Episode 14 of 489 episodes

Who doesn’t love insects and spiders? The woman in this episode, that’s who. Learn about the joys of the great outdoors in this episode. Slow Dialog: 1:12 Explanations: 3:12 Fast Dialog: 14:31 Judith: Ahh! Get it off me! Murad: It’s just a tiny spider. Don’t freak out. Judith: I hate spiders. What is this place you’ve brought me to? Murad: It’s one of the most beautiful spots in the world and we’ll be staying here tonight. Judith: You mean we’ll be roughing it in this cabin? Is that a cockroach that just ran across the floor? Murad: Maybe. In this place, you’ll see some of the most amazing things. It’s the next best thing to sleeping in the open. Judith: Great. Can you close that window? There are flies and moths everywhere, and I think those were bees and wasps just outside the door. Murad: They won’t bother you if you don’t bother them. Listen to that! We can fall asleep to the sound of crickets. Judith: Ouch! I think I’ve just been bitten by a giant mosquito. Murad: You’re imagining things. Look at those butterflies just outside the window. Don’t you think they’re beautiful? Judith: Do you know what would look beautiful to me right now? A really big mosquito net! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
