Some of the world’s most unique animals such as eels or sloths have been misunderstood over the years. We hear from a zoologist about what fascinating features we’ve been overlooking. Additionally, we get a dose of encouragement to make the extra effort to get out of our usual spaces and explore neighboring cities and towns around us and we look at the remaining questions about health and safety in Superior following the Husky Energy Refinery fire there two weeks ago.
