Pawpaw Trees (MM #3839)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. For years growing up in the Midwest, we used to play out doors and you were always dealing with pine cones and trees and even at owls we were dealing with, but we also had a lot of pawpaw trees. What I didn't realize at the time is the pawpaw trees that dropped their fruit, if you will, fruit was edible. And the reason I never realized that was because you don't see popov fruit in the store. The American pawpaw is a close cousin, if you will, to the papaya. But while it is edible, it's not very shelf sustainable. So the minute it falls from the tree, it starts rotting immediately. And of course, most of the time, the pawpaws we saw on the ground while we're rotten pawpaws and there were mushy in their gushy. And from what I've read, they're good to eat, they're great fresh off the tree, reason I'm thinking about this and I hadn't thought about pawpaws for years, was because I saw somebody the other day on Facebook or on Instagram, actually eating a pawpaw and it hit me at that point. We could actually eat those things. I never tried, but now I'm curious. The pop up doesn't grow much around Tennessee, but you can see them in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and I'm going to try to find one because I got to try it out.

Derek Jeter Is Intrinsic to the Story of Baseball

"Era, baseball is a story, beginning to end. You can not tell the story of a baseball that Derek Jeter's extremely meaningful contributions. He owns signature moment after a signature moment. If you're not a fan of the Yankees, I understand why you wouldn't want to watch them again. I don't want to watch David Ortiz's home runs, but Derek Jeter is intrinsic to the fabric of the game from 1995 to roughly 2012. He deserves to be celebrated. He would be and I'm gonna go one, I'm gonna go one more here. People say Jeter wouldn't be celebrating the same manner if he played in Kansas City or Milwaukee. I'm gonna go another level and say he would be much more celebrated if he'd played against the city or Milwaukee and was just as great. Do you see what they say about George Brett? He is the leader of an entire generation of fans for the entire Midwest. People think George Bret is unimpeachably a God. If they're generated play one of these small cities and won one to two World Series surrounded by good teams in these tinier baseball towns, he would be he would be the first 101 percenter Hall of Famer. He suffers from being a Yankee because people have Yankee fatigue. That's my hottest take it and I'm putting that on you. Do you agree or disagree? I agree with CCC Matthew played a half season with the brewers and he's still a legend there. Like he's gonna get a statue. Yeah. Derek Jeter, I mean, it's hilarious because now all of a sudden when people have whole definitive Hall of Fame cases and it's someone you don't like. Then we're gonna dive into the contrarian statistics. And we're gonna look at advanced defensive stats and how they weren't that great. And why that should knock him down a peg as one of the all time greats. I and that's the same people who will argue that that, you know, if you don't have enough championships, why do you deserve to be in the hall fame? It's just every argument is to satisfy the

Biden Surveys Storm Damage in New York, New Jersey

"President biden visited new jersey and new york today to states where hurricane ida caused catastrophic damage and death just last week now. The president was serving the widespread storm damage in those two states. New jersey and new york which bore the brunt of the damage and fatalities the death toll right now in fact is at least fifty with a few still and when the president left the white house earlier today he made clear that he intended to use this visit as an opportunity to make the case for his infrastructure bill and his broader economic agenda which does include measures to fight climate. Change at along the way. That's exactly what the president did as he met with new jersey governor phil murphy and other state lawmakers he made clear that he was trying to sell his infrastructure plan. That of course now is even more front and center in the conversation. The president also talked about the importance of recognizing and fighting climate change. She sounded almost like a meteorologist at times as he talked about. Wildfires in the west to epic grains in the midwest to storms in the south and beyond the white house says that one in three americans live in counties impacted in recent months by severe weather. This is a sign that president biden said climate. Change must be taken more seriously. Here's what he said this afternoon during a stop in new jersey where he spoke at the somerset. County emergency management training center. Every part of the country is getting hit by extreme weather. And we're now living in real time. What the country is gonna look like. And if we don't do something we can't turn it back very much but we can prevent it from getting worse this an opportunity. I think the country's finally knowledge the fact that global warming is real and it's moving at an incredible pace and we've got to do something about i think we're one of those inflection points. Were act or were going gonna be. We're going to be in real real trouble. Our kids are going to be real trouble.

