Back in 2013 - 14, The Pubcast was a huge part of my business. Somewhere along the line, that changed. But for a few reasons, I wanted to take another shot at it. But it can't be a weak attempt. I have a plan. In this Shot, I break down what I'm doing and what I hope to accomplish.

I've been experimenting with podcasting on Facebook for a few weeks now, and I've gotta say that I'm bullish. I don't get excited about much.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Briney Mary bloody Mary from the Pittsburgh Pickle Company, which she looks forward to drinking every time she's in Pittsburgh. TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termites Jennifer and Steve, who made her laugh out loud in anticipation of putting on her new “Vodka Cranberry, Please” face mask when she boards an airplane. Termite April from Wyoming sent in a very cool Ranch dressing Christmas tree ornament, and Kentucky Termite Carolyn sent an awesome Time & Oak whiskey aging stick, which Kathleen can't wait to try with her brother Patrick. Finally, Termite Diane (from “south of Boston”) sent a very touching note which makes Mama T tear up, along with a gold ribbon representing support for Pediatric Cancer in honor of her granddaughter. UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, reporting that the Court has been quiet. She asks the Termites to vote for a new queen to try to shake up some new activity. What say you, Termites?“GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Jalapeno Popper Goldfish, which she doesn't like as much as original Goldfish crackers. She moves on to taste Marzetti Buttermilk Romano Ranch, which she finds to be VERY tangy but she likes the flavor. Kathleen finishes her tasting session with a dessert: Apple Cider Donut Oreos which she absolutely hates, comparing the taste to “eating perfume.” She then shares with listeners that growing up in the Midwest her dad preferred Hydrox cookies to Oreos, and now she misses the flavor of those cookies over any Oreo. NEW EXPLOSIVE BRITNEY SPEARS DOCUMENTARY: Kathleen continues down her months-long rabbit hole following the conservatorship of Britney Spears and the #FreeBritney movement. She reads details behind a new documentary released by FX and Hulu entitled “Controlling Britney Spears,” an unannounced follow-up to “Framing Britney Spears” covered in an earlier episode of the Pubcast. In it, several former friends and colleagues of Spears's came forward to offer new glimpses into the heretofore well-concealed world of her conservatorship.LULAROE'S CORPORATE SCANDALS: Kathleen is fascinated as she reads an article about multilevel marketing company LuLaRoe, and goes on to describe to listeners her thoughts after watching “LuLaRich,” Amazon's new docuseries about the creation of the company and their fraud that was eventually settled through the legal system. The brand succeeded by targeting a group of stay-at-home moms seeking financial security and extra income, and for a few years, LuLaRoe was quite good at spreading empowerment through selling printed clothes. The company generated $2.3 billion in sales in 2017. But then scandals started rocking the business, including allegations of moldy, low-quality products, copyright infringement, and lawsuits calling LuLaRoe a pyramid scheme. Kathleen feels terribly sorry for the victims who suffered after being involved in this scam, but also states that she has yet to see something overly successful come from buying into a business whose primary business mantra advertises that you can “Work From Home In Your Pajamas.”THERANOS VICTIM TESTIMONIALS: In her reporting from the Elizabeth Holmes Theranos trial currently taking place in California, Kathleen provides an update to Termites regarding victims who received incorrect test results from the Theranos technology which resulted in emotional trauma. TERM LIMITS AND GRASSLEY VS THURMOND: Kathleen has a bit in her act where she makes a pitch for term limits for politicians, and is appalled to read an article stating that Sen. Chuck Grassley recently announced that he will run for reelection in 2022 — a decision Republicans believe will give them their best chance to hold onto the coveted Senate seat. Grassley, 88, released the highly anticipated news in characteristically understated fashion, posting the news to Twitter with little additional fanfare.COMEDIAN'S INTERPRETATION OF CORPORATE EMAILS: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article on the underlying meaning behind buttoned-up corporate email language, and outlining how successful people communicate. She translates each email sample into “comic speak,” or how comedians (without an HR department) would address similar situations via email.MICHAEL FLYNN'S LATEST CONSPIRACY THEORY: Kathleen is bewildered when she reads an article where former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pushed a theory that COVID-19 vaccines are being snuck into salad dressing being sold in US supermarkets. Flynn was speaking this week to Clay Clark, the host of the conservative podcast "The Thrivetime Show.” Kathleen's comments can't necessarily be put into print ☺OSAGE INDIAN “PICTURE CAVE” SOLD IN MISSOURI: Kathleen reads an article from her home state of Missouri where the infamous Osage Indian “Picture Cave” was sold in September 2021 for over $2 million. More than 1,000 years ago, Indigenous people journeyed into a dark cave on the land now called Missouri and painted nearly 300 detailed images on its walls. The cave was a sacred space, where tribes performed ceremonies, made sense of the universe, and buried their dead. A millennium later, the paintings contained within it continue to offer clues about how those civilizations lived and what they believed. And for the Osage Nation, whose ancestors created much of the artwork in the cave, the sale came as a huge blow as it will prohibit access to their ancestral grounds. DISCOVERY OF OLDEST HUMAN FOOTPRINTS IN NORTH AMERICA: Kathleen reads an article announcing that 23,000-year-old footprints found in New Mexico recently could shed light on when humans arrived on the continent. Archaeological evidence, including spearheads used to kill mammoths, has long suggested a 13,500-year-old settlement was considered the continent's first civilization, and the forerunner of groups that became known as Native Americans.SPOTTING THE LOCH NESS MONSTER: Kathleen is a firm believer in the existence of the Loch Ness Monster and is thrilled to read an article stating that the Loch Ness Monster has been spotted by recent drone footage taken by a British outdoorsman paddling through Scotland's Loch Ness for a long-distance charity canoe trip. Watch the footage and state your opinions, Termites… WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary on Hulu, and “LuLaRich” on Amazon Prime.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Singing Frog Golden Lager from The Wynn in Las Vegas, sipping the beer from her Seamus McDaniel's pub pint glass. Kathleen then shares with the Termites all off her favorite highlights from her show at The Ryman in downtown Nashville, thrilled that she got to finally meet her Twitter friend Stella Parton, whom she can't wait to drink red wine with. Kathleen then gives an update on her birthday plans taking place on September 30th: she's going to the Ozarks to golf with her parents and see some friends, and then is excited to be heading to Johnny Morris's Big Cedar Lodge to golf with her siblings and cousins and drink in a cave bar. TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termites from the Savannah Bananas for her new baseball-style t-shirt, and from Termite Baba Valentino for the cool golf balls. She then thanks Termite Donna from Abilene, TX for her homemade Pubcast sign and funky gravy boat. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Drew's Creamy Ranch dressing from Vermont, which she loves. She moves on to taste Cap'N Crunch Chocolate Caramel Crunch, which she thinks is too sweet, and prefers Crunch Berries. Kathleen rounds out her tasting menu sampling the limited edition Cool Ranch Doritos, which she likes but still prefers the original or taco flavored Doritos. UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen has limited updates on the Queens this week, but hopes that recent music releases and tour activity will provide more activity for next week's report. MOBSTER TIED TO ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM DIES: Kathleen provides an update that alleged mobster Robert Gentile, thought to have been the last person alive with knowledge of who committed the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum art heist, has died at the age of 85 of a stroke. THERANOS TRIAL UPDATE: Kathleen continues her obsession with seeing the downfall of Elizabeth Holmes, providing an update on Theranos trial currently taking place in California. She reads an article specifically reviewing Holmes' crazy emails sent in the middle of the night to employees while she was at the company's helm, as well as her defense strategy of trying to block testimony on her extravagant personal expenses while SAM ADAMS' ILLEGAL BEER: Kathleen is thrilled to read an article announcing that brewer Sam Adams is releasing the latest beer in their Utopias collection, which is available in limited capacity every 2 years. This release is so strong, it's illegal in 15 states because this year, the brews carry a staggering 28 percent alcohol by volume or ABV. By comparison, the classic Samuel Adams Boston Lager is just 5 percent ABV.CHINA BANS KIDS FROM MIDWEEK GAMING: Kathleen reads an article from China where new rules recently published by China's National Press and Publication Administration are allowing kids and teens under 18 years old be limited to three hours per week to play online video games. Kathleen laughs at the outcry that would happen in the US if such a move was made. THE WORLD'S LARGEST CRUISE SHIP DEBUTS: Never being a lover of cruise ship travel, Kathleen reads an announcement from Royal Caribbean advising that their newest ship, the Wonder of the Seas, has been authenticated as the largest cruise ship in the world. Originally meant to set sail from China, the ship will now begin sailing from Florida to the Caribbean in March 2022. The Wonder of the Seas will feature 