The first season kicks off June 11 with the release of “Humpback
Whale Song of the Summer
,” which explores the “culture” of the
Western Pacific humpback whale and how these creatures create their
“song of the year.” Other episodes in the first season cover subjects
ranging from the art and evolution of children’s lying to scuba diving
in a pyramid in Sudan.
