Elucidate No. 47 - Look At the Bright Side of Evil



The slave abolitionist Harriet Tubman is replacing Andrew Jackson on the front of the twenty dollar bill. I've thought for some time that how it's long overdue that money, which we're all exposed to many times a day reflect the ACTUAL better light of history.

Elucidate No. 43 - Sofia Zappi 2

So, Sofia was kind enough to stop by again, and again something went wrong with our podcast. Some of you may remember, the first time I pushed the wrong button for the video (Sofia's previous episode: http://atlanticradio.blogspot.com/2015/09/elucidate-no-35-sofia-zappi.html). This time it wasn't my fault. JEA cut the f**king power because they were installing new street lights. The timing was unfortunate, but our street is bright as f**k!

Elucidate No. 41 - Patricia Borgess 2


Patricia is a clinical mental health counselor, and she just gave birth to a baby at home, in the bathroom. On the toilet, specifically (Don't worry the midwife caught the baby). We did this podcast early, so it took a moment to rev up. We talk about our communication struggles, having a midwife assisted home birth, and our culture clashes.
