Animals, Episode #2 of 4. Toads, dogs, cats, ferrets, rats, and occasionally even butterflies were depicted in the 16th and 17th centuries as “witch's familiars” throughout Europe. A servant of the witches, whose purpose was to help them stir up trouble and cause harm in their enemies, familiars were particularly important in English witch lore. Some were conjured by witches, some sent by the Devil to tempt a woman into maleficence, some were supposed to be the Devil himself in the form of a common black dog. Whatever their origin and intent, familiars were not just background characters in English witch trials. They were presented as evidence and used to sentence hundreds, probably thousands, of people to death for witchcraft - in England. Not so in France or Denmark or Italy. It was only in England that the familiar's significance was codified in law. Why, you ask? Great question. Let's find out.

This week, Alex discusses an animal that spends part of its life in the water, and part on land. They're pretty common to find, although it might be hard to see them because they do a great job of camouflaging themselves. You've probably heard their calls at night, but may have not known it was them. So, it's time to take a closer listen, as we head into your backyard to talk about toads.

Tonight I am joined by Naturalist Robert Villa. In recent decades a phenomenon has developed around the Sonoran Desert Toad (AKA the Colorado River Toad) and the recreational use of its toxins for psychedelic purposes. There is however, a great deal of misinformation out there regarding the topic. So to set the record straight I am joined by Robert Villa. Robert dispels many of the common myths associated with the species and we discuss how exploitation for its unique toxins is affecting its survival. We also discuss how the psychedelic phenomenon started (Hint- it's not how many of you think it started).Robert is a naturalist and the president of the Tuscan Herp Society. He also has an intimate understanding of the Sonoran Desert Toad and has been a source of factual information for many publications including the New York Times.For more information visit: https://tucsonherpsociety.org/If you'd like to support the show, consider becoming a Patron and visit: https://www.patreon.com/AmphibicastFor listener discounts on In Situ Ecosystem vivariums click: https://insituecosystems.com/?ref=amphibicastFor Amphibicast Gear visit: https://the-amphibicast-store.creator-spring.com/

