In this episode we welcome our new sponsor “Lightnin Buggzzz,” the “Diaper With A Social Conscience.”
Plus, we dive into the following topics:
Fireworks: What would the 4th of July be without fireworks? And what would it be like in a state in which fireworks are completely illegal, so nobody has them at all, right, because everyone is a law-abiding citizen, right? Well, not in our neighborhood. Actually this year was a relatively quiet one, but you’ll hear a few clips recorded in our back yard. Other than that, the safety people are always happy to blow up a watermelon!
The Randy Scuffle Papers: Yes, we pitch the book, but not too hard. Just a brief discussion of the concept and some discussion of bologna and meat as art. You really should check out The Randy Scuffle Papers. Phil also has a blog he updates every once in a while. Check that out too!
ICD-10 Codes: More ICD-10 codes. This time Phil and Rita have a plan to take down the entire healthcare system’s ability to monitor disease. You can help. Project Orca is underway.
Spam Haiku: Rita had a great idea last episode. She thought some of the garbage found in spam emails might contain unintentional haikus. Well, she was right! Phil found a few and reads them to her with love. Even the dirty ones.
Jenny Seay: We say goodbye to Jenny after an 8 year run as the genius behind the Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series. Hear Phil learn to say the word “cafe.” Seriously, Jenny, you will be missed and we will do all we can to keep things entertaining. Bon voyage!
NOTE: we were experiencing some audio distortion on earlier episodes; this episode has been recorded at a higher bitrate, and that should solve any problems. The downside is it is a larger file. You can either have it small and shitty or big and awesome. Right now we’ll try big and awesome.
That’s it for this episode. Share your thoughts at: comments at prehensileandgretel.com, or here on this blog in the comments section.

Phil and Rita – your comments on the departure of Jenny from the THC Reading Series is so correct – she has done a great job building the series up over 8 years. It is a great reading community. Also, THC owners Jaime and Lizet – we do it because we love to support the arts and see people live and discover their talents … like the “Randy Scuffle Papers” … look forward to more Pod Casts .
Thanks for your kind words! We will continue to do what we can to support however we can, in our special way. More podcasts to come!
