Donovan talks about how he’s been losing weight and wonders if that’s the reason he’s been in a depressive mood lately. Though losing weight is a good thing, there may be scientific evidence that depression can be a result due to an estrogen dump from the fat cells. No, he’s not teaching science in this episode. Rather, he’s trying to figure out how to get the joy back in his life.
Samuel Lewis is back with another Weird File segment, this time about dolphins and LSD!

- Giving LSD To Dolphins Doesn’t Help Us Communicate With Them | IFLScience — Ed Annunziata, the creator of Sega’s Ecco the Dolphin series, once tweeted that while he himself has never taken LSD, he did draw inspiration from the work of neuroscientist John C. Lilly when conceptualizing his cosmic cetaceans. Back in the 1960s, Lilly ran a NASA-funded research unit where humans attempted to communicate with dolphins. Somewhere along the line, LSD got thrown into the mix, a researcher became sexually involved with a dolphin, and things generally got a bit weird.
