PBP012: Pterabytedactryls and Tyrammosaurus Rex

Poison Boy returns to discuss pediatric poisoning and teenage strychnine experimentation. Safety Ranger Bill Boroughf joins the conversation with a discussion of toxicity from artificial hips and the boys have a conversation about a recent local case of hydroflouric acid poisoning. The venomous media review is a discussion of the Basketball Diaries from 1995 and we rap up This Week in Tox History with a visit to Pompeii, potato chips in Saratoga, NY, transcendental meditation with the Beatles and Stones, the creation of chop suey, banana spider venom to treat erectile dysfunction, Rod Stewart, sulfur dioxide in Belgium, Star Trek, Squeaky Fromme and the Monkees.