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events 1699 Birth of John Bartram, American botanist, and explorer. John founded the first botanical garden in America, and Linnaeus called him the "greatest natural botanist in the world." Like many botanists of his time, John was born to a farming Quaker family in Pennsylvania. He never forgot his rural roots, and he always thought of himself as a farmer first. When asked to describe how he ended up in botany, he wrote, One day, I was very busy [plowing]… and being weary I ran under a tree to repose myself. I cast my eyes on a daisy; I plucked it mechanically and viewed it with more curiosity than common country farmers are wont to do, and observed ... many distinct parts, some perpendicular, some horizontal. ...I thought about it continually, at supper, in bed, and wherever I went.... On the fourth day I hired a man to plow for me and went to Philadelphia. [I bought] a Latin grammar [and] ...applied to a neighboring schoolmaster, who in three months taught me Latin enough to understand Linnaeus... Then I began to botanize all over my farm. 1907 On this day, a school garden for boys only was started at a school in Rhode Island. A summary report was published with the State Board of Education. Here's what the report said, On March 26th, all the boys wrote for catalogs, some sending several letters or cards. It proved a valuable letter lesson in letter-writing and geography as they looked at the places they had sent the letters and inquired about distances, railroads, and mail trains. More than fifty attractive catalogs were received. Tomatoes, lettuce, and radishes were planted in boxes ready for early transplanting. The seeds were obtained through a member of Congress, and despite all the rumors regarding the poor quality of government seed, [they] proved excellent. Two boys found an old sink in a dump. This was sunk in the middle of the West yard, partly filled with cement and now used as a birdbath. Each boy chose several vegetables from a list of corn, squash, onions, carrots, beans, beets, lettuce, radishes, pumpkins, potatoes, peas, and parsnips. The corn and a row of sunflowers were planted next to the fence; the other vegetables [were planted] according to height, living lettuce, and radishes in the front. Difficulties: There have been many difficulties in the way. Most of the work has been done outside of school hours, at noon when some of the boys have to hurry home or at night when they carry papers. Most discouraging of all, vegetables have been stolen and Gardens trampton almost nightly. Effect: But the effect of the garden work on the boys has been excellent. First of all it's giving them an outside interest. They have learned courtesy and generosity and showing visitors the garden and giving away their vegetables. Toads which we have raised from eggs are to be put in the garden when school closes. There has been less time for running about the streets and cigarette smoking. Since the gardens were started, there's only been one case of truancy and very little absence. Ten or fifteen minutes hard work during the school hours has often served to bring a cross, restless boy back to quiet and pleasant. Of the 23 boys, 18 have made gardens at home and most of them are doing well. A copy of one boy's notebook will give an idea of the garden from the boy's standpoint. March 25: Began to pick rocks. Got a backache. Wrote for catalogs. March 26: Laid out 23 beds - [each] 6 by 14 ft March 27: Planted radishes, lettuce, tomatoes in boxes. Miss Allen paid $0.25 for loam. May 1: Put down sink for Birds bath. May 3rd: Planted pumpkins, potatoes, beans, beets, lettuce, radishes. May 15, 16, 17: Cleaned up West yard. Got loam. Planted shrubs and trees. Planted marigolds, candytuft and poppies, Boston Ivy, cornus, weigelia, lilac, crab. It looks slick. May 20th: These seeds are up in my bed: radish, lettuce, beans. May 21: brought Bush to school. Went to Arlington for ferns. Pumpkins up. Put violets beside Birds tub. June 12th: Brought home 10 radishes. They were good ones. Saw a jay in our bath and a chipping sparrow. June 17: Mr Randall out. Hoeing. A lot of teachers came. Took home lettuce June 18: Sent radishes to Mr. Small. A man and lady came to see if we will get a prize. June 19: Everything in my garden is growing fine. It's a good thing. We have spent $11.45. 1913 Birth of James C. Rose, American landscape architect, and author. A high school dropout, James was expelled from Harvard University as a landscape architecture major because they disapproved of his design style. James fulfilled a lifelong dream despite his personal struggles with educational institutions when he created The James Rose Center for design study and landscape research. In From Creative Gardens (1958), James wrote, A garden is an experience. It is not flowers or plants of any kind. It is not flagstone, brick, grass, or pebbles. It is not a barbeque or a fiberglass screen. It is an experience. If it were possible to distill the essence of a garden, I think it would be the sense of being within something while still out of doors. That is the substance of it; for until you have that, you do not have a garden at all. 1923 Birth of Norman Thelwell, English cartoonist. He is remembered for his humorous drawings of ponies and horses. In his book, From a Plank Bridge by a Pool (1978), he wrote, When I look at the tree in the dark days of winter, its huge green-black skeleton silhouetted against the ashen sky, or hear its tracery seething in a westerly gale as I lie snug and warm in bed, I wonder who it was planted this giant for so many generations to enjoy. And in the balmy days of summer when its leaves are overlaid like the breast feathers of a great bird to form high domes of rounded foliage, I wish I could call back this gentle spirit of the past and say, “This is your tree. Look at it now, for it is gracious beyond words.” Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Cook's Herb Garden by Jeff Cox and Marie-Pierre Moine This book came out in 2010, and the subtitle is: grow harvest cook. As someone who loves to grow herbs, this is one of my favorite books on herbs because it features beautiful photography of over 120 culinary herbs. Then, Jeff and Marie-Pierre offer more than 30 delicious, practical recipes that show you what you can do with your herbs - everything from making your own salad dressings and marinades to flavored butter, pestos, herbal teas, and cordials; in addition to seasoning your favorite meals. And I love what Jeff writes. He says, I always think of culinary herbs as the champions of the kitchen garden. And he reminds us that their volatile oils serve a purpose: they were the compounds that plants used to defend themselves from insects and fungi. As for Marie, she says that, As a cook herbs are my best friends. Just a handful brightens up the concoctions that I make in my kitchen. And she also reminds us that when space is at a premium, herbs should be a priority. So whether you're going to store some ginger root in the freezer, or a roll of herb butter or even just a little cilantro ice cube. They are all well-worth their shelf space. This book is 192 pages of fantastic herbs -and the photography is top-notch. This is a DK book - and it looks like it. You can get a copy of The Cook's Herb Garden by Jeff Cox and Marie-Pierre Moine and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $4. Botanic Spark 2011 Death of Elizabeth Taylor, British-American actress. She was the highest-paid movie star in the 1960s. She won two academy awards - for BUtterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) In 1999, she was named the seventh-greatest female screen legend of Classic Hollywood cinema by the American Film Institute. Elizabeth was an early AIDS activist, and she founded the National AIDS Research Foundation. In 1990, she championed Ryan White Care Act to stop discrimination against people with H.I.V. One of her tactics was to send lavender-scented notes to senators and congressmen that simply read, "I think you should see this," along with detailed information about H.I.V. Elizabeth's Bel Air home garden was located behind the swimming pool. A private tropical paradise, the garden featured her favorite flowers - gardenias and lilies of the valley - along with birds of paradise. Tucked beneath lush palms and bamboo, a small greenhouse held her collection of orchids. In 2004, Elizabeth's mobility declined, and she stopped walking through her beloved garden. In 1987, Elizabeth was one of the first celebrities to launch a signature fragrance: White Diamonds. Her garden served as the muse for her fragrance. The White Diamonds scent is made up of Italian neroli, Egyptian tuberose, narcissus, and Turkish rose. It has generated more than $1.5 billion in sales, and Revlon reports that four bottles of the scent are sold per minute in the United States, and a bottle is sold every 15 seconds worldwide. Elizabeth died at 79 from congestive heart failure. She left instructions that her funeral service started 15 minutes late as she wanted to be late for her own funeral. Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

