(neuro-electric therapy) makes the boldest claims. Without any use of medication, it promises to bring its patients off their drugs of addiction in 5-7 days, with little or no withdrawal symptoms and no future cravings. Could that possibly be true? And if so, why isn't it available everywhere as we continue to lose over 250 per day to drug overdoses?This episode is both inspiring, hopeful and maddening, all at the same time. Norman Stone, director of The Final Fix documentary, sat down with me to talk about his decades-long attempts at bringing N.E.T. to the forefront in hopes it will get approved as an addiction treatment in the United States and worldwide.In the early '70s Norman had a chance encounter with a world-renowned Scottish surgeon who had stumbled upon a non-pharmacological, non-invasive treatment protocol that got, among others, Eric Clapton off of heroin. In this episode, you'll hear that story, and also hear why this treatment and documentary are currently not available in the United States.What is the treatment? N.E.T. uses a small device that is taped over the mastoid bone, behind the patients' ears. Then, a carefully programmed series of tiny electrical pulses re-stimulate the production of the body's own natural pain killers, known as Endorphins and Enkephalins in the brain. For someone who's addicted to any substance these naturally produced opiates quickly become depleted, and even replaced, by the drug or alcohol. The pain and agony of withdrawal keep people trapped in a world that can revolve around drug-seeking, crime, ruined relationships, and often, death. N.E.T. changes all of that, and you'll hear how in this absolutely riveting episode.For those who want to be notified when The Final Fix documentary is available in the U.S. please go to www.brendazane.com/finalfix.

Nearly a year after Olga Sharypova publicly accused tennis star Alexander Zverev of repeated physical and emotional abuse during their relationship, the ATP announced this week that it is opening an investigation into (one of the) accusations, which Zverev has repeatedly denied in blanket terms. Ben, who has interviewed Sharypova and investigated the story for both Racquet and Slate, is joined by Mary Carillo and Jessica Luther to discuss the accusations and their impact on the sport. What took so long for the ATP to act, and why is their scope limited to Shanghai 2019? Should we have faith in the ATP to do a proper investigation? What does an investigation need to do the job correctly? How important is Sharypova's continued participation and cooperation? How has tennis dealt with the cloud over the sport in the past year? Why are tennis broadcasters so reluctant to discuss difficult topics? What to make of the select input from other players? And more.

Investigating the anti-hypertensive effects of pumpkin seed oil Marymount University and University of Guilan (Iran), September 29, 2021 In a study, researchers from Iran and the U.S. found that pumpkin seed oil can potentially treat hypertension in postmenopausal women. Their report was published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice. Postmenopausal women are more likely to develop hypertension than men of the same age. In vivo studies reveal that pumpkin seed oil has anti-hypertensive activity. The team investigated the effects of pumpkin seed oil supplementation on vascular function and heart rate variability in postmenopausal women with elevated blood pressure. Participants were assigned to take either a pumpkin seed oil supplement or a placebo for the six-week study. Those in the experimental group took 3 grams of pumpkin seed oil every day. Brachial and central blood pressure, wave reflection (augmentation index, AIx), arterial stiffness (SI) and various HRV parameters were measured at baseline and at the end of the study. Those who took pumpkin seed oil had significantly lower AIx, brachial and systolic blood pressure after treatment. SI and HRV parameters remained unchanged for the treatment group and the placebo group at the end of the study. In sum, taking pumpkin seed oil may improve arterial hemodynamics in postmenopausal women. Health benefits of evening classes revealed Oxford University, September 20, 2021 Those with a taste for adult education classes have long known it, but now Oxford University scientists have confirmed that taking part in the weekly sessions can boost wellbeing – regardless of the subject studied. In partnership with the Workers' Educational Association (WEA), the largest voluntary sector provider of adult education in England and Scotland, a team from Oxford's department of experimental psychology studied attendees at seven separate day-time adult education classes. Their findings are published in a series of papers. Each class took place over seven months and included a break in the middle. Attendees completed questionnaires before and after their class three times over the seven months: at the beginning of their courses, after 3 months, and at the end of the seven months. Participants were involved in one of three activities: singing, crafts or creative writing. Overall, attendees at all seven classes had improved mental and physical health and reported more satisfaction with their lives at the end of their courses. Dr Eiluned Pearce led the research. She said: 'The students reported benefits including increased self-confidence, a greater feeling of control over their lives and more willingness to take on new challenges. Some said the classes made them more motivated to be more active, despite the classes not specifically involving physical activity. 