8 “neighborhoods” and revised amenities such as a full waterslide. All of Kathleen's thoughts on cruise ship travel can be heard on her bits “Cruise Ship Day 1” and “Cruise Ship Day 2.”THE OLDEST LOBSTER TRAPPER IN MAINE: Kathleen is thrilled to read an article from Maine profiling Virginia Oliver, who has been fishing for lobsters for over a century. Despite having surpassed the typical retirement age decades ago, the Rockland, Maine-based fisherwoman works with her son, Max, catching lobsters three days a week from May through November. Kathleen applauds Virginia's efforts and work ethic, stating that the only other person that she could envision working into a second century would be her father, Jack. THE ‘SUEZ CANAL ON RAILS' UNVEILED: As listeners know, Kathleen loves a train ride and has a mad appreciation for any improvement to infrastructure. She's envious to read of plans in Cairo, Egypt where the Egyptian government has signed a $4.45 billion deal for a high-speed electric rail line to link its Red Sea and Mediterranean coasts. The 410-mile rail link will include a mainline designed to carry more than 30 million passengers annually as well as a freight line and will run between the Red Sea port of Ain Sokhna and 2 Mediterranean ports. Kathleen laughs that she's waited her entire life for a train to connect St. Louis and the Lake of the Ozarks, and wouldn't care how fast it traveled as long as there was a bar car made available. RUSSIAN CHESS STAR SUES NETFLIX: Like many Termites, Kathleen loved the premises of the Netflix series “The Queen's Gambit.” She reads an update where a former Soviet chess champion, Nona Gaprindashvili, is suing Netflix for defamation over the incorrect chronological sequence of the final episode where Gaprindashvili is referenced by name as not having ever faced male opponents, when in fact she HAD by 1968, the year that the last episode was situated in. No further details have been released from Netflix, but you can bet that Mama T will be on the lookout for an update!HOW TO BE LIKE WARREN BUFFETT: (or at least eat like him ☺) Kathleen loves reading about billionaire Warren Buffett, not only because he's a true Midwest delight but also because he's chosen to remain in Omaha his entire life and doesn't mind sharing some of the simple financial practices that he uses in his everyday life. Kathleen reads an article that outlines 9 frugal habits of Buffett's that we can incorporate to save money, and she laughs at her own approach to “wealth management” and her arguments with her brother Patrick over the cost of a cup of Starbucks coffee. She DOES agree with Buffett's love of McDonald's Egg McMuffin for breakfast and recommends not skipping out on an accompanying Diet Coke just because you can save more money buying the soda by the 12-pack. RALEIGH'S LOST COLONY: Kathleen loves history, and is excited to read an article announcing that archaeologists are embarking on a search for the lost colony of Roanoke in an attempt to determine what happened to the 117 people who completely vanished after its settlement. It's one of the nation's great mysteries: The first permanent colony of English settlers in what would become the United States, specifically North Carolina in 1587 by Sir Walter Raleigh, disappeared three years after it was erected with virtually no trace.THE MOB CHILDREN VS THE FBI: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article announcing that a fugitive consigliere in Colombo crime family was recently arrested after his son taunted the FBI with a Florida poolside post of his father a day after his suspected mob family was arrested in a New York City raid. The taunting post was hurriedly deleted, but not in enough time for Federal Agents to screengrab the information and enact an arrest plan. Ralph DiMatteo, 66, was the only person mentioned in the federal indictment to evade arrest, and that's because it was able to be proven that he was soaking up the Florida rays. Kathleen muses that even “the children” can be caught at their own games.WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends finishing “Nine Perfect Strangers” on Hulu, continuing through Season 2 of “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” on Hulu, and also listening to upcoming weekly episodes of the ABC News podcast “The Dropout” that is closely following the Elizabeth Holmes trial.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Holy Donut Stout by Maine's Lone Pine Brewing, brought to her by her friend and fellow comedian Kelly MacFarland. She also gives a shoutout to Little Big Town for the “Day Drinking” trucker hat that was sent after Kathleen tasted their Day Drinking canned wine on a previous Pubcast. TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termite Adam, who made his mother proud by sending the completed set of South Carolina rocks glasses. Also big thanks to Termite Summer for the Trader Joe's Carolina Gold bbq sauce and the “Calm Down Karen” t-shirt. