In this episode, I share the story of our rescue pup coming upon an American toad. Gratefully Jolee didn’t pounce for the kill, the fate of cave crickets, though we’re grateful for her finesse. Bringing a curiosity— do cave crickets benefit the garden?

This episode starts with a chat about an old-time saying, “March Comes in Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb.” Or is it “In Like a Lamb and Out Like a Lion?” They imply a balance in weather, a balance in life.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
