Glynn Washington is the host and creator of the public radio show Snap Judgment. Fun fact: He actually got his radio show started by winning a radio contest. Snap Judgment is all about “storytelling with a beat,” and, with a little help from Helen Hong, Glynn will explain why.

Alison Becker is an actress who’s perhaps best known for playing Shauna Malwae-Tweep on Parks and Recreation (people still recognize her for it to this day). She’s also the star of the Max Fun Podcast Bubble.

In this episode, we’ll learn about Glynn’s attitude towards producing quality stories, why puppets are a perfect way to combat social justice issues and Alison’s amazing moment where she made out with Jon Bon Jovi, one of her musical heroes.

What’s the difference?
What’s the difference between a “lake” and a “pond”?

What’s the difference between an “arrowsmith” and a “fletcher?”

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Debra Hauser

Biz and Theresa discuss the power of the phrase “calm down.” Yes, we want our kids to calm down, but why does it trigger gross feelings from our own childhoods? Is it just the easiest thing to say when kids are too loud or too hyped or too upset? Yes. It is. Plus Biz gets a compliment, Theresa does do nights, and we talk to Debra Hauser with Advocates For Youth about the future of sex education and the new site Amaze.org.

You can find Debra on Twitter @dlhaus or on the Advocates for Youth website at Advocatesforyouth.org. You can watch the Amaze project videos at Amaze.org or Youtube.com/Amazeorg and we cannot recommend them enough!