"The midwest podcast this month on the podcast we are taking in the taste of the mid west and a really great way to do that is by following a food trail today. My guest tracy cocker the vice president of the butler county. Visitors bureau is also one of the creators of ohio's butler county donut trail. So that sounds like a really sweet trail to follow and something that is really. I don't know something to kind of take that. I don't know that the long tedium may be out of a road trip across ohio. Because it's a big state so tracy thank you so much for joining me today. Thanks for having me. I'm excited to talk donuts. How i think everybody's excited to hear about donuts as well. I don't think there's another food that that maybe makes people smile as much as a donut. I i don't know what it is about. It think it's the different variety and and all the unique things that people are doing with donuts. Now yeah. I always tell people that. A donut is a unexpected canvas for creativity. You can do all kinds of flavors colors type styles into donut in that variety is always fun is and you never know what you will discover so for people who aren't familiar with the state of ohio where is butler county located. Baller county is in south west. Ohio just between cincinnati and dayton so. We often say were the cream in the oreo cookie between those two areas. So it's a large county but we have lots of things to explore including donuts on fun. So where did the idea of a donut trail come from. Yes so that visitors bureau here. We're always looking for unique and interesting ways to highlight the small businesses of our community and oh six years ago more than six years ago. Now we had a little internal brainstorm and we realized we have so many artisan donut stores which is really uncommon. Because these are like small family owned places that are baking donuts in the night..

Climate Change, Bad Luck Behind MN's Smoky Summer

"Wildfire smoke is in our lungs and in the news this summer. And it's literally off the charts on minnesota's air quality monitors and inside that smoky haze fingerprints of climate change enhanced. Wildfires data from climate central shows. The number of large wildfires out west has tripled since nineteen seventy and the number of air quality. Alerts in minnesota is rising in tandem with these bigger more intense wildfires. matt carlson tracks. That smoke. he's a meteorologist with the risk evaluation and air modeling unit at the minnesota pollution control agency. I'm at welcome to climate cast. Thank you for having me. Let's start with the air quality records this summer. How high did particular readings peak last week. Our highest that we had on record was a daily average of two hundred eight Micrograms and that is an all time record By almost twofold for an entire twenty four hour period and these types of concentrations are something that is you know typically seen mountains in the west where smokers trapped so very unusual to see this type of readings in the upper midwest. And tell me if. I'm right about this. I thought i saw that. Saint cloud had a reading of four hundred twenty two micrograms. Cubic meter last thursday Isn't the top of the very unhealthy category of the air quality chart at three hundred. So that was literally off the charts. It was yes. I think i was looking at the numbers and these wildfire. Smoke driven air quality alerts. Haven't they doubled in the last several years and so we have just completed. Our eighth air quality alerts the season. And yes that's a record for us and that's three more than we have ever issued. The trend has definitely been increasing so the climate change connection with wildfires in the western. Us and canada is pretty clear. Now the amount of acreage and the number of large fires is going way up and minnesota of course sits down wind from most of these fires. Is that a simple way to look at our changing summer. Air quality here changes definitely set the primer for this these kind of long duration droughts mixed with periods of very heavy rain so that that's kinda the conditions we're looking at but in this particular season. What's been unusual. We've had cold fronts comes through multiple times now with no precipitation and that's not so much. Climate changes that is just unlucky weather for us the past couple of years. We've had the fires in canada but the cold fronts that have come through the area had enough moisture available to them to produce rainfall washed off the particular matter so it's it's kind of a combination both of climate change but also the local meteorology has been going on this summer has has definitely made the situation worse. Yeah and we've seen these dry fronts coming through this year in spades looking at the models. Hopefully it looks like we may get some rain and some of the fire areas in canada might get some rain in the next week or two the wildfire trends show no sign of pulling back in the west. What can we expect in the years ahead for minnesota if these wildfire trends continue. So what we've seen this year could very well be what we're going to start seeing in the future. There has to be a couple of things that will happen one. Obviously we have to have a busy wildfire season. That's not a given but something that we would expect more of a changing climate but then on top of that we have to have the meteorology that one allows that smoke to be transported into minnesota and to allows that smoke to get down to the ground. And so it's hard to say we're gonna see these really extreme air. Quality is on the go with a busier fire season. But it's definitely something that if we have more fires in the areas we'll definitely continue to have