“Blah,” said Toad. “I feel down in the dumps.” “Why?” asked Frog. “I'm thinking about how there's never been an episode of Getting Curious about us.” Frog opened up his podcast feed. Toad peered over his shoulder. “Toad, there it is! An episode of Getting Curious with herpetologist Kelly Zamudio! All about where we live, how we interact, and why we're so important to biodiversity.” They pressed play—and now, they invite you to do the same. Kelly Zamudio is an evolutionary biologist and her research focuses on the origin and maintenance of diversification in vertebrates (especially reptiles and amphibians). Her lab integrates field research in population biology, demography, and landscape/habitat change with lab research on the genetic underpinnings of population diversification, speciation, and conservation genetics. Kelly has a particular fondness for frogs and their reproductive modes. You can follow her on Twitter at @KZ_UTAustin. Her lab website is zamudiolab.org.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 3-11-22. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of March 14, 2022. This is a revised version of an episode from March 2019. SOUNDS – ~5 sec. This week, that raspy call opens an episode about several species of small frogs that share a common group name but differ in sound and distribution. Have a listen for about 10 seconds to two species recorded simultaneously, and see if you know the name of this frog group. And here's a hint: to get the key word, gather a lot of harmonious singers, or skip over a song's verses. SOUNDS - ~10 sec. If you guessed chorus frogs, you're right! You heard the creaky call of Mountain Chorus Frogsalong with the single notes of Spring Peepers, two of seven chorus frog species in Virginia. The other five are the Little Grass Frog and four more species with “chorus frog” in their name: Brimley's, New Jersey, Southern, and Upland chorus frogs. As a group, they're noted for their choruses of calling males advertising for mates in breeding season. Those calls vary among the species in pitch, tone, and how quickly sounds are repeated. The species also differ in their distribution in Virginia: Spring Peepers occur statewide, and Upland Chorus Frogs are found in much of the state, but the other five occupy narrower ranges in the Commonwealth. The Mountain Chorus Frog, which is found from Pennsylvania to Mississippi, including southwestern Virginia, is getting special scientific attention. Since 2019, scientists Kevin Hamed, at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, and Wally Smith, at the University of Virginia's College at Wise, have led a project to learn more about the species' distribution. Collaborating with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (formerly the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries), they're inviting Virginia citizens, especially K-12 students, to look and listen for this species and to submit information on any observations. The project's Web site notes that Mountain Chorus Frog's breeding activity is mostly from February to April, but may continue into June; they'll call during the day as well as at night; and places to hear them—which is more likely than seeing them—include wet ditches, flooded fields, mountain seeps and springs, tire ruts, and furrows in plowed fields. To learn more about this project, to submit Mountain Chorus Frog observations, or to request a classroom visit by the researchers, go online to mtchorusfrog.fishwild.vt.edu, or call Kevin Hamed at (540) 231-1887. Thanks to the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources and to Lang Elliott for permission to use this week's sounds, from A Guide to the Frogs and Toads of Virginia. We close with a medley of calls from the seven chorus frogs found in Virginia, in alphabetical order. Have a listen for about 20 seconds, and see if you can recall their names, mentioned earlier in this episode. Good luck! SOUNDS - ~ 23 sec – Brimley's Chorus Frog, Little Grass Frog, Mountain Chorus Frog, New Jersey Chorus Frog, Southern Chorus Frog, Spring Peeper, Upland Chorus Frog.

