Island country in the Indian Ocean
To celebrate the lives of loved ones after they have passed away is nothing new. Many communities cling to memories, stories and anything else that makes them feel as close as possible to those who have died. For the Malagasy people, an Austronesian ethnic group native to the island country of Madagascar, this desire to remain close to lost loved ones is viewed in a more literal sense with a funerary tradition known as Famadihana - the turning of the bones. With the belief that the spirits of the dead only finally join the world of the ancestors after the body's complete decomposition, this ceremony involves exhuming the bodies of loved ones, replacing the silk cloth wrapped around them, and celebrating their lives as they are once again laid to rest. Volana Razafimanatsoa explores the shifting spiritual landscape amongst the Malagasy people in the 21st Century, joining a family celebrating their loved ones and discovering what the future holds for one of their most cherished traditions.

We can't wait to get to Portugal to race one of Bruno's races one of these days!To say that Hugo Tormento is on absolute fire since racing ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship where he finished third with Matthieu Poullian (You can hear all about their race on Episode 92 of the podcast) would be the understatement of the year! Hugo won ÖTILLÖ Cannes with Max Andersson, won ÖTILLÖ Malta with Adriel Young (Adriel has also had a legendary year in his own right with 9 podiums--8 wins and one second place--in 9 races this year), and then a week later (this past weekend) won Swimrun Reunion (an race on an island off of the coast of Madagascar) with Heneman Guillaume. And if that wasn't enough, he finished 11th in the Aquathlon World Championships just two weeks after Cannes.In other news, if you're already planning your 2022 calendar like we are, heads up that Swimrun Costa Brava announced that next year's race will be on April 23 and registration is open now. Over in the U.K., Mad Hatter Sports opened registration for their Hokey Cokey Swimrun that is taking place on May 21st.Here in the U.S., Ödyssey Swimrun will be announcing their 2022 race lineup soon so make sure that you sign up for their newsletter and/or follow them on the socials for updates on that.That's it for this week.

They are just the best! We're lucky to have them come back on show to share their historic experience at ÖTILLÖ Malta. Why historic? Because they are the first American team to ever win an ÖTILLÖ race. They are also the first team to ever podium an ÖTILLÖ race (Isles of Scilly in 2019.) They are great ambassadors for U.S. Swimrunning and also happen to be the nicest and most generous athletes around. They've contributed to a bunch of our course preview shows and whenever they dispense advice, we listen.It was great to hear about their experience in Malta and we think that everyone will enjoy this interview.That's it for this week's show.

