WFL 32: The Hard-Working Naked Mole Rats At The Toronto Zoo With Ali Vella-Irving
Play • 25 min
Naked Mole Rats can freak people out by their looks; however, they are a very interesting species as they build intricate sets of tunnels and rooms that have specific purposes; they have a queen of their colony; and, they may benefit human health in the future. How. You ask? Well, you will have to listen to my interview with Ali Vella-Irving to find out.    Ali tells me all about the naked mole rats at the Toronto Zoo as we watch them move quickly within their clear acrylic tunnels working away like they always do. Come and take a listen with us.

Gimme Shelter: Happy Birthday Molly
It’s April 1944 in Illinois. Molly McIntire is gearing up for the big 1-0 when a new arrival comes to town. In book four, Molly gets new roommate— a refugee from London named Emily. Sure, there’s a war on, but that won’t stop Molly from turning life’s lemons into an unwanted lemon cake. Tune in to hear our coverage of Molly’s birthday week and a discussion of twilight birth that no one asked for. Trust us, this Molly mood is a Taurus-de-force. "Shirley Takes the Cake" Evening Star.
