It’s almost Halloween, and to assuage the fears of anyone who is afraid of rats (like Tiffany, see previous episode!) Katy shares a fascinating and little-known recording of rat laughter (yes, you read that right).
On this mini-episode, she also shares a touching piece of short fiction she wrote during lockdown that most likely many of our listeners can relate to in some way.
**This episode was sponsored by Clyde Hill Publishing—partner and publisher for founders, innovators, thinkers, and tinkerers. Today Katy reads an excerpt from their newest release Facing Death: Finding Dignity, Hope, and Healing at the End by former guest Jim DeMaine. Katy will interview the author live at a virtual Town Hall Seattle event on Monday 16 November at 7:30pm PST and you are all invited. Get your tickets here! You can purchase the book on Amazon, IndieBound, Bookshop.org, or at your favorite local bookstore.**
