Doc and Nina are back from their January break and have a new episode. In this Valentine’s Day episode, they’re gushing, cooing, and preening about Geoffrey Chaucer’s “Parliament of Foules” — birds, that is. Ca-CAAA!
Topics covered: Valentine’s Day as a romantic day, low-brow ducks, dream visions, “The Dream of the Rood,” dating reality shows, socially approved relationships, the dark history of the cuckoo bird, and strange podcast metrics.
