“Howl Of The Dogman”
We explore the howling history of dogmen from as far back as ancient Greece to today. They called the creatures, Cynocephali. This alleged race was also described in the writings of Marco Polo, who claimed to have come across an entire island of anthropomorphic canines, before supposedly initiating trade deals with them. The cynocephali were prominently featured in works of art ranging from medieval pieces to depictions of St. Christopher in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

BONUS! Famous Poems (Updated for the Covid Quarantine)
by Rob Crisell and The Society of Classical Poets and shared by Host: Don Mast, Co-founder of Ruff House Marketing  Kilmer I think no eye has ever seen, A poem like this quarantine. E.B. Browning How do I glove thee? Let me count the ways. Poe It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom not-so-clean, That a virus there lived that you may know By the name of COVID-19. Dickinson Because I could not stop for death He kindly stopped for me – I told him that I had acquired My herd immunity. Angelou The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of life postponed, but not the bill. Shakespeare Fair is foul, and foul is fair: My 401k is barely there. Longfellow Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Or maybe it’s better to tell you the caper Of how I discovered some toilet paper At a Safeway only three miles from here. Eliot Let us go then, you and I, When the evening is spread out— DON’T TOUCH YOUR EYE! Marlowe Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove That yield the valleys, groves, and hills, So long as you can pay my bills. Coleridge Water, water, everywhere, But all the time we think: Who wants this water anyway With so much wine to drink? Burns Oh, my love is like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June. But my love says that she’ll murder me If this ain’t done real soon. Haiku by Joe Tessitore  I went to a show and I sat next to strangers a lifetime ago. Quarantine Nursery Rhymes by Connie Phillips  Oh happy day—it’s finally spring! The flowers bloom, the birdies sing… We’re stuck at home, so thank Beijing, And practice social distancing! — Netflix or YouTube, where to look? Your kids are home, you need a hook. They’ve heard it all, that gobbledygook… Do something novel—read a book! — This virus from the CCP, Upending all society, Made toilet tissue ironically Our most valuable commodity. — I ventured out to take a break, And thought that I should shop for steak… Instead, I went down to the lake With coffee and some carrot cake!

BONUS! The Gallitzin Spinster: A reclusive life hides a murderous secret
The Podcast About Everything BONUS: Stella Elizabeth Williamson’s obituary appeared in the Altoona Mirror newspaper on Aug. 28, 1980. It was standard, listing only the names of her parents — Alfred and Dessie Williamson — and that she was a member of Gallitzin United Methodist Church’s Women’s Society.  It was little to be remembered by.  But it was Williamson’s secrets that would drive discussion and media coverage in the coming months and years. They were secrets her neighbors and acquaintances would find hard to believe. They were the stuff of horror movies, and they inspired Williamson’s posthumous nickname — the Gallitzin Spinster. - Story credit: Sean Sauro, August 9, 2018   Bonus Host: Don Mast, Co-founder of Ruff House Marketing  Contact Don by email at donald@ruffhousemarketing.com, Storyteller, and Co-Founder of Ruff House Marketing.
