Episode 36- April 4, 2015

The Moon travels the Ecliptic just like the sun, only 12 times as fast.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth explains this mimicry and how to estimate the moon's celestial path.  She also tells a mud season survival story, and reads "Bets' Baby"a tale about a waitress returning to work.  

"...I took my six-week maternity leave, though I was no longer a mother.  Maybe, technically, I was never a mother, since Joseph had died in utero..."
