    in Sports

    The Rising Apple Report returns for its 102nd episode! And even this far in, it will be the first time in our podcasting history we have had a guest host!


    Taryn "The Coop" Cooper, of her blog/podcast "A Gal For All Seasons," joins us to take hosting duties for the week. Joining her is the Mets Fan Incarnate himself, Faith and Fear in Flushing's Greg Prince.


    The Mets wrap up their only visit to the Windy City today, a trip that has not gone remotely well with 3 straight losses to the Cubbies. We'll reflect on the series and what the Mets should do to right the ship as Washington, a game and a half back, slowly creeps forward.


    We'll also take a look at how the transitioning Brewers have been doing as they invade the Citi this weekend.


    And as always, we'll discuss the players to wear #2 in the history of the New York Mets, as well as look back on the 2002 squad.


    So, join us at 9pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!

    Author talk, giveaways w/Aline Ohanesian, Patricia Park & Kirstin Valdez Quade

    in Books

    You have until Friday, May 8, to enter to win the books featured on this episode of the Literary New England Radio Show, where we feature:



    Aline Ohanesian on Orhan's Inheritance, a novel that shifts between the last years of the Ottoman Empire and 1990s Los Angeles. It tells the story a young Turkish man who leaves his family's small village, to travel to the US, to discover why his recently deceased grandfather bequeathed the family home to a woman his family has never heard of--a woman who lives in a facility for elderly Aremians. It's a novel that brings a neglected time in Turkish history to life, spanning decades, honoring the resilience of the human spirit and illustrating the depth of love.
    Patricia Park on Re: Jane, a Korean-American retelling of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, set in Manhattan and Seoul. Its protagonist, Jane, is a an orphan trying to escape from Flushing, NY, where she works in her strict uncle’s grocery store before becoming the au pair, beginning an affair with the father of the children she cares for and then fleeing to Seoul. There, she reconnects with family and works to accept who she really is.
    Kirstin Valdez Quade on her short story collection Night at the Fiestas. Set in northern New Mexico, the 10 stories plunge into the fierce, troubled hearts of characters defined by the desire to escape the past or else plumb into its depths: A deadbeat father of a pregnant teen who tries to transform his life by playing the role of Jesus; a young man who discovers that his estranged father and a boa constrictor have been squatting in his grandmother’s empty house; a lonely retiree who becomes obsessed with her housekeeper; and others.

    Unusual Show: Topic discussed: Re-Homing Your Unwanted Fish

    in Podcasting

    Healthy fish  should never be a problem to get rid of. Any of the following options is preferable to dumping or flushing:


    Local Fish/Pet Shop - See if they will take your unwanted fish. Some will even pay you a small price for them.
    ?Other fishowners - Advertise if you have to, you'll be surprised by how many fishowners are willing to adopt your fish.Fish Clubs - Check to see if there is a fish club in your region. Odds are someone in the club will gladly take your fish.


    Schools, nursing home's, or office's - Any place that has an aquarium may agree to take your fish. If they don't have an aquarium, consider donating yours. Nursing homes and schools often welcome such gifts, and it might even be tax deductible.


    Diseased fish are a little more difficult to deal with. Obviously they cannot be given away. However, they should never be dumped into local waterways or flushed. Sick Fish that cannot be cured should be quickly and mercifully euthanized before being disposed of in a sanitary landfill.

    Whirl With Merle

    in Travel

    We've certainly heard the phras, "It's to die for".  Perhaps you can say the same for Dave's Killer Bread.  The company had the best in bread.  Organic, lots of grains and no high fructose corn syrup.  Plenty of varieties to choose from.  Looks like an excuse to create sandwiches just to eat it.  Maybe man CAN live by bread alone. Gabrielle Enfield, Brand Manager at Dave’s Killer Bread will tell us all while I make a sandwich.


    Queens College's Women's Basketball team in Flushing, NY made it into the Eastern Conference of the NCAA but took a loss in the first round of playoffs.  Nevertheless, this team had a winning season with lots of Kudos including a nostalgic game against Immaculata at Madison Square Garden.


    Elizabeth Gully, Captain of the team, will give us a recap of the season and her experiences.

    Ep 71 The Rising Apple Report - There Are No Off Days In Flushing

    in Sports

    Although the Mets are idle, the crew at Rising Apple does not believe in days off.  With much to discuss this evening, senior staff writer Michael Lecolant, and assistant editor Sam Maxwell will co-host the 71st episode of the Rising Apple Report.


    The Mets latest road trip has them heading to Philadelphia, where they will begin a short two game series on Tuesday.  Phillies season ticket holder Ted Matey will help Mike and Sam preview the series.  Once done in the City of Brotherly Love, the Flushing Nine will visit Colorado, then square off against the Marlins again in Miami.


    The Amazin's left home with a 14-11 record, and are looking to improve upon their 6-3 mark on the road. Their recent success is attributable to their entire pitching staff, as well as the defense that has cleaned up its act.  Travis d'Arnaud additionally appears to be coming around at the plate, but, because of Terry Collins' line-up changes, Lucas Duda has yet to settle into the clean-up role.


    Joining Rising Apple tonight in their greater Mets musings will be John Pielli, author of Passed Ball Show.


    Discussion of these topics, and many more Mets matters commences tonight at 9:00pm EST.  You can join in by calling 646-929-0337.
