    Ep 23: Covid Delta Scariants Do Not Yield SkyMiles®

    Ep 23: Covid Delta Scariants Do Not Yield SkyMiles®

    It's been a few months since our last Covid-19 check in episode, so I welcome back Dr. Preeyam Patel to chat about the Delta variant, breakthrough cases, vaccine boosters and more! The science is presented in such a way that a layperson such as myself can understand, as with our previous episodes!
    Topics in-depth:
    - Will Covid become endemic, like the flu?
    - Why the so-called "free" vaccine may not actually be free in the US
    - All things Delta variant. What makes it more contagious? How effective are vaccines?
    - Here are two graphs that show the differences in variants (One) and (Two)
    - WHAT ARE BREAKTHROUGH cases, and what happens in the body when they occur?
    - The Korean study on viral load, which serves as a Provincetown event rebuttal
    - Is the mutation of variants intelligent? Will a Covid variant one day bypass all vaccines?
    - How can we get the entire globe vaccinated easier and stop continued variants?
    - Regarding children, how is vaccine approval going, and what are schools doing against masks?
    - How are we currently staying safe?
    Here's the overall Sources Cited document from all our episodes including this one, that Pree keeps up to date: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10KhFPu739N16C6X3Lltz3LBWMYON7Lld2yPB5y0zbUs/edit?usp=sharing

    TYFS One Year Retrospective!

    TYFS One Year Retrospective!

    "Thank You for Spieling" is one year old! I am joined by fellow podcaster and friend Julianna (last heard on Episode 2 of this show!) to get crazy and discuss her thoughts as well as my major takeaways from the first year of Spieling.
    Secrets are told, as I reveal the official lyrics to the TYFS theme song, and admit that much like a certain fictional farm boy, what I'm really saying when I podcast with people is, "I love you." 
    It's a very candid and zany episode, where we are even joined by The Pizza Wizard from PuffCast! Julianna has also started a new Shadow and Bone universe podcast, called Into the Fold! Definitely check it out.
    If you have particular thoughts on the show, as always you may email them to thankyouforspieling@gmail.com.
    Thank you to all listeners old and new, and especially thanks to all of my guests so far: Chad H., Julianna C., Caleb W., David P., Angela K., Dave J., Ben S., Brittney B., Hannah E., Josh S., Dr. Preeyam P., Derek M., Drew K., Andrea W., Karen Y., Melissa A., Joe F., Jen U., Sarah D., Menachem C., Fuchsia R., and Janet S.! And thank you to Yike Lu for the amazing theme song and Meg Scott for the wonderful show art.

    Ep 21 - My Mom, the Speech Therapist

    Ep 21 - My Mom, the Speech Therapist

    The month of May is Better Hearing and Speech Month! On this very special episode of Thank You for Spieling, I interview my mother, Janet Scull, about her long career as a speech and language pathologist working in a school district for 34 years. It was a great treat to finally talk to my mom about her career, now that I am older and understand such things! Despite retiring last year, my mom's clear dedication and depth of knowledge in the subject and her passion are clearer than ever.
    We cover such topics as:
    How did she become aware of speech pathology? What courses did she take in college for speech pathology? What are the most common impairments her patients would have? What is her unique approach to teaching / her style? How do you teach a person who has suffered a stroke to swallow or to talk again? Why do we speak? How do we speak? How do you prioritize goals to work on in a patient with multiple issues? What have been the highlights of her teaching career? If you have any comments on the episode, please e-mail us at thankyouforspieling@gmail.com
    Refer to ASHA.org for any resources pertaining to the field of speech and language pathology.

    20. Aaahh!!! Real Witches!

    20. Aaahh!!! Real Witches!

    On this episode I'm joined by my friend Fuchsia Rascal who is a real-life practicing witch! All my years spent podcasting on Harry Potter could not have prepared me to hear about what real witches do (and don't do), compared to the movies and books! And Fuchsia, who I met through Harry Potter over a decade ago, is the perfect guest to get me (and listeners) caught up. Follow us into the broom closet as we discuss the following things:
    —How did Fuchsia get started as a witch?
    —Are there organized religions for witches and what are they?
    —Who is the Green Man?
    —How a trip to New Zealand awakened dormant spiritual feelings
    —Not everyone who does magic would even call themselves a witch, so how is magic defined?
    —Common expressions such as "knock on wood," blowing out candles on the birthday cake, ARE magic!
    —Does all magic has a cost? What is karmic balance and karmic debt?
    —Men and nonbinary people can be witches, too!
    —"Occultist, magician, warlock, magic practitioner" are all valid titles
    —Was playing MASH as a kid being witchy?
    —Fuchsia and Eric discuss the art of tarot reading, and how it works.
    —Oracle decks as separate / assistant to tarot
    —Black cats and books of shadows - what in witchcraft has pop culture gotten right?
    —Is using Ouija board magic? Does making contact with the spiritual realm get covered in paganism/Wicca?
    —What are some good resources for curious witches?
    —What has changed since embracing witchcraft?
