Another week of shredded headlines by Michael! This week's topics cover:

Crowd Funding with Not Much Starter

Michael puts the ask out for ideas that need crowd funding. Ideas come in like: solar ovens, treehouses for the elderly, community spay & clinics, senior exercise, prayer proxy (aka Michael in Tel Aviv's retirment fund), milk your own cows, Stella Wear a subscription cat & dog bandanas, and off the grid power via earth ships and then a picnic chiller (a reverse crock pot)!

Quiz A - March 8, 2014

Michael is barraged with pointed personal questions about what he does the rest of the week from the audience and then chats about what a systems admin does.
Amy takes a break from teaching 4th grade and pairs up with Vinny who is standing in front of the auto parts store to thaw out and play the quiz!

All The News That Is & Thanks for the Memos! - March 8, 2014

Before we get to memos Michael in the audience: talks with Harold about gear manufacturing; discusses mentors; curling and being confused with Michael Phelps!

Actual Listeners like you send in their experiences of life caught in funny letter or memo from covering: replacement toilet seats near Heathrow in London, a missing plant from the third floor, and more!

Town of the Week - Yuba City, CA

Sara captures the history and story of Yuba City, CA - home to the largest dried fruit processing plant in the world and the world's smallest mountain range! Then Michael looks to Lyle to connect with someone in town, and finds Bob at the local community theatre!

Quiz B - March 8, 2014

At Jeff's prompting the audience sprints out the door and then Michael digs deep into xenon with John fom West Bend East High.
Then a debate on whether creosote is flammable vs. combustible arises. 

Round two of the quiz this week brings Steve retires from bingo calling in the U.P. to join Matt from Apleton together to have an adventure!
