"While the Plane was in Motion?" - Ep. 15 - The United Airlines Passenger Dragged Off the Plane

FINALLY! We're baaaaack! We sound better thanks to our new MacBook Pro (and goodbye to our pain in the ASUS Chromebook!). We return with a two-way discussion about the no-way flight Dr. David Dao experienced on a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville, KY on April 9. The tween and I tackle what would we do if we were passengers on that flight and other options the airlines and Dr. Dao could have taken. I confirmed from multiple reports after the podcast that Dr. Dao is a physician.

"While the Plane was in Motion?" - Ep. 15 - The United Airlines Passenger Dragged Off the Plane

"I Thought the Nazis Were Done." - Hate Crimes and Prejudice - Ep. 14

In light of the rash of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the country and the 170+ tombstones knocked over at a Jewish cemetery in a St. Louis suburb (which the police are not calling a hate crime), the Tween and I talk about what exactly is a hate crime. We also delve into the meaning of the word prejudice and, to lighten the mood, terrible jokes. As Daughter put it, "This will be so offensive to blondes, though." We did talk about felonies and misdemeanors, too. For the record, there are various state and federal laws about hate crimes. That part had to be cut because of the dog's jangling collar in the background combined with the sound of family members opening and closing the fridge repeatedly in hopes that something other than spinach & cheese ravioli leftovers would magically appear on the shelves.

"This is Tricky." - The Weekly News Quiz by The New York Times for Feb. 7-13, 2017 - Ep. 13

We're behind a week. To make up for the news we missed, the Tween and Mom read aloud the SAT-word-intense Weekly News Quiz by The New York Times. This parent is not proud that she knew who won Best Rap Album at the Grammys but not where the President said he stands on "One China." In fact, if you asked this parent what exactly One China is, she would have guessed a David Bowie album that also won a Grammy.