Oh Frances, our Frances! Why has it taken so long for us to record an episode about the Top 5 Best Frances McDormand Roles, you may be wondering? Well, every time we almost started a list, she came out with another movie that was freaking amazing! We just gave up. She will always be creating wondrous new art, and with her adaptation of The Tragedy of Macbeth coming out this year, it was nigh time we discussed her acting domination. From Blood Simple to Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, J, Cortney, and Mia are talking through everything we've loved Frances in and talk about what makes her such a stellar actor. Can you think of a time she wasn't amazing? Yeah, even in Transformers 3. That's what we thought! Come celebrate Frances the Queen with us on this week's episode of High Five: The Podcast!
Wakati mkutano wa mabadiliko ya tabianchi ungali ukiendelea huko Glasgow, Scotland, ukame unazidi kushika kasi kusini mwa Madagascar na watu wakiingia mwaka wa tano bila ya mvua hali inayowalazimu wananchi kula dungusi kakati kwa kuwa ndio mmea pekee unaoota kwenye maeneo yao. (Taarifa ya Leah Mushi) Mito! Ardhi Kame! Vumbi na watu wakisaka maji kwenye eneo kavu! Ni taswira kutoka angani kupitia video ya shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la Mpango wa chakula duniani WFP ya kijiji cha Marofanony kilichoko kusini mwa Madagascar! Ardhini timu ya WFP inalakiwa na upepo mkali ukipeperusha mchanga na mmea ulioshamiri zaidi ni Dungusi kakati. Hivi ndivyo tunavyokula, anasema Masy Celestinea ambaye amekutwa akikusanya majani ya mmea wa dungusi kakati, ambayo bado hata hayajatoa matunda. Licha ya mjukuu wake aliyekuwa na miezi 8 kufariki kutokana na kula mbegu nyingi za tunda hili Masy anasema bado hawezi kuacha kula. “Watu wote wa hapa kijijini tunakula haya majani. Kwa sababu ni miaka mitano imepita tangu mvua inyeshe. Wale waliokuwa na mifugo sasa hawana tena, kwa sababu wameuza ng'ombe zote. Angalia mazao yetu, hakuna majani yanayokua, hata moja. Unapopita kwenye barabara, unaweza kuona, ni kavu. Kuna upepo wa mchanga tu.” Ziara ya WFP katika kijiji hiki imekuja na faraja ambapo watoto wanapimwa kiwango cha utapiamlo huku wazazi nao wakipata msaada wa mahindi, mafuta, chumvi na vyakula vyenye virutubisho kwa ajili ya akina mama na watoto walioathirika na ukame. Naibu Mkurugenzi Mkazi wa WFP nchini Magadascar Arduino Mangoni anasema aliyoyaona yanahuzunisha "Kwa sababu ya ukame, kwa sababu ya dhoruba za mchanga, hili ni jambo jipya ambalo limejidhihirisha katika miaka michache iliyopita, bei ya vyakula imepanda kwa sababu ya uzalishaji duni wa kilimo na watu hawana chakula cha kutosha ... hawana. Sina pesa za kuwapatia chakula na viwango vya utapiamlo vinaongezeka. Watu hawa hawajachangia mabadiliko ya tabianchi lakini wao ndio wanalipa gharama ya juu zaidi.” Masy anahitimisha kwa kuwaeleza viongozi walioko kwenye mkutano wa COP26 huko Glasgow kuwa “Unajua msitu una uhai wake, binadamu ana uhai wake, msitu una damu yake, na sisi wanadamu pia. Nina huzuni kwa sababu mvua hainyeshi tena, na Madagascar ni mwathirika wake. Nina huzuni kwa sababu mvua hainyeshi. Hakuna hata umande, lakini upepo mkali tu unavuma, kwa hivyo nina moyo wa huzuni. inanivunja moyo.”
Karibu kusikiliza jarida, leo ni siku ya kimataifa ya kupinga uonevu shuleni na mitandaoni ambapo UNESCO imetaka watoto kulindwa zaidi, WFP imetoa msaada kwa wananchi wa Madagascar wanaoishi katika ukame na hivyo kulazimika kula mmea wa Dungusi kakati. Pia utasikia kauli ya Rais wa COP26 huko Glasgow kuhusu nchi tajiri kutoa fedha za kupambana na athari za mabadiliko ya tabianchi.

People in Madagascar are facing what the UN's food aid agency says could be the world's first climate-induced famine. We talk to Tsina Endor, the deputy director of the NGO SEED Madagascar, about the dire situation. We also hear about how farmers across Africa are trying to adapt to a changing climate, from Anita Sutha, a Ghanaian farmer; and Agnes Kalibata, the president of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa.
We examine how climate change is driving migration, as people around the world face threats to their homes, livelihoods and food supplies. We start in Bangladesh, where efforts are well underway to support thousands displaced by climate change every year. Matt Galloway talks to Saleemul Huq, the director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh; and Amiera Sawas, the director of programmes and research at Climate Outreach. Then, people in Madagascar are facing what the UN's food aid agency says could be the world's first climate-induced famine. We talk to Tsina Endor, the deputy director of the NGO SEED Madagascar, about the dire situation. We also hear about how farmers across Africa are trying to adapt to a changing climate, from Anita Sutha, a Ghanaian farmer; and Agnes Kalibata, the president of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa. Plus, we meet a farmer in Burkina Faso who raps about climate change. Art Melody sees its impact as he works his farm — and he hopes that making music about it will help create awareness and action. And Canada doesn't currently recognize climate change as a reason to apply for asylum, something some advocates say will have to change as climate change drives more migration and displacement. We talk to Blake Davis, the operations director at Global Response Management; Warda Shazadi Meighen, a partner at Landings Law and an adjunct professor of Refugee Law at the University of Toronto; and Amali Tower, the founder and executive director of Climate Refugees.
In Madagascar thousands of people in the southern part of the country are experiencing famine-like conditions. Over a million more are considered to be on the brink of famine. The crisis in Southern Madagascar is a direct consequence of climate change. This region has experienced successive droughts -- the rainy season is shorter, the lean season is longer and farmers are unable to plant their crops. This is widely considered to be the world's first climate-change induced famine. On the line with me to explain the link between climate change and the famine like conditions in Southern Madagascar is Mandipa Manchacha, human rights researcher at Amnesty international's souther Africa regional office. We kick off with a discussion about Madagascar more broadly and the impact of climate change on the island before having a broader conversation about the brutal intersection of climate change and famine in Southern Madagascar.
Al menos 110 países, que acogen el 85% de los bosques del planeta, han firmado una declaración en la COP+26 comprometiéndose a detener y revertir la deforestación para 2030. Madagascar sufre la primera hambruna causada por el cambio climático, asegura el Programa Mundial de Alimentos. Casi un 90% de los asesinatos de periodistas quedan impunes, según las estadísticas de la UNESCO.
As world leaders gather in Glasgow you can be certain of one thing - the loudest voices won't be coming from the people most impacted by climate change. Inuit hunters on melting ice and Pacific islanders losing their homelands to rising sea levels won't be flying Business Class to Glasgow - they won't have the chance to fight for their rights amongst the world powers and corporate interests. Tom Heap brings those voices to the banks of the Clyde for the first of two special editions of Costing the Earth from COP26. He hears from the Adivasi people of India, marching to stop their land being taken for new coal mines and meets Yessie Mosby, a Torres Strait islander who believes the Australian government should do much more to prevent his islands disappear beneath the rising seas. In Glasgow he talks to Sarobidy Rakotonarivo about the tensions between conservation and livelihoods in the forests of Madagascar and hears how conflict and climate change are inextricably linked in the humanitarian crisis around Lake Chad.