Remembering Climate Change, a Message From the Year 2071

"Twenty two thousand. As we're a crux in human history they began with the first pandemic a slap to the face of everyone as they had to acknowledge that they were a single civilization on a single biosphere utterly dependent on science to keep them alive. Civilization is a fragile thing and although people started the twenties hoping to ignore that profound truth even after the first pandemic the great heat waves of twenty twenty three torched any such hope humans cannot survive combinations of high heat and high humidity that rise above an index temperature called wet bulb thirty five and that year the wet bulb thirty six events in india in southeast asia and in the american midwest killed so many more people than the first pandemic that it was made clear to everyone things simply had to change the arrival of the second pandemic put an exclamation mark on all that the question that desperate point was could things change could humanity stop it's destructive ways and restore balance to its relationship to its biosphere crucially. Could it lower the global average temperature of the earth in time to avoid killing millions more people more animals and indeed entire species looking back from our perspective sixty years later this of course looks possible because they did but it was by no means a sure thing you have to imagine what it felt like at the time when panic filled the air and no one could be sure. Success was even physically possible many declared that humanity was doomed. This is why that decade gets called the turbulent twenties or the terrifying twenties only much later did some historians began to call it the terrific twenties or even the roaring twenties although that's a historians joke and as usual a bad one it was not at all like the roaring twenties of a century before it was much stranger than that in these critical years lessons learned in the first pandemic put to use. The scientific community had rallied to meet that crisis in an unprecedented way. Unleashing a burst of cooperation and creativity never seen before and now they did it again.

Nellie was willie. Jones nelly nelly concerts can be kind of interesting. Two o'clock evenings can be two o'clock. That will jones will follow as full concert after that and then we hope those people who come for the nelly concert will stay on the fairgrounds because we have on our free stage We have a chase beckham. and so we're we're really excited about the land. We think that saturday is going to be one of the biggest saturday's we've ever had 'cause you start with entertainment at two o'clock and you don't finish up until seven thirty at the free stage was chased back so it's really exciting and then on sunday. I don't wanna send solo sewer short but on sunday. We have darcy lynn farmer. The ventriloquist will be here sunday. That's going to be an afternoon. Show coming family. Show three o'clock in the afternoon really good interest in that to read all the tickets. We just we're able to take the accident. We had booked for twenty twenty and them all over so we ray will now some people other taking their money back. Some people want to keep your tickets so it really had a jump. Start on selling tickets because some people just want those checks and keep them and it really roll forward nicely so so. We're very excited about the entertainment. All we have a lot of things happening are free Free stage two. We have a hypnotist ron. Diamond getting all sorts of other free events on stage the people's bank and trust for stage. That's fun i i like that. There's a mix of of the the paid. You know kind of marquee events but then you have the entertainment around the fairgrounds as well. Now when you're thinking about things to do at the fair obviously that comes a lot of walking a lot of eating what other what other things are. People going to find within the state fair obviously a lot of commerce. Maybe lots of of things to learn about Things like that we we call it and it's a huge event for for the state of kansas We call it a kansas largest classroom. We end up having twenty fourteen thousand students on on the fairgrounds and they can learn from everything about the go to the birthing center that we have They can go to the dairy parlor. They can look at our pollinator gardens all sorts of things as a great learning setting in environment and we have now designated building for education center. And we think there's just gonna be all sorts of exciting things happening there of. We always have new competitions twenty nineteen. We had a butter sculpting contest and that proved to be very bored. I guess people get a pound of butter stuff out of a merger. Exactly how that works and we also have a beer brewing contest as well which we have to have an advanced so those are things that again we had between nineteen people always fascinated with the large draft horses and we'll have a draft horse parade while also have some activities involving the draft horses barrel racing in that gun thing. So that's going to be really unique. And i think that's going to have appeal to him to a certain part of our audience and then of course we have to Kind of our light days and so what we've done is is four dollars after four on tuesday and thursday if you wanna come out after school or bring your family out after school. Four bucks invasion. We think that's going to be very important. Rosza gonna do some. We'd not have done before as a pub crawl Thursday evening abandoned. They'll be able to hit the various of beer vendors and try some craft roosevelt author. So it's fun thing. Of course every event like that needs of ascott. We've got ike the bison our new mascot for the kansas state sphere fear and traveling around the state trying to encourage people to come to the state fair. But i the vice is going to be new. Hope y'all all over the the Real excited about that as well. so again there's countless things to do at the kansas state fear. I think i'm just listening to you. Talk one of the things that has really struck me is the kansas has more. I i wanna say almost western culture to the state fair then you find in fairs that are further to the east you. You mentioned You know bulls and bull riding your vice in and a few other things that just really really struck me as having kind of that wild west feel to it and i think that that probably makes the kansas state fair quite unique for the midwest as well i certainly are are resurrected cultural and we have we draw heavily from the western two-thirds of the state to the state fair so there's a lot of agricultural interests. There's you again you all sorts of things. You have the governor's cookie jar. Somebody cookies ins judge being the best and we give that to the governor and then there's largest watermelon largest pumpkin. All those kinds of things. Roy celebrate celebrate. Kansas agriculture. Things have changed a bit in kansas. I'm sure they have every place. One time. He saw the state fair really signifying the end of the the fall harvest but a fall harvest continues through october pre planning of begins in october. So it's kind of a pause maybe between the.

