Episode Mar 17, 2017

Co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss “science-y space” vs. “beautiful space”, Maga the celestial pygmy warrior astrologer, charting a collision course for your shadow realm, finding mummified toads in the house, more cat misbehavior, reminiscing about clocks with hands, a midnight equine rescue operation, reaching an arm’s length into the rear of a horse, pretending to follow a conversation when you have no idea what the person is talking about, your kids making you feel stupid, a confession about proselytizing spiritual “truths” to your parents, running out of firewood during a blizzard, substituting off-road diesel for home heating oil in a pinch, a story of horse-logging, losing your magic, shooting pictures of your yard, fancy-pants towns in Vermont and their inverse relationship to telephone poles, holding back swear words, a missing train, what it means to go retrograde, listening to Emily’s stomach (again), karma, charmed lives, and two kinds of people, hippie parents & their conservative children, water buffalo identification, new uses for forks, how to make a paperclip screwdriver, avoiding personal growth, objecting to the word “interesting”, looking back to our first dreams and goals in life, being intimidated by people’s reputations, the hows & whys of artistic-emotional-basket-cases, sounding waspy, getting over your fear of singing, too many ski runs & too many GoPros, the sadness of big blue screens, the old farmer who lost his chores, handling wood until you die, the smaller part of a person, missing the party - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians & friends: Charlie Shew and Pat Jones [Snow]; Rick Ceballos [Arepika/Tiger and the Comet]; Brian Clark [Cairns]