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, which she doesn't like because she doesn't like ANY pumpkin flavor (she and her dad always ask her mom to make a chocolate pie for any holiday), and then moves onto Taco Bell's Avocado Ranch sauce, which she recommends putting on anything. Kathleen finishes her tasting by sampling Cheeto's Crunch Pop Mix, telling Termites to stick with the original Cheeto's. ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM REVIEW: As a follow-up to Episode 38, Kathleen visited the ISGM when she was recently in Boston for shows. She describes the rooms and the artwork exhibited (which you can also see video of on her YouTube channel), with her favorite area being the iconic courtyard. Then in continuing to do the Lord's work, Kathleen mentions her official chowder tasting at Black Rose, the Chart House, and Legal Seafood in downtown Boston. UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, reporting that Queen Tanya has canceled the remainder of her 2021 Tour dates, stating that she needs to concentrate on rehabilitating her hip after her recent surgery. Tanya has also recorded a very cool song with RuPaul called “This Is Our Country,” which Kathleen recommends cranking UP and listening to. In super breaking bombshell news, Queen Stevie has delivered a TKO to former boyfriend and bandmate Lindsey Buckingham after his latest rant to the press challenging Stevie's involvement in his firing from Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham dissed all of his former bandmates in his tirades, which Kathleen advises is probably not the best way to approach a possible reunion. HIDDEN VALLEY HALLOWEEN: Kathleen is thrilled to read an announcement that Hidden Valley is releasing limited-edition Halloween treats for Ranch lovers, as well as a Ranch bottle costume. BALTO HOLMES AND MORE THERANOS TRIAL UNCERTAINTY: In another chapter of the saga of Elizabeth Holmes' lies, Kathleen reports to the Termites that in 2017, Vanity Fair reports that Holmes flew first-class across the U.S. to adopt a 9-week-old Siberian husky. She named him Balto after the world-famous sled dog that made a dangerous 600-mile journey in 1925, bearing medicine to save an entire village from diphtheria. Holmes went on to boast to people that Balto is a wolf, which his AKC paperwork states otherwise. Kathleen then goes into detail on the latest developments in the Theranos trial, including issues with jurors, the ways in which Holmes as altered her appearance to look more “maternal,” and the and exquisite home that she's residing in with her new baby and billionaire husband while on trial for fraud. RESURRECTING THE WOOLLY MAMMOTH: Kathleen reads an article outlining where scientists are making a pitch to resurrect the woolly mammoth from extinction. Colossal, a biosciences and genetics company, has raised $15 million to bring back the mammoth in an altered genetic form. The move could help restore the fragile Arctic tundra ecosystem, however, the ethical issues involved are creating a firestorm with the Genetics community. Kathleen asks listeners what they think of the campaign, and Paddles votes to proceed as long as the end result produces a mini mammoth (much like a baby goat). BITCOIN BECOMES LEGAL TENDER IN EL SALVADOR: As listeners of the Pubcast know, Kathleen holds mad love for cryptocurrency. She's thrilled to read an article announcing that El Salvador has adopted Bitcoin as an official currency alongside the US dollar. Supporters argue the move will make it cheaper and easier for migrants to send money home to El Salvador, which is important given such remittances account for over 24 percent of the country's gross domestic product, according to figures from the World Bank reported by CNBC. Baby steps for big gain states Mama T. RIPPER THE TALKING DUCK: Kathleen reads an article from New Zealand where a duck, who was raised in captivity in the late 1980s, was recorded uttering the phrase: “You bloody fool!” Scientists have analyzed the recordings, and have added musk ducks to a small number of animals able to imitate human speech.THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN THE USA: Kathleen is excited to announce that Money Magazine has evaluated big cities and small towns all over the US and has determined that the best place to live is Chanhassen, Minnesota. The magazine revealed its 35th annual "50 Best Places to Live" list last week, looking at metrics across nine different categories to create its definitive ranking for 2021-22. Situated southwest of the Twin Cities, Chanhassen made the #1 pick overall, with two additional cities in Minnesota making the top fifty as well. Skol!A $400B UTOPIAN DESERT CITY PLANNED: Kathleen reads an article where former Walmart president and billionaire Marc Lore has announced his plans for a $400 billion utopian city. Lore wants to capture the cleanliness of Tokyo, the diversity of New York, and the social services of Stockholm, and his vision will incorporate 5-million-people. He has appointed world-famous architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group to finalize the design and location, using scouting teams to review possible targets including Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Texas, and the Appalachian region. Stay tuned for UPDATES ☺THE CAROLINA MURDAUGH MURDERS: Kathleen's ID Channel love attracts her to the bizarre details surrounding the murder of the family of a South Carolina lawyer, Alex Murdaugh. News of the deaths of Paul Murdaugh, 22, and Maggie Murdaugh, 52, has led to national headlines, not only for the mystery surrounding their murders but for the ties to other death investigations in the Lowcountry area: Stephen Smith in 2015, Gloria Satterfield in 2018 and Mallory Beach in 2019. Kathleen reads through the timeline of events leading up to the recent arrest of Alex Murdaugh, after admitting to enlisting a hitman to end his own life in an effort to release an insurance policy for his remaining living son.