What We’ll Do

Attention dinosaur nerds and science stans! Join Dustin Growick, host of the YouTube channel The Dinosaur Show, and leader of Atlas Obscura's Dinos and Dunes in the Colorado Desert trip, and Kristina Gustovich, middle school teacher, geologist, improviser, and museum megastan, for an interactive, adults-only dinosaur party.

Each live, Friday night session of Dino 101 will have a different adult-focused, dinosaur-inspired theme, replete with a bingo board drinking game.

Since we'll be participating from the safety of our homes, drinking and drawing and learning is very encouraged! Grab your favorite pens and/or colored pencils, because the very first thing we'll do is intro the Dino of the Day. At the end of the adventure we'll zoom around the room viewing your tipsy paleoart masterpieces. Next, it's time for everyone's favorite game, Dino or Not a Dino?!, in which we'll put your dinosaur knowledge AND bullshit detector to the test. We'll then mix in a mini-scavenger hunt and some interactive and irreverent paleontology trivia (e.g. Did T. rex have feathers?, Which Jurassic Park movie was the worst?, How big was a Brontosaurus member?)

Part party, part class, 100% adventure—come nerd out with the Dino 101 quaranteam as we prove why dinosaurs are the greatest group of animals to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Don't miss any of our upcoming shows:

December 4: Greatest Dinosaur Movies of All-Time

From Gorgo to Jurassic Park to The Land Before Time, we're reviewing the greatest dinosaur movies ever made, all with the help of dino super fan Steven Ray Morris, creator of the podcast See Jurassic Right.

December 11: Whales Aren't Dinosaurs But the Trajectory of Their Evolution Is F***ing Bonkers So Let's Talk About It

Dinosaurs were the first major group of animals to completely abandon life in water and live solely on land. Millions of years later, a group of mammals soon-to-be-known as whales said f*** it and went back in. Extinct whale researcher Dr. Robert Boessenecker joins us to discuss this ridiculous transition.

December 18: Dinosaur Zookeeping

What's it take to keep dinosaurs happy in captivity? From emus and vultures to falcons and secretary birds, San Diego Zoo's Rick Schwartz joins us to discuss what it's like to work with and care for the closest thing we've got to Jurassic Park.
