Dan Telfer is a Chicago comic and writer and total fan o’ science! That thing that historians loved so much and some modern folk have so many issues about. Dinosaurs are just the tip of the iceberg here, folks. We taped early in the day and I’m just awake! Heh. This is a great dork on dork dialog. He’s great and you should see him live! Enjoy.
