Why are fairy tales so powerful?

Quick question: who wrote the story for the movie FROZEN? Obviously it was a Hollywood screenwriter working for Disney, right? Nope! Jennifer Lee may have written the SCRIPT (she also directed the movie too, becoming the first woman to write/direct a film grossing over ONE BILLION DOLLARS), but the STORY was written in 1844 by Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen. His tale THE SNOW QUEENenthralled families in Europe --- nearly 100 years before Walt Disney made his first animated movie, and over 125 years before Jennifer Lee was born!

How do ears work?
00:13:52
Thanks so much for listening to our podcast, WHO SMARTED? But here's a silly question... HOW are you able to listen to it? With your EARS of course! But how do your ears work? How do three tiny bones in your ear help amplify sound and translate sound waves to your brain? And how/why does your hearing affect your balance? Get ready to hang out with the three smallest bones in the human body - The Ossicles - on today's episode about Ears! Your kids will discover how 3 tiny ear bones, THE OSSICLES, work together to create sound. When your eardrum vibrates in response to sound, it causes these ear bones to move in response. This amplifies the vibrations in the fluid in your inner ear, which touches thousands of nerve endings, triggering electrical impulses your brain then turns into "hearing". They will learn that the ear is also responsible for your sense of balance, which relies on there, tiny, liquid filled tubes in your inner ear - the vestibular system. And they'll discover you are more likely to fall when you have a cold because being sick causes a disruption in the inner ear fluid, which leads to dizziness. So no tightrope walking when you have a cold - just like we tell our friend Terry Tightrope in the episode.

How does your immune system work?
00:12:30
No one likes being sick. The fever, fatigue, and the nasty stuff that comes out of you is NO FUN! But how much of what happens to you when you're sick is caused by GERMS, and how much is actually your body's IMMUNE SYSTEM helping you? Take a journey with us into your IMMUNE SYSTEM on today's super sick episode of Who Smarted? as we go to Club Gut to find out how it all works. Your kid will learn that having a fever is your body fighting off germs! By raising your body temperature, a fever heats and kills some germs and stuns and slows down other germs, buying time for your body's immune system to attack them! They will also learn that different types of immune cells take different action, depending on what's required: Some gobble up invasive bacteria, others emit antibodies that stop invaders from multiplying, while other inject germs with toxins that cause them to explode! And they'll discover that when stuff comes out of either end of your body from being sick, that's your body's way of literally ejecting toxins from your system. So, as much as it stinks, it's actually just your body doing its job. Some bonus info about your skin: Your skin is actually a part of your immune system, and is your body's first line of defense. Besides being literal armor your skin cells also perform specialized functions that neutralize infections bacteria, so it is an active immune organ. All that defending against the environment takes its toll, and your skin sheds around thousands of dead skin cells every hour! That adds up to about 9 pounds of dead skin cells every year, so a family of four is shedding around 3 pounds of dead skin cells every month! So yes, though we can't say MOST of the dust in your house is dead skin, it is definitely true that a large percentage of the dust in your home is actually dead skin cells. And that's not gross at all... Nope. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

How did mirrors come from volcanoes?
00:12:48
Mirror, mirror on the wall...why do I see my reflection at all? On this 12 minute episode of Who Smarted? our Evil Queen will learn how her Magic Mirror works, why we all look different in photos than in the mirror, the science behind how mirrors are made, and the surprising history of the first mirrors! Your kids will discover that the first mirrors were made from rocks - yes, rocks! Specifically obsidian, which is a shiny volcanic rock that can be polished to a glass-like finish. They will learn that modern mirrors are mostly made by spraying aluminum onto glass. And they will learn the reason your face often looks weird in photos is simply because you spend more time looking in mirrors, which flip your image. A photo is actually truer to what other people actually see -- but because you rarely see yourself that way it 'flips you out.'

Why do some people pee when they laugh?
00:13:37
Laughter is a great way to release stress, bond with friends & family, and just have fun. It's also why some people end up accidentally WETTING themselves! On this episode of WHO SMARTED?, we'll visit a disastrous rehearsal of Romeo & Juliet -- where the problem isn't that Juliet forgot her lines -- it's that she has a bad case of the giggles and cannot stop LAUGHING. Your kids will learn how laughing can be a way to shield yourself from troubling emotions which is why people sometimes laugh at bad news, or when someone trips and falls. Of course, sometimes someone falling is just plain funny. They'll also learn why laughing can sometimes make you lose control of your bodily functions! Because laughing causes a very fast contraction and release of abdominal muscles, it can actually confuse your bladder - making you pee! And they'll learn that people are more likely to laugh in a group than alone - furthering the theory that laughing evolved partially as a way to bond people together -- just like the Cavemen in today's episode!