'Participants also said that the classes broadened their networks of friends and gave them an increased sense of belonging. We also found that the more someone felt part of their group, the more their health and wellbeing improved.' An intriguing finding was in the singing and creative writing classes. Building on the results of an earlier paper from the same study, which found that people in singing classes felt closer to their group more quickly than those in the other classes, the team looked at how relationships formed between individuals in the classes. Each person was asked to name those other people in the class whose name they could remember, whether or not they felt connected to each person they named, and whether they had talked to that person during class. Dr Pearce said: 'The results showed that those in the singing and creative writing groups built up relationships with other individuals more quickly than the crafters, and singers felt more connected to the class as a whole more quickly than both the other groups. 'While this confirms our earlier finding that singing has an 'ice-breaker effect' compared to other activities, it shows that other activities may enable people to increase their social networks just as much, even if it takes them longer to feel connected to their group as a whole.' Co-author Dr Jacques Launay adds: 'While much of our previous work has demonstrated the importance of music, it is likely that the most socially bonding activities are always those that are personally chosen and enjoyed. This research adds to growing support for the relevance of creative activities in creating happy communities and improving health and well-being, with consequent benefits for public services and society.' Dr Pádraig Mac Carron, Dr Anna Machin and Professor Robin Dunbar were also involved in the research. Howard Croft, WEA Regional Education Manager, said: 'The findings reiterate the feedback that we have had from our students over the years: learning is a fantastic way to boost your self-esteem and confidence. Also of note, is its therapeutic effect. For many students, creative courses are a means of finding a new outlet for expressing their feelings. This can be of immense help during times of personal difficulty or emotional upheaval, such as divorce or bereavement. Simply going to a course can offer much-needed respite. 'For others, learning can be an opportunity to reignite a former passion. This could be anything from a subject which you enjoyed at school to an area which you are interested in. Whatever your reason, there are so many benefits to be gained by signing up to a course.' Want to live forever? Theoretically, you could, study says Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, September 29, 2021 Humans can probably live to at least 130, and possibly well beyond, though the chances of reaching such super old age remain vanishingly small, according to new research. The outer limit of the human lifespan has long been hotly debated, with recent studies making the case we could live up to 150 years, or arguing that there is no maximum theoretical age for humans. The new research, published Wednesday in the Royal Society Open Science journal, wades into the debate by analyzing new data on supercentenarians—people aged 110 or more—and semi-supercentenarians, aged 105 or more. While the risk of death generally increases throughout our lifetime, the researchers' analysis shows that risk eventually plateaus and remains constant at approximately 50-50. "Beyond age 110 one can think of living another year as being almost like flipping a fair coin," said Anthony Davison, a professor of statistics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), who led the research. "If it comes up heads, then you live to your next birthday, and if not, then you will die at some point within the next year," he told AFP. Based on the data available so far, it seems likely that humans can live until at least 130, but extrapolating from the findings "would imply that there is no limit to the human lifespan," the research concludes. The conclusions match similar statistical analyses done on datasets of the very elderly. "But this study strengthens those conclusions and makes them more precise because more data are now available," Davison said. The first dataset the team studied is newly released material from the International Database on Longevity, which covers more than 1,100 supercentenarians from 13 countries. The second is from Italy on every person who was at least 105 between January 2009 and December 2015. 'One in a million' The work involves extrapolating from existing data, but Davison said that was a logical approach. "Any study of extreme old age, whether statistical or biological, will involve extrapolation," he said. "We were able to show that if a limit below 130 years exists, we should have been able to detect it by now using the data now available," he added. Still, just because humans can theoretically reach 130 or beyond, doesn't mean we're likely to see it anytime soon. For a start, the analysis is based on people who have already achieved the relatively rare feat of making it to well over 100. And even at age 110, your chances of making it to 130 are "about one in a million... not impossible but very unlikely," said Davison. He thinks we could see people reaching 130 within the century, as more people make it to supercentenarian status, increasing the chances of one becoming that one in a million. "But in the absence of major medical and social advances, ages much over this are highly unlikely ever to be observed," he added. For now, the oldest person on record is Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the confirmed age of 122. Her true age was the subject of some controversy, with claims of a possible fraud, but in 2019 several experts said a review of the evidence confirmed her age. Other pretenders to the throne of oldest person ever have a long way to go. The oldest verified living person in the world is Japan's Kane Tanaka, a comparatively youthful 118. Psychological treatment shown to yield strong, lasting pain relief, alter brain networks University of Colorado, September 29, 2021 Rethinking what causes pain and how great of a threat it is can provide chronic pain patients with lasting relief and alter brain