    Indycar's Simona de Silvestro, Catholicism history and Panther conservation

    in Travel

    On today’s show World Footprints explores the plight of the endangered Panther, we chat with one of the rising IZOD Indycar stars Simona de Silvestro, and we also view Catholicism through the lens with Father Robert Barron.  As a special bonus, we added some sound bytes and interviews from the DC Stop Modern Slavery walk to end human trafficking.


    Panthers once roamed the entire southeastern United States; from Florida to South Carolina and Louisiana.  However, the panther was added to the Endangered Species List in 1967 and today the remaining population is isolated in South Florida.   The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is at the forefront of the Panther conservation efforts and Park Ranger Sandy Mickey from the Florida Panther & Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuges joins us today to talk about some of these initiatives. 


    Then, we enjoyed a chat with one of the IZOD Indycar series rising stars, Simona de Silvestro.  Simona is one of a handful of female Indycar racers and she is one of the most prominent racecar drivers on the track.   She is the first woman in Atlantic Series history to have earned the most wins and pole positions, and the IZOD Indycar Rising Star Award.  Finally, we will talk to Father Robert Barron, the Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture at Mundelein Seminary and a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, about his PBS series Catholicism. This documentary illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world by exploring art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.

    Michael Freedman of The Florida Reptile Ranch

    in Pets

    The reptile trade attracts folks of all sorts to its hallowed halls; drawing the interested and sometimes unsuspecting in with the jewel-like living curiosities that fire our senses to a point where we just can't resist keeping them as treasured possessions. Most 'herpers' start their collections with some of the more pedestrian offerings available, then gradually gravitate toward the more challenging and/or pricier fare. However, occasionally somebody seemingly out of nowhere pulls the trigger for the privelege to begin the process with some of the most coveted offerings the market has to offer. In this episode, CK interviews Michael Freedman of The Florida Reptile Ranch and asks him how he managed to build such a potent collection of Ball Python morphs in such a seemingly short period of time. If you enjoy BP morph talk, listen in and get ready for some juicy chatter.
