Today's show features PegE (aka Dr. Elam) & Pat (aka The Queen) enjoying the first day of spring and discussing urban/suburban gardening, backyard chickens, goats, rabbits, fruit-thieving squirrels & bok choi.  After the musical interlude they moved to the more serious topic of the harmful effects of "childhood obesity prevention" programs, mentioning the recent Daily Beast article by Paul Campos (author of The Diet Myth: Why America's Obsession with Weight is Hazardous to Your Health), which points out how the Let's Move campaign is reinforcing the bullying of fat kids.

Kristi Martel's "Even Free" & Suchi Waters Benjamin's "Freedom" were the musical selections today.