networks associated with pain processing, according to new University of Colorado Boulder-led research. The study, published Sept. 29 in JAMA Psychiatry, found that two-thirds of chronic back pain patients who underwent a four-week psychological treatment called Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) were pain-free or nearly pain-free post-treatment. And most maintained relief for one year. The findings provide some of the strongest evidence yet that a psychological treatmentcan provide potent and durable relief for chronic pain, which afflicts one in five Americans. "For a long time we have thought that chronic pain is due primarily to problems in the body, and most treatments to date have targeted that," said lead author Yoni Ashar, who conducted the study while earning his Ph.D. in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at CU Boulder. "This treatment is based on the premise that the brain can generate pain in the absence of injury or after an injury has healed, and that people can unlearn that pain. Our study shows it works." Misfiring neural pathways Approximately 85% of people with chronic back pain have what is known as "primary pain," meaning tests are unable to identify a clear bodily source, such as tissue damage. Misfiring neural pathways are at least partially to blame: Different brain regions—including those associated with reward and fear—activate more during episodes of chronic pain than acute pain, studies show. And among chronic pain patients, certain neural networks are sensitized to overreact to even mild stimuli. If pain is a warning signal that something is wrong with the body, primary chronic pain, Ashar said, is "like a false alarm stuck in the 'on' position." PRT seeks to turn off the alarm. "The idea is that by thinking about the pain as safe rather than threatening, patients can alter the brain networks reinforcing the pain, and neutralize it," said Ashar, now a postdoctoral researcher at Weill Cornell Medicine.or the randomized controlled trial, Ashar and senior author Tor Wager, now the Diana L. Taylor Distinguished Professor in Neuroscience at Dartmouth College, recruited 151 men and women who had back pain for at least six months at an intensity of at least four on a scale of zero to 10. Those in the treatment group completed an assessment followed by eight one-hour sessions of PRT, a technique developed by Los Angeles-based pain psychologist Alan Gordon. The goal: To educate the patient about the role of the brain in generating chronic pain; to help them reappraise their pain as they engage in movements they'd been afraid to do; and to help them address emotions that may exacerbate their pain. Pain is not 'all in your head' "This isn't suggesting that your pain is not real or that it's 'all in your head'," stressed Wager, noting that changes to neural pathways in the brain can linger long after an injury is gone, reinforced by such associations. "What it means is that if the causes are in the brain, the solutions may be there, too." Before and after treatment, participants also underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans to measure how their brains reacted to a mild pain stimulus. After treatment, 66% of patients in the treatment group were pain-free or nearly pain-free compared to 20% of the placebo group and 10% of the no-treatment group. "The magnitude and durability of pain reductions we saw are very rarely observed in chronic pain treatment trials," Ashar said, noting that opioids have yielded only moderate and short-term relief in many trials. And when people in the PRT group were exposed to pain in the scanner post-treatment, brain regions associated with pain processing—including the anterior insula and anterior midcingulate —had quieted significantly. The authors stress that the treatment is not intended for "secondary pain"—that rooted in acute injury or disease. The study focused specifically on PRT for chronic back pain, so future, larger studies are needed to determine if it would yeild similar results for other types of chronic pain. Meanwhile, other similar brain-centered techniques are already ememrging among physical therapists and other clinicians who treat pain. "This study suggests a fundamentally new way to think about both the causes of chronic back pain for many people and the tools that are available to treat that pain," said co-author Sona Dimidjian, professor of psychology and neuroscience and director of the Renee Crown Wellness Institute at CU Boulder. " It provides a potentially powerful option for people who want to live free or nearly free of pain." Citicoline (CDP-choline) and Memory Function in Healthy Older Adults: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial Kyowa Hakko Bio (Japan), September 2021 Supplementation of citicoline (CDP-choline), a naturally occurring mononucleotide, has shown beneficial effects on memory function and behavior in populations with a wide range of impairments. However, few studies have investigated its effect in healthy older populations. Objective The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of citicoline, on memory in healthy elderly populations with age-associated memory impairment (AAMI). Methods A total of 100 healthy men and women aged between 50 and 85 y with AAMI participated in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Participants were randomized to receive placebo (n = 51) or citicoline (n = 49; 500 mg/d) for 12 wk. Memory function was assessed at baseline and end of the intervention (12 wk) using computerized tests (Cambridge Brain Sciences, Ontario, Canada). Safety measurements included adverse events query, body weight, blood pressure, and hematology and metabolic panel. Intent-to-treat analysis was conducted using ANCOVA for the primary and secondary outcome variables with Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons. Results A total of 99 out of 100 participants completed the study in its entirety. After the 