On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the boys start off by talking about how researchers have long known that eye contact is an important social signal.

Then, they bring up a recent Black Eyed Kid encounter by a hunter, Then, archaeologists working in southern Nevada have found nearly 20 sites used by ancient hunter-gatherers as much as 12,000 years ago. And even though the sites are remote, they weren’t discovered by accident. Scientists expected to find them there.

Then, after the break the guys talk about the history of submarines and a haunted or cursed vessel called UB-65 and some true tales of haunted cruise ships!
