275: Sex and Our Health, 3/22/2019

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 58:58

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small At its best, sex isn't just fun — it's good for our health. It can relieve stress, enhance our mood — even offer a bit of a workout! But sex can also be painful, both physically and emotionally; it can open the door to injury and disease; and it can reflect, or even magnify, changes that we’re not willing to face. In this episode, we explore sex and our health. We hear stories about PrEP, asexuality, the online world of NoFap, and enjoying sex as you age.

2019-03-22 Naturally Wired: Getting Outside in the Digital Age

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 58:59


Host: Greg Dalton

Phil Ginsburg, General Manager, San Francisco Recreation and Parks
Rebecca Johnson, Co-Director, Citizen Science at the California Academy of Sciences
Nooshin Razani, Pediatrician and Founder/Director of the Center for Nature and Health at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland

This program was recorded at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on March 15, 2019.

In an increasingly urbanized and digitized world, many people live separated from nature and may not deeply understand how climate impacts them around them.  

“I grew up in a great little suburban community where we had a lot of access to open space that I didn't really appreciate until I left the city,” says Rebecca Johnson, co-director of Citizen Science at the California Academy of Sciences. “There was always nature around us and my parents encouraged us [… ] to be outside, not sitting inside to pay attention and to be curious and ask questions.”

Johnson helps design programs that connect people to nature wherever they are, and does not completely shun technology in the process. In particular, she uses an online platform called iNaturalist that enlists citizen scientists to make biodiversity observations.

“Speaking as a scientist, those observations are really important for understanding and doing really good science and furthering conservation,” she explains, “but at the same time, this tool is a way to foster curiosity and… connect you to a community of people.”

iNaturalist is a useful tool for documenting and heightening awareness of climate change. And yet research has shown that all the benefits engaging more deeply with nature are enhanced when people leave their phones behind.

“If you take an urban person and you put them in the forest, within a few minutes you’ll see improvement in heart rate in blood pressure,” says Nooshin Razani, Director of the Center for Nature and Health at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. “Around 20 minutes you’ll see improvements in attention span, after an hour you’ll see more physical activity, and then 90 minutes they've shown that depression goes down.”

A pediatrician by practice, Razani prescribes time outdoors – without phones – to her patients and their families as preventive medicine. “The emotional attachment that happens between a parent and a child when a parent actually looks a child in the eye and mirrors their facial expression -- that whole interaction is key to the emotional development of the child,” she explains. “When both parties are fixated on the screen instead of each other there is a loss of what is not optional, what is actually essential to the development of a human being.”

As General Manager of San Francisco’s Parks Department, Phil Ginsburg has made it his mission to ensure that every child has a nature-based experience every day. “The generation of children that are growing up today is the most sedentary generation of kids in our history,” he laments. “The impact to mental health, the impact on creativity, relationship building – all these things happen easier in nature without a phone.”

Like Nooshin Razani, Ginsburg works with underserved communities to ensure that the city’s park system is more equitable and inviting to an increasingly urbanized population. “Nature is not about the once a year trip to Yosemite or to Glacier [National Park],” Ginsburg emphasizes, “nature is in your city, it’s in your backyard, it’s where we are.”

Most recent piece in this series:

Spill the Tea (#1521)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00

6196131680_a97be54450_m_small In British English, the exercise known as push-ups in the United States goes by the name press-ups. The Spanish term is lagartijas, a lagartija being a small lizard that sometimes moves in a similar way. The English word alligator comes from the related Spanish term el lagarto, which means the lizard.

Debra, who teaches eighth graders in San Antonio, Texas, says some of them use the expression spill the tea meaning to spill the beans or share gossip. The earliest version of this phrase, which appears in print in the early 1990s, was spill the T, in which the letter T stands for truth. The phrase was popularized by the TV show RuPaul's Drag Race, and a similar use of T for truth appears in John Berendt's 1994 bestseller Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Jonathan, who lives in Dallas, Texas, but is originally from Prince Edward Island, Canada, where he often heard the phrase fill your boots, an injunction that means help yourself. Variants include dig in and fill your boots, eat up and fill your boots, and muck in and fill your boots.

Craig from Helena, Montana, wonders about the etymology of pop meaning a carbonated beverage. Depending on which part of the country you're from, you might also call this drink a soda or a coke.

Quiz Guy John Chaneski proffers a puzzle he calls F-Takeoffs, which involves removing the initial letter F from a word to get an entirely different word. For example, if John orders some lumberjack tools by sending some scanned, printed orders over a phone line, what two words apply?