Madagascar est au bord de la famine, en particulier le sud du pays. Raison principale : le changement climatique. L'insécurité alimentaire ne cesse de s'aggraver et touche 1,5 million de personnes. De plus les enfants souffrant de malnutrition aigüe sévère sont en augmentation : ces deux derniers mois l'UNICEF, le Fond des Nations Unies pour l'enfance, a traité 14.000 enfants, un chiffre normalement enregistré au cours de toute une année. Jean Benoit Manhes est le Représentant adjoint de l'UNICEF dans le pays. Il explique que le manque d'eau conduit les populations locales à utiliser n'importe quelle source d'eau, ce qui va créer des maladies, des diarrhées qui vont déjà affaiblir les enfants. Cet affaiblissement, lorsqu'il est combiné à une insuffisance alimentaire, va conduire l'enfant à la malnutrition aiguë sévère. L'UNICEF est sur le terrain dans les 3 régions les plus les plus impactées, avec des personnels qui représentent tous les secteurs, l'eau, la santé et la nutrition, la protection de l'enfance et l'éducation.

Carmelo Piazza and his wife, Karen, own and run the Brooklyn Preschool of Science, or more accurately, the Brooklyn Preschools of Science since they have three locations. Carmelo, a former Science Teacher, founded the schools as a way to use his love and hands on teaching methods to holistically educate preschoolers. Using science as a base, they teach math, art, language skills and much more in an exciting and fun way that truly engages kids in science at a very young age.Episode NotesCarmelo is naturally fun and engaging and his love for science, teaching and kids comes clearly through in our conversation. At this young preschool age, kids have no notion of gender stereotypes which allows Carmelo, his wife, and staff of educators to just teach and to engage kids in a love for science regardless of their gender. They just teach and use science as its base.Carmelo shares how he went from teaching science in the public school system, to starting his own preschools, his goals and dreams for the future of taking his program national and being a thought leader in this type of education. His curriculum and teaching methods are so engaging and inspirational, they make me want to go back to pre-school! Carmelo has a YouTube Channel, a children's book of science experiments using household items, and has appeared on many TV shows, podcasts, and other media. He even has a moniker of "Carmelo the Science Fellow".Music used in the podcast: Higher Up, Silverman Sound StudioAcronyms, Definitions, and Fact CheckBrooklyn Preschool of Science: https://brooklynpreschoolofscience.comCarmelo the Science Fellow YouTube Channel: http://carmelothesciencefellow.com/videos/Crazy for Science with Carmelo the Science Fellow, by Carmelo Piazza : https://www.amazon.com/Crazy-Science-Carmelo-Fellow/dp/1576876829/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Carmelo+the+science+fellow+book&qid=1634601117&sr=8-1Inquiry-based learning is more than asking a student what he or she wants to know. It's about triggering curiosity. And activating a student's curiosity is, I would argue, a far more important and complex goal than mere information delivery. (https://www.edutopia.org/blog/what-heck-inquiry-based-learning-heather-wolpert-gawron)Pedagogy, most commonly understood as the approach to teaching, is the theory and practice of learning, and how this process influences, and is influenced by, the social, political and psychological development of learners.

