We’ve all seen it in Emoji form, but did you know that the famous statue heads are effigies built by native people of Easter Island!? Indeed, the Rapa Nui built over 900 moai statues on the island of the same name long long ago. But what secrets does this island hold? What techniques did the native Rapa Nui use to move this massive monoliths of stone? And does it involve...aliens!? Come voyage across the Pacific, dear listeners, as Andy and Art explore all the wonders of Easter Island!
Andy and Art are captured once again by the titular Mr. Bunker - how did he fool them this time?
In the second segment, Andy and Art give you, the listeners, an uninterrupted presentation of their research into Easter Island..
Finally, Andy and Art discuss Easter Island at length. They also discuss the sailing techniques, the high school physics bridge competition, how they would make effigies in their likeness, and so much more!