Jorgrim leads Caradoc, Mikmek, and Arty downriver to scout out the route to the Stag Lord's Keep! Mikmek's fondest wish is granted by a wishing well and he is reunited with ClipClop the Pony. The party encounters a cyclops woodworker who inhabits ruins with strange wooden golems and who makes a pretty good goat curry. Mikmek stays on there and fresh-faced halfling monk Wellby Goodbarrel takes his place in the party. After some razorvine along the river, the party is attacked in the night by a dreadful chimera! Downriver, they discover a hunting lodge infested with giant skunks with a dreadful painting inside, and are attacked by ice toads who try to pull them from their boats. The Stag Lord's Keep is sighted from afar and the group retreats upriver to plan their next move.

Hello to you listening in Grants Pass, Oregon!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with your host, Diane Wyzga.Maybe it's true and maybe it isn't but once there was a young girl who had a wicked stepmother and her equally wicked daughter. One day the young girl went to the well to fetch water and while there an old crone asked for a drink from the bucket which she was kindly given. As a reward for her kindness the crone gives a magical gift: each time the girl speaks pearls, jewels and roses will fall from her lips.Seeing this magic the stepmother sends her daughter back to the well to get a reward. There she finds a beautiful princess who asks for water; when she is denied a drink she curses the stepdaughter from whose lips scaly toads, lizards and snakes will fall when she speaks. [original fairy tale version Diamonds and Toads] [revised version Toads and Diamonds]Story Prompt: I can't help but wonder: What if we could see our words when we spoke? How might we change or stay the same? Write that story! Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, including Android, Amazon Music and Audible and join us next time!

Bumble bee toads (Melanophryniscus) are a highly sought after species among amphibian enthusiasts. Yet, they are notorious for being only sporadically available. Thankfully tonight's guest has figured out a way to breed them both successfully and consistently. It's my pleasure to be joined tonight by Laura Abrtaham of ARTphibians LLC, and we discuss how she breeds her toads, how to care for them in captivity, and the importance of proper diet and supplementation.

TRIGGER WARNING: Dave is borderline unhinged this morning. If you are one of “those people” who pretend to be “offended” by adult language and tautology you'll probably want to skip this episode. If you would like to help him calm down, buy him a cup of coffee on ko-fi… – Producer Henri Some days I wonder – seriously wonder – why I bother to even get up and look at the news. Look, I get it… I'm closing in on sixty years old and I regularly have to look up shit on the Urban Dictionary because I have zero clue what something means. I don't watch Tik Tok because 95% of them make no sense to me. At. All. I regularly wear my favorite Rolling Stones T-shirt, and basically every joint in my body makes a loud creaking and popping noise every time that I move. I get that for 99.99999999999999999999999% of the world population I am completely irrelevant. Most people don't give a flying fornication what I think about anything. and I'm fine with that. But for the life of me, I do not get the whole “attention whore” ideology that infects our society today. It's as if Andy Warhol was off by a factor of several hours. I can't imagine what he would have said if Social Media had been around. Anyway, in the middle of the ramp up to World War III, the Corona virus “pandemic,” the Norks throwing missiles around, West Taiwan threatening Taiwan, the impending end of the NFL season, and the stupid frog in our front yard that won't shut up at night, I learned today that “celebrities” are now “openly talking about” how they are relieving the stress of being fabulously wealthy, popular and socially relevant. I swear to the Deity, I was absolutely certain that at least one of them was already dead…