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Natty Daddy Lemonade Seltzer, which she doesn't like because she enjoys a beer FAR more than seltzers ;-) She discusses the current state of her St. Louis Cardinals and Lewis Black's terrible Baltimore Orioles, and the sheer awesomeness of Tony LaRussa as a coach and GM. Kathleen then talks about her Fantasy Football league, and her repeat move to draft Tom Brady as her starting quarterback. TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termite Cheryl from Oregon for the Baby Shoe Madigan Christmas ornament and “Calm Down Karen” t-shirt, and Termite sisters Steph & Jen from Edmonton who sent a box of Canadian fun that Kathleen samples as part of her junk food tasting session. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples a few Canadian treats from Termite sisters Steph & Jen, beginning with Hawkins Cheezies, which is one of her all-time favorite snacks. She then tastes President's Choice Cheesy Garlic Bread rippled chips, which are a little too “garlicky” for her preference. She finishes her tasting with Keg Steakhouse Ranch dressing, which she LOVES and rates in her top 3 of all Ranches tasted so far.UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, reporting that Queen Stevie Nicks has recorded a duet with Elton John called “Stolen Car” as part of his “Lockdown Sessions” album. Queen Tanya has canceled the remainder of her 2021 Tour dates, stating that she needs to concentrate on rehabilitating her hip after her recent surgery. ELIZABETH HOLMES JURY SELECTION UNDERWAY: In continuing with her updates on the Elizabeth Holmes' Theranos trial, Kathleen provides an update on how the jury selection process is going leading up to the commencement of the trial. QAnon SHAMAN PLEA DEAL: Kathleen laughs while reading an update on the infamous “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley, who was originally charged with six federal crimes pertaining to the US Capitol insurrection. He plead guilty to one of the most serious charges and could face a maximum of 20 years in prison, though his lack of a criminal record means he'll likely receive much less. As part of the plea agreement, Chansley agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution for damage to the Capitol and could also face a fine of up to $250,000.BEYONCE'S BLOOD DIAMOND: Kathleen reads an article surrounding the controversy surrounding Beyoncé and Jay-Z after she made history posing alongside a rare art piece from the late, great artist Jean-Michel Basquiat as the first Black woman to wear an iconic Tiffany & Co. Yellow Diamond. After critics bashed the Beyonce for wearing a ‘blood diamond,' a source stated that “Beyonce is aware of the criticism and is disappointed and angry that she wasn't made aware of questions about its history.” In an effort to pivot the narrative, she appears to be focused on promoting the $2,064,600 that Tiffany has pledged toward internship and scholarship programs for historically Black colleges and universities.BRITNEY'S CONSERVATORSHIP ENDS: Kathleen is thrilled to read that after months of following the #FreeBritney movement, her conservatorship with her father has finally ended. Father Jamie Spears has served as conservator of his daughter's estate since it was established in 2009 and recently stated in a court filing that he intends to step down as conservator. Kathleen applauds the efforts of “the children” who have supported Britney, and encourages them to celebrate ☺ABBA'S GREATEST COMEBACK: As is the case with many music lovers, Kathleen LOVES ABBA's music and is absolutely thrilled to read an article announcing that nearly four decades after disbanding and vowing never to get back together, the Swedish superstars are making a musical comeback with a new album and a London show featuring their performances captured by digital avatars. The group, all in their seventies, described how they were photographed in leotards to create the avatars for a new show called “ABBA Voyage” which will play at a theatre being built close to the presentation venue in east London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The show will feature 22 songs, mostly the group's classic hits, and last 90 mins. Kathleen CANNOT wait to buy tickets….WENDY'S UPGRADES FRENCH FRIES: Kathleen agrees that fast-food French fries need to be upgraded, and still hasn't gotten over McDonald's move to change its iconic fry recipe back in 1992. She's excited to hear that Wendy's has