Today, some seemingly random updates:

This morning I learned that The West Memphis Three have been released from prison, on some quirky plea deal. I haven’t followed this case much over the last ten years, but at one time my forensic company (and forensic ex) was actively involved in the defense and a related documentary (involvement in that film is an interesting story for another day). So glad they’re finally out, but this is certainly not “justice,” as they were in prison for 18 years, one of them on death row, for crimes there is no evidence of them committing.

Earlier today, my co-host and I had a very nice phone chat with Harold Brown of FarmKind.org; We hope to air the interview for next month’s show. We’re about ready to throw the phone patch at the station out the window, however {ongoing saga}. Looks like we’re going to have to figure something else out for phone interviews. Zoom? Skype? A little of both? We’re working on it.

And we’ll get plenty of practice with the Zoom at Vida Vegan Con, which is coming up next week! In fact, the fun begins Friday, as we join up on the way to Portland with some of the attendees at a tour of Bob’s Red Mill. I’ve heard great things about Bob’s and his company, and I wanted to visit the last few times I was in Portland, so this is the perfect opportunity. At any given time, I have several Bob’s products in my pantry, especially with all the bread making this summer. On the menu at the store: vegan flapjacks and french toast! Plus, Spar for the Spurtle: The Ultimate Oatmeal Throwdown is Friday as well.