12-wk intervention, participants supplemented with citicoline showed significantly greater improvements in secondary outcomes of episodic memory (assessed by the Paired Associate test), compared with those on placebo (mean: 0.15 vs. 0.06, respectively, P = 0.0025). Composite memory (secondary outcome), calculated using the scores of 4 memory tests, also significantly improved to a greater extent following citicoline supplementation (mean: 3.78) compared with placebo (mean: 0.72, P = 0.0052). Conclusions Dietary supplementation of citicoline for 12 wk improved overall memory performance, especially episodic memory, in healthy older males and females with AAMI. The findings suggest that regular consumption of citicoline may be safe and potentially beneficial against memory loss due to aging. Sleep may strengthen long-term memories in the immune system University of Tuebingen (Germany) September 29, 2021 More than a century ago, scientists demonstrated that sleep supports the retention of memories of facts and events. Later studies have shown that slow-wave sleep, often referred to as deep sleep, is important for transforming fragile, recently formed memories into stable, long-term memories. Now, in an Opinion article published in Trends in Neurosciences, part of a special issue on Neuroimmunology, researchers propose that deep sleep may also strengthen immunological memories of previously encountered pathogens. "While it has been known for a long time that sleep supports long-term memoryformation in the psychological domain, the idea that long-term memory formation is a function of sleep effective in all organismic systems is in our view entirely new," says senior author Jan Born of the University of Tuebingen. "We consider our approach toward a unifying concept of biological long-term memory formation, in which sleep plays a critical role, a new development in sleep research and memory research." The immune system "remembers" an encounter with a bacteria or virus by collecting fragments from the bug to create memory T cells, which last for months or years and help the body recognize a previous infection and quickly respond. These memory T cells appear to abstract "gist information" about the pathogens, as only T cells that store information about the tiniest fragments ever elicit a response. The selection of gist information allows memory T cells to detect new pathogens that are similar, but not identical, to previously encountered bacteria or viruses. Studies in humans have shown that long-term increases in memory T cells are associated with deep slow-wave sleep on the nights after vaccination. Taken together, the findings support the view that slow-wave sleep contributes to the formation of long-term memories of abstract, generalized information, which leads to adaptive behavioral and immunological responses. The obvious implication is that sleep deprivation could put your body at risk. "If we didn't sleep, then the immune system might focus on the wrong parts of the pathogen," Born says. "For example, many viruses can easily mutate some parts of their proteins to escape from immune responses. If too few antigen-recognizing cells [the cells that present the fragments to T cells] are available, then they might all be needed to fight off the pathogen. In addition to this, there is evidence that the hormones released during sleep benefit the crosstalk between antigen-presenting and antigen-recognizing cells, and some of these important hormones could be lacking without sleep." Born says that future research should examine what information is selected during sleep for storage in long-term memory, and how this selection is achieved. In the end, this research could have important clinical implications. "In order to design effective vaccines against HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis, which are based on immunological memory, the correct memory model must be available," Born says. "It is our hope that by comparing the concepts of neuronal and immunological memory, a model of immunological memory can be developed which integrates the available experimental data and serves as a helpful basis for vaccine development." Standardized astragalus extract for attenuation of the immunosuppression induced by strenuous physical exercise: randomized controlled trial University of Physical Sciences (Poland), September 3, 2021 This paper aimed to verify how a supplementation of rower's diet with Astragalus Membranaceus Root (AMR) modulated their immune system response to maximal physical exertion. Methods The double-blind study included 18 members of the Polish Rowing Team assigned to the supplemented group (n = 10), and the placebo group (n = 8). The participants performed a 2000 m test on a rowing ergometer at the beginning and at the end of the six-week of intensive training camp during which the supplemented group received 500 mg of AMR. Blood samples were obtained prior to, 1 min after completing, and 24 h after the exertion test. The levels of interleukin 2 (IL2), interleukin 4 (IL4), interleukin 10 (IL10), interferon ɤ (IFN-ɣ), and lactic acid were determined. Subpopulations of T regulatory lymphocytes [CD4+/CD25+/CD127−] (Treg), cytotoxic lymphocytes [CD8+/TCRαβ+] (CTL), natural killer cells [CD3−/CD16+/CD56+] (NK), and TCRδγ-positive cells (Tδγ) were determined with flow cytometry. Results After the camp, the initial NK and Treg levels sustained at the baseline, while Tδγ counts increased relative to the levels in the placebo group. In the supplemented subgroup, a decrease in IL2 level in reaction to maximal exertion clearly deepened while the change in IL-2/IL-10 level induced by the recovery after this exertion clearly increased, relative to the changes in the placebo group. Conclusions AMR restored the immunological balance in strenuously trained athletes through a stabilization of NK and Treg cells with a positive trend in Tδγ towards Th1 response during restitution by cytokine IL2 modulation.

