Self Help Radio 101221: Eggs


The picture next to this paragraph is a painted easter egg collection owned by a neighbor of Self Help Radio's host Gary. They were painted on real eggs, perhaps decades ago, when the neighbor's kids were young.  Being store-bought, the eggs were unfertilized, & over time whatever was inside somehow dissipated.  They were light & quite hollow.  But so weirdly beautiful.

None of which can really be said about this week's Self Help Radio, a show about eggs.  There are cartons & cartons of egg songs, plus interviews: a librarian stops by the talk about egg books; we talk to the show's nutritionist about eggs; a fellow from the Egg Theater Company chats about his unusual cast; the author of 101 Games With Eggs discusses his book; & the show's resident cinephile stops by to talk about movies featuring eggs.

It's hard to believe so much can happen during a radio show but remember, it's three hours.  There were lots of egg songs (as you can see below) to fill up the time.

Don't be hard-boiled - scramble to listen!
