The Best Of Our Knowledge #1252
Think back with me now…when was the last time you opened an encyclopedia…and no, Wikipedia doesn’t count. Well there is a fairly new one out that could just save your life…or not. It seems like you can’t listen to the news at all without finding something else that will eventually kill you. Sunshine, artificial sweeteners, natural sweeteners...there’s no escaping it; they are all gunning for you. And according to this book...it’s even worse than we thought. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, a conversation with an author of The Encyclopedia Paranoiaca.
We’ll also hear an essay from a newly unemployed teacher who is wondering why her high school science teacher didn't change the world...and spend an academic minute with some very therapeutic honey.