Is there a reason for that. Well for the past few years. We've been a seventeen day fair. We have increased it to eighteen days. So it's not that much longer. Because we are closed mondays and tuesdays. This is a new fare format for us this year We added an extra weekend on the front end of our schedule and that was purposefully. We wanted to kind of spread out attendance and we know that people are most likely to attend Over the course of a long weekend so we added that we can For guests to enhance their experience.

I'm sure there was a whole whole lot of i. Don't figuring in mathematics and working with with the numbers that went into choosing just the perfect time yet so when the fair started it actually was held in october october. Twenty fifth eighteen fifty four And if you've ever been in iowa in october It could be miserable. We could have snow could have is. It can be bitterly cold. It could also be a beautiful day And so the fair sort of hopped around for a bit in the octobber. September range Mostly because it was hooked to agriculture. So it was a time when maybe the crops were ready to compete or farmer wasn't in the field in come to the fair so that's sort of how the date was developed in. It slowly moved back to august In we've had a few days like a week and then we've gone up to eleven days in eleven days Spot and we know that from staff here. You know that first week gun really busy. We're kind of working the kinks out. And then we get through that next part of the week. And we've by j in we strategically place it. So people have enough time to enjoy everything but that they don't get bored with you know maybe having at last over time there are other figures like for example. Texas does a whole month And they take like a couple of days off here and there which we try different things over the years than this sorta seems to be the window. That's fast right before school.

The work is very very personally resident for me i actually was born in tripoli. Lebanon the end of the civil war. There and my family immigrated to the united states the midwest when i was about five years old i essentially you know started my life in america as an english as a second language student I you know lived in a space where there just weren't very many muslim folks around and it really truly has faults like a full circle moment in a dream come true to be able to say to my inner child. Look what we've been able to accomplish with our community. Growing up in a space where i never saw myself represented or when i did see myself represented particularly as a muslim immigrant arab woman. It was often as a victim on screen. That just didn't represent the incredible matriarchal power and history of incredible women that i have have from and it is just. It's been such a pleasure to sort of focus in on how we can use our as an engine for social change and to tell our stories.

Stay on there. it's very pet friendly down in that area Some of the restaurants have outdoor dining and they have a section that is dining area. Just for you want to bring your pet with you so That's very nice. We we really liked that area. And it's kind of the hub of activity in the summertime. That sounds it sounds almost perfectly coastal because when you think of speech getaways you think. Of those big wide boardwalks with the shops in the restaurants and people right no roller skating or biking or wachner dogs so it sounds like that you know that east coast west coast getaway. It is in the middle of the country. it is. it's right there in the big thing with it being on the waterfront. Everything is so walkable so you you park your car We recently opened Our visitors center so Visit sheboygan just opened a brand new visitor center. That's right on the riverfront.

