When did “the wave” become a staple of stadium crowds? ELT talks to the professional cheerleader who first got fans out of their seats. Plus, the egg-laying mammal that is not a marsupial; we give monotremes their due.

Guests: professional cheerleader “Krazy” George Henderson; weird-Australian-mammal expert Robin Beck.

Thanks to callers Leslie, Natalie, and Manuel.
