State in the United States
June is a month of many celebrations and we're taking the opportunity to join in with one of them, though not the one Toby had expected. Brother Chris Emmons from Kanawha Lodge #25 in Charleston, West Virginia joins us to celebrate LGBTQ Pride and share his experiences as an out gay Odd Fellow. The conversation wanders around quite a bit and covers a wide range of topics, including the many great and affirming experiences both Chris and Ainslie have had in Odd Fellowship and some of the similarities between joining the Odd Fellows and coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community. The Shoutout goes to another brand-new lodge, this time it's Gem City Lodge #357 in Quincy, Illinois. In the Odd Podge, Ainslie talks about the Tuscola Odd Market and appendant festivities, including a drag show! Chris shares a little about his trip to Tuscola for the Odd Market (and his new tattoo), and Toby *finally* gets to raise awareness of the accordion.
Birth Mother Matters in Adoption Season 3, Ep209: Roe v. Wade Overturned The U.S. Supreme Court on 6/24/2022 overturned its landmark decision Roe v. Wade that had previously secured the federal right to obtain an abortion. The Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and leaves the practice of abortion in the states' hands. "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” read the majority opinion. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6/24/2022, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, that the Constitution does not guarantee a right to abortion. Under Roe and the court's 1992 ruling in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, states had not been allowed to enact bans on most abortions until after a pregnancy had reached the threshold of fetal viability, when it is believed that an unborn child could survive outside the womb. The states that are predicted to impose an abortion ban are Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming. Three other states — Georgia, Ohio and South Carolina — are likely to ban abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy. Two other states — Arizona and Florida — have passed 15-week bans this year. Will this impact adoption? What will happen next? Listen, Learn, Love.

Extreme heat events such as India and Pakistan recently endured are among the deadliest impacts of climate change, and pregnant women and fetuses are among the most vulnerable to heat stress. Extreme heat is linked to complications of pregnancy including eclampsia, preterm birth and stillbirth. Also, to help revitalize coal country as the mines close, the United Mine Workers of America is teaming up with an electric vehicle battery company on a new factory in West Virginia. And UN climate negotiators recently gathered in Bonn, Germany to prepare for the next climate summit this fall in Egypt, but these talks are not moving as fast as climate disruption itself. -- Support for Living on Earth comes from the I Am Bio podcast, with powerful stories of biotech breakthroughs, the people they help, and the global problems they solve.

Live from the No Panic Zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice—God Bless America—God Bless You and let's do this! This is the Steve Gruber show— And I'm here to flush out the lying politicians—the tech giants—and the babbling herd of sheep— Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— Sarah Palin looks like she is on auto-pilot now to become Alaska's member of Congress—the former Governor and VP candidate—is closer now that the only Democrat dropped out— TWO— Why is Joe Biden talking about a second pandemic being inevitable? And at the same time the CEO of Michigan based Pfizer says you will need at least one Covid shot every year to stay healthy— THREE— The focus of the nation remains on the state of the economy—and the flashing red lights indicating a recession and a bad one are on the way—and it looks like there is just no way around it— Democrats continue to talk about spending more money—crazy right? But Joe Biden and other socialists seem to think they can spend their way out of the crisis they have created—the problem is—nearly every person that understands the economy understands—that pumping trillions of dollars into the country—is what triggered the inflation explosion in the first place— In fact Democrats should be calling Senator Joe Manchin and thanking him for stopping the whole Build Back Better fiasco—they should thank him for standing in the gap and saying no to another several trillion dollars in reckless spending—because that would have made the situation here that much worse— BUT instead of doing that—Joe Biden and the other Horsemen of the American Financial Apocalypse just keep riding full steam into the storm—BUT once again it appears it will be Joe Manchin that stands up and says—he will not allow his state of West Virginia to be destroyed by more reckless socialist behavior—

Waddup to all my Goonies from The Goon Squad…It's your Captain 1 Eyed Willie and I am here to bring you all Episode 8: Corporate Culture Feat. Desmond “The Plug” Thompson. Inside this episode Desmond pulled up to The WORLDs iLLEST PODCAST to chop it up about what he does on the corporate side of the business/culture. Desmond and I kick off the episode taking it back to his early days growing up in military household. Originally from a small town in North Carolina Desmond talks about his parent meeting at college back in the day. His dad on a basketball scholarship messed up early on in college so he left and joined the military, but always kept in touch with his mother who finished college and they ended up married. As they traveled the world, Desmond's and family eventually ended up at Fort Knox, KY. While where Desmond would play sports and in the band but he grew a love for music, (on a few mixtapes) fashion, writing, and of course shoes. After graduating high school Desmond had plans on attending Tennessee State University (HBCU) and play in their band but due to not making the SAT deadline Desmond would land at Western Kentucky University. It would be here where Desmond joined Alpha Phi Alpha, won the step show, became a member of Black Student Alliance and Amazing Tones on Joy. He would also release a dope track that exposed his pen game and skills as an emcee. After graduating Desmond would land a job back home working at Finish Line helping customers get fresh for all occasions. This is where he became “The Plug” helping people get in the dopest shoes that came out. Desmond worked his way up, became a store manager, and later moved to West Virginia to help revive a store in the mall. After being successful at that Desmond would later work in the corporate office as a buyer, where he became in charge of placing all the dope accessories in the store. After being with Finish Line for many years Desmond took a new job for Lids where he is connecting the dots and making things happen for fashion we see within the culture today. Tap in, press play, and listen as Desmond “The Plug” Thompson tells us his journey on the corporate side of the business so you can get a clearer vision through this conversation. Support the show

