Episode Apr. 29, 2016

Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss the perils of getting your 89 year old mom into a Toyota Tundra pickup truck, reading poetry aloud as an antidote for technophobia, a conflicted response to watching an animated video “walk through” of sex reassignment surgery, fear of flying as a metaphor for life, an argument about whether to donate cans to the humane society or the kids baseball team, running out of ideas, contemplating a shower stall music video, letting go of sheep, the dangers of throwing gum out the car window revisited, repurposing pill boxes, the ordinary ups and downs of sibling angst, turning human bodies into trees, an introduction to chatbots, the dysfunctionality of caring - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians and friends: Highwoods String Band [Rock About My Saro Jane]; Bow Thayer [10,000 Beer Cans]; Robert Resnik [Whistle Set].
