Previously on EarBurner: The D Magazine Podcast, our first season ended on a cliffhanger. Tim had been assimilated by the Borg Collective after he shot J.R. for saying Rachel’s name at his wedding. Zac was left alone at Table No. 1 of the Old Monk, realizing as he read from Leaves of Grass that his trusted compatriot has been the mysterious Heisenberg all along and yelling plaintively, “We have to go back, Kate. We have to go back.”
Of course, we can’t go back. So onwards and upwards we head to Season 2 with the return Harrison Edell, senior director of living collections at the Dallas Zoo. He stopped by to talk about — among other topics, including dolphin rape — the recent controversy surrounding the zoo’s plans to relocate six African elephants from the drought-stricken country of Swaziland to southern Dallas.
