A weekly fun chat on an eclectic selection of topics
Sewing
Sewing

This week we talk about the uniting of two fabrics to create a whole better than the sum of its parts - sewing! E Pluribus Unum, that's what we say!

Further talking points include the Tradition of Womenhood, A League of Their Own , awkward pauses, and Mountain Dew Baja Fresh.


Police Horses
Police Horses

This week, we're talking about police horses.  Kathryn wonders, why are they still around?  What are they for? 

 


Tea
Tea

This week we talk about tea! What kinds of tea are there? Why are the British so into tea? What's the deal with Earl Grey tea vis-a-vis bergamot? Wouldn't it be great to not have to brush your teeth? All this and more on this week's show!

  • Bergamot flavoring is derived from the bergamot orange
  • You absolutely have to brush your teeth. It is in no way optional. 

 


Whales
Whales

This week we talk about everyone's favorite extremely large marine mammal: whales!  We learn how baleen works, discuss the role of whale products in our everyday lives, concern ourselves over which whales are the right whales for whaling, and, salaciously, explore the mystery of the whale-mouth-penis-thing!

Perhaps more importantly, we talk about the Svengali-like grip that cake has taken on our society. We love it, yet keep it always out of reach.

Also, the name of the Carvel ice cream cake whale is Fudgie, not Wally.


Sail Boats
Sail Boats

This week, we're talking sailboats.  Did you know they work?  We weren't sold until we went to the ol' white board.
