The year is 2030. On the snowy outskirts of DC, an underground musician (Tony winner Julie White) and her pragmatic teenage daughter (Erin Wilhelmi) battle the forces, seen and unseen, that threaten their survival.  


Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Colt Coeur, PoA’s 52nd to Bowery…), Bird is a world-premiere recording and, in partnership with the Axe-Houghton Foundation, a Wordsmith Duo commission.


After their previous run as mother and daughter in Broadway’s A Doll’s House, Part 2, White (Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, “Alpha House”) and Wilhelmi (To Kill A Mockingbird, The Crucible) reunite in this final episode of the 2020 Fall Season.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and for this episode Andrew and Michelle have offered the mic to Jessica, Shelley and Melia at Hygiene Edge. They spoke with a pediatric hygiene specialist and traded tips and tricks for dental hygiene educators who work with children. Jessica began her hygiene career—even if she technically wasn’t a dental hygienist at the time—in a pediatric office. Shelley has worked with a wide range of pediatric patients in private practices over the years, and now instructs the next generation of hygienists on working with children and adolescents. Melia has worked in dental hygiene for over a decade and experiences the pediatric side of her profession when bringing her daughter to appointments. They spoke with Brittnee Thibault, who’s both a resident pediatric hygiene specialist and a clinical instructor for hygiene students. In this episode, our guests discuss how to best describe an injection without freaking out your young patient, impress the importance of an “I’m the boss” voice, and explain how a little fidget spinner can go a long way to keeping your patient happy. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Interview starts: 16:05 - Melia’s fun experience bringing in her daughter to get a tongue-cut done. - Brittnee discusses how she came to work in a pediatric office. - Why it’s unusual to actually have a dental hygienist working in a pediatric office in Utah—and why these offices should have a hygienist on staff. - What Shelley is hearing from her pediatric students on how their clinic experience differs from what they’re being taught. - Why Jessica “bailed” the first time she had to administer a pediatric injection. - How you can build up your students’ confidence before they begin practicing on children. - What instructors can do to ensure a successful appointment for the child, student and educator. - How you can make the appointment experience more comforting for both kids and their parents. QUOTES: “It’s very important to know how to treat those little ones all the way up to adolescence.” “I love this office and I love pediatrics.” “Replace those scary words with things that aren’t as scary.” “As an instructor... one aspect I’m always trying to bring in is helping them to include the parent in the conversation as well.” “Setting those expectations before the patient’s in the chair, with the student, I feel like makes the appointment a lot better.” “Just take a breath... go with the flow.” “Don’t ever forget that you’re not alone and you’re part of a good team.” LINKS: Hygiene Edge - A Tale of Two Hygienists homepage - AToTH on Facebook - AToTH on Instagram - AToTH on LinkedIn - This episode includes the sound effect “cheering-16.flac” by Halleck found at -

Myths & More: Deciphering the Haskalah
The Haskala movement, was a Jewish movement of the 18th and 19th centuries which sought to implement changes in Jewish life and society. Often discussed yet just as often misunderstood, it is intriguing as it is confusing. Was the haskala the Jewish Enlightenment? When was this movement? Where did it take place? Can it even be classified as a 'movement'? How so? Who were its primary personalities? How did they impact Jewish life? Is the rise of Jewish nationalism at the end of the 19th century related to haskala movement of the earlier decades? When did the haskala end? If there is one unifying characteristic of this very dispersed 'movement', it is the use of the written word as the primary mechanism and tool to get their message across. The rise in maskilic literature took the form of newspapers, journals, poetry, novels, short stories and satire. The haskala movement sought to bring change to Jewish life in the modern world, and it played a significant role in the Jewish history of the 19th century.