(Wikipedia)The water bug is a bug that looks like a cockroach, but isn't technically part of the roach family. A true water bug is an aquatic insect that lives in the water. Waterbugs hold their breath for a long time without resurfacing. The one cockroach that is commonly referred to as a water bug is the Oriental cockroach. Because they frequent pipes and plumbing, they are commonly called a waterbug. (https://www.myheronhome.com)
Le dérèglement du climat risque-t-il de devenir l'un des pires dictateurs du XXIe siècle ? L'ONG Amnesty International sonne en tout cas l'alarme, à l'approche de la COP 26 à Glasgow. Dans un rapport, elle montre comment, dans le sud de Madagascar, la sécheresse prive les populations de leurs droits les plus élémentaires. Sabine Gagnier, Responsable du programme protection des populations à Amnesty International France, appelle les dirigeants mondiaux à agir pour réduire les émissions de CO2 et aider les populations affectées par ce changement climatique. RFI : Quels sont les témoignages que vous avez rassemblés sur la situation dans le sud de Madagascar ? Sabine Gagnier : Le sud de Madagascar a subi quatre épisodes consécutifs de sécheresse qui ont anéanti les récoltes et qui ont entravé l'accès des populations à la nourriture. Le dernier épisode de sécheresse en date a commencé en novembre 2020 et il s'est poursuivi jusqu'en janvier 2021. Il y a plus d'un million de personnes qui sont au bord de la famine. Nous avons eu plusieurs témoins qui nous ont dit avoir perdu des enfants en bas âge à cause de la sécheresse que le pays est en train de subir actuellement. Ce qu'on constate et qui a été confirmé par les données scientifiques, c'est que sur les cinq dernières années, les précipitations ont été en chute drastique, donc le pays a manqué d'eau, ce qui a eu une conséquence dramatique sur les cultures. Dans ce contexte de sécheresse et de crise alimentaire, est-ce que la communauté internationale se mobilise assez ? Depuis les premiers signaux d'alerte, on trouve que la communauté internationale n'est pas assez réactive pour apporter une aide humanitaire d'urgence, il y a encore des gens qui se nourrissent de cactus… Ce qu'il faut faire aujourd'hui face à ce constat dramatique à Madagascar, c'est qu'il faut apporter une aide humanitaire au pays de toute urgence… mais ce n'est pas seulement une question humanitaire, il y a vraiment un problème et une responsabilité en matière de crise climatique. Il se trouve que ce sont les pays industrialisés qui ont une responsabilité historique dans les émissions de gaz à effet de serre, donc il faut que les pays les plus riches et industrialisés apportent une aide humanitaire d'urgence, mais aussi agissent sur la crise climatique elle-même et s'engagent à réduire au maximum les émissions de gaz à effet de serre. ►À lire aussi : C'est pas du vent – Comment faire changer l'agroécologie d'échelle sur le continent africain ? Pourquoi est-ce qu'Amnesty International s'implique dans la question du changement climatique ? Quels sont les liens que vous établissez entre changement climatique et droits humains ? Ce qu'il faut comprendre, c'est qu'il y a un effet « domino ». En fait, la crise climatique a des conséquences dramatiques sur les droits humains. S'il y a une sécheresse, les populations ne peuvent plus se nourrir puisque les terres ne sont plus fertiles. Si les populations ne peuvent plus se nourrir, il y a un impact sur le droit à la vie, et ensuite il y a des séries de conséquences sur le droit à l'éducation puisque les enfants qui survivent ne peuvent même plus aller à l'école le ventre vide, le droit à l'eau, à l'assainissement, et donc la crise climatique, c'est une crise des droits humains. Ne pas agir contre la crise climatique, c'est une violation de droits humains Vous avez cette formule dans votre rapport : vous appelez tous les pays à s'engager lors de la prochaine COP en faveur d'objectif de réduction des émissions de CO2 à la fois « ambitieux », et « respectueux des droits humains ». Ne pas limiter les émissions de CO2, c'est violer d'une certaine manière les droits humains ? Ne pas agir contre la crise climatique, c'est une violation de droits humains puisque la crise climatique a des impacts sur les droits de l'homme directement. Ça fait des années que la communauté scientifique et la société civile interpellent les gouvernements sur ce sujet du réchauffement climatique, et on le sait les conséquences deviennent de plus en plus dramatiques. Les conséquences se font déjà sentir sur les pays les plus pauvres et les populations les plus défavorisées, c'est un phénomène mondial et il est vraiment temps de réagir. Quel est le message d'Amnesty international aux responsables qui participeront à la COP26 ? On les appelle à s'engager en faveur d'objectif de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre pour absolument maintenir l'élévation de la température moyenne de la planète en dessous de 1,5 °C. Il faut aussi que les dirigeants s'engagent à abandonner rapidement les énergies fossiles, parce qu'on sait qu'elles sont responsables d'effets désastreux et d'émissions de gaz à effet de serre conséquentes, et il faut qu'ils arrivent à mettre en place un mécanisme mondial pour soutenir les personnes dont les droits sont affectés. ► Le rapport d'Amnesty International (en français, anglais ou malgache) est disponible sur le site de l'ONG.

