Episode Description

Mark your calendar for February 14th and prepare to be transported through time in a thrilling tale of love and science. The Birds of Dog, an epistolary historical fiction, will take you on a journey through the 1800s, delving into the birth of the first postage stamp, the innovations of photography and telegraph, the rise of temperance and abolitionist movements, and the changing views on using animal parts for adornment. Blending fact and fiction with great care, the story immerses us so completely in the world of bird-loving Boston bluebloods that we can practically feel their passion ourselves. If you're a fan of both historical fiction and nature, this is one podcast you won't want to miss.

Women, Life and Science

Wednesday at 7 AM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

We are women, living a full life, have a professional career in science or in some form or another have been involved in the industry. We have stories to tell and knowledge to impart. We overcame challenges, uncertainties and continue to navigate the ever evolving professional and personal balance. We share in kindness and we share openly. We are grateful for many things. We have little regrets but easily forgive ourselves for our missteps. Women, Life and Science is the open forum for dialogue, knowledge presentations and story-telling.