90: We need to talk a lot more about not dying with Dr. Daren Heyland
There is a BIG difference between End Of Life Planning and Serious Illness Planning. If you think estate planning is getting your wills and powers of attorney or healthcare directives set up for taking care of things when you die or are about to die, you might be making a big mistake. If you end up in an ER, the doctors aren't going to look at any end of life planning you might have in place if they think they can still save your life. This requires a whole different way of thinking about planning for serious medical illnesses. On the show today I speak with critical care physician, Dr. Daren Heyland, who is going to give us a look behind the scenes at what really happens when people and their loved ones are making decisions about their medical care when they are seriously ill, or terminal. We’ve talked a bit about estate planning on the podcast before, and my guest recently attended a financial planning seminar where the positioning of how and when certain parts of an estate plan come into place could have used some fine tuning.  He’s also going to discuss an initiative he’s been spearheading, called the Plan Well Guide, *Plan Well Guide is a FREE tool to help people learn about medical treatments and prepare them for decision-making during a serious illness, like COVID-19 pneumonia for example. *  Find out more here: Company: Twitter: Facebook: @planwellguide Twitter: @plan_well_guide Instagram: @plan_well_guide LinkedIn:   *Guest Bio:*  Dr. Daren Heyland is a critical care doctor at Kingston General Hospital and a Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Queen’s University. He currently serves as the Director of the Clinical Evaluation Research Unit (CERU) at the Kingston General Hospital.  For over a decade he chaired the Canadian Researchers at the End of Life Network (CARENET), which has a focus on developing and evaluating strategies to improve communication and decision-making at the end of life

Today is an extra special episode! We have physiotherapist Cath Willis back (go find the episode on breast health from April 2018) to talk about #bladder leakage, or technically known as urinary incontinence. She breaks down the types and causes for urinary #incontinence, what physiotherapists look for as part of assessment and ways we can help treat this, as well as understanding the importance bladder leak protection products such as Always Discreet. Not only is Cath a wealth of clinical knowledge in her roles as a pelvic health physiotherapist for Queensland Health and Movements Solutions Physiotherapy in Brisbane, she was our previous Chair of the APA's Women's, Men's and Pelvic Health National Group, is the New Chair of the APA's National Advisory Council, and teaches the undergraduate Gender Health subject to physiotherapy students at Australian Catholic University in Brisbane. On that note, I want to say a very big thank you to Always Discreet as this entire episode has been made possible by their support. For more than 30 years across the world, Always has been helping women with their menstruation needs thanks to its comprehensive line of period pads and liners. The brand gained global accolades for some of its previous topical campaigns, including “Like A Girl” and “End Period Poverty.” As a brand, Always’ purpose has been to empower and help females everywhere live life to their fullest potential. Not only have they created a superior line-up of bladder leak protection products called Always Discreet, they have helped to educate women around the globe about the help from doctors and physiotherapists available for bladder leakage rather than just telling women to use their products and ignore it. But, what makes the Always Discreet range so great? * It’s specifically designed for incredible protection from bladder leaks (vs. menstruation needs) * It features breakthrough technology via a super-absorbent core that turns liquid into gel and locks in odours * Its products on the range are surprisingly thin and discreet, helping you feel more comfortable and confident going about your everyday life Now sit back and enjoy!

63: The Scholems: Considering German Jewry’s History and Legacy with Jay Geller
Jay Geller reflects on the history and legacy of German Jewry as a whole through the lens of the history of a single bourgeois family, the Scholems, which is the topic of his recent book The Scholems: A Story of the German-Jewish Bourgeoisie from Emancipation to Destruction. Purchase The Scholems on Amazon The book offers a fascinating look at the history of an entire society through the lens of one family. We can see how each of the four Scholem brothers grew up in the same middle-class German Jewish culture but charted their own political and historical path through the contours of German Jewish history and its diaspora. Gerhard or Gershom Scholem, the Zionist, immigrated to Palestine in 1924 and is most widely known for his scholarship on Jewish mysticism; his brother Werner, who became a leading figure in the German Communist party in the 1920s, was murdered by the Nazis at Buchenwald, and Reinhold and Erich, respectively a nationalist and liberal, made their way to Australia in the 1930s. The Scholem family is simultaneously an eminent middle-class Jewish Berlin family, and it is at the same time also distinctly everyday, showcasing through this microcosm the whole story of Jews in Germany as a whole in the lead-up to the second world war and the Holocaust. We're so excited to discuss share this conversation about the the Scholems and German Jewish history in the largest terms. Listen in as we think through both the history of Jews in Germany, as well as the legacy of German Jewish culture. Jay Geller is the Samuel Rosenthal Professor of Judaic Studies at Case Western Reserve University’s Department of History. In addition to The Scholems, his most recent book, he has also written ‌Jews in Post-Holocaust Germany, 1945-1953.
