Episode May 17, 2019

In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss Emily’s weird problem with her sinuses, a lack of burping function, how it feels to be six, several reasons why the illuminati might like New Zealand, a comparison between pretzels and rebar, processed food and weight gain, an old box of Pop Tarts, the relative merits of various lawn ornaments, gnome realism, fake wishing wells, the history of gazing balls, Frog Prince sculpture, using Facebook for venting during coffee breaks, when large becomes Venti, a disagreement about Stowe’s traffic signals, crashing a chiropractor’s conference, a brush with fate and an encounter with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., exorbitant ticket prices for Jacob Dylan, taking a foray into the criminal life, confusion around the word “camaraderie”, a deep dive into pellucidity and limpidity, luminosity and mirth, damaging your eyes with books, exploring the forth-class portion of Harolyn Hill Road, hearing children scream, a look at older dams, towns that were flooded, the glory days of Gaysville, the mysterious “Bethel White” granite quarry, passing through America, a sighting of Lady and Bill at the Tunbridge General Store, donuts and a giant sausage dog with tiny legs, crying because of a chain link pen, the BS of Emily’s dogs and subsequent porcupine quill update, organizing blind cats, a cupcake and scones compendium for future analysis - and so much more!

Featuring music from Vermont musicians & friends: Val McCallum [Charlie’s Coal]; Michael Oakland [Grand Design]; Will Patton [Anna’s Waltz].
