Episode Oct 13, 2017

In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss banishing negativity for an hour, whether or not Kristina can identify her friends’ cars, being crushed down into the crustacean pile of nothingness, how to bypass a popular book, coming to terms with the Salem witch trials, terror & hope, a strange problem with a chicken named Giselle, fun facts about celebrity children, more on life form hierarchy, a warning about ball point pens, eating with dirty hands, trying to keep track of salmonella, a new direction for stuffed animals, the uselessness of trying to invent things, what happens when you get the local fire department involved with a Haunted Forest, improvising rhythm instruments, soliciting donut donations, unpacking this year’s Tunbridge Fair coin drop, Emily’s missed opportunity to trick Kristina into wearing a dress, imagining an alternate universe Disneyland, standing up to oppression, feeling unworthy to be alive, the school dilemma, reviving your blog, an in-depth exploration of wrapping paper, finding a mindless balance with the president, passing judgment on people’s yawns, a depressing look at dating statistics, revelatory details on the viability of sperm, a well organized run-in with foxes, cooking outside, the story of a magical gift, chipmunk taxidermy, planning a field trip to the Snowsville General Store, questions about the substitute museum curator’s decision to bring toddlers to work, a mystery can opener - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians & friends: Carl Goulet [Prisoner of Conscience]; Robert Bryant [Little Red Flower]; Charlie Shew and Pat Jones [Marie-Line].
