Lulu Miller, intrepid host and fearless mother of two, went off on her own and put together a little something for kids. All kids: hers, yours, and the one still living inside us all.  Radiolab for Kids Presents: Terrestrials And it's spellbinding. So much so, that we wanted to put this audio goodness in front of as many ears as possible.  Which is why we're running the first episode of that series here for you today.  It's called The Mastermind. In it, Sy Montgomery, an author and naturalist, shares the story of a color-changing creature many people assumed to be brainless who outsmarts his human captors. If you want a SPOILER of what the creature is, read on: It's an octopus. We hear the story of one particularly devious octopus who lost a limb, was captured by humans, and then managed to make an escape from its aquarium tank—back into the ocean! The tale of “Inky” the octopus calls into question who we think of as intelligent (and kissable) in the animal kingdom. Learn about the storytellers, listen to music, and dig deeper into the stories you hear on Terrestrials with activities you can do at home or in the classroom on our website, Terrestrialspodcast.org  Find MORE original Terrestrials fun on Youtube.And badger us on Social Media: @radiolab and #TerrestrialsPodcast And if your little ones or you want to hear more of Team Terrestrials amazing work on this series, please search for Radiolab for Kids Presents: The Mastermind, wherever you get podcasts.  Terrestrials is a production of WNYC Studios, created by Lulu Miller. This episode is produced by Ana González, Alan Goffinski and Lulu Miller. Original Music by Alan Goffinski. Help from Suzie Lechtenberg, Sarah Sandbach, Natalia Ramirez, and Sarita Bhatt. Fact-checking by Diane Kelley. Sound design by Mira Burt-Wintonick with additional engineering by Joe Plourde. Our storyteller this week is Sy Montgomery. Transcription by Caleb Codding.

The Cabarrus County School Board are reviewing the district's policies guiding age-appropriate books in school libraries. According to the Charlotte Observer: Board members during a meeting Monday night agreed books have “fallen through the cracks” despite some policies being in place, member Carolyn Carpenter said. One of those books, “Looking for Alaska,” an award-winning teen novel by John Green, has been at the center of drama between the board and hundreds of parents who believe the board will enact policies that make it easier to ban books and learning materials someone deems offensive. The board discussed a draft policy Monday but made no decision. Instead, all seven board members decided a pair of committees dedicated to instructional materials and board policies should discuss the draft first. Opponents accused the Board and parents of wanting to ban books and undermining teachers and librarians. Meanwhile, a teacher in Tennessee made a video that went viral outlining the laborious process she had to go through to ensure her 3rd Grade class did not provide objectionable books to third graders.  Get exclusive content here!: https://thepetekalinershow.com/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

What was the strange creature that has come to be known as Octoman? (The Ohio Octoman) *** Drivers were convinced they'd spotted the infamous Blue Bell Hill ghost on the A229 in February 2019. That was the last time the ghost was spotted – and some believe it wasn't really the ghost at all, but something else. (The Ghost of Blue Bell Hill) *** There are plenty of ghost stories in the Lake Placid area, but probably the most unique and mysterious is the story of the Lady in the Lake. So mysterious is this ghost that it has inspired many authors and filmmakers – but the true story is more creepy than any ghost story. (The Lady In Lake Placid) *** In the early days of those reaching the New World, superstitions and unusual beliefs about others, even your own neighbors, were commonplace. Most anyone could be accused of being a witch. And I do mean anyone. Be thankful you weren't one of the first settlers to live in America. (American Witches) *** Gigantic spiders are reported worldwide, yet we have yet to actually capture one to prove their existence or study them to see how they grow so large.

Miles, or Pudge as he is often referred to, is searching for the "Great Perhaps". To him, that means something beyond the mundane. After much persuasion, his parents enroll him in a boarding school in Alabama. It's there that Miles finds not only a taste of the "Great Perhaps" but also himself. His infatuation with his classmates, mainly a girl named Alaska, led him down a path of self-growth and sorrow. John Green finds the perfect words to keep the readers invested in the personal development of Miles. He beautifully (in a way only John Green can) weaves sentences together to leave us in awe of the story. This novel is filled with tear-jerking events and we spend a great deal dissecting them all in this week's episode. Join us as we dive deep into Looking for Alaska by John Green.

This book and movie really moved me and made me evaluate how I made decisions in my life. Was I sacrificing my happiness? Or compromising? Am I settling? Or accepting? Well listen to Catherine and I talk and differentiate between the terms and discuss how this manifested in Lou as a character. Goodreads Summary: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me. They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . . Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living. A Love Story for this generation and perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn't have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

John is the author of the emotional New York Times bestselling novel, The Fault in Our Stars, which describes the lives and relationship between two young people living with cancer. He writes with love and gives life to experiences that are almost impossible to describe. He's humble, thoughtful, and their conversation brought Kasey comfort.
