Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss a new descriptive term for The Scleroderma Citrinum (aka Pigskin Poison Puffball or the Common Earth Ball), their dreams of securing hygienic microphone wind screens to replace the scary ones in the studio, coping with raw vegetables, why people put food on their bodies just to have it licked off, a recipe for identifying your own bad breath, poop doodles, Emily’s getting the tractor stuck on a rock, how to make a copper hearth, whether or not to pay your Dad to drink coffee, another rash of creepy clowns, subjective ridicule aimed at fake walls & Kristina’s history as founding member of a mime troupe, a shout out to the big boy named Larry Streeter, getting all wrapped up in the injustice of it all, throwing yourself against the wall as a way of life, burning a list of everything that you like about a person you hate, humans as perfect crystals, the challenges of erasing your brain, going too far with forgiveness, a phone call from the Vermont’s best fiddler, Kristina’s success at driving away the Tannahill Weavers, whether or not to talk to people with ear buds in, a discussion of prows, bulkheads & figureheads, the peculiar condition of having nothing to contribute, a warning not to drive with fertilizer, a riddle about 4th class roads, the current dearth of bubble wrap, a foliage season that both oppresses & uplifts - and so much more!
