Episode Jul 6, 2018

In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss what a sincere thank you might sound like, how physiology can precipitate a waning interest in headstands, what it means to be limber, a failed trip to town, stripped bolts & over-tightened lug nuts, how your spouse’s denial can cause car damage, another unconventional use for the butt end of an axe, childish longing for a limp, a crutch or a cast, passing up an invitation to live for free in Puerto Rico, water immersion therapy, more on the flight attendant/stewardess controversy, the truth about chocolate bars & summer, what to do with a husband hoarder, imagining new out-buildings to deal with clutter, the stress of screaming at your children, behind the scenes as John arrives two and a half hours late to a three hour long party, when your mere presence morphs into an imposition, celebrities who claim to be “too busy”, planning for a dog chapel, the ins and outs of starting your own pet cemetery, when poop is too large, catching up with Twin City Typewriter, a creepy Facebook patent, the dangers of shopping for petticoats at an online sex fetish emporium, when no one touches you, paying for human contact, stripping down for the parade, hot clogging on the float, being nude in private, the humiliation of developing boobs, the crux of self acceptance, shedding clothes for money, a recipe for three bean salad, the crispness of cukes, a rational explanation for Todd’s poor shoe choice - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians & friends: Val McCallum [My Other Shoe]; Robert Bryant [Moonwoman Blues]; Brown Trout and the Lunkers with Davey Davis and Rick Davis [Honor Thy Fly].