announced that the chain is upgrading its French fries in mid-September 2021, keeping more skin on the potato in order to “drive more flavor.” Stay tuned for a tasting from Mama T, Termites.WALLY THE WALRUS GETS HIS OWN BOAT: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article out of Ireland where a massive Arctic walrus whom locals refer to as “Wally” was first spotted in March. Since then, he has traveled over 2,485 miles and has been spotted in France, Spain, and across the U.K. According to the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG), due to his colossal weight, Wally has been sinking one or two boats in every harbor he enters when he attempts to climb on watercraft anytime he gets tired from swimming. In an effort to offer assistance, the Irish have built Wally his own pontoon boat which will remain in a harbor in West Cork. NAZI ARTIFACTS FOUND STASHED IN GERMAN HOUSE: Kathleen reads an article detailing a cache of Nazi artifacts that have been found in the wall of a German house. Found by a schoolteacher, the trove was most likely hidden as U.S. troops took the city of Hagen in April 1945.STONEHENGE IS INDESTRUCTIBLE: Kathleen is fascinated with history and can't believe the results of a recent scientific analysis from a piece of England's Stonehenge monument. The core sample is helping experts better understand the makeup of the mysterious prehistoric structure, and how the stone's geochemical composition may have made it uniquely well-equipped to stand the test of time. The structure is made from 99.7 percent quartz crystals making the stones are practically indestructible, according to a new study published in the journal Plos One.100-YEAR-OLD NAZI ON TRIAL FOR HATE CRIMES: Kathleen believes in karma and consequence, and reiterates these sentiments when reading an article about a 100-year-old former guard at the Sachsenhausen Nazi concentration camp near Berlin. The guard will face trial this Fall, 76 years after the end of the Second World War.ITALIAN VILLAS FOR A EURO: Kathleen reads an article about Italy's ongoing clearance sale of €1 houses that have been historically centered around rural areas. However, a town in Rome's Latium region has joined the efforts with stricter parameters for those applying to purchase including timelines to complete any renovations and preference going to those who wish to reside in the area on a longer-term basis. THE RICHEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD: Kathleen is fascinated reading an article listing Forbes' richest women in the world, and by what means they attained their wealth. The group founded their wealth in everything from construction to technology, including the inventor of the Bumble dating app (which causes Kathleen to laugh when telling the story of her friend Ron White's “Bumble fumble.”) She is particularly excited to discuss the philanthropic endeavors of the women who currently holds the status of the world's wealthiest female: Françoise Bettencourt Meyers of the L'Oreal brand, who was raised as a strict Catholic and has pledged over €200M to restore Notre Dame cathedral in Paris after it was damaged in a horrible fire in 2019. Kathleen loves the city of Paris and tells listeners about her high school French exchange trip when she spent 6 weeks in the French countryside smoking cigarettes with her friend Marie Paul. THE LONGEST EMBRACE: Kathleen closes the Pubcast with a story of true love, reading an article from China where archaeologists have discovered two ancient skeletons holding each other with their arms wrapped around the other's waist and the woman pressed up against the man's shoulders. In studying the remains, historians feel that the remains likely belonged to a man and woman from the Northern Wei period – 1,500 years ago, when Buddhism was heightening. WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching the ABBA documentary “When All Is Said And Done” “The White Lotus” with Connie Britton on HBO Max, and “The Defeated” on Netflix.

TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen gives thanks to the Termites who leave notes at shows and send mail to her PO Box. She begins by thanking Termite Kathy for leaving her a gorgeous mermaid Christmas ornament at Kathleen's Borgata show in Atlantic City. Big thanks to the Termite who sent fancy dog treats, which Mustard will love when he visits, and Termite Heather for the Shanty Bar mini Crown Royal bags. