Co-hosts Wendy Sheridan, Mary McGinley, and Robin Renée start the show off with 3 Random Facts and the News: The facts this time involve this day in birthdays (Toni Braxton and Vladimir Putin among them), cats’ toes, and a tip for autumn – the benefits of planting garlic. In the news is Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis, the skepticism and conspiracy theories that cropped up immediately, and the policing of how we should feel about it. Speaking of conspiracy theories, QAnon is increasing in alternative health and spiritual communities. Also in the news, Proud Boys problems, the Nobel Prize for the discovery of hep C, and a new project by artist Anji Marth, Paintings From Quarantine. In the Ikigai segment, Wendy leads a discussion on what she’s learned about the Japanese concept of ikigai, discovering one’s life purpose, creating community connections, doing meaningful work, and living well overall.
