Lisa Garr (email) was joined by authority on fungi, Paul Stamets, who talked about his discovery on how to use mushrooms to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants, catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds, as well as control insect populations, and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and bodies.
First hour guest, Dr. Marilyn Wedge, family therapist and ADHD expert, discussed how powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed to treat childhood hyperactivity but rarely help.
03/17/2012-- I just finished making a second Devil's Toy Box [as spoken about by Joshua P. Warren on the 2/28/12 show]. One is traditional with only mirrors reflecting upon itself internally (pictured). The other box I placed 2 clear quartz on each side just for fun. So far they have made weird noises (zapping sounds like electrical wires and bat chirps) and I have recorded a male mechanical voice saying, "I can erase this". After that, many of the recordings have been backwards-sounding and I am still analyzing those backwards sounds in Garage Band. I don't scare easy and this is super creepy but fun.
