SORT BY Relevancy
At some time in our lives, we've all had superstitions: step on a crack, break your mother's back, crossing your fingers, looking for four-leafed clovers, throwing salt over your left shoulder. This week on Conundrum with Cougar and Slider, we look at the objects some cultures hold as lucky - talismans, charms and amulets. What is their history? How do they work? Do they work? What are their origins? Join us this Thursday, November 6th at 5:00 PM Eastern, 4:00 PM Central and 10:00 PM UK to find out if and how your charm works!
Becca Roth has been writing stories and screenplays since before she was old enough to type.
When she was little, she would pace back and forth in her family’s computer room while her mom transcribed Becca’s excited spouting of The Wizard of Oz 2: Dorothy’s Roller-Blading Adventure. (The film has yet to be produced.) Becca made her first short film, Kings and Queens, at the age of seventeen, and has been writing and directing ever since.
She graduated from Kenyon College in 2010, where she studied film, drama, anthropology, and finding four leaf clovers. After spending her first year out of college working for tips and crewing on other people’s projects, she set out to make her first independent film. With her tip money, she made Rain in Summer, a short film that went on to screen at nearly a dozen
film festivals nationwide, picking up several awards along the way.
She has just completed the feature-length documentary, One: A Story of Love
and Equality. She is extremely passionate about this project, and can’t wait to see where it will go. (Hint: It just won "Best Director-Feature Documentary" at the Queens World Film Festival).
Becca lives in Brooklyn with her girlfriend and two mischievous kittens, Oliver and Twist (both female).

Sagittarius: The Infectiously Optimistic or
The Ineffectively Irresponsible?
Wednesday, July 8th, 8PM, PST
We leave the dark oceanic lair of Scorpio and emerge into the golden light of in born luck that is Sagittarius. It is here that we approach the final four signs of the zodiac and since the ego was officially killed by the flames of Scorpionic desire, Sagittarius, by being a “child of bounty”, SHOULD behave as an “ambassador to the universe” by showing the self that a much bigger plan exists – that of the universe. I emphasize the word “should” because time and time again I find that the sign that is truly given so much not only doesn’t share their bestowed bounty but blatantly squanders it.
I’m stunned whenever I ask a Sagittarian “Do you consider yourself lucky?” to get a very lackluster response of “I guess.” or “Kind of.” Being ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck, fortune and opportunity, Sagittarians are walking 4 leaf clovers, possessing a knack for having the most amazing timing for being in the right place at the right time and a luck factor that leaves the rest of us speechless! But as I teach that everything in the universe has a price, so too does being born lucky. Without a sense of discipline, work ethic, and focusing on the belief of “goodwill towards men”, dumb old luck has a way of becoming terrifying and ugly past a certain age and can end up devouring the person who possesses it by making them the most embarrassing of hypocrites and ineffectively irresponsible with everything they do. Sounds like the nicest of fairy tales gone awry, doesn’t it?)
The inherent luck of the Sagittarian is what makes them the eternal optimist, even when things seem anything BUT hopeful. The icon that I have chosen for Sagittarius is, I feel, my best piece of writing to date and my choices for Sagittarius’ Song of the Day are powerful to say the least. Both are quite apropos for these uncertain times.
