LION. KING. How a 19 year old lion fathered 35 cubs… in a year and a half. This is the wild story of a lion named Frasier—Frasier the Sensuous Lion—who became a science wonder the world over in 1972. After all, how many lions have movies and songs made about them because of never before seen animal behavior?

You see, Frasier defied what was previously known about lion breeding habits—any animal’s really. Did you say 35 cubs? In just 18 months? And, wait, how old?

► WATCH! every single episode of WILD LIVES here:

► HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED about what makes an animal hibernate? PopSci formed an orchestra of hibernating animals to tell you about their winter’s sleep:

► DID YOU KNOW the first underwater film ever recorded was lost to history until PopSci found it mislabeled in a Dutch archive? It’s a story too strange to be fiction (and, yes, it involves a shark and a horse). Also, it’s the first footage of a shark ever recorded:

► DO YOU LOVE DOGS? WHAT ABOUT SPACE? Watch our video about Laika, our hero:

In their own words. Well, approximately their own words—they are wild animals after all.

A caffeine detox destroyed me || Test Dummy Ep. 3 || Popular Science (#stayhome and #learn #withme)

Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive drug on the planet. Like all good things in this world, it should be consumed in moderation—but PopSci editors Jess Boddy and Claire Maldarelli were definitely not following that unwritten rule, guzzling between six and ten cups of coffee per day. That put them at risk for disrupted sleep, heart palpitations, unusual nervousness, and more. So they decided to detox. Will their torturous 14-day cut regulate their sleep patterns and teach them to respect caffeine for the powerful drug that it is? Find out on this week’s episode of Test Dummy.

This week on Test Dummy, Jess attempts to lower her stress and chill out using the meditation app Headspace. Eleanor Cummins, a freelance science and technology writer (and meditation app expert), joins in to answer Jess’ questions and try sleep meditation for the first time using Calm. Meditating every day—on Headspace or Calm, for instance—is supposed to help Jess and Eleanor become more mindful, improve their sleep, lower their blood pressure, and ultimately de-stress them. Together, the duo dive into peer-reviewed research and interview experts to find the truth: Will they be able to reach a new level of calm by meditating with the same iPhones that stress them out?