And they're like you can't surf on the lake so sure you can And lee particularly started really getting into some of the contest and really building up a name for himself from people. Like were you from while. I'm from chicago -sconsin and they're like the -sconsin house that's that's where you make cheese and you have farms and cows. You keep surf and like yes. You can So we kind of evolved over the years with them. They created what was called the dairy lands. You don't of course you gotta play up on the plan on the dairyland surf classic which they started in nineteen eighty eight So you know through word of mouth and the you know the surfers kind of have their own thing and they go back and forth between florida and california and going to mexico and you really build up the reputation while the more they started talking about it and the more they got to know all the other surfers and surfers are tight. Knit communities stick together. They started bringing people. Here's kind of labor day weekend in september. let's kind of like unofficial gathering so people started showing up. they'd horsemen house. They'd sleep on their couch. Bridges lake piled up on the floor. Your typical surfer thing. It cut big.

It has incredible waterfalls and caves old man's cave on the main areas that people go to the little ends and cabins. That are all around. It are what began so popular lately.

"Back over my own. Kansas travels and looking at the tour guide the travel guide and things like that. It made me realize how much i still haven't experienced in kansas. And how much. I really need to get back there but if people are thinking about planning a trip to kansas in twenty twenty one what are maybe three highlights of a that are coming up for this year. That maybe they should consider. I'd say the twentieth anniversary of the santa fe trails happening here in twenty twenty one. Great stop is mahaffey stage Stop in historic site which is in olathe kansas. It's actually the only open remaining stage coach. Stop from the santa fe trail. You're going to go there. You can see experience. What life was like on the santa fe trail and stagecoach travel also council grove which is in the flint hills. As they they have great santa fe trail history. There there they have some festivals going on One of them. I think start july sixteen through the seventeen. There's a gunfight that'll be happening in some reenactments there'll be some famous old west folks wandering through town. There's going to be live. Music and food great bend. Kansas also has many events planned. there's actually a website. It's like two hundred santa fe trail anniversary. Kansas is where you can see it. Just a slew of events happening across the state exciting. Yes i know you said name. A few another one would be medicine. Lodge peace treaty. This is a festival that happens every three years in a huge huge event so eh taught First starts off with this large reenactment. Like i say largely not meant like it's a large professional reenactment It starts off You know it has the tribal indians. Kinda has some lewis and clark a reenactment parts. There's some wagon. Travel there some cavalry rescues. But then also just a part of the three day event. There's an intertribal powell. There's education about native americans in the plains. Tribes there's rodeo. There's parades every morning. I mean this town really puts on a big show and that was in a double check the dates on that one. That one is september. Twenty four th through the twenty six and Happens in medicine lodge. Which is in the beautiful gypsum hills of kansas. And if i can name one more Kansas is home to the walnut valley. Bluegrass music festival. It happens in winfield. Kansas in it is the third weekend in september. And i can tell you this event you have generations four generations that have gone to this festival and it is centered around bluegrass. But there's a lot of people that have gone there like. I'm not the biggest bluegrass fan. I go for the experience. There's people that camp out a month in advance or month total before the event they have this thing called the land rush in. That's when everybody is rushing to the campgrounds and throughout the day you have your main stages you also have. It's also the world championship of flat guitar. Picking that happens there but also the magic comes at night when people are being in you. Have these set campgrounds. They'll have their names and they all have little stages on and you can see a merging bluegrass artists. It can be four in the morning and you might see a twelve year old boy picking his heart out there like. Oh my gosh. I can't believe i'm experiencing this and then winfield itself is fun There's a bunch of trails and outdoor activities to do while you're there for the festival Cool foodi stops. There's a cool winery. That also has live music on the weekends. So those would be my top three for twenty twenty one and you're you're looking to travel to kansas those all just sound credible. I don't know it again..

