Hi there, Keepers. We're back on our regular release schedule, but that doesn't mean the fight for black lives is over, or any of the vital conversations that have been happening. Scroll down in these show notes for some important resources/places to donate.

We're keeping it simple this week with a good old giant octopus! Nothing better for your manmade lake than an octopus the size of a horse! Oh, what's that? That's one of the worst things to have in your manmade lake? If you say so. This week's topic is the Oklahoma Octopus, which is absolutely exactly what it sounds like. Join us as we dive into the apparently fairly dangerous waters of three Oklahoma lakes, where there have been whispers of a strange and aggressive tentacled creature for several years. We also take a moment to discuss an incredibly important and often overlooked piece of Oklahoma (and American) history.

RESOURCES:

(This is an incomplete list and should be considered a place to start, but we highly encourage you to get involved however you can and look for places to donate/support beyond just this list. Look for local grassroots organizations and community organizers to help out in your communities. Always research organizations before you donate to them, to make sure your money is going to the cause)