Let's get this straight immediately: If you want to make friends with the good people of the mountains, you'd better pronounce the name of their home the way they do. When you say Appalachia, make it sound like 'throw an apple atcha'. This fabled region of the US includes parts of 12 states and the entirety of West Virginia. It encompasses forested peaks and deep hollers (the local name for valleys) along the Appalachian Mountains that stretch from Canada to Alabama. Although the population is predominantly of white Scots-Irish or German descent, about 10% of the population is African-American. But circa the 1700s, it was a melting pot that blended white, Black, and Native Americans. That means there's damn good food, foot-stomping music, and a lively storytelling tradition, along with long-held wisdom about the importance of kin, living in harmony with nature, and being self-reliant. In this episode, we discuss Appalachian folklore, celebrate the magic of Dolly Parton, listen to eerie country ballads, and daydream about banana pudding. Then we recommend five immersive books that took us to Appalachia on the page. The Book Woman of Troublesome by Kim Michele Richardson F*ckface: And Other Stories by Leah Hampton Victuals: An Appalachian Journey with Recipes by Ronni Lundy The Animators by Kayla Rae Whitaker She Walks These Hills by Sharyn McCrumb For more on the books we recommend, plus the other cool stuff we talk about, visit show notes at http://strongsenseofplace.com/podcasts/2022-06-06-tasmania Do you enjoy our show?

In this episode the Origins of Father's Day a little history and some special guests that are near and dear to my heart sharing some memories hopefully to incite some of your own. I'm here with Michael Herst I'm here with my lovely wife and Co host Diane Welcome to One More Thing Before You Go Over the Teacup Sunday “The campaign to celebrate the nation's fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm– as mother's day perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven't the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.” But here we are June 17, 2022 celebrating another Father's Day to everyone of you fathers out there which I'm told there are about 70 million of us here in the United states alone. So stay tuned we're going to talk a little bit about the history of Father's Day and here for some very special people in my life as well to share this day with you “On July 5, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation's first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December's explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company Monongah mine, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday. The next year, a Spokane, Washington, woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother's Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation's first statewide Father's Day on June 19, 1910. It was not until 1972—58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day official—that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. Father's Day 2022 will occur on Sunday, June 19.” (The History Channel June 16 2022 https://www.history.com/news/hitler-death-cause-teeth-analysis) More at https://beforyougopodcast.com This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: Podcorn - https://podcorn.com/privacy

On this week's episode, we're journeying far and wide through Appalachia and beyond. Author Mesha Maren takes us from the hills of West Virginia to the Texas/Mexico border — the land of the Luchador. We'll also hear about what West Virginians are doing to help Ukrainian refugees. And, we'll learn about what doctors are saying about medical cannabis in the Mountain State — where it's now available to more than 8,000 patients.
In 2018, journalist Linda Villarosa wrote an article in The New York Times Magazine that kicked off a national conversation about health disparities. It showed that Black mothers and their babies in the U.S. were dying at more than double the rate of their white peers, and it pulled back the curtain on how those statistics related to racism. For Villarosa, it had been a long road linking health disparities to racism. In the beginning of her career, she was a big believer in self-help, thinking that better information and more education could close the health gap. But the more she reported on these issues, the more she came to understand how racism, discrimination, and bias affect health experiences and outcomes for Black Americans. On this episode, we talk with Villarosa about her new book, “Under the Skin: The Hidden Toll of Racism on American Lives and on the Health of Our Nation.” We also meet a Black midwife in West Virginia and find out how she's making a difference for her patients, and a med student who's using TikTok to spread life-saving information. Also heard on this week's episode: Fathers' Day is almost here, and a new book from author Michael Hannon provides resources and guidance for Black fathers. Hannon is an associate professor of counseling at Montclair State University in New Jersey. We hear an excerpt of his conversation with health equity fellow Marcus Biddle.
We're continuing the deep dive into Satanic Panic this week, but first! More ghosts!! The Blennerhassett Hotel in Parkersburg, West Virginia is home to AT LEAST 13 different ghosts. Built back in 1889, this hotel is still standing and operating to this day. Listen as Sarah tells the tales of 10 of the resident ghosts. With a 4.5 star rating of TripAdvisor...would you stay the night in this haunted hotel?? Ding-Ding. Stephanie wraps up with another installment of Satanic Panic. We discussed how it started, now lets talk about the effects and ultimately the consequences. Biggest consequence of all being that people got all up in arms about Child Satanic Abuse - but all that did was take focus and resources away from actual cases of abuse. Not to mention the poor people wrongly convicted on charges. And get ready, because next week is the 3rd installment! That's right, Stephanie has more to tell. So don't miss out!
My guest today is Dr. Ryan Haupt. Ryan is a scientist and podcaster on the show Science...Sort of, and a frequent guest host on the comic book podcast iFanboy. iFanboy was one of the very first podcasts I ever listened to and after a couple of random interactions on Twitter - Ryan and I were able to connect to talk back at the beginning of February. This conversation runs the gamut. We talk about Ryan's experience growing up in the church in West Virginia, about discovering science in college, and the particular grief that can come from a philosophical or faith shift. We also talk about comics! One note: We had several production difficulties during this recording session because an errant setting on my computer kept forcing it to shutdown. Thankfully, Ryan had a backup of both of our tracks, and we were able to continue. My additional thanks to Liz Nordenholt of Podcat Audio for her work in editing this episode in particular. It's a longer one! Follow Ryan on Twitter, and listen to him on Science...Sort Of and iFanboy! Exvangelical is a production of The Post-Evangelical Post. There's several ways you can support my work.

