Congrats, you made it to the weekend! On this week’s episode, Lauren Chooljian, a reporter and producer for New Hampshire Public Radio, and Arionne Nettles, a journalism professor at Northwestern University, join us to dig into the week that was. We pay tribute to the late fashion icon André Leon Talley, muse on Daniel Radcliffe’s forthcoming role as “Weird Al” Yankovic and discuss a troublesome murder of crows.

Then, we talk to Sequoia Nagamatsu about his new book How High We Go in the Dark. In it, there is a plague that hits children, but don’t worry, hope remains at the center of this COVID-like novel.

Plus, we talk to a conservation biologist who has a delicious solution to the issue of invasive species. University of Vermont professor Joe Roman is promoting the idea of invasivorism, or incorporating invasive species into your diet in order to control those populations. You can find recipes at his website, Eat The Invaders.
