butter reserve.
Before she started the Your Brain On Facts podcast to safely vent the copious bonus facts in her brain, Moxie LaBouche performed and produced burlesque, specifically "nerd-lesque." It was her privilege to produce the only George R. R. Martin-approved burlesque tribute to Game of Thrones and even to play for the man himself.
Moxie has presented a local TED talk, is the prolific author of
unfinished fiction, knows seven words of Latin, and previously
earned her living as a goat farmer and soap maker. She is also the
creator and co-host of the Science With Savannah, Age 7 podcast and
Moxie lives in Virginia with her husband and a dozen or so pets.
There are wild hippos in Columbia, which originally belonged to cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, and wild camels in Texas that were part of a failed plan by the US Army camel corps. President Teddy Roosevelt had wanted to import hippos to the US to be raised in the bayou for meat.
