Special Holiday Podcast (12-20-09):
It's a Wonderful Slice of
'It's a Wonderful Life'
Mike does the entire movie in about 12 minutes.
Producer Heather Frey plays Mary and special
guest star, radio show host Scott Austin joins
the festivities. Oh, yeah. There are a few WCPT
characters in the background singing
"Auld Lang Syne." I don't know how they
got into the studio. Honest.

  • Roy Diblik from Northwind Perennial Farm in Burlingston, Wisconsin, is author of the The Know Maintenance Perennial Garden, published by Timber Press. He sits in as Mike's co-host for the entire show as they was poetic on the value of wood mulch, rototilling, native v. non-native plants and other horticultural topics. Shawna Coronado stops by to talk about her book, the Illinois Getting Started Garden Guide, published by Cool Springs Press. Susan Lendroth explains why she wrote the children's book Old Manhattan Has Some Farms, and how she wants to teach toddlers to respect the art and science of growing things. Listener Steve, who called in the previous week to vent about the state of national protest, did something about it this week and calls back to tell his tale.

  • Mike offers a tip for shopping on Black Friday--don't do it! Veronica Porter talks about her food business, Ask Aunt V, which features healthy, local food that can be obtained at a restaurant but can also be delivered to you as you step off of the commuter train in Naperville. Erica Dodt from the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club, reports on the latest concerning the proposed Illiana Tollway. She is joined by Will County Board Member Judy Ogalla and Symerton Mayor Eli Geiss. Then Mike announces that his caroling group, the Frozen Robins, will be performing during the holiday season at the Morton Arboretum and the Chicago Botanic Garden.

  • Mike introduces another way to support The Mike Nowak Show, if only to prove that he can be as annoying as NPR. Bea Johnson talks about her book and website, both named, coincidentally, Zero Waste Home, and how she has set out to accomplish a nearly impossible feat. Josh Mogerman from the NRDC explains why, in abandoning transparency, an Illinois legislative committee might have fatally flawed the new fracking rules for the state.