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Ruffles Jalapeno Ranch chips, which she loves because they resemble sour cream n' onion chips (one of her favorite flavors.) She moves on to sample Whataburger's Spicy Jalapeño Ranch, which she loves because it has a “kick at the end,” and St. Louis's Twisted Ranch Garlic Smashed Buffalo, which she ALSO recommends adding to your pantry. UPDATE ON KATHLEEN'S QUEEN'S COURT: Kathleen provides an update on the Queens, and this week extends the court to Christine McVie (friend and bandmate of Queen Stevie Nicks) who has followed suit with other 70's rockers and recently announced that she has sold her song catalog rights to Hipgnosis Songs Fund. Kathleen is then thrilled to advise the Termites that Queen Dolly Parton has been named to Forbes' 2021 list of America's Self-Made Women, clocking in at $350 million. Dolly has also announced that she has teamed up with novelist James Patterson on her first novel called “Run Rose, Run” which will hit shelves in March 2022. EL MENCHO SENDS NEWS ANCHOR INTO HIDING: As a follow up to EP31, Kathleen gives an update out of Mexico where a prominent news anchor, Azucena Uresti, has been forced into Witness Protection after El Mencho, the current leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel has accused her of biased coverage of the cartel. BANKSY CONFIRMS AUTHENTICITY OF ART: As an art lover and fan of the street artist Banksy, Kathleen reads an update that new murals have been found in numerous coastal towns in the east of England. Although Banksy has not yet claimed responsibility for graffiti stencils and the larger “We're All In The Same Boat,” locals are certain that he will reveal their authenticity soon enough. ELIZABETH HOLMES' PSYCH EVAL: In continuing with Kathleen's obsession with Elizabeth Holmes' upcoming trial, she reads an article advising that Holmes is using the position that her ex-boyfriend Sunny Balwani was the puppeteer of the Theranos scandal, which Kathleen provides her own opinion around ☺ TIM TEBOW RELEASED BY JAGS: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an UPDATE that former NFL player and College Football analyst Tim Tebow has been released by the Jacksonville Jaguars after a failed experiment of allowing him to play Tight End in a single preseason game. Kathleen has an issue with Tebow bringing scripture unnecessarily into sports, comparing the biblical scripture that Tebow quotes on his face to hands of blackjack since Catholics can't recite any specific passages from the Bible. MURDER HORNETS RETURN: As a follow-up to EP14, Kathleen updates listeners that Murder Hornets have returned to Washington state. State entomologists confirmed the first live sighting of Asian Giant Hornets, also known as a murder hornet for its ability to decimate honeybee hives.FLYING TAXI STOCK GOES PUBLIC: Kathleen is thrilled to read an announcement that flying taxi company Joby Aviation has gone public, billing itself as the “Uber of the Air” leading into the IPO. Based in Santa Cruz CA, Joby is has developed an electrically powered, low-noise flying taxi capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL). Kathleen plans to cash in some of her Dogecoin and move those funds to JOBY stock. NEBRASKA FAMILY DOLLAR STRIKE: Kathleen laughs and applauds a group of Family Dollar store employees in Lincoln, NE as she reads a news release that the 2 remaining employees in that store walked off the job last week after leaving a farewell note on the front door of the store that read: "We all quit. Sorry for the inconvenience." Citing poor pay, management issues, and long hours, the employees walked off the job and forced a store closure that took days to reconcile. STEVE WYNN'S 11 PICASSOS OFFERED FOR AUCTION: As the Termites know, Kathleen is an avid fan of art. She's excited to read a release that MGM Resorts International has enlisted Sotheby's to come to Las Vegas to auction off a cache of Pablo Picasso paintings amassed years earlier by casino magnate Steve Wynn. The 11 Picassos to be sold have long been displayed at a Picasso-themed restaurant at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino, and Kathleen has always really appreciated Wynn's intent to offer access to these works to the general public. THE NRA'S TRAFFICKING SECRET: Kathleen is appalled sharing an article disclosing that in Fall 2013 an export company in Botswana prepared a shipment of animal parts for Wayne and Susan LaPierre, the head of the National Rifle Association and his wife. The list of trophies from their recent hunt included animal parts from a zebra, hyaena, a cape-buffalo, a cheetah, and multiple elephants. Susan confirmed the shipment and wrote back with a request that import paperwork should have no clear links to the LaPierre's or the NRA. Charges are pending, Termites so stay tuned….karma comes around.POLITE APES: Kathleen laughs reading a recent study announcing that apes purposefully use signals to begin and end social interactions -- behaviors not typically seen outside of humans until now, according to the journal iScience. Researchers analyzed more than 1,200 interactions with groups of zoo apes and found that they commonly exchange gazes or swap gestures to share their intentions about social interactions, such as waving hello. DISCOVERY OF THE TROJAN HORSE: Kathleen is thrilled to read an article advising that archaeologists in Turkey excavating the site of the historical city of Troy have unearthed a large wooden structure, and the measurements resemble those of the Trojan Horse. Kathleen then leads the Termites down a massive rabbit hole of whether the Trojan Horse existed.FANTASY FOOTBALL: Kathleen closes out the Pubcast discussing the recent Fantasy Football Draft that her league completed, taking Tom Brady as her top pick for quarterback (which both Lewis Black and Ron White tease her for doing).