Kyle from Euless, Texas, wonders about the phrase I don't cotton to this meaning I don't agree with this. It originated in the textile industry, where cotton is prepared to adhere to another fabric. In the same way, some agricultural terms have given rise to useful metaphors in English; the expressions tough row to hoe, aftermath, and broadcast all originated in the language of farming.

Wendy from San Diego, California, is curious about the soda fountain treat known in Rhode Island and parts of Massachusetts as a cabinet. Elsewhere it's called a milk shake, a frappe, a velvet, or a frost.

In her 1958 memoir Beloved Infidel, F. Scott Fitzgerald's lover Sheilah Graham recalls the famous author's distaste for exclamation points, likening the use of this punctuation to "laughing at your own joke." Some have proposed that a good word for the overuse of exclamation marks is bangorrhea, bang being an old printer's term for that punctuation mark, and -rrhea being a stem that comes from a Greek word meaning to flow.

Years ago, Derek from Omaha, Nebraska, adopted the greeting Howdy, but his wife says it sounds too uncultured. In a 2012 paper in the Journal of English Linguistics by Lauren Hall Lew and Nola Stephens describe Howdy as a term that is enregistered as rural and Southern -- in other words, country talk, and therefore supposedly unsophisticated.

Don't break my plate or saw off my bench just yet is a colorful way of saying I'll be back. It's somewhat like the phrase he hung up his spoon, referring to someone who has died.

The Italian phrase Non si frigge mica con l’acqua literally translates as We don't fry with water around here, and means "We don't do things halfway." Other Italian idioms involving food translate as to be like parsley (meaning that something is everywhere), like cabbage as an afternoon snack (meaning that something is out of place), eat soup or jump out the window (meaning "take it or leave it"), and don't eat the egg in the hen's body (meaning "don't count on something that's not certain").

Denise in Panama City, Florida, is trying to recall a word for the fear of not knowing what happens in the world after one dies. It's a more elevated term than FOMO, the fear of missing out. The fear of death itself is thanatophobia, from the Greek root thanatos, which also gives us euthanasia.

John says that many of the older patients in his Northeast Tennessee orthopedics clinic will refer to habitual activity as occurring of the morning or of the evening. The vastly more common versions of these phrases in the South and South Midlands of the United States are of a morning and of an evening.

The verb duffifie is defined in the Scots National Dictionary as "to lay down a bottle on its side for some time, after its contents have been poured out, that it may be completely drained of the few drops remaining in it."

Sherilyn in Indianapolis, Indiana, says when she was rambunctious as a child, her grandfather, who is of German descent, would ask if she had a hummel. In German, the word Hummel means bee, and a fidgety youngster might be asked Hast Du Hummeln im Hintern? meaning Do you have bumblebees in your behind? The German word Hintern, meaning behind, is related to the English words hind and hinterland. In Germany, such a child is also called a Zappelphilipp, from an 1845 poem about a boy who couldn't sit still.

If you have an aversion to human company and a love of solitude, you have apanthropy, from Greek words that mean away from humans.

OHR058: OHR Presents: "The Honey Dewdrops", 3/25/2019

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59


Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, neo-folk family troubadours “The Honey Dewdrops” perform live at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas.  Also, interviews with this talented husband & wife duo.

Based out of Baltimore, MD, the Honey Dewdrops continue a long line of husband and wife duos making beautiful music together.  Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish now reside in Baltimore, but have strong connecting roots to the music in their home state of Virginia.  Their popularity continues to grow, as they have performed at MerleFest and the Redwing Roots Music Festival.  Instrumentation is classic Americana and includes guitar, banjo, and harmonica. Coupled with spectacular vocal harmonies, their original material remains true to both traditional and contemporary forms of American roots music.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark original Bobby Hayes performing the traditional classic “Pretty Polly,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

From his series entitled “Fine Fiddlers of the Ozarks,” old time and Ozark fiddle aesthete Roy Pilgrim profiles the legendary Ozark fiddler Max Collins.  This installment features archival recordings of the classic fiddle tunes ”Railroad Runs Through Georgia, Old Number 9, Whistling Rufus, and Lonesome Hill.”

EE 19-12: Spelt Flour Makes The Best Pita Bread, 3/22/2019

From WFIU | Part of the Earth Eats series | 29:00


"One of the things you’ll notice about spelt is that it comes together immediately. Much more quickly than wheat does."

