Delicious Ingredients: June 11-17, 2016

Each week I will publish the most Delicious Ingredients of my Audible Feast … the scrumptious, delectable, savory, rich, sweet, and spicy podcast episodes that have fed my ears this week. This will also allow me to link directly to episodes via either Soundcloud, Stitcher, or a podcast’s website (which are often amazing and contain bonus info or complementary stories). This also brings more visual content to my site as I can link to some beautiful logos and original artwork from these sites! All episode descriptions and artwork come from the linked sites. (Note: I also try to track every episode I listen to here.)

Snap Judgment, Episode 716: Voice of Reason (6/10/16): “What if you discover your plans aren’t working? Do you listen to good advice or do you shoot the messenger? Featuring stories about Jesse Jackson, the voice of God, and more…” The segment “The Warrior’s Return” is just phenomenal. My heart was pounding, I was so full of emotion – just fantastic audio.

The Uncertain Hour, Episode S1-04: Everything But the Kitchen Sink (6/9/16): “What do college scholarships, marriage counseling classes and crisis pregnancy centers have in common? In some states, they’re funded by federal welfare dollars. We are continuing our cross-country tour where we drop in on states to investigate how they spend welfare money, known as Temporary Assistance to Needy Families or TANF.  This week: Michigan.  The state spends about $100 million a year in TANF dollars on college scholarships—and many recipients are from families that earn more than $100,000 year. Meanwhile, just 18 out of every 100 families living in poverty receives basic cash assistance.” (24 minutes) Twitter: @kristianiaclark @mpwealthpoverty &

BBC WitnessBBC Witness: The Battle for Mixed Race Marriage in the US (6/10/16): “In 1958, a mixed-race couple, Mildred and Richard Loving, were arrested and then banished from the US state of Virginia for breaking its laws against inter-racial marriage. Nine years later, Mildred and Richard Loving won a ruling at the Supreme Court declaring this sort of legislation unconstitutional. Witness speaks to the Lovings’ lawyer, Bernie Cohen.” I love this piece of history and it is eloquently yet succinctly told in a short episode. (9 minutes)

RSVTRumble Strip Vermont: Last Chapter (6/9/16): “Rob Mermin and Bill Morancy lived in neighboring apartments in Montpelier, Vermont. They were best friends.  And when Bill was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he asked his best friend to help him die. In 2013, Vermont passed the The Patient Choice and Control at End of Life Act, or Act 39…our version of Death with Dignity. The legislation allows eligible Vermonters with terminal diseases the option to be prescribed medication that will hasten the end of their life. In 2015, Bill elected to use Act 39 to end his life, and he asked Rob to help him. This is a story about their friendship, and the months, days and moments leading up to Bill’s death.” (2 minutes) Twitter: @rumblestripvt