More than one million people in southern Madagascar are going hungry in what the World Food Programme (WFP) believes could become the first-ever famine brought on by climate change. Successive years of drought have forced people in rural communities to eat locusts, fruit and cactus leaves because they have been unable to plant or harvest sweet potatoes, tomatoes and other crops. Alice Rahmoun, WFP Communications Officer in the capital, Antananarivo, was in the region recently. She said families have been selling prized assets, such as cattle, farmland and even homes, to survive. Ms. Rahmoun spoke to Dianne Penn about the UN agency's support to some 700,000 people, with plans to reach more, and hopes for the COP26 climate change conference which opens later this month in Glasgow, Scotland.

Welcome back to Season Six of Happy Porch Radio. Today, we are joined by Julia Venn from Foodwise, a social enterprise which fights against food waste, and food insecurity by helping businesses repurpose their own food in order to help people in need. We talk to Julia about the importance of distinguishing between contexts across Africa's diverse countries, and how she came to leave Germany to co-found Foodwise Mauritius, Morocco, Ivory Coast, and Madagascar. She unpacks the important work that Foodwise does and how it ties in with the circular economy, and shares the powerful insight that we can't talk about Africa in the homogenous way we do about Europe. You'll also hear about her experience navigating cultural differences, and why she believes that there is something to be learned from each culture, even if they don't use the same terminology. We hope you tune in today to hear all this and more!

The Aye Aye is one of the world's most misunderstood and endangered primates. Native to Madagascar, Aye Ayes have been targeted and killed by locals due to superstitions. Coupled with massive loss of habitat and other pressures, this species is on a beeline towards extinction. The Aye Aye is also one of the world's most unique primates and has radical physiology compared to other primates. Sadly, Madagascar has had a horrific year with not only the covid pandemic, but is experiencing one of the worst famines in their modern times. Thankfully, conservationists from around the globe and within Madagascar are responding in a fight to save species like the Aye Aye. This unique animal has so much to teach us and deserves our attention and help. For one cup of "good" coffee a month you can support your favorite podcast on Patreon and give back to conservation.

There I was, living my tidy little mainstream Protestant life, when Karl Barth sprung the Blumhardts on me. Took a few years (or decades) to follow up, but now I (and even Dad) have become fans of these indigenous German Lutheran revivalists. In this episode we discuss the difference between revivals stemming from European Pietist roots and from American roots, cover the lives of Johann Christoph Blumhardt (who proclaimed Christ's victory over the devil) and his son Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (who proclaimed Christ's victory over the Christian), reflect on the complementary roles and mutual need of church and revival for one another, and speculate that "renewal" might after all be a better term than revival, in more ways than one. Notes: 1. Ising, Johann Christoph Blumhardt, Life and Work 2. Zahl, Pneumatology and Theology of the Cross in the Preaching of Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt (and by all means check out his newer book, The Holy Spirit and Christian Experience) 3. Winn, Jesus Is Victor! The Significance of the Blumhardts for the Theology of Karl Barth 4. Weiss, Jesus' Proclamation of the Kingdom of God 5. Among my writings on these topics, see: A Guide to Pentecostal Movements for Lutherans; "How Is Your Revival Going?"; blog posts in my Lutheran saint series on Johann Christoph Blumhardt and Gottlieben Dittus, and Christoph Friedrich; and keep your eyes open for a forthcoming book on Nenilava, the prophetess of Madagascar! 6.

