November 06, 2018 : Honoring the Past

CK visits the Denver Botanic Gardens, where a special exhibit honors the veterans of World War I, which ended 100 years ago this Sunday. We also take a look at the new Disney Nutcracker movie, the history of Election Day, a funny but fun toy and an exciting novel. We'll also say goodbye to the Kepler Space Telescope and to Nellie Bly.

October 30, 2018 : Thrills! Spills! Laughs!

CK goes to a very silly movie this week, but then turns almost kind of serious for one of Nathan Hale's humorous looks at real history. Then we review a toy you almost certainly don't want, and examine laws against spanking and how they might help lower violence later. And poor Nellie Bly hits a rough patch in her life, while Big Nate simply gets embarrassed again as usual.

October 23, 2018 : Authors, books and dog talk

This week we meet a pair of popular authors who joined up to write a novel together, and we also review several other books. We'll also look into the recent accident in a space launch, remember the terrible flu pandemic of a century ago and an experiment on how dogs think about language. Plus we review a physics-based marble game and travel to cover a strike with Nellie Bly.
