Exciting news! Next week on Moment of Um is Snake Week, where every episode will explore a different question about our slithery friends. Not very excited about that? Feeling maybe…a bit apprehensive? We understand. To help us get to the bottom of this fear of snakes (and maybe even overcome it?) we reached out to wildlife ecologist Thaddeus McRae.

Got a question that you’re afraid is very difficult? Send it to us at BrainsOn.org/contact, and we’ll help scare up an answer.