In addition to the physical toll of childbirth, there can be mental health challenges as well. Today's guest, an expert in postpartum mental health, is here to talk about how to recognize it and address it. Preparing for the postpartum period requires: Having clearly defined household and caregiving roles with your partner Understanding the state of your mental health Recognizing where you need help and asking for it Investigating your overall hormonal health About Shannon Wilson Shannon is licensed by the State of Iowa as a Mental Health Counselor and holds Certification in Perinatal Mental Health. She has a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and earned her Master's Degree in Counseling, Rehabilitation, and Student Development in 2010 from the University of Iowa. Shannon has extensive experience treating adults, both individuals and couples with a special interest and expertise in reproductive and maternal mental health. She enjoys working with pregnant women and mothers who may be experiencing difficulties with role changes and identity shifts as a result of pregnancy and motherhood, as well as mothers who are experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety. Shannon remains committed to ongoing learning and professional growth and has continued her education with a variety of trainings including the 12-hour post-graduate Postpartum Depression training at The Postpartum Stress Center as well as with the completion of the Postpartum Support International Maternal Mental Health certificate training. She is the first person in the state to become certified in Perinatal Mental Health. Shannon also completed "Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Anxiety-Related Disorders" training at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy in Pennsylvania. Shannon's other professional interests include, but are not limited to the treatment of anxiety disorders, self-esteem, women's issues, codependency, and couples issues.

She is currently a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association, Postpartum Support International, and Postpartum Support International Iowa Chapter. Recognizing Postpartum Conditions Post-partum depression is a large part of perinatal mental health. However, there's a lot more to it. Shannon discusses how anxiety, traumatic stress, and so many other conditions are common after the birth of a child. She explains the need for adequate mental health services for women with these conditions as well as those who've experienced fertility issues, pregnancy and infancy loss, and traumatic birth experiences. In fact, most women experience a significant hormonal shift for the first few weeks after childbirth. Known as the “baby blues”, these mood-affecting hormonal fluctuations are perfectly normal. Things only become a problem when postpartum issues begin to impact the quality of life. Shannon isn't so concerned about the nature of intrusive thoughts that occur after childbirth. Instead, she focuses on reducing levels of distress. Preparing for Postpartum Difficulties Perhaps the best way to handle the difficult postpartum period is to be prepared for it. Shannon discusses how she sets women up for success well before birth. Open discussions with your partner are key. Part of this is being clear on caregiving roles and responsibilities and being open about mental health concerns. Most of all, Shannon wants us to recognize that we don't have to do it all and to ask for help when we need it. We also talk about how to react during stressful situations that are out of our control. You can do things on a daily basis to prevent stress. You can also prepare ahead of time to manage stress when it occurs. Shannon shares how setting healthy boundaries and expectations will help limit or prevent stress. How can you set boundaries to manage stress before the postpartum period begins? Leave a comment on the episode page!

