Ahead of tomorrow's episode with Nicolai Lipscomb, we wanted to highlight one of our favorite podcasts in Home Cooking with Samin Nosrat (author of "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat") and Hrishikesh Hirway (Song Exploder) – a series focused on cooking at home. The episode with Rachel Khong gets into all sorts of topics, including how to use a plethora of jalapeños, quality olive oils, and how to cook rice without a rice cooker.

covid-19, mask, novel coronavirus
On Fridays, we like to signal boost something from our week’s guest. And when we asked Selena Rosanbalm about what she’d like to share, she wanted to advise our listeners to wear a mask. This is especially salient as yesterday more than 4,100 deaths and more than 280,000 new coronavirus cases were reported, both records.
Please be safe everyone.

alison gopnik, krista tippett, on being, other podcast
Happy Monday, tomorrow we're airing a conversation with Selena Rosanbalm about what it's like to be working as an independent musician having released an album in 2020. But today, we're listening to a conversation that Krista Tippett had with Alison Gopnik when her book, "The Gardener and the Carpenter", came out Jan last year.
You can listen to the interview here: https://onbeing.org/programs/alison-gopnik-the-evolutionary-power-of-children-and-teenagers/. We would highly recommend the unedited version, runs a bit longer but we find these editions to be more staisfying.

Welcome to Friday, it's been one heckuva week and so we'd like to share one of our favorite podcasts in The Metropolitan Opera and WQXR’s Aria Code hosted by Rhiannon Giddens. Specifically, the episode about Gioachino Rossini’s Cinderella story is pretty incredible. Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato talks about how she loves the sincerity and strength of this role and believes in its absolute celebration of human goodness.

2020 in charts, covid-19, dr. peter chin-hong, novel coronavirus, vox.com
Today, we're highlighting one of the 20 charts that vox.com published today in their 2020 wrap-up. This and two others have to do with COVID-19 and the novel coronavirus – though one could argue they all have to do with the virus or the pandemic in some way.
Above is the chart that shows new confirmed coronavirus cases each day this year as part of a 7-day moving average. See the whole write-up here: https://www.vox.com/recode/21727016/2020-in-charts-covid-vaccine-pandemic-election.

amy kim waschke, be an arts hero, oregon shakespeare festival
Two things from Amy Kim Waschke, our guest this week.
Among many others, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival community is hurting right now in Ashland, Oregon because of the fires along the west coast and the shutdown associated with the pandemic among other challenges. If you are able, to support the people of OSF by donating at https://www.osfashland.org/dream.
Be an Arts Hero
And with the larger arts' community — where much of their work has ground to a halt — keeping in mind that the Arts makes up 4.5% of total GDP and creates over $877 billion dollars annually in value-added to the United States economy and employs 5.1 million people. Especially as our lawmakers have a due date of 11 Dec for spending bills before adjourning for the holiday. Be an #artshero today! https://beanartshero.com
