From time to time, someone from the media tracks down Ken Johnson, aka The PeeMan for an interview. Here are a few recent ones....and some oldies, too!
During the Summer of 2023, Zachary Crocket, Host of "The Economics of Everyday Things" invited the PeeMan to be a guest on his podcast. He arranged for a linkup between his studio in California and one at Husson University here in Maine. Take a listen to the result! Animal Urine - Freakonomics
