The Best Way to Enslave a Dolphin

From Rare Earth. This episode is about aquariums, because I was at an aquarium. I want to mention that the best part of the aquarium was the goats. They’re not exactly normal aquarium fare. Every day you could come around at a certain time and they’d let you take them for a walk. And there’s…

The Spartan Death Trials of Yonaguni Island

From Rare Earth. Sorry for the late launch. Yesterday, we accidentally released the video early for a second. That caused YouTube notifications to be sent out then but not now when the video launched at the correct time. We decided to re-upload. This is a story of sacrifice. And taxes. I’m not gonna lie, I’m…

Should Japan Kill This Cat?

From Rare Earth. No, they shouldn’t. But also, kind of, yes, they should? It’s tricky. Watch the video. Stay away from my cats.

The Fantasy Sex Island of Ancient Japan

From Rare Earth. Yonaguni: An island pulled straight from the pages of middle-ages Japanese lust poetry. An island sailors whisper about to new crew. An island of women. Before I forget: A massive thank you to all the new Patrons. Kata and I were blown away by the response. Incredible to know how many of…

The Other Grave of the Fireflies

From Rare Earth. This is the saddest thing I’ve ever produced. Nobody expects you to make it to the end. But Tomiko made it. Somehow, she made it through everything. If you’d like to know more about her story, her memories are recorded in the book "The Girl with the White Flag". It’s a hard…

The Fart-Hating God of Okinawa

From Rare Earth. Today’s video is in conjunction with thousands of #teamtrees creators, big and small. Millions of normal people, taking a moment to help. Please consider donating your hard earned dollars to https://teamtrees.org/. I’ll be giving the money earned from our ad revenue and Patreon this week, which should be a few thousand to…

Should Malta Be Catholic?

From Rare Earth. As usual, I take a broad swipe at modern religion and politics, all while supporting the thing I hold most dear: freedom of expression. This video was made in response to a casual misunderstanding delivered over some really good pizza. I wish more misunderstandings came with good pizza. Your support keeps us…

Malta’s World Famous Penis Fungus

From Rare Earth. I am a child trapped in a man’s body, and I expect to die a child trapped in a man’s body. But as long as I keep getting to make dick jokes, all will be right with the world. At least, so long as I pop some cynomorium. Your support keeps us…

The Ancient Temple Nobody Loves

From Rare Earth. No matter what you do, don’t go on Google reviews and hyperinflate Bugibba Temple’s social value to trick tourists into visiting. I definitely wouldn’t giggle about that. See ya’ll next week!

The Great Siege of Malta

From Rare Earth. The last of our small country tour is Malta. I did a bunch of videos here, and this is sort of the foothold for them all. It was so much fun, and such a beautiful island to film on. I had a great time here. Thanks so much to my sister for…

The Grief Machine

From Rare Earth. We went to see a piece of art while waiting for our flight to Malta, and it made me reflective, so I wanted to talk about it. This is the Sihlfeld Graveyard Grief Machine. It’s an art installation from the graveyard’s Forum, which is a space meant to inspire contemplation about death.…
