Guest(s): Bill Walton, Alyona Wazeter, Frank Wazeter, Rich McFadden, Brian McNicoll, Greg Corombos

05/17/2021

Guest(s): Rosemary Gibson


When you think of all the things in your house that are "made in China", one thing you may not realize is how many medicines are. That bottle of aspirin? Made in China. Penicillin? Made in China.

Episode 128: The Bard and The Bible

05/02/2021

Guest(s): Bob Hostetler


For the past year or so, I’ve been reading in a daily devotional titled the The Bard and The Bible. In it each day is a quote from William Shakespeare, a related passage from the King  James Bible and a witty and wise reading of how they might relate to us today.