Quotes “Traumatic birth is one of the risk factors for dealing with postpartum mood or anxiety disorder. So being able to process that experience, work through it, and heal from it is super important.” [4:40] “The content of the thought and how graphic it is, does not concern me. That has no clinical value to me. What I'm most concerned about is their level of distress associated with it.” [11:05] “If you are struggling, the sooner [you're evaluated] the better because what we know is that earlier intervention will help you feel better faster.” [21:39] “Keep expectations low. Don't put so much on your plate because it's so important to have some downtime to restore.” [25:55] In This Episode What perinatal mental health is and why it's important [3:35] Typical postpartum expectations and the “baby blues” [5:25] Signs that you may be experiencing postpartum OCD and how to address it [8:40] How to prepare for the postpartum period [11:45] The hormonal shifts that occur during and after pregnancy [15:50] Tips for managing stress [24:10] Links & Resources Use Code OMEGA3 for 10% off Omega3 Supplements Find Shannon Wilson online Follow Shannon on Facebook | Instagram The Postpartum Stress Center Find Your Longevity Blueprint Online Follow Your Longevity Blueprint on Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | LinkedIn Get your copy of the Your Longevity Blueprint book and claim your bonuses here Find Dr. Stephanie Gray and Your Longevity Blueprint online Follow Dr. Stephanie Gray on Facebook | Instagram | Youtube | Twitter | LinkedIn Integrative Health and Hormone Clinic Podcast Production by the team at Counterweight Creative Related Episodes Episode 22: My Top Anxiety Tips

In this “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) episode, Peter and Bob discuss the longevity benefits from greater cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and greater muscle mass and strength. Conversely, they dive deep into the literature showing a rapid increase in morbidity and mortality risk as fitness levels decline with age. They also try to tease out the relative contributions of CRF, muscle mass, and strength. Additionally, they discuss the impact of fasting on muscle mass, the potential tradeoffs to consider, and finish by discussing why it's critical to maximize your fitness level.

On episode 231 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we are welcomed by former USAF fighter pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Chris Lehto. With over eighteen years of flying, he worked as the Commander of the US Detachment at the Tactical Leadership Programme in Albacete, Spain. As Chief of Flying Branch, he oversaw the execution of three flying courses with no safety incidents. Previous to his final assignment, as Training Systems Assistant Director of Operations for the 56th Training Squadron at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, he directed the development, procurement, and sustainment of F-16 simulator training. He overseas program officers for two simulator contracts and represents Luke as F-16 training systems subject matter expert.After Lehto saw the Navy UFO videos, it definitely caught his attention. Especially when he noticed that several of them had been debunked. So he decided to debunk the debunkers and use his eighteen years of flying to give us an inside glimpse of what the pilots may have experienced during these dramatic events. Today, he walks us through some of the more interesting aspects of the Navy UFO videos, his first real-world combat flight, and so much more as we continue our conversation of UFOs in 2021 and beyond.Subscribe to his YouTube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/c/ChrisLehtoF16VOTE for Somewhere in the Skies in the 2021 Paranormal Podcast Awards! https://bit.ly/3j4ijTgPatreon: www.patreon.com/somewhereskiesWebsite: www.somewhereintheskies.comYouTube Channel: CLICK HEREOfficial Store: CLICK HERESomewhere in the Skies Coffee! https://bit.ly/3mIAq2oOrder Ryan's book in paperback, ebook, or audiobook by CLICKING HERETwitter: @SomewhereSkiesInstagram: @SomewhereSkiesPodSomewhere in the Skies Subreddit: www.reddit.com/r/SomewhereSkiesPod/Watch Mysteries Decoded for free at www.CWseed.comEpisode edited by Jane Palomera MooreOpening Theme Song, "Ephemeral Reign" by Per KiilstofteSOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES is part of the eOne podcast network.

Investigating cases, you want to talk to every person that might have knowledge especially the people Brenda saw the next day. Brenda was very busy the next day, we know by her phone that she saw Matthew Kirk and Karen Petree. I already spoke to Matthew, and I went to Sherman High School to talk to Karen. Chris Hawkins a private investigator and I teamed up to work together on this case. Chris and I went to the High School prior to first class and sat down with Karen. Karen described what Brenda had told her, however, there was hesitation from her. We knew she had more knowledge which led her to a deposition. The legal definition of a deposition is a formal statement that someone who has promised to tell the truth makes so that the statement can be used in court. Karen was subpoenaed to appear for a deposition to tell the truth and what she knew about the case surrounding Jonathan's death. Listen to bits and pieces of Karen's deposition.
