Corrections, Conclusions and Clarifications:

  • Rissa said it was a Lore podcast about the Little Mermaid, it was actually the Myths and Legends podcast.
  • Gastroenterologists are the doctors that do colonoscopies.
  • A Proctologist is a doctor specializing in the colon, anus and rectum.
  • Is the Lions mane jellyfish endangered? It has not been evaluated by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and is not in danger of extinction.
  • Rissa said the game on Wii was “Blue Ocean,” but it’s actually “Endless Ocean,” and it’s sequel, “Endless Ocean: Blue World.”