TERMITE SHOUTOUTS: Kathleen is thrilled to go through mail sent from Termites to the PO Box, and thanks Termite Vikki for the airplane socks and personal pillow. Big shoutout to the Hartford Yard Goats for the super cool t-shirt, the Biloxi Shuckers for the koozies and bottle opener (appropriate for Mama Termite ☺), and she wishes the very best of luck to the Tulsa Drillers this weekend as they transition into the Tulsa Noodlers for their series against the Wichita Wind Surge, thanking Justin and Rhonda for the Noodler's tee and hat.

CONSEQUENCE CULTURE AND THE NXIVM CULT: As a follow-up to EP5, Kathleen reads an update that Lauren Salzman, a former high-ranking NXIVM member who testified against leader Keith Raniere, will not go to prison but only probation and community service. Kathleen states that she just doesn't know what to do with “cult people,” and that the past year in COVID isolation should absolutely not count towards the fulfillment of Salzman's sentence. NEW BANKSY STREET ART DISCOVERED: As an art lover and fan of the street artist Banksy, Kathleen reads an update that new murals have been found in numerous coastal towns in the east of England.

THE DROPOUT HOLMES: Kathleen laughs as Paddles screams over another Elizabeth Holmes update. ABC News Podcast “The Dropout” is returning to follow the trial of disgraced Elizabeth Holmes. The series originally gained popularity as it outlined the massive fraud of her startup company Theranos. JERRY FALWELL JR DENIED APPEAL: Kathleen's amusement isn't tempered as she reads an update regarding Jerry Fallwell Jr's latest appeal to have the charges presented by Liberty University dismissed. The lawsuit demanding at least $10 million alleges that Jerry Falwell Jr. breached fiduciary duties to the school and entered into a business conspiracy against it.PLAGUED TAHOE CHIPMUNKS: Kathleen reads an advisory from Lake Tahoe stating that many chipmunks in Lake Tahoe have tested positive for bubonic Plague. At the beginning of August 2021, the US Forest Service announced it was closing several popular sites after the disease appeared to multiply in the chipmunk population. According to the agency, plague can be spread by “squirrels, chipmunks, and other wild rodents”, specifically by fleas that come in contact with infected animals and go on to bite humans.THAI MONKEY GANGS: Kathleen reads an article from Thailand advising that the notorious street monkey gangs in Lopburi have found themselves yet again lacking food from the tourists who feed the animals in front of a Buddhist temple. Facing yet another food shortage, hundreds of monkeys have started battling in the streets as rival gangs.THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE: Kathleen loves to explore museums while on the road, and as a follow up to EP52, she's amazed that she's never heard of The Museum of The Bible, which is supported and tied to the primary shareholders of Hobby Lobby: the Green family. WU-TANG CLAN PHARMA BRO: As the Termites are aware, Kathleen is a massive fan of the Wu-Tang Clan, and as a follow up to EP29 she reads an article announcing that the US government has sold imprisoned drug company executive Martin Shkreli's one-of-a-kind album by Wu-Tang Clan to pay off the $7.36 million he was ordered to forfeit after being convicted of fraud.HUSHPUPPI FRAUD: Kathleen laughs reading an article outlining the arrest of Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, known as "Hushpuppi” to followers. Ramos has admitted his involvement in a conspiracy to defraud a Qatari businessman of more than $1m, as well as money laundering and cyber schemes, and has pleaded guilty to all charges. Kathleen is glad that justice has been served, but admits to also loving the moniker “Hushpuppi” (with an “i.”) THE OTHER BURNING MAN: In continuing with the strangeness of pandemic times, Kathleen reads an article announcing that the 2021 Burning Man Festival has been canceled again. However, as they did for the 2020 event, organizers are announcing a "Virtual Burning Man," which will begin on August 21. There will be no charge to participate online, although donations are encouraged to help organizers make up for the festival's two years of lost revenue.A LADY MAFIOSA DISCOVERED: Kathleen is thrilled to discover that a top Mafia boss in Italy is actually a woman, and can't believe the details of her recent arrest in Rome.

Investigators claim Licciardi, from Naples, ran extortion rackets as head of the Licciardi Camorra crime syndicate clan.A RECORD SAPPHIRE CLUSTER: Kathleen closes off the Pubcast reading an article about workmen who discovered a $100M sapphire cluster while digging a well. The 2.5 million-carat cluster has been named the “Serendipity Sapphire”, and a German gemstone trader has announced that it has taken over a year to wash and certify it. Born in September, the sapphire is Kathleen's birthstone, and she tells the story of how she found out she was actually born on a Thursday (instead of a Tuesday, as her Dad had always told her) at a gas station in Hawaii.WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” on Hulu, and “The Spanish Princess” on Starz.
