Kelly Blades and I are super excited to let you know that the latest episode of the Kayak Mainline podcast is live and waiting for your beautiful ears to listen along.

For those who follow along on the Mainline Facebook page will remember about 2 weeks ago we recorded as well. Sadly when I went to go edit I discovered that a technical gremlin for into the works causing the recording to come out sounding terrible. The sound quality was amazingly bad. So we scrapped the whole thing. Luckily the latest episode turned out pretty good.

This was a podcast of discovery including:

  • a new piece of technology gear for communicating in the outdoors,
  • why whales blow bubbles (it’s not why you think),
  • a fantastic new Mosquito Repellent that smells as good as it looks.

Finally, we get excited to discover that swearing in front of children no longer a crime in Michigan. That’s FREEDOM baby!

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did putting it together.

Anybody who has spent time in the outdoors can relate when I say that mosquitoes are the scourge of the earth.

But just because we hate them and we know they suck, doesn't mean they are not good for something.

In the video below Rose Eveleth shares a bunch of cool things about the worlds most hated bug next to the Blackfly along with why it probably isn't a good thing to have them completely wiped off the face of the earth.

Look up; there be bugs [Educational Video]

NPR put together a very entertaining cartoon explaining why you can find massive numbers of insects flying along on the wind currents 5,000-10,000 feet up in the air. I’m not talking about big monster flying bugs but rather butterflies, wasps, aphids and ladybugs.

Best fun fact in the video: If you wanted to add up all the bugs in a typical 0.6 square mile column of air you would need to count to at least 3 billion. That happens everyday in June, July and August. Wow.

And here all this time, I thought the sky only belonged to birds and Super Grover.
