With the recent spate of Tiny Earthquakes* and subduction activity in the Pacific Northwest, we take a look at some of the different ways volcanic activity still shapes and shifts the earth beneath us. Also: Google pays $6,006.13, Parsey McParseface, the UAE wants to build a mountain, Germany’s extra electricity, Eric the First British Robot, the Selfie Toaster, moron tourists and baby bison, and more Tori Amos talk than any other science podcast you’ll hear all month. It’s a show the size of Delaware! Enjoy!

*Yes, I realize now that Tori Amos’s album is called “Little Earthquakes,” not “Tiny Earthquakes.” We’ll all have to get over that.
