We're tackling another famous relic from our own podcast logo and the only topic with its own emoji, the Moai! Did the Rapa Nui people "walk" these enormous statues to their places around the island with advanced anti-gravity technology given to them by ancient aliens? Hey— probably not!

But there are some genuine mysteries surrounding how and why these works of art were made, and more ominously... why did they abruptly stop making them? Was an Italian plumber involved? We'll never know for sure!
