Today my guest is Ed Linz, writer, retired military officer, and author of several books. Ed discusses his 4th book, “They Never Threw Anything Away: Memories of the Great Depression by Americans Who Lived It.” The book is from the memories of 22 Americans who lived through The Great Depression in their own words. These people tell of their experiences gained while living during the social and economic chaos of that era. Tune in to hear about this wonderful new book and the stories within.
They Never Threw Anything Away is his fourth book. His earlier non-fiction works include Life Row, Team Teaching Science, and a novel, Hurtling to the Edge. His interests include kayaking and hiking (he recently “made it” to 15,000 feet on Mount Kilimanjaro). He currently lives in Virginia and Maine. Ed encourages you to contact him via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Facebook, or on Twitter @edlinz65. His columns and book information can be found at www.edlinz.com.
Our next guest is Dr. Katherine Roe Chief, Science Advancement and Outreach Division, PETA Laboratory Investigations Department will discuss the importance of NIH leadership and how we can save both humans and animals by modernizing research. PETA is urging President Biden to appoint a new NIH leader with the knowledge and vision to implement the strategy contained in PETA’s Research Modernization Deal—a science roadmap to modernizing research—and redirect funds from failed animal experiments into studies using organs-on-a chip, high speed computer analysis, 3-dimensional tissue models, and other high-tech methods. Listeners can visit PETA.org to learn more.
Katerina Davidovich, PETA Spokesperson will offers tips for compassionate dining, shopping, and animal-companion care. PETA is ready to help everyone ring in a compassionate Near Year for animals! The group reminding people to include animals in their New Year’s resolutions by leaving meat, eggs, and dairy off their plates, cutting animal skins out of their wardrobes, buying cosmetics that weren’t tested on animals, and spending lots of quality time with their dogs and cats.
