Episode Mar 10, 2017

Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss 3-CPO & repercussions pertaining to the first generation of robot names, calling the whole world dumb, indifference as a way of relating, a dating dream, an unlikely threesome, using ancient exclamations such as “Fi” to chase away stuff, being caught in limbo between towns, gossiping at town meeting, an unexpected ramification of John being on the select board, typically inadequate microphone technique at public meetings, a few unfortunate cases of bullying, remembering peach trees in the back yard, novel ways of getting exercise in the winter, healing through sheep, how Lisa took the sick lamb, wrestling down & flipping uncooperative ewes, the connection between blatant frontal attack & a metaphor for life, looking for Robbie Strindberg, the joys of editing yourself, setting up headphone mixes, reminiscing about gold stars, Cousin Steve’s all night drive from Brooklyn, the flawed concept of “identical cousins”, bad long-term psychological effects from growing up with jingles & sitcom theme songs, a lime green onesie, skiing in costumes, changing your personality with clothes, vehemently eschewing stripes and polka dots, looking deeper into the millennial generation’s spiritual mission, a border patrol officer’s sneering challenge, visiting Canada’s government on a day trip, when is too much worship of the “celebrity-in-chief, some baffling text message abbreviations, being stumped by an I.Q. test, totally misunderstanding wombats and many other low-profile animals, arranging horn sections - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians & friends: The Cousins Project [Rescue Me]; Stefan Lundin [Aldrig nansin foll jag ner i bon]; Kristina Stykos [Remembering]
