Take Five #21: Deodorant

5 mins - Published Tue, Oct 11, 2016 by Anthony Hobday and Jack Marshall

What separates humans from other animals? It’s not our advanced communication skills, or our intelligence, or our technology. Those things are all trivial compared to the real difference: We’ve learned to care about how much we smell.

All of humanity’s hard work has simply been an attempt to develop technology that can help us smell less, and this week’s episode is about our achievement: Deodorant. Finally, our journey is complete and we can die off.


Take Five

Take Five is a show where we pick a random one-word topic, suggested by our listeners, and discuss it for five minutes - no research allowed! It's the shortest podcast on Earth!

... Possibly. We didn't check. So if you like short things and people who have no idea what they're talking about, listen to Take Five! What have you got to lose? Well; except 0.0000001% of your life?