Our guest today Is Eric Schedler of Muddy Fork Bakery, and he’s teaching us how to make pita bread, using his stone-ground spelt flour.

If you are a regular customer at the Bloomington Farmers’ Market, or the Winter Market, you are probably familiar with Muddy Fork Bakery. They’re an artisanal bakery here in Southern Indiana, featuring beautifully shaped loaves of bread baked to perfection in a wood-fired brick oven. They also offer flaky croissants, buttery, hot pretzels, and in the summertime, freshly baked pizzas including a bacon and egg breakfast pizza.

Earth Eats heads out to their professional bakery, located on a country road a few miles east of town.

And harvest public media has a report on the worker shortage for the meatpacking industry due to changes in immigration policies.

Revealprx_small This episode originally was broadcast July 14, 2018. We’ve updated this show to include a secret recording that Reveal received of a 2017 Independent Petroleum Association of America meeting. Oil executives are heard discussing David Bernhardt, now deputy secretary of the Interior and a former industry lobbyist. In the recording, the executives call Bernhardt a close friend and rejoice over their unprecedented access. President Donald Trump has nominated Bernhardt to replace Ryan Zinke as department head, and confirmation hearings will be held this week. Throughout the rest of the show, we examine how Trump’s “energy dominance” policy has weakened protections for Alaskan villagers coping with climate change, migratory birds and Native American artifacts.

Poetry That Heals (half)

From With Good Reason | Part of the With Good Reason: Weekly Half Hour Long Episodes series | 29:00

Anatomy-poster-1004x618_small Poetry and medicine are seemingly different occupations. But pediatrician and poet Irène Mathieu says both science and poetry use language to understand deeper truths about the human condition. Mathieu’s latest collection, "Grande Marronage", examines the lives of Creole women of color in New Orleans. Plus: In college, Lauren Bylenok was fascinated with genetic engineering. Now, she manipulates language, not DNA. Her recent book turns familiar forms into poetic laboratory experiments.

Are We Alone?

From Philosophy Talk | Part of the Philosophy Talk series | 53:59

If there is intelligent life beyond Earth, how would that change life ON Earth?


News that life might exist or have existed on Mars or somewhere else in our universe excites many. But should we really be happy to hear that news? What are the philosophical implications of the possibility of extraterrestrial life? If life can blossom in our own cosmic backyard, then that means that the universe is most likely saturated with life forms. And if that’s the case, why haven’t we found any evidence of other civilizations? Is it because all civilizations are prone to suicidal destruction at a certain point in their development? If so, how might we avoid this fate? The Philosophers search for life with Paul Davies from Arizona State University, author of The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for Alien Intelligence.

Living Planet: Walk the Walk


Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.



Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green


The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.


Canada's First Nations vs. tar sands pipeline


Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

Barriers and borders and frontiers (oh my!)

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 59:00

E04d1467-675a-4aeb-a969-b5df5d3f5f2c_small A reckless wall-building era runs round the 21st century globe. Reckless next to the New England farmer in Robert Frost’s famous poem. He’s mending his wall in a spring like this one, well aware of “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, That wants it down.” “Before I built a wall,” he says, “I’d ask to know / What I was walling in or walling out, And to whom I was like to give offence.” Not so along our Southwest border that President Trump wants to fortify. Not so in the intimate geography of Israel-Palestine. Not so in the England of John Lanchester’s nightmare novel, called The Wall, post Brexit. The coastal rim of the sceptered isle is barricaded to the sky to keep nameless Others from vaulting in.

Irresistible force meets immovable object this hour: the argument is that the push outward to the frontier that defined American history and character—self-reliant wagon families heading west, the American knighthood of quiet cowboys, our “empire of freedom,” as Jefferson put it – is crashing on President Trump’s in-blocking Wall along our 2-thousand-mile border with Mexico. At the checkpoints the collision is ugly. In the cruelty to children and families, it’s grotesque. In American politics it’s explosive. But what if it cuts deepest into the ways we Americans see ourselves? On both sides of that un-built Trump border wall this hour we’re getting a miserable migration story with the Mexican writer Valeria Luiselli. And we’ll get to the novel that John Lanchester drew out of a bad dream about a sky-high wall encircling what’s left of England. But the American historian Greg Grandin strikes the keynote, from his new book about us, titled The End of The Myth. It’s a modern revision of the idea that the frontier made us who we are.
