My guest today is Dr. Ernesto Lasso de la Vega. He’s a local biologist who was born in Panama, but is now a US citizen. He’s worked at the Lee County Hyacinth Control District for more than 25 years, where he works to minimize aquatic weeds in public waters, and educate the public to that effect as well.

Did you ever notice that being on an airplane makes things like tomato juice and Pringles taste better than when you’re on the ground? While the hectic experience of air travel may have you reaching for the nearest sauvignon blanc the minute you find your seat, you might want to think twice about ordering your favorite wine on a flight. Your perception of that wine will change as you reach cruising altitude, and Gina and Julie are here to talk about why. 

My guest today is a name you might recognize if this is not your first time ‘round with us - Dave Dave Dave, otherwise known as Dave Cowan, is the co-creator of our totally awesome theme song. "Triple D" was born in Chicago, where he grew up in the burbs and started playing side drum for the Chicago Highlanders Bagpipe Band when he was 13. He ran away from home when he was 17 and formed a band called Clear Eyes. He then put together the Wayfarin’ Strangers, which was a 5 piece acoustic college band in Wisconsin. He then moved onto solo singer-songwriting about 25 years ago...the dude is a human jukebox...and still plays to this day. He’s also made a bunch of Youtube music videos over the years if you wanna check them out.
