Episode 192: The Music Show #3

We put themed music at the end of each episode – “dessert,” if you will. In the spirit of this holiday season, where we give ourselves the joy of eating dessert first, we’d like to highlight the artists whose work has enhanced ours over the past few years.

This episode would make delightful background music to your holiday activities (or commute, or walk…whenever you listen!)

Episode 191: Fannie Merritt Farmer

Fannie Farmer circa 1900, around the time that she started her own school.

For a woman who taught generations of people to cook…she’s often forgotten. But this cook, teacher, administrator, author, and businesswoman has a lot to teach all of us, and not just about cooking! (more…)

Episode 190: Elizabeth Báthory, Revisited

The only original painting of her disappeared, this is a copy of that painting done when she was about 25.

Happy Halloween! This woman’s life story is the greatest (and definitely the creepiest) mystery we’ve ever discussed! Elizabeth Báthory: Cold, blooded serial killer, or misrepresented and framed, innocent noble? Maybe both? That’s what made her story so fascinating to so many people for so many years! The truth may never be realized, but even if it is, it’s so much fun to speculate about it, and perfect for Halloween!

Snag all the good candy from anyone’s bucket and settle in for a spooky tale that left us with one solid realization: We don’t care for the gore–there is a huge Little Ears warning on this one!
