WFL 25: Conservation And Behavioural Husbandry Of Giraffes At The Toronto Zoo With Brent Huffman
Play • 38 min

Giraffes are a unique animal with their long necks and very long and flexible tongues. I wanted to find out more about giraffes at the Toronto Zoo, so I got the chance to sit down with Brent Huffman, Zookeeper, to ask him some questions about the two Masai giraffes at the Zoo. 

Brent and I discuss their conservation needs in the wild in light of their massive population decline, the Species Survival Plan, behavioural husbandry implemented for giraffes at the Zoo, and we learn why giraffes have such long and flexible tongues.

276 - How Shall We Love? (w/ Jamie Lee Finch & Propaganda)
Love your neighbor, love your enemy.  Jamie Lee Finch (the Liturgists) and Propaganda (Red Couch Podcast)  discuss with Joey  “loving others” in the context of people’s personal journeys, social media “venting,” and the ability or inability to humanize others.  Should we respond to “ignorant hate” differently than how we respond to just straight up, ‘ol hate?  Do some legitimately have a harder time loving because of their place in society and past experiences?  And should we be cautious in using the word “should” when it comes to another person's ability to love well?    Jamie: https://jamieleefinch.com/ https://twitter.com/jamieleefinch Propaganda: https://www.prophiphop.com/ https://twitter.com/prophiphop Support the Podcast: Become a patron:    https://www.patreon.com/pwnapod Leave a tip:    https://venmo.com/joey-svendsen Join the discussion:    https://www.facebook.com/groups/PWNAtalk Current DonorSee Giving Opportunity: https://donorsee.com/pwnahelps (Text PWNAd to 31010 to receive notifications each time we have new opportunity to “save the day” for team humanity) PWNA Socials: www.instagram.com/PWNApod https://twitter.com/pwnapod https://www.facebook.com/PWNApod JOEY Socials https://twitter.com/joeysvendsen https://www.instagram.com/joeysvendsen https://www.facebook.com/joey.svendsen Correspondence: CALL 507-403-PWNA (7962):  Questions, Comments, Feedback, Pushback, frustration?  Air it out on our voicemail and we may air it on an episode.   E-mail PWNAcontact@gmail.com Music courtesy of: http://www.derekminor.com/ One song courtesy of: https://www.mechanicalriver.bandcamp.com Executive Producer of PWNApod:  Jared Svendsen

How to Navigate Mental Illness AND Addiction/Betrayal Trauma
Mental illness and addiction, as well as betrayal trauma, can be parallel struggles! And it can be very difficult to understand where one starts and the other begins, or which one leads to the other. In this episode, Mark talks raw and real about his own struggles with mental illness that began as a small child and how that morphed into and ran alongside his decades of addiction. Mark and Steve also discuss some important aspects of mental illness and addiction/betrayal trauma— -  Addiction can be its "own" mental illness/brain dis-order, but also interacts toxically with other conditions--the "catalyst effect" and "the chicken and the egg." -  Addiction can MIMIC and/or trigger mental illness symptoms related to ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, shame and depression, anxiety and many others. -  HOW can we BREAK the CYCLE?  First of all, there is GREAT HOPE! Second, we can eliminate certain "variables" to get on a healthy path. There are also certain areas we can STABILIZE.  Also, be REALISTIC about expectations—it's about PROGRESS not PERFECTION. Safety is created in the TRAJECTORY not necessarily the DESTINATION. -  Mark and Steve give a very specific assignment that is VERY HELPFUL!
