Cattitude - Episode 95 Cats Are A Liquid
Play • 24 min
What you say? That's right, cats are a liquid! This week Michelle Fern welcomes Rebecca Donnelly, author of the children's book Cats Are A Liquid. Inspired by an Ig Nobel Prize-winning investigation of how cats behave like liquids, this book (including back matter on the states of matter) introduces some of the physical properties of liquids— they adapt to fit a container, they flow like fluids—and celebrates cats in all their flowing, furry glory!

Fight the New Drug
Nicholas Kristof: Award-winning Journalist & Political Commentator
_Disclaimer: Fight the New Drug is a non-religious and non-legislative awareness and education organization. While the individual in this interview discusses legislatively-related issues, Fight the New Drug is non-legislative._ Trigger Warning: Graphic descriptions of sex trafficking, abuse, rape, child sexual abuse materials, drug use, and suicide ideation are discussed during this conversation. Listener discretion is advised. Nicholas Kristof is an American journalist, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and columnist for the _New York Times_ since 2001. His investigative opinion column published on December 4, 2020, titled, “The Children of Pornhub,” shocked and educated many people around the world because it gave visibility to the stories of victims of image-based sexual abuse and child sexual abuse material who have had their violation shared on porn sites and social media platforms. The outcry in response to the article resulted in porn giant Pornhub purging their platform of unverified videos, deleting over 10 million videos from the site—but the battle won't end there. Kristof’s coverage of these issues continues the work of many journalists, advocates, and survivors in uncovering the dark side of the internet that most people do not want to think about, and exposes the implications of directly and indirectly supporting porn sites with user-uploaded content. Listen to podcast host Garrett Jonsson talk with Nicholas about the ugly side of the porn industry, what has happened since Nicholas Kristof’s bold opinion columns were published, and what he expects he’ll do to continue to uncover the world of sexual exploitation. _Note: We are grateful that Nicholas Kristof took time out of his busy schedule to speak with us and give our listeners more insight into this topic. In the limited amount of time we were able to meet, we did our best to get through as many questions as we could, discussing questions we knew our listeners would have._ You can find Nicholas’ initial article, “The Children of Pornhub,” here: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/04/opinion/sunday/pornhub-rape-trafficking.html?searchResultPosition=3 His follow-up article published five days later titled, “An Uplifting Update, on the Terrible World of Pornhub,” can be found here: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/09/opinion/pornhub-news-child-abuse.html Photo and articles credit: _The New York Times__._ Click here to learn more about the guest, and access the resources discussed in this episode.

Email a voicemail message to celticpodcast@gmail.com Nan Griffin emailed: "Hi, I see your other podcasts on there and your music too and was wondering if your podcast, Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, will show up on Spotify anytime soon? Please advise and thanks" Georgy Grigoryev asked the same question. I told him the same answer I told Nan. He replied: "oh dang! it's a terrible decision from their side! Thanks for the podacst anyway! My favourite one and not like "oh I don't know they are all great" but truly honestly the most loved podcast!" Teddy Zeitlin emailed: "I just found your podcast. I am in the USA. In my 70s. I always loved folk music. I always found the sound of Irish music to be so comforting, so down to earth. I was in Dublin a couple of years ago, and loved it. Ireland is one of the places I hope to be able to visit again. COVID-19 go away!!! A couple of years ago while taking my then 8 year old granddaughter to Hebrew school, I put on a local Irish music show in the car. She loved the music. Glad I was able to pass that on to her. She plays violin. Hopefully one day the fiddle." * (Gene) Brewer replied to the Celtic Music Magazine: "Yes, I did retrieve the free tracks and have installed them into my library, which continues to grow. Thank you very much. A few of my favorite bands/artists that I know names for are: Slainte (out of Seattle I believe but think they has broke up) Celtic Fiddle Festival (Kevin Burke is tremendous on the fiddle) Chieftains Altman There’s lots of artists I like but I don’t know or recall exactly their names. Right now I am living in a small SoCal desert town and there is no Celtic music scene here to my knowledge. this why I stream a lot of music. I’m retired so my entertainment funds are limited. so I look for the most for the least. Some people call it cheap, I call it frugal. However I’ll be getting the bumper sticker offer to help out the cause. My heritage is Irish (Ussery from County Cork), English, German and Cherokee Indian. My internet is flaky and sometimes real slow (DSL) like last night. Had trouble streaming the podcast. Looking into getting a better ISP."
