The Woman Who Gave Birth to Rabbits

By Phil Plait

Oh: If Isziâs voice sounds familiar, then perhaps you are a Skeptics Guide to the Universe fan. Listen to the intro. As for why she drew that doctor as me, I asked her, and she said it was because my face âwas fun to drawâ. I might disagree, but felt that arguing over it would be splitting hares.