"Take a screen shot and tag me on instagram. At jodi halstead and leave just a few kind words. I really appreciate it now. Let's start exploring the midwest. I everyone thinks so much for tuning in again to the exploring the mid west broadcast now. If you have ever driven across kansas from the east to the west you begin to understand the sentiment that inspired brewster higley to penn my western helm which was later known as home on the range. My guest today is coby. Carry the pr and communications manager for kansas tourism hobie. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you for having me. So i am really excited to talk about kansas. Because it's a state that if you enter along the eastern border at the mississippi river it feels very very urban but as you continue west you really you encounter those wide open spaces and there are times that you can feel like you are just completely alone. Yes that's true but also people mistakenly think that western kansas that there's not stop to see and do and culture and so you can't have that feeling of being alone buying that soulless speak also these hidden gems all across kansas. So do you think there are any misconceptions. That people have when they when they think about kansas. Oh absolutely that were flat. That were boring. There's nothing to do you know we. We hear those words quite frequently and they're just so wrong wrong now. Let's start with that whole you know. The state is flat. Kansas has some amazing rock formations. That really feel almost like utah. Yes absolutely so we have a new state park. It opened two years ago. It's called little jerusalem badly state park and it's part of the badlands and it's this beautiful park with cool about his as you're driving up you can't see it. It's like once you walk up and hit alleged and you can just see all these nine. Aubrey chalk formations. It's beautiful people. Don't think about it when they think about kansas. There's also in that area of western. Kansas there's monument rocks there's castle rocks and all that's from. Kansas was actually the inland sea. So these are the rocks that remaining from when it was was this inlands dean. It's also a great great spot for a dinosaur lovers. There's been great archaeology. This happened in that part of the state but also in north central kansas. We have rock city. Which are these mounds of dakota rock formations. There's mushroom rock state park. So there's there's lots to sink in this it's not flat we have rock formations. We have mount sunflower. Which is the highest point in kansas. And then anybody who has ever done any gravel grinding. That is like the grabble mountain biking type stuff have done like the dirty kanza trail will tell you. Kansas absolutely not flat. And you know when you when you talk about how you can't really see The badlands area. Until you're on top of it you kind of have to wonder what those pioneers and early.

"Like susan. A you like state park. That is a little more difficult to get to and probably not as many hiking trails as i task. Yeah so it's actually a national park. It's voyageurs national. Park is kind of unique because actually over. A third of the park is only accessible by water. So you can paddle or rent a boat or bring your own boat. But it's really meant to be explored by water It's kind of located central minnesota along the border with canada. So it's also true northwards experience that you that you wanna have here in minnesota. That's you know that's one of those places. I think that people don't realize number one how vast it is and number two how dark it can get both voyagers national park and the boundary waters canoe area are certified as international dark sky places. And that's that's a hard certification to get because we have so much ambient light from so many things. And i find that to be really exciting. Minnesota has not one but two dark sky areas a huge designation for those both to cheese relating for stargazers or if you want to chase the northern lights. It's a great opportunity here in minnesota speaking of chasing the northern lights. How often do those show up. And how north do you actually have to be to see them optimally. Yes so you can travel to norway or alaska or any of those places. We also have the northern lights here in minnesota from between around october to march. And you look has to be on your side of the start. The skies have to be clear but really the northern border lung canada up the gun flint trail near grand marais cook county. Also were grandma says and then voyagers national park in the boundary. Waters are all airings. If you're lucky you can chase them and hopefully get a glimpse here in minnesota and minnesota has something that most people probably know about with national parks and that's like a stamping system or something like that right. Can you tell us a little bit about the minnesota state park club. The passport club is an awesome way to explore. We have seventy five state parks and recreation areas. I've been fortunate to live in a number of different states than i can say that minnesota state parks or some of the best that i've experienced in so you earn a stamp at each of the different perks that you visit kind of forces you to try out some new parks or explore new areas and bonus you earn free nights of camping as you hit milestones along spelling your passport so it's just a really fun way to get out and exploit the state that is really i didn't know about the three campaign. Minnesota also has some really great off..
