What if I told you that everything you think you know about the famous NYC murder of Kitty Genovese, which gave us the psychological principle known as the Bystander Effect was all wrong? How would you respond when you learn that the famous sign Keep Calm and Carry On is actually a 21st century phenomenon and was never actually used by the British Ministry of Information? And finally, for those of us wondering if President-elect Donald Trump is the new iteration of the German Fuhrer, does history repeat itself?
In today’s Dolly Daily, the podcast On The Media presents Ghosts.
How the Dolly Daily Podcast Spotlight came to be:
Every day I take a walk with my little jack russell/rat terrier Dolly. She loves Victoria Park, so we usually head there first so that she can walk the oval and say hi to the Canada geese that make the park their shoulder season home. Then we head to Roos Island where she tries so terribly hard to catch squirrels, always coming up just short, as they scurry up the trees towards their winter homes. These days we also stop by the green space beside the Joseph Schneider House where she gets a little extra time for some ‘fetch’, before turning back up Queen to head back home. As we walk, I listen to a podcast. Since Dolly is just the cutest thing, and podcasts are awesome, I’ll be sharing the podcast I listen to that day, along with a short blurb about why I think it’s worth paying attention. I may miss a day here and there, and I trust that my readers will understand.
