43: Gift Giving During COVID, Joementum 2021, Being Cordial with Trumpublicans
Play • 1 hr 13 min
As we slowly transition away from needing to worry about what the President is tweeting every day, we've got a mixed bag of stories for you this week!

  • Our "Greetings from 2020" shirts have begun hitting BAE Patrons' mailboxes, and they look great! Share a pic of your shirt on social using #Greetingsfrom2020.
  • RIP Trump Voter Fraud hotline, we wished you'd lived to see another day of trolling. 😢 
  • Wonder Woman 1984 has Warner Bros. wondering how best to safely release a film that has already seen release delays due to covid.
  • As we approach the holiday season, what to do about gift giving is on our minds. We want everyone to know it's TOTALLY OKAY to skip the presents this year.
  • Andrew launches a new segment: Tragic Female Singer Contracts Updates™.
  • Netflix is currently testing its new "Direct" feature in France, which would give customers the ability to view Netflix's library in a traditional, cable channel-like format.
  • We're retiring Trumpster Fire 2020 and replacing it with JOEMENTUM 2021. Cue triumphant new music soundbed.
  • Contrary to the fantasy going on in Donald Trump's head, Joe Biden still beat him in both the popular vote and the Electoral College.
  • Arizona and Georgia showed up to the party late, but they can stay!
  • Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been receiving pressure from prominent Republicans to... cheat the Georgia recount.
  • An Aussie listener is perplexed by the amount of infighting in the United States, but we just can't be cordial with white supremacists.
  • In this week's Rona Roundup, we ask if we might be... "rounding the rona?" Dr. Fauci thinks widespread access to the vaccine is possible by April 2021, which means by summer we can (maybe) all touch each other again!
  • There's no common thread between this week's recommendations, so just humor us: DeleteMe (Andrew), 'The Crown' season 4 (Laura), and coffee mug warmers (Pam).

And in this week's installment of After Dark:

  • "It rubs the sanitizer on its skin or else it gets phase 1 again." Are we preparing for more lockdowns?
  • Because the US is... the way it is, depending on where you live in the country, you may or may not see another lockdown.
  • What did we learn from earlier this year that might make hunkering down a little easier this time?
  • Is it a relatively safe option to book an Airbnb for a weekend change of scenery?

Why Your Treats Aren’t Working for Your Dog
Visit us at shapedbydog.com In the world of dog training, a lot of people are trying to train their dog with a focus solely on the use of reinforcement. But there can be a disparity in the success people have when using rewards. We’re going to turn the microscope on why the outcome varies between trainers, why it’s happening, and what we can do about it so everyone can have success. In the episode you'll hear: • The reasons that animal training fails. • How to get brilliant at understanding and using reinforcement values. • What motivational currency is for your dog. • The difference between a commemorative coin and a thousand dollars an hour. • Why to vary the treats you give your dog when training. • How different locations and activities can require differing rewards. • The food rewards I use with my dogs and how I rank those rewards. • My exact formula for what reinforcement to use when. • Why to consider your dog’s uncertainty and distraction value. • How to rank a reward’s motivational currency and the scale to use. • The reason frequency changes the value of a reinforcer. • Why I use high value treats for husbandry behaviors and how I transfer value. Susan Garrett’s Reinforcement Formula: RV > DU + DV RV = Reinforcement Value DU = Dog’s Uncertainty DV = Distraction Value Resources: • Podcast Episode 2: Reinforcement-https://dogsthat.com/podcast/2/ • Podcast Episode 34: Time Outs for Dogs: Does Your Dog Need One?-https://dogsthat.com/podcast/34/ • Tasty Treats Recipe eBook-https://dogsthat.com/tastytreats/ • Blog Post: How Do I Train My Dog To Come When Called?-https://susangarrettdogagility.com/2019/04/train-my-dog-to-come-when-called/ • Crate Games Online-https://get.crategames.com/
