Episode 2: My Name


Show Notes:

CHAT
-Origin of Podcast Name
-About Wool Sorter's Disease: I think it's actually goats that carry Bacillus anthracis, not sheep. I remember getting very upset in class when my professor said "and goats make wool, so it's called Wool Sorter's disease." Goats make cashmere. Sheep make wool. Get it right! (Am I right?)
Edit: According to Wiki, animal hides/wools can carry the bacteria.

  1. Your alternating 3 skeins description totally made sense.

    You should have Peggy sign it, I got my copy signed Tuesday, finally. It lived in my car a few weeks because I kept forgetting to ask.

    I hope the stress abates soon. It's no fun holding that much by yourself.