The three adult, male suspects in the murder of 17-year-old student Ethan Liming, which took place outside of Lebron James' school, are now claiming self-defense despite the lack of immanence. The suspects also stole the victim's car while Liming's friends were trying to get him to the hospital. Legacy media networks remain silent as pro-abortion militants strike pregnancy centers across the U.S.. Instead of providing coverage to these terror attacks linked to terrorist organization Jane's Revenge, mainstream media is covering the January 6th Committee Hearings. Jack Posobiec dives into the newly leaked internal messages from a Twitter employee Slack channel, where employees targeted and threatened to deplatform Libs of TikTok and discuss the potential consequences of such actions. West Virginia threatens to bar the nation's six biggest financial firms, including Black Rock and Wells Fargo, unless they can prove they aren't boycotting fossil fuels.Here's your Daily dose of Human Events with @JackPosobiec Save up to 65% on MyPillow products by going to MyPillow.com/POSO and use code POSO To get $500 of free silver on a qualifying purchase go to https://allegiancegold.com/POSO/ with code POSO

Sam and Emma host Mark Joseph Stern, staff writer at Slate, to preview the incoming SCOTUS opinions of the week. First, Sam and Emma preview primary Tuesday, the ever-mounting success of Starbucks unions, and remind us that much like Liz Cheney, Bill Barr is NOT our friend. Then, they're joined by Mark as they dive into this “storm before the even bigger storm” moment in the Supreme Court, first covering why the Supreme Court's summer decision dumps all come down to the end of June so they can get out on vacation, and speculating on the order of the drops when there are so many massive decisions currently pending. Next, they get into the actual issues at hand, looking to the many layers of Dobbs v Jackson, including the continued obscurity around the leak and leaker's identity, what small “cleanups” we'll see in comparison to Alito's leaked draft, and the futures of Griswald and Sodomy laws. They also dive into Andrus v Texas, looking at how the Supreme Court allowed lower-level courts to overturn the Sixth Amendment guarantee to effective assistance of counsel, practically removing habeas review and other judicial practices while still keeping their institutional image intact, and explore this deferral of the Court as an affirmation to the lower courts' that they will allow the overturning of their own precedent if it aligns with their conservative ideology. Sam then gets right into the administrative state as he, Emma, and Mark Joseph Stern look to West Virginia v EPA, discussing the role of Brett Kavanaugh's baby, the major questions doctrine, in bolstering the Court's ability to undermine the delegatory capacities of Congress and the executive branch by requiring explicit and specific congressional guidelines. After a conversation on the “activist” nature of this conservative court, they wrap up the interview by discussing the future of concealed carry with New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, and the use of coercive religious practices in public schools with Kennedy v. Bremerton. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover the updates on yesterday's 1/6 hearing, exploring the accusation of Trump's campaign lawyer as “an agent of the deep state” for rejecting the validity of the Dominion fraud, McClain from Iowa, Bradley's Dad from LA, AND Peter from St. Paul all dive deep into handling conversations with conservative parents and the importance of finding commonalities, as the right becomes more and more the Republican Party of (some of our) fathers. Brock from Wichita talks gun control, and Fox News displays their militant support for trans people by… telling the story of a conservative family's acceptance of their son, which of course makes Matt Walsh angry when there's an excellent documentary talking about women's bodies right there!
