Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss a possible connection between dreidels and dirndls, revisiting the color of Martians, a disagreement about wombats, awakening out of great deception, lack of connection as the root cause of addiction, why we love bells, employing techniques of concentration for use in public bathrooms, outhouses as a better alternative, how a dearth of bushes and a lightning strike nearly took down Wilder, Kristina’s adventures living in a shack, a sudden gas station reopening, the most magic store of Chelsea, the phrase “it so is”, the complex world of office supply stores, a special gift card from Staples for the girl who has everything, building forts for gerbils complete with marble chutes, news ideas for the laboring woman including use of a virtual reality headset, Emily’s ingenious, homemade flash cards, a mean secret and much sought after redemption, self directed birth, replacing eggs with bananas, an ancient northern herding call & its Youtube champion, weed killer and other noxious ingredients in breakfast cereal, managing the food on your kids’ plates, driving an extra hour to save money, a bad trip at the grocery store, one person’s expose and epiphany about mantras, losing words, how so many interruptions rewire the brain - and so much more!
