School ends and Extreme Biology, Ep150 of A Cup of Coffee with Thomson!

This kid is sad that school ended and is reading about Extreme Biology!  I think that's pretty unusual, don't you?  So, do you know who Craig Venter is?  Do you know what extreme biology is?  Well in the words of Thomson's grandmother, "LOOK IT UP!"  Thomson did, and he can tell you something about it!  BTW, we would love to have someone on the show to talk about extreme biology, if you are interested please send a message to jody@whaddyagonnadoaboutit.com.

Classic literature and scientific method, EP149 of A Cup of Coffee with Thomson

Thomson has an interesting idea of the scientific method!  Maybe its better, who am I to squelch the innovation of an almost-5yo!  Thomson's reading as progressed enough that he is reading chapter books with very few pictures, so that means its time to start reading the classics of literature!  What's your favorite classic book?

cinema3way ep2.2

A lesser known John Ford film that garnered him his 1st Academy Award, this film is still relevant today and is a far cry from the westerns that Ford is known for.  Yet Ford's style and values are still very recognizable.  Loyalty is a common theme in Ford films, and we hope you will show your loyalty to WGDA radio, listen to more podcasts and share with your friends and friends!  We're also available on iTunes, and we love to get your comments on our shows!

Lots can be said about Academy Award winner "The Quiet Man", a film very close to John Ford's heart that he had to fight to get made.  Want to learn more? Whaddya waiting for- listen now!  Birsen gives us the romantic view, John regales us with his Irish accent- what a great broadcasting match!
