  • An ode to goldfish

    28:10
    So, here's a joke for you:My friend's goldfish died the other day So I surprised her and got her an identical one!She was furious, saying “what am I supposed to do with two dead goldfish?”TODAY! We bust the many myths about goldfish and learn how they're so much more than fairground prizes that die as soon as you put them in a glass bowl. And also about why they should NEVER be put into a traditional goldfish bowl, how goldfish have better memories than many of us... AND, they're smart.Presented by Collie Ennis and Colette Kinsella, produced by Colette Kinsella for Red Hare Media.As usual, don't forget to hit us up on our various channels with questions, queries or things you'd like us to get nerdy about:FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/TheCritterShedDUB/TWITTER: @crittershedpodEMAIL: crittershed@gmail.comMusic:Podington: Curious, BelfastImage:GOLDFISH: By Benoît Prieur - Own work, CC0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=16152756