Our busting of spooky Halloween animals continues as we take a not so spooky look at ravens and aye-ayes. We first learn what's the difference between a raven and a crow as well as learn that not all black birds are the same (you ignorance ass). Ravens are the bigger and better bird species (if I'm allowed to be biased and since this is my weird animal podcast, I am!). We also take a dive in to multiple folklore of the raven; such as Norse mythology of both Odin and Loki, Pacific Northwestern Native tribes tales and were George RR Martin got the inspiration for Bran from. But of course, most of us, thanks to Edgar Allen Poe and Brandon Lee's The Crow (they used a Raven in that movie, not at crow) are very familiar with the idea of what a raven is; but what about an aye-aye? If you have never heard of an aye aye, you are not alone. Its a primate lemur from Madagascar and one of the creepiest, weirdest looking animals on the planet. Tune in to this episode to find out just how weird this primate is.And to learn more or even donate to lemur and aye-aye conservation consider on clicking and donating to anyone of these wonderful conservation efforts:https://lemur.duke.edu/https://www.lemurreserve.org/Scientific NamesCommon Raven: Corvus coraxAye-Aye: Daubentonia madagascariensis Instagram @wafpodcasttiktok @wafpodcastEmail: email@example.com**NEW FACEBOOK PAGE**Facebook: "Weird Animal Facts: Explicit"Support the show (https://www.ko-fi.com/wafpodcast)

My friend Spencer Cottle joins us to share his story as a gay Latter-day Saint. Spencer, who grew up in Williamsburg Virginia, talks about coming out in 2018 to his bishop and parents (good experience) prior to his successful mission to Madagascar. Once home from his mission, Spencer talks about needing to face and address the realities of figuring out his future as a gay Latter-day Saint. That led to deeply spiritual experience that Spencer shares on the podcast and feelings about his best path forward. Spencer, who sang in the BYU Choir at October General Conference, also talks about the excellent support he is receiving from parents, family and roommates. Thank you Spencer for being on the podcast. You are a remarkable talented man with a wonderful future. Thank you for sharing your story and helpful insights to help bring us together. You have a great life ahead of you!

This conversation was first posted on the Hunkered Down Podcast on June 5, 2020.J.T. Rogers urge to move is reflected in the dynamism of his Tony Award-winning play "Oslo" and in the way he perambulated around his office during our conversation. Clearly, this artist thinks on his feet.“Oslo” -- first produced on Broadway in 2017 -- is a heart-wrenching telling of the back-channel meetings started by a Norwegian couple to bring Palestinian and Israeli leaders together to talk about peace—person to person. Of course, in the end, the resulting Oslo Accords failed to bring peace to the region.J. T. Rogers' works include: One Giant Leap, Blood and Gifts, The Overwhelming, White People, and Madagascar. “Oslo” was his first Broadway play.Alan Winson, interviewer.

Early in her career, wildlife ecologist Rae Wynn-Grant joined an expedition to Madagascar to track the elusive ring-tailed lemur. But the trip had an unexpected personal outcome: it convinced her that this was the work she was meant to do. That was a long time coming for Wynn-Grant, who'd grown up loving TV shows on nature but found herself initially hating her college ecology courses because she felt out of place as a Black woman who'd never been camping and surrounded by people with very different backgrounds. In this episode from the new podcast Going Wild with Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant, she shares the story of how an experience with a lemur helped her find her find her confidence and her voice. This episode was brought to you by Avocado Green Brands, maker of the 100 percent organic-certified Avocado Mattress, which helps outdoor athletes get the restful sleep they really need.

Andy Richter (Conan, Madagascar, Three Questions with Andy Richter podcast) opens up about his childhood, mental health struggles, and his almost 30-year tenure as a late night tv sidekick. He details his experience with depression and lack of self-assuredness at an early age, and explains what lured him to performing. Andy describes the lack of agency and confusion he felt for being okay with his role as a sidekick, learning to be by himself and navigate the dating world after divorce, and what might be next for his professional career. Mayim and Andy consider the benefits of therapy and medication, the importance of mental healthcare for low income individuals, and the psychological benefits of having a dog. Mayim discusses ways to manage mental health while grieving in another installment of Ask Mayim Anything.Andy Richter's Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-three-questions-with-andy-richter/id1468533126BialikBreakdown.comYouTube.com/mayimbialik